It was a frosty start to the day Tuesday morning as volunteers sold packages of a dozen cupcakes at Confusion Corner.

Cupcake Day was in support of the SMD Foundation/Easter Seals Manitoba and helps provide assistance to Manitobans living with disabilities.

Between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m., commuters pulled into the Organza parking lot and picked up their sugary treats from the Cupcake Corner.

Visitors to the cupcake drive-thru also received a cup of Starbucks coffee, and a copy of the Winnipeg Free Press.
