TASTY TUESDAY: Weeks-old Gigi’s Cupcakes takes Christiansburg by the sweet tooth

Gigi's offers the New River Valley some sweet treats and an escape during troubling times

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. – Shane and April Lefkowitz first opened the doors to Gigi’s Cupcakes three weeks ago. In that short amount of time, the dynamic duo has built quite a reputation.

When we visited Gigi’s, Shane told us, “We just had a customer come from over an hour away just because they heard about it.”

One customer nearly cleared the case, by ordering three of everything. The recipes have been perfected. The decorating has been mastered, and the menu offers a range of options to keep things exciting with each visit.

Some flavors include, “Red velvet, cookie monster, miss unicorn, salted caramel, dreamsicle, the lemon.”

Add that to a star-studded lineup, and you’ve got a premiere spot in the NRV!

Lefkowitz tells us, “We have one of the best cake decorators in the area…hands down.”

This will go a long way once they start doing wedding cakes, tastings and birthday cakes.
