In a few short years, April and James Forbes have gone from humble dreamers to established-and-celebrated experts in their trade: the tasty-baked-goods trade. Before opening The Cakeria in 2010, the couple sold their home-baked treats at the Dixieland Flea Market, according to the Oakland Press. By 2012, their cupcakes had earned them the championship spot on Food Network's Cupcake Wars—wars in which the kitchen-clumsy Napoleon never would have stood a chance. The key to the couple’s success lies in from-scratch recipes and highly creative flavor concepts; they bake with herbs, oils, and real butter to make confections such as chocolate cupcakes soaked in cherry cola and topped with swiss-meringue buttercream. Their cookies, brownies, and french macarons obtain their distinctive tastes from exquisite ingredients such as tahitian vanilla, dutch cocoa powder, and stardust from the Andromeda galaxy.
