Ava's Cupcake Shoppe
Michelle Spell's interest in baking began at a young age, when she was exposed to chefs in her family and underground bakeries in her Italian-American neighborhood in New Jersey. After deciding to pursue her passion, she opened Ava's Cupcake Shoppe, where she creates sweet and savory cupcakes, pies, and breakfast pastries from scratch. Although any of Michelle's concoctions are capable of making mouths water and knees tremble, she excels at unusual flavors, such as cornbread cupcakes stuffed with slow-cooked pulled pork or Guinness-infused cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting. The inventiveness of her confections even helped her win first place on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars and second place on its spinoff, Cupcake Wars: Cupcake Champions.
