USA Today was one of the first to notice, relating Kristin’s story to its universe of readers. “When I told people I was leaving my job in New York and coming home to open a cupcake store, it was pretty much the same reaction: ‘Uh, good luck with that,'” she told the paper. Good for us, she hadn’t listened—and neither had her father, who worked side by side with her preparing Cupcake DownSouth’s flagship store (then called simply “Cupcake”) on Charleston’s famous King Street.
Since then Cupcake DownSouth has been a favorite among locals and visitors alike. The bakery has earned national acclaim after being featured on Martha Stewart Living Radio, The Ellen Show, Budget Travel magazine, Southern Living, and more.
