RICHMOND, Va. — While much of the nation awaits the release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” here in Richmond on Dec. 17 we can also look forward to the debut of Star Wars-themed cupcakes.
Flavors can be pre-ordered by calling 355-2253 and saying “I’ll collect the bounty!” At least, that’s what Carytown Cupcakes said to do.
The six cupcakes will be available through Dec. 31. The flavors are described below.
Carytown Cupcakes also serves local products on tap, including craft beers by Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and ciders by Blue Bee Cider. They offer a local wine selection from First Colony Winery in Charlottesville.
The shop is closed Dec. 23,24 and 25. They reopen on Dec. 26.
