BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A Biloxi bakery is one of 50 bakeries across America, one in each state, teaming up with Facebook to give away sweet treats.
As part of Facebook’s new birthday stories promotion, Cheeky Monkey will be giving away free very vanilla cupcakes on Friday starting at 10 a.m.
The staff was busy on Thursday getting ready and making all those cupcakes.
“We were a little nervous at first because we thought how are we going to do this on top of Mother’s Day and graduation, along with just our regular weddings and birthdays we have booked, but then we were like we couldn’t pass it up,” said Jennifer Noble, Cheeky Monkey owner. “Then we found out that we were in the same category as Sucré in New Orleans and the Flour Shop in New York. Then we were really thrilled because that is quite the class to be involved in.”
Facebook representatives will also be in the bakery on Friday explaining the new way to wish people a more visual and memorable happy birthday.
Noble said each person who walks through the door on Friday will receive a free cupcake, but the supply will be limited so people are advised to come early,
