A Chat with Faabecupcakes
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We bake fresh cupcakes daily. We create soul food–inspired cupcakes: German chocolate, banana pudding, sweet potato, and strawberry cheesecake. We use the highest quality ingredients, such as Mexican vanilla and Dutch cocoa powder in our baking process. All our products are baked with love.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
We prepare a strawberry cheesecake cupcake to die for. Fresh strawberries and strawberry puree are blended into our home made strawberry mix of eggs, flour, baking powder/soda, and strawberry emulsion. Our icing is a strawberry cream-cheese icing with a cream-cheese filler.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Our business was inspired by the love of our kids and the love of baking delicious treats. Faabe is an acronym of our kids’ names: Frederick, Ajani, Alexia, Blessing, and Elisha. Our kids allow us the strength and direction to push forward day to day.
What do you love most about your job?
We’re a small family-owned bakery and when you enter our establishment you’re greeted as if you’ve known us your entire life. We have the best customers and we love the constant excitement and cheerfulness our customers display upon entering our store.
