The food truck operated by a Chesterfield cake shop and bakery picked up some national acclaim Tuesday when Sarah's Cake Stop was voted Best Dessert Truck of 2012 in an online poll sponsored by Mobile-Cuisine.com.
The mobile version of Sarah's Cake Shop started rolling in June of 2010 and was one of the first of a wave of food trucks that now regularly comb the St. Louis area. Sarah's Cake Stop specializes in serving a wide variety of specialty cupcakes, usually rotating daily.
Sarah's Cake Stop was one of 12 finalists to make it to the final round of voting, which ran over a two-week period and wrapped up Dec. 7. According to Mobile Cuisine, the on-the-go cupcake bakery grabbed 29 percent of the total vote, trailed closely behind by another Missouri nomination, 3 Girls Cupcakes out of Kansas City, which came in second with 27 percent of the vote.
In a Facebook post Tuesday, Sarah's Cake Stop thanked all those who had participated in the online contest.
"This is really cool but I will say it was made fun by our friends in KC 3 Girls Cupcakes who in my mind could have been named CO-Dessert Trucks of 2012. Thanks to all who took time out of their day to vote for us!"
The win will also earn Sarah's Cake Stop some free press, as Mobile Cuisine said they would be writing a feature on the bakery later this week in a statement announcing the results.
