April Showers Bring Cupcakes and Lemonade! Hey Cupcake! and Austin City Lemons are Together Forever Plus the Arrival of Purple Rain and Our Spring Six Pack Posted on 03 Apr 12:15

We’re squeezed with excitement to announce that Austin City Lemons and Hey Cupcake! are now under one umbrella! All Austin City Lemons’ signature products (Cup of Happiness, sweet tea, fancy flavors) are officially available for purchase at all Hey Cupcake! locations.

Grant Sanregret

Austin City Lemons believes everybody deserves the opportunity to be happy every day. No matter the daily challenges you face, you should always take some time for yourself and just be happy. If we can be happy first, it’s contagious and we can bring happiness to everyone.

This attitude arose after owners Grant and Jennifer Sanregret’s son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, which required physical therapy, multiple breathing treatments, and prescription drugs daily. Although CF doesn’t currently have a cure, Grant and Jen saw the way their son handled these challenges and how optimistic he still is today. Through the love and hopeful attitudes they experienced through the CF Foundation, they were inspired to create “Cups of Happiness” to show no matter the obstacle in life, your attitude will be the driving force in your every day success!

Wanna make your day a little happier? Come grab your Cup of Happiness (as seen in Food Network Magazine) directly at our lemon stand at our SoCo corner. Need to grab your pre-order? Swing by the Burnet bakery and swipe a sweet tea or make it an ice-cold slushie. You can also up the fancy factor by adding in magical mint, lavender love, blueberry bliss, or one of our weekly special ingredients. Catering orders with 5 gallon Buckets of Happiness and The Whole Package are available as well.

Purple Rain

April’s forecast? It’s raining cupcakes here at Hey Cupcake! With spring’s arrival, we’re looking forward to the return of our delicious Purple Rain cupcake. This tasty cake features a lemon cake topped with fluffy blueberry cream cheese frosting and topped with a fresh blueberry. We know you’re hopping like a bunny with excitement! Our seasonal cake will be available from April 1st until April 30th at all of our locations

In addition to Purple Rain sliding back onto the scene, we’ll have our buzz-worthy Spring Six Pack as well. With two Purple Rain, two Sweetberry, and two Vanilla Dream, this punch-of-flavor pack will certainly brighten up any cloudy April day. Each of our spots will have the Spring Six Pack until April 30th for $24. Spring Six Pack
