A Hibbing 13-year-old received a real special treat and act of kindness this weekend.
Mattison Johnson was visiting the Twin Cities with her family, when she learned Nadia Cakes was nearby.
Nadia Cakes was a season winner of Cupcakes Wars, a show that is Mattison's favorite, according to her mom, Stacey.
Stacey said Mattison was excited to take pictures outside of the cupcake shop and buy cupcakes for her family with her own money.
But on the way back to Hibbing, Stacey said the cupcakes got soaked inside the cooler and were ruined.
"She was so sad," said Stacey in an email to Eyewitness News. "I felt bad for her, so I sent out an email to see if I could place an order and have some shipped up."
Nadia Cakes owner Abby got back to Stacey the next day, saying the cupcakes are too delicate to ship, but Abby would be traveling to Duluth this week and would bring a new batch of cupcakes free of charge.
Mattison was able to get her cupcakes and meet Abby, too.
Stacey said Mattison was so touched and that this act of kindness has set such a great example for her daughter.
