Locally owned Firefly Cupcakes has announced that it will be opening a second location in Spring of 2013. Owner Wendy Egloff has reached an agreement to renovate a space at 1008 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo. The space currently houses the renowned Zillycakes, which is slated to close March 9. Egloff is very excited to offer her couture Firefly Cupcakes to the Elmwood Village and Buffalo area.

Zilly Rosen, owner and operator of Zillycakes, announced her decision to close her storefront earlier this year after attempts to locate a buyer were unsuccessful. Egloff and Rosen met and were intrigued by the possibilities.

Firefly Cupcakes' second location will mirror the first with a showcase full of over-the-top cupcakes based on fun weekly themes. Their menu will be also be accompanied by Stumptown Coffee.

Also, new to both locations, a new gourmet cake menu will be available to round out their current cupcake menu. Renovation plans include two in-house dining areas and a cake studio for Zillycakes' Rosen, who will be in residence at Firefly. Rosen will offer cake classes, custom cake design as well as high-end event cake production, which she is known for.

Firefly Cupcakes' current location is based in East Aurora, right on Main St. and has been serving the community since 2010.
