A cupcake swap is underway in the SE Hawthorne parking lot of Lardo: Portland Monthly reports that Kir Jensen has sold her iconic cart the Sugar Cube, with plans to soon open a legit brick-and-mortar bakery. The buyer: Hungry Heart Cupcakes, the formerly mobile-only cart, will rebrand the familiar Sugar Cube trailer into Hungry Heart Desserts and remain parked in the Lardo lot.
According to PoMo's Karen Brooks, Jensen — who's received a slew of national press for her five-year-old cart and year-old cookbook — will soon launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the brick-and-mortar spot. No details have been released about its possible location. Hungry Heart Desserts, meanwhile, will debut on SE Hawthorne on May 4. More as it becomes available.
