Remember that episode of Celebrity Apprentice in which they raised money for charity by driving cupcake trucks around? Well, now that there actually is a cupcake truck, it’s happening in real life! Sort of. A press release informs us that the five-month-old Cupcake Stop truck was a “pioneer” in the mobile eatery trend (highly debatable) and goes on to tell us that on November 10, Joan Cusack will be serving cookies out of the truck in return for donations to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. If you want to be served by a real-live celeb (who’s slightly more likable than Andrew Dice Clay), here’s the day’s schedule.
