Who wants free cupcakes? Stupid question. Everyone wants free cupcakes.
On Friday May 10, Sugar Bakery in East Haven will be giving away one free cupcake per customer starting at 9 a.m.
And, if the name Sugar Bakery doesn’t ring a bell, you might recognize their blue cupcake truck riding around town. The bakery had also won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.
According to an article on WTNH entitled Free Cupcakes on Friday to Celebrate Facebook’s New Birthday Feature, the bakery was one of 50 bakeries to give away free cupcakes by Facebook to kick off a new birthday feature that will launch on May 10. The participating bakeries will not only be giving out free cupcakes, but also be providing information about the new feature as well.
Of course, we won’t tell anyone that you’re really there for the free cupcakes.
According to a press release from Facebook, this new feature is called birthday stories. The press release says that all you need to do is “tap on the birthday notification, shoot or upload a photo or short video or use one of our digital birthday cards.” And, it doesn’t stop there. The press release said that you can even add a music sticker as well.
Boy, birthday wishes have evolved from the standard greeting card.
