In the heart of South Philly, among the cheese steaks, canollis and soft pretzels, Ms. Goody Cupcake is making a name itself as the neighborhood’s lone cupcakery. Gigi Andrew, who will be forever known as “Ms Goody,” opened the shop at 1838 E. Passyunk Ave., Philadelphia in late 2011. Since then, she has already baked thousands of cupcakes and other sweet treats. Each day she offers 12 (!!) different flavors of cupcakes, ranging from traditional (red velvet), to unexpected (Elvis-inspired banana and bacon), to Philly-inspired (beer and soft pretzel), to the truly wild (chocolate covered potato chip). As a bonus, Gigi has a deal perfect for families on a budget – Saturday’s cupcakes are 6 for $10! (Limited time only.)
While the shop’s main focus is cupcakes, Gigi specializes in CUSTOM DESIGNER THEME CAKES!
