The Little Shop In Arkansas That Just Might Make The Best Cupcakes Anywhere
Sometimes Arkansas does make it to cable television, but frequently the Natural State is not presented in the best light. This Hot Springs cupcake shop did make it to basic cable, however, and they made Arkansas look good. You may recognize Fat Bottomed Girl’s Cupcake Shoppe from season two of the Food Network show Cupcake Wars. No, they didn’t win, but that doesn’t mean Fat Bottomed Girl’s hasn’t captured the hearts of locals and tourists down in Hot Springs. This little cupcake shop has been a favorite since it opened in 2011, and there’s no way that’s changing any time soon.
