The third edition of Special Delivery was small but great! Becca, Jen, myself, and Tim headed to the corner of 4th and Burrard on a beautifully sunny day. I’m unsure as to how many cupcakes we had but I know we had about ten tupperware containers full!
This round we had neon blue mini vanilla cupcakes with white vanilla icing (otherwise known as the Smurf cupcakes), coconut cupcakes with lime buttercream, red velvet cupcakes with vanilla icing, and best of all caramel apple cupcakes with a penuche topping!
The reactions from people in this location were perfect. Some people thought there had to be a catch, how could we be giving away cupcakes for free!? Well, why not? It feels good to go out and do something nice and surprising to unsuspecting people! We stood by the bus stop heading west so people getting off buses were in for a treat! A woman at Pepitas Mexican restaurant offered us free drinks but afterward we all headed to The Naam to gorge ourselves on food and have a beer.
All in all a great success! Thanks goes out to Len who took the photograph above and who was one of the lucky recipients of a free vegan cupcake! He was on his way somewhere but decided to stop, chat, and photograph the event. Links to come to more of his work and more photographs to come soon!
The March edition will be coming up soon and I think we’ll be heading back to our hood of East Van, so look for us on Commercial Drive in coming weeks!
