As Butter Lane Re-Opens, King of Cupcakes Plots a Comeback

Butter Lane Cupcakes, the East Village-based shop on Seventh Avenue between 4th and 5th, re-opened over the weekend after being closed for about a month due to some illegal plumbing work. The space's last tenant, The King of Cupcakes, however, has regrouped with a new strategy that will place them back in the neighborhood.

I ran into King of Cupcakes owner Garrison earlier today, handing out free cupcake samples outside of the Parkslope Eatery, just up the block from Butter Lane. He told me that they'll be selling their cupcakes out of that storefront, as well as at the Ivy Garden, the new grocery opening on Fourth Avenue, and also "lots of other places nearby."

They had a very rough start, but I'm glad to see that they're giving it another go. Hope they're more successful this time around!

Gee, Garrison, or however really is the owner of King of Cupcakes. Why haven't you called us to explain what happened to our wedding order...and our downpayment? Megan and Sean won't return our calls. Here's my post from another thread on this subject:

They took our order and deposit for our wedding cupcakes about two weeks before they closed. Never called us to let us know. We found out accidentally by walking by. Multiple calls to both Sean and Meagan have been unreturned. They walked with our deposit and didn't have the professional courtesy to let us know they'd gone out of business. We discovered all of this about a month prior to our wedding date so needless to say its caused some stress...not to mention we'll have to take the to small claims court to get our money back. Any small business failure is unfortunate but their lack of dealing with it professionally has left me void of sympathy for these two.
