The Cupcake Collection
The Cupcake Collection is the epitome of a family-run business. In fact, it started right in founder Mignon Francois' living room. Francois didn't consider herself a baking expert, and she had no more buttercream in her pockets than the average person. She gives the cupcake credit to her two daughters, Brittany and Lauren. Ages 11 and 16 at the time of the company's founding, they worked alongside their parents to turn an old house in Germantown into into a welcoming destination for baked goods.
Since the Francois family perfected their from-scratch recipe, their edible empire has expanded to two locations and more than two dozen homemade flavors. A glance at the menu entices sweet teeth with options including strawberry cheesecake, pineapple upside down cake, sweet potato, and blackout—decadent chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse. They can even whip up vegan and gluten-free versions of their treats.
