Pipe Dream Cupcakes The “bakery-on-wheels” concept comes to Andover with Pipe Dream Cupcakes, a truck selling sugary cupcakes around the Merrimack Valley. Pipe Dream Cupcakes currently serves a variety of cupcake flavors, including traditional red velvet, s’mores, snickerdoodle and Nutella. “I bake all of the cupcakes each morning. I load up the truck and then I hit the roads of Andover and North Andover. All of the ingredients are fresh and there are no trans fats or shortening in my cupcakes. Selling my cupcakes out of a food truck enables me the opportunity to meet all of my customers and get to know them,” said Nadine Levin, founder of Pipe Dream Cupcakes, in an email to The Phillipian. Pipe Dream Cupcakes hit the road this past June. The truck is often located near the Town Hall on Main Street. Open Wednesday through Saturday, the truck’s location and hours can be found on Pipe Dream Cupcakes website: www.pipedreamcupcakes.com.
