When asked the question how long have I been baking, the truth is for as long I could recite the alphabet. My love for baking began with my grandma and mother, who always baked homemade goodies from scratch. I started out thinking a cupcake company which catered to special events would be a great idea. Little did I know, the requests for daily cupcakes would become a regular occurrence, which inspired me to open a cupcake bakery. I love anything cute and my SWEET love for cute little cakes and cupcakes is the passion that drives me. Besides… cute doesn’t need a reason, so celebrate any occasion without needing an occasion at all!
