Scratch may be new to town, but we are so excited to be part of the Hawkeye madness! We decided to open early for dedicated Hawkeye fans that didn’t let the cold weather stop them from cheering on Iowa against Michigan. 7am rolled around and we had cupcakes decked out in black and gold just like the fans that took our delicious cupcakes for tailgating! Our staff loved decorating and baking these treats for these fans and even got to wear their Iowa gear to work that day! We can’t wait for next year’s season to roll around!
