Two things in life really matter to Michelle of CC's Cupcake Heaven: family and baking. Fortunately for her, those two mesh well together. When she decided to channel her creative spirit and lifelong passion for all things tasty, her family was there to support her. And today they even help run the shop where Michelle and her team of bakers whip up cookies, cream puffs, eclairs, and their specialties—cupcakes, custom cakes, and wedding cakes.
These sweet treats come in more than 100 flavors that run the gamut from the classic to the extraordinary. Varieties that rotate throughout the month include a chai-tea cake topped with spiced-vanilla butter cream and a cinnamon-and-sweet-potato cake with maple-mascarpone cream-cheese frosting. And the menu goes beyond mini cakes, too. Custom-ordered full-sized cakes can serve as eye-catching set pieces at wedding receptions, kid-friendly birthday celebrators, or even extravagant Sunday breakfasts. Examples of designs that the team has tackled include a cake sculpted to resemble a graduation cap and an asymmetric, multi-tiered cake shaped like a roller-coaster track.
