BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A new cupcake shop is opening its doors this weekend, and its founder is a former East Baton Rouge Parish school teacher who has turned her passion for baking into a business.

Cupcake Junkie will host its two-day grand opening event Friday, August 25 and Saturday, August 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The store offers up gourmet cupcakes, bundt and layered cakes, cookies, Signature Junkie Jars, and Junkie Juice, as well as rotating specialties such as banana pudding, pies, and chocolate-covered strawberries. Pre-orders can be customized for special occasions as well.

Cupcake Junkie was founded by Robyn Selders, who used to teach in East Baton Rouge Parish. "Each order is personal to me. When my customers honor me with the privilege of serving them, I want them to taste the time, effort, and love I've put into each element of my product," said Selders.

The first 100 customers to buy something at the grand opening event will receive a free cupcake, and one lucky customer will get a chance to win a dozen free cupcakes each month for a year.

The two-day event will feature not only sweet treats, but also a face painting station, an Italian ice stand, and a DJ.

Cupcake Junkie is located at 12240 Coursey Blvd., Suite B in Baton Rouge. For more information, check out Cupcake Junkie's Facebook page.
