Flirty Cupcakes: Chicago, Illinois

Tiffany Kurtz and Chris Sewall were sick of their corporate jobs and decided to convert an old mail truck into Flirty Cupcakes.

Serving Chicago residents with their elegant creations wasn’t easy. The city’s vast rules and regulations around food trucks required some serious modifications to their old truck, and to top it off the city insisted they had to pre-package each cupcake. To solve the problem, Tiffany had the idea of creating tiny gift boxes for each cake, which all her customers adore.
