A small-but-growing Sacramento area cupcake shop chain is now also selling its frosting without the cake.
Icing On The Cupcake, with four stores in Folsom, Rocklin and Sacramento, announced it will sell frosting in 1 lb. containers for $5. The frosting comes in four flavors: chocolate fudge, vanilla buttercream, cream cheese and strawberry buttercream.
A press release from Icing on the Cake said the decision to sell the frosting to home bakers was prompted by customers.
"For years our customers have been asking us if they could purchase extra frosting to take home to enjoy on their homemade cakes, cookies or other baked goods," said Christee Owens, co-owner of Icing on the Cupcake.
The frosting will be sold at all four of the company's locations: 1121 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento, 2779 East Bidwell St., Folsom, and 5065 Pacific St. and 6839 Lonetree Blvd, both in Rocklin.
