A firm believer that cupcakes should delight both the palate and the eyes, seasoned confectioner Melanie founded her eponymous bakery as a means of putting her passion for crafting sweets into practice. Melanie used to only whip up treats for her family and friends, but now extends her talents to sate the sweet teeth of her customers with cupcakes in such decadent flavors as PB & J, strawberry lemonade, and banana pudding. Melanie also infuses spirits into cupcakes such as rum and coke, eggnog cream, and mimosa, none of which come with cocktail umbrellas that hinder quick consumption.
