Charlotte Cupcakes - SAS Cupcakes

Ever since I started doing these cupcake blogs I've heard about SAS Cupcakes.

There are a few cupcake shops that have gotten lots of word-of-mouth publicity around Charlotte and SAS is one of them.

SAS has two locations in the Charlotte area. The one I went to is located in a small shopping center at the intersection of Ardrey Kell and Rea Roads.

The outside looks is unimpressive. It blends into the surroundings very well. The storefront doesn't stand out as a, "I have to stop in there!' kind of place.

The inside of the store isn't as plain.

It looks like a Party America that's been flipped into a fairy princess castle. There are cases of candy that can be bought by the scoop. Large lollipops, cupcake photo frames, and pointy princess hats decorate the counter and shelves.

It's like a candy store, Party America and cupcake shop all rolled into one.

Somebody has been listening - Captain Planet movie in the works

Dreams do come true!

Alright, this may not qualify as a dream coming true, but it is pretty cool. It was announced this week that Sony Pictures is in final negotiations to make a live action Captain Planet movie is in the works.

I've already blogged about what direction I think they should take with the movie and why I think it will work. I hope it's successful, the way Transformers have been.

The project is already off to a good start since they have some good people on board. Don Murphy (one of the producers in the Transformers franchise) and Mark Gordon (a producer of Speed, Saving Private Ryan and Grey's Anatomy) are producing the adaptation.
