On a day known for flowers, chocolate and jewelry, one treat is changing the way locals are saying "I love you."
Valentines Day is one of the busiest days of the year for Sweet Lolas Cupcakery & Bakery in Wausau. Owner Tara Novak tells NewsChannel 7 they plan on selling at least one thousand cupcakes Friday.
Shortly after they opened their doors at 10:00 AM Friday morning, a lengthy line was already forming as people scrambled to get their fix of the sweet stuff. But what is it about cupcakes that makes your loved one feel so loved?
"I think you feel like you can eat a whole cake, but it's just in smaller form. It's just for you. It's a personal sized treat," Novak says.
With special flavors like "Mint To Be Together," Mr. McDreamy," "Sprinkled With Love," and "I Love You the Mostest," it's no wonder these festive sweets are flying out the door almost faster than the staff can bake them.
Sweet Lolas has far more than just cupcakes. They're also offering chocolate covered strawberries, heart shaped red velvet brownies and decorated butter cream frosted sugar cookies. But Novak says the cupcake continues to be the favorite.
