St. Petersburg can take a bite of fancy cupcakes

The Cupcake Spot, an indulgent Tampa treatmaker, is expanding to downtown St. Petersburg.

This weekend, owner Nicole Rogers is doing a soft opening, offering 16 cupcake flavors every day. The treats sell for $2.75 each.

Popular sellers are the "Better Thans," as in better than (insert sin here), which is a dense chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, and "Paint the Town Red Velvet."

The shop is at the Snell Building, 405 Central Ave. For more information, call (727) 825-0572.
