2012 Cupcakes, So Far

ACW’s New Commercial Kitchen!

It took a while… but we did it! ACW now has a new commercial kitchen located in the Globe Dye Works building in Frankford, Philadelphia!

Getting this space together has been a true labor of love and a constant learning experience, but with the help and support of the Globe Development Group and our friends at the Frankford Community Development Center, we’re growing and thriving in our new home.

And speaking of help and support, we have gone through this whole process with our good friend, Tegan Hagy from chocolate-maker LoveBar, who we share our space with! And check out the new LoveBar cupcake on our menu!

Pick up your order from our space to check out the kitchen for yourself!

Meet the New ACW!

ACW has grown a lot this year, and maybe the biggest change so far is that ACW has a new Chef/Co-Owner, Nima Etemadi!

Nima and I were best friends in college, but he stayed in NYC when I moved back to Philadelphia. Years later, with Nima as the Assistant Editor of Aperture magazine and me running ACW by night while teaching preschool by day, we both ended up quitting our careers to go to pastry school!

We just moved into an immaculate, new, commercial kitchen in the Globe Dye Works building, in Frankford, Philadelphia, and now Nima’s finally moved here, too! Between the new kitchen and the new team, I’m super excited about what 2012 has in store for ACW!!
