There’s a new cupcake business in town—Perfect Cupcakes. It’s one month old to be exact. And its owner/baker is Catherine Hamilton, a Cincinnati transplant who found her way here via California.
If you haven’t seen Catherine driving around in the adorable white mini truck that she imported from India, you can find her at the Inner Harbor, where she has set up a table near the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Taney and Pier 5 Hotel with her truck, dubbed Ms. Sprinkles. She’s right near the footpath.
Catherine says she was looking for a niche, where she could go to the people, and after more than six months of working with the city on permits, she found her spot at the harbor. She’s there from 11:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday unless the weather is blistering hot or it’s pouring down rain.
She keeps her cupcakes basic: vanilla, milk and dark chocolate, and lemon. "I wanted it plain and simple, sweet," she says. "There’s something for everyone." Cost is $2 a cupcake or $10 for a six pack. Check out her website, perfectcupcakes.com. Better yet. Stop by and say hi. I can vouch for the yummy lemon cupcake with green sprinkles.
