It all started with cakes. Lots and lots of cakes. Growing up, I remember that my mom used to bake cakes for every occasion. The first bite for me was always the best, as I plotted the best course for my fork to take the right amount of icing and cake (it was always more icing than cake!). As I grew up, my love of cakes never faded, but I had no interest in baking one for myself. I went off to college and studied chemistry....a far cry from anything food related, but who knew that the clearly-defined chemistry experiments would help me from losing my mind in the regiments of baking.
Fast forward to August of 2007: I was happily living in San Francisco and in my free time, loved to cook and entertain (no baking here!). I went to NYC that month, and for the first time, set foot in a cupcakery. Returning from that trip, I scoured my own city to find a place to satisfy my cravings of the perfect cupcake, but nothing could compare to the tastes from my childhood. I decided to create my version of the perfect vanilla cupcake, and then it snow balled from there...I was a mad scientist in the kitchen! My passion for baking continues to grow more each day with each new creation and happy customer. I enlisted the help of my significant other, Kevin, to help me with my dream . He happens to be the best taste tester/dishwasher/support person I could ever wish for.
And now my love of cakes, in teeny form, continue, and I pass that love along to you. I hope that you enjoy them as much as we do, and spread the love of teeny cakes to others! Thanks for visiting.
