CupCates is a company I started in my own kitchen. I have always enjoyed making cakes and cupcakes for friends’ birthdays. Even when I was a little girl, I would bake cakes to welcome new neighbors to the neighborhood. Later, I started making cakes and cheesecakes and selling them to some restaurants.
I started making mini cupcakes due to the encouragement of my friends. My friends like to justify eating mini cupcakes by saying, “They’re just mini’s — you can eat more than one!”
I started CupCates after creating a five-tier cupcake wedding cake for a friend. There was so much demand from others who wanted the same creation for their events that I decided to start my own business. I took the name Cate from my grandmother and voila, CupCates was born.
CupCates uses only the finest freshest ingredients, organic eggs, pure butter, and never never any shortening (yuck!).
We create wedding cakes with mini cupcakes on a decorated tier of your choice. The feedback from wedding guests has been overwhelming, and everyone just loves it! We do birthday parties, theme parties, and — a recent trend — pink or blue cupcakes with neutral icing and decorations to let your family and friends know if your baby is a boy or a girl. Kids’ parties, baby showers, wedding showers, surprise parties — you name it, and we’ll bake up some fabulous cupcakes for it.
