What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I began baking 22 years ago and have developed a following for my cakes. So, with the cupcake craze came the idea that Asheville needs a cupcake bakery. So, away we go. People love a La CupCakes!
What do you love most about your job? I love to be creative and what better art form than a yummy one you can eat. Just hearing the comments, ooohhhhs and aaaaahhhhhhs, when someone comes in to the shop makes all of our hard work worthwhile.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I had a lady come to the shop about a month ago. She blasted thru the door and exclaimed, "I have been dreaming of your cupcakes." Turns out she had tried them at a party and couldn't wait to come in the shop.
