The new Cooks n' Cakes bakery has opened on Rte 40 in Ellicott City and has cupcakes for sale today, according to their Web site and the guy who just answered the phone.
That makes this a big weekend for new sweets because Linda's Bakery opened yesterday as well.
Cooks n' Cakes is a cupcake specialist spot opened by two former public school principals. They took over the space vacated on Rte 40 when The Breadery moved to Catonsville.
We haven't stopped by Cooks n' Cakes yet. I'd take any reports below on early cupcakes. As I just wrote in the Linda's post, these new folks join a raft of nice sweets bakeries, including Oh What A Cake and Touche Touchet in Columbia, Bonaparte Bread in Savage, and Kupcake & Co. in Elkridge.

NEAR: Cooks n' Cakes is on the south side of Rte 40 west of Rte 29. It's the shopping center with a Starbucks facing Rte 40. The stores are actually perpendicular to the road. Turn at the Starbucks and then look a few doors down.
