What AS is on the tv advertisement?

There's an ad running for Small Business Saturday on t.v. I think it's by American Express. There's a real quick snapshot of an Airstream trailer configured as a concession trailer. (Maybe selling pastries?)
What year, model AS is it?
Anyone?

I'm not sure if this is the one you are talking about but I've seen the "Hey Cupcake" trailer" in recent ads.... its a 1965 Tradewind Airstream trailer

Yes, it's Hey Cupcake - There's apparently quite a few eateries in Airstreams in Austin. I want to know who's doing the trailers?

Confirmed. It is "Hey Cupcake" in Austin. Thanks to a friend's DVR.
I'm not far from Austin. Maybe I can saunter over there and have a gander at it.
They may have done the trailer themselves. Not much to it. I did my concession trailer.

I think Hey Cupcake may have more than one trailer, actually. It's hard to tell, but that's the impression I get from some of the news stories I found.

Airstream aside, I wonder if the cupcake craze is over? Was recently talking to someone who follows food trends; according to her, the two major cupcakeries in my area are not doing very well. The market, particularly in the U.S., seems to be over-saturated.

She thinks the next sweet food fad will be little pies.

I'm hoping the next fad will be GOOD coffee and donuts!!.
Back to the basics.

edglenn, who knows - maybe the old-fashioned coffee shop with homemade donuts will be resurrected?

Australia could use a few; it is the land of instant coffee. The upscale hotels do not have coffee makers in their rooms either. You'll find a kettle and packets of instant.

That cup of non-instant coffee, courtesy of Air Canada enroute home -
boy, did I ever enjoy that!

Isn't it fun how our eyes immediately lock into aluminum, wherever it is?

If you ever get to Grand Marais, MN, stop by this place for delectable donuts, fresh from the oven, and a cup of good coffee.

World's Best Donuts, Grand Marais, Minnesota

One of the things we don't like about traveling abroad is the inability to get good, brewed coffee. Plenty to enjoy and appreciate oversees, but just don't care for instant or french press. Always look forward to terra firma US and a cup of real coffee.

Maggie,

Boy, the coffee situation was bad in Australia. Not only that, when you find a joint that's half decent coffee wise, it's a "foreign language" when it comes to cream and sugar. "Flat black, flat white" etc. I finally figured out I'm a "flat white" person. (cream, no sugar).

The "World's Best Donuts" looks pretty cute, all right.

Tim Hortons is the national donut icon here in Canada. I guess I'm anti-Canadian or something - I don't like them. But their coffee is good!

My favourite donut shop is in Portland, Oregon.....

Voodoo Doughnut - The Magic is in the Hole!!!

I'm a flat white person too - I have quite fond memories of a French style bistro in Alexandria, and you can't beat Melbourne for good coffee.

For me, I feel the total opposite. I appreciate that it is different from back home. I love a good cup of coffee, but if the natives drink instant so do I. I think the best cup of coffee I ever had was a cup of instant made for me by a farmer in Central Mexico. It was not what was in the cup, it was the gesture from which it came. The creamer was instant too...

On the Timmy's coffee; you do realize that it is some of the most highly caffeinated coffee on the market? Just short of off the chart. It's their low slow roast that accomplishes that.

Has the cupcake trend ebbed? I sure hope so. I have never once bought a fancy cupcake. I figure why get three bites when you can get the whole cake.
