Charlotte Cupcakes - Decadent Designs Bakery

I went looking for The Blushing Bakeshoppe in Ballantyne, but I’m assuming it closed since I spent an hour walking around the Ballantyne Village looking for the shop. I tried calling the phone number that was listed on the Blushing Bakeshoppe Facebook page. It was still working, but I got the voicemail.

Turns out, there’s a new bakery right across the street. I stumbled upon Decadent Designs Bakery.

There’s a large display case of cupcakes inside, along with a couple of high tables in case you want to eat inside.

I wasn’t sure which cupcakes to get as there were several flavors to choose from. Three of them caught my eye though: a chocolate-covered Boston Cream Cupcake, a Key Lime cupcake with light green frosting and a larger Strawberry cupcake that was intricately decorated.

More Spidey to come too

Iron Man isn't the only super hero returning to the big screen in the next several years. You'll be seeing a lot of Spidey too.

"Sony's film studio announced Monday it has OK'ed the third and fourth editions of the webbed franchise, and that they will hit theaters on June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018," USA Today reports.

Andrew Garfield is already resuming his role as Spider-Man. He's in New York filming the sequel to last year's The Amazing Spider-Man.

It's set for a May 2014 release date -- the same month that X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for.
