Problem: you are near, but not in, Seattle, and want a cupcake. STAT! Well, instead of driving all the way to Seattle like a jerk, you can now pick up a dozen cupcakes right on your home turf via Cupcake D'Lish, a new custom-order cupcakery. But since everything tastes better with a backstory, let's have a little interviewsy with the baker who makes the magic, Jennifer Morin:
Cupcake D'Lish. Tell me baby, what's your story? It all just came to me one day out of the blue that I really needed to find a useful outlet to vent my artistic talent through! I tried different things and baking just seemed to stick! Honestly I was excited about baking because I would be able to decorate. The cake part would come with time.
Cake or Pie? Definitely cake.
Pants or Skirt? Skirt (steak) that is!
Yes or No? Always yes. I only use no on my kiddos!
Vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry? Vanilla……it just goes with everything! Don’t let my husband read that.
Tell me about how you and your husband are working together on this business: what do both of you (respectively) bring to the table? My husband and I work very differently towards Cupcake D’ Lish. I am the artist and baker; he is my #1 taster.
What is the last delicious thing you ate? The last delicious thing I ate was my organic vanilla stuffed vanilla cookie.
Any plans to open a retail location? We plan to open a retail cupcakery in the near future. Definitely on the Eastside.
Please, tell us something I might not know about or expect of you. Surprise us. I don’t like chocolate. (CS Note: But kindly, she will make it for the rest of us.)
What is next for you and your business? Our business has been growing by leaps and bounds with larger catering requests and the addition of another Farmer’s Market in North Bend. We are working our way towards opening a retail location.
