Cupcakes, the food trend that, like your ex, keep coming back no matter how many times you've said it's over, are in the Valley's news scene once again -- and this time, they're arriving in the form of the nation's biggest franchise.

Nashville-based Gigi's Cupcakes, which has over 65 locations in 22 states, is making its first foray into the Valley with three locations in Phoenix, Ahwatukee, and North Scottsdale set to open this fall.

Founded by Gina "Gigi" Butler, who opened her first shop in Nashville in 2008, Gigi's Cupcakes features over 30 varieties of cupcakes each week in flavors like banana cream pie, Merry Margarita, and a best-selling chocolate creation called Midnight Magic which Butler says will make folks, "Go out walking after midnight for..."

The Ahwatukee store, at 4910 East Ray Road, will be the first of the three Valley Gigi's to open (with a planned date of the second week of September) followed by the North Scottsdale location at 15807 North Frank Lloyd Wright. Gigi's Cupcakes in Phoenix, at 3925 East Camelback Road, has a planned opening date of Friday, October 5th.

NO ! No ! No !  Not another cupcake store.  They're messy, fussy and over rated. No out of state chains please. Our Moms can make cupcakes just fine !  Buy local. Support your local bakery.

Just what Phoenix needs, a McDonalds of cupcakes. I swear the two smallest town, mom and pop business type of cities that I've lived in are San Francisco and New York City

oh god, that Camelback one is too close. I am so powerless over those things. As long as they are good, of course.
