On the road with Sweet Miss Givings

SMG cupcake truck in front of Columbia College.

There are several cupcake trucks on the streets of Chicago, but Sweet Miss Givings is the only one running with a mission. The operation provides job training for people in need and profits go to benefit the formerly homeless and HIV/AIDS-impacted men, women and children of Chicago House. Great reasons for tracking down their location via Twitter (@SMGfoodtruck), right? Want even better reason? The cupcakes taste fantastic.

If you need more proof, listen as “Mobile Muffin Manager” Tony Mills shares a bit of his life on the truck and his favorite cupcake:

Don’t have time to track down the cupcake truck? Sweet Miss Givings cupcakes are also available at the French Market (131 North Clinton between Washington and Randolph). The carrot cupcakes are fantastic, but so are the devil’s food, yellow cake, and coconut flavors. Get a mini-twelve pack and try all four for $12. Individual cupcakes are $3 a piece.
