When life gives you lemons, turn them into zest-filled, Meyer-lemon-frosted cupcakes. So says Flirty founder Tiffany Kurtz, who ditched corporate America to fulfill her food-truck dreams. And when the city of Chicago said, “You can’t cook on that truck, dear,” she figured the most palatable portable of the moment was just the solution, and Flirty Cupcakes was born. Kurtz bakes her baby cakes at Kitchen Chicago each morning, then loads them onto a pastel pink and blue van to truck her treats to the masses, taking to Twitter (@FlirtyCupcakes) to announce when she’ll be at a corner near you.
