Cloud 9 Cupcakes to open on east side

If there’s any good that can possibly come from aviation layoffs, this is it: cupcakes.

Rita Deyle and Janet Mullin were laid off from Beechcraft in April and now plan to open Cloud 9 Cupcakes.

“I had tasted a lot of Rita’s cakes and cupcakes at work,” Mullin says. She says she and her husband “thought that Rita made the best cakes that we’d ever tasted.”

The business will be at 11333 E. Kellogg, which is just west of the Wal-Mart near Kellogg and Greenwich.

Mullin says Deyle is “teaching me a lot, but I’m more of the business part of it.”

The business will focus on cupcakes and cakes but will have specialty cookies, too.

Cloud 9’s tentative grand opening is scheduled for Sept. 12.
