The Cupcakery

The Cupcakery came about after lots of nudges from family & friends. In March of 2000, I had the desire to bake a cake for my son’s first birthday. After the first cake, I continued to make cakes for family and friends. It spilled over to my friends’ friends. This past spring of 2012, after making a wedding cake for a friend, I was encouraged by many to turn this hobby into a business. So here I am today at the beginning of a dream and seeing if I can make it a reality!


The decision to specialize in cupcakes came after watching episode after episode of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network. I have been a huge fan of the show and love to see the different cupcake shops from around the country.


I decided on a home-based business as a great way to start because it will keep cost down for my new business and, in turn, I am able to keep my prices low for my customers. I would love to open up a storefront someday but for now I am content to start this journey from home where the dream was first planted.
