The self-taught baker behind Baby B’s Cupcakes isn’t beholden to anyone’s ideas about the limitations of the diminutive dessert. Inspired by the vast array of sweets and tarts available in the candy and fruit aisles, she creates recipes for over a dozen eclectic flavors, from traditional chocolate and red velvet to maple bacon, raspberry-white-chocolate, and peanut-butter-and-jelly. Frostings and fillings provide additional flavors—cream cheese, banana crème, and lemon—into the moist, decadent mini cakes. Upon request, she can etch customized designs onto cakes, such as birthday-worthy Spider-man figures or brussels sprouts to encourage kids to eat their veggies.
