Downtown Champaign cupcake specialty store Cream & Flutter has closed after being sold to new owners.
Nov. 17 was the business’ last day. According to a Facebook post, Cream & Flutter has been sold to new owners and apparently will re-open at some point.
Cream & Flutter’s location in North Carolina also is being sold.
“If you are wondering what will become of the businesses,” the post says, “each storefront is being sold to a different owner, who will be bringing new branding and new menu items to the bakery storefronts. So please follow along on social media for more updates about what is coming in the next few months!”
Cream & Flutter (formerly Cakes on Walnut) was known for its cupcakes and macaroons but also featured other specialty items, including Jeni’s ice cream.
Cream & Flutter’s closing comes less than a year after the opening of Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery along South Neil Street in Champaign.
