Move over ice cream man, here comes the cupcake lady! Tina Haas, owner of mobile cupcake seller Fluffalicious, drives around the Albany area selling fresh baked cupcakes.
Haas, who’s been baking since she was a teenager, was previously a schoolteacher working part-time at a bakery when she found an old tool truck for sale on Craigslist. She suggested the idea of a mobile cupcake bakery to her husband, and after a little convincing, he was onboard. When the bakery she was working for closed, it was just the extra push she needed to get rolling. “And now I couldn’t be happier,” she says. “I love the smiles we bring people; everyone we meet is so friendly.” Beyond smiles, Fluffalicious offers a variety of tried-and-true flavors and specials that change weekly. Everything she sells is baked fresh that morning. Among the most popular flavors are the Peanut Butter Cup-cakes — which sell out every time, she says — and the Rolo cakes (“You bite it, and caramel just pours out”).
