The Cup Now Celebrates April Fool’s Day with a July Fool’s Cupcake “ARCH CITY SLIDER & FRIES”
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, JUNE 22, 2020 — The Cup was very excited about this year’s April Fool’s Day cupcake, but due to COVID they had to hold off on the release until now. This limited edition treat is now a July Fool’s cupcake, just in time for 4th of July celebrations.
This year’s fools cupcake is inspired by an American classic, slider and fries. Perfect for a summer time backyard party or a curbside pickup meal!
To create a sweet treat that captures the iconic American fast food combo meal, The Cup’s creative bakers will use a vanilla cake topped with sesame seeds “bun,” chocolate cake “patty,” tinted vanilla buttercream “pub cheese,” strawberry jam “ketchup,” tinted coconut “shredded lettuce,” with a side of sugar cookie “fries” and Cakery Classic Dip-a-roo Sweet Dip “special dipping sauce.”
The Cup will be branding themselves as “Arch City Sliders” for the week long July Fool’s prank celebration.
“We have so much fun with this project, and every year it gets bigger and better,” owner Ericka Frank says. “It’s hilarious to hear stories of how our customers have pranked their friends and family — last year, two ladies who worked at an office dressed up as Italian chefs to deliver the April Fool’s spaghetti and meatballs to their co-workers. We look forward to seeing how much fun our customers will have with this year’s sliders and fries!”
Previously The Cup has created cupcakes mimicking mashed potatoes and gravy (2015), taco salad (2016), root beer float (2017), fried rice (2018), spaghetti and meatballs (2019).
Arch City Slider’s combo meal will be available June 29 through July 4. Customers must order online at cravethecup.com for pickup at one of their locations. (Central West End and Edwardsville, IL). While supplies last.
