Sweet Cupcakes to Celebrate Kambiri the Gorilla's Birthday with Banana Cupcakes

A group of cupcake shops is going to be celebrating the birthday of a gorilla who calls the Franklin Park Zoo her home.

On Saturday, November 5, the zoo will be having a birthday party for Kambiri, a baby gorilla who turns one. Part of the festivities will include free miniature dark chocolate cupcakes with banana buttercream frosting to the first 250 visitors to the Tropical Forest at the zoo, courtesy of Sweet Cupcakes. In addition, the group of shops will offer a "Bananas for the Zoo" cupcake, donating $1.00 from each cupcake sold during the time period from November 5 to November 11 to Zoo New England. The limited-edition cupcake will have banana buttercream frosting on a dark chocolate cake, finished with a banana chip.

Sweet Cupcakes has four locations in the Boston area, with three shops within the Boston city limits (School Street in Downtown Crossing, Mass. Ave. in the Back Bay, and Newbury Street, also in the Back Bay) and another shop in Cambridge (Brattle Street in Harvard Square).
