Lisa Brighton baked her first treat—a peach cobbler—when she was just 4 years old. She had some help, of course, from her great-grandmother, Hazel, who taught her which spices to use and which spices to throw over her shoulder. Hazel also handed down several generations of family recipes and a passion for baking that’s been in the family genes for more than 100 years. Lisa puts it to good use at Starz Cupcakes, which she co-owns with her daughter Connie.
Lisa and Connie estimate that they make 220 different kinds of cupcakes, including 17 velvets—a new take on the classic red velvet—in ultra-bright colors such as coral, teal, and purple. They also bake gluten-free cupcakes for customers with gluten allergies, and sugar-free versions for sweets lovers on low-sugar diets. And the tiny cakes are as beautiful as they are delicious; each one is topped with a dollop of frosting and decorative trimmings such as sprinkles, chocolate chips, or coconut flakes.

A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
Punctual wall stylists at Ellzey's Painting execute touchups and full-scale makeovers on drab façades using pigments from Kelly Moore. Professional painting sessions begin with a thorough visual inspection of the chosen area before paint paladins assist in moving furniture or hibernating uncles to free up working space. Brushers then coat domestic canvases in two layers of the same color, suffusing bedrooms with amber tones, bathrooms with cool blues, or dollhouses to match their host rooms. After walls get a complete coloring, acrylic specialists make sure to meticulously clean and clear their work zones.
The licensed and bonded craftsmen at Athena Maintenance & Construction approach every repair and maintenance job with a fresh perspective. They know every home is different, which is why they take time assessing each painting project, window replacement, electrical repair, and carpentry job before quoting an estimate. The benefit of this extra care not only shows in the quality of the labor, but it also keeps expenses within the client's budget.
The shamrock in Emerald State Painting’s logo gives a nod to owner Evan Hartnett’s birthplace of Ireland, where he first began putting paintbrush to walls. Now with 10 years of experience, he and his crew travel all over the Santa Clara area using high-quality Kelly-Moore paint to revivify interiors and exteriors.
