Lahaska now has a new treat in store for you. Joanne Jarin, pastry chef and former “Cupcake Wars” contestant, recently opened The Lucky Cupcake Company in Peddler’s Village. Her original location, established in Pipersville five years ago, has become so successful that it was time to expand, explains Joanne.
She adds that the Lahaska bakery is the only cupcake shop in the immediate vicinity. This small, custom bakeshop specializes in filled cupcakes. It is a scratch bakery, so everything is baked fresh daily on the premises, using the best quality ingredients
“Nothing sold here is made from mixes or comes out of containers, including the fillings or icings,” describes Joanne.
Unlike many icings that often taste too sweet, Joanne prepares a Swiss meringue buttercream icing, made with real butter instead of shortening. The end result is a lighter, delicious icing that makes you feel less full, yet satisfied.
