SAS is a chain of three, with the original in Delaware and the other two here in Charlotte. SAS bakes fresh every day; leftover cupcakes are delivered to the local firehouse.

Southern Cake Queen

(Cool because the owner drives a pink truck)

Venue: Truck; 704-287-8314

Website: www.southerncakequeen.com

Cost: $3 each

Gluten-Free: None

Owner Emma Merisier got behind the wheel of her pink Southern Cake Queen food truck in February 2011 and parked near Price's Chicken Coop on Saturdays. "I sell traditional Southern cupcakes. It was the right fit," Merisier says. Her cupcakes got noticed and she received invitations to the Huntersville Farmers Market, Center City's Chow Down, and private events. She communicates with her customers through Twitter.

Merisier's most popular cupcakes include Crimson & Crème (Red Velvet) with a cream cheese frosting, and Strawberry Cake with pureed strawberries and a pink buttercream icing. She keeps at least six flavors on hand and these change seasonally. Merisier's truck won't be out again until the weather is warmer; until then, she's catering events.
