Walk into La Bella CupCakes on any given day and you’re bound to find a surprise. That’s because each day the bakery makes available three to five different specialty flavors such as salted caramel, peanut-butter cup, and pears and champagne. There are also the mainstays—eight traditional flavors that are available every day, including strawberry frosting on vanilla cake and cream-cheese frosting on chocolate. Unlike any nickname you try to give yourself, the treats seem to be catching on; they keep popping up in colorful arrangements at local events, and since La Bella’s founding in September 2010, owner Elisha Lance has gone from employing a single person to overseeing a staff of more than eight at two locations.
