Prairie Girl has closed its last location and I’m so sad I didn’t get one final cupcake. Support your favourite small businesses. They need all the help they can get to survive this crisis. https://t.co/ViqVxAzrZ9— Tara Deschamps (@tara_deschamps) January 6, 2021
Customers are especially mourning the banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting and chocolate cupcake with strawberry frosting, and just their legendary icing in general.
