We are sisters who grew up in New York City, became teachers, trekked across the United States (Candice ventured first and then lil' sis Jessica followed) and landed in Colorado.
Admittedly, we both always had a "sweet tooth" and cupcakes ruled the sweet tooth's roost! A few years back, while playing house for real (5 kids between both of us), we started to seriously bake cupcakes - testing, baking, more testing, more baking until we felt the natural ingredient recipes were perfecto. We knew that someday we would open up a cupcake store so others could partake of the best tasting cupcakes - ever! Flour on our faces, the smell of sugar in the air...the kids running amok! "Eureka!" Jessica shouted (she has a penchant for words).
And there you have it, "Once Upon A Cupcake" was born. We just opened our brand new funky retro-chic, kid friendly store December 18, 2012 and we look forward to seeing you in 2013! We'll keep you posted on our "Grand Opening Party" we plan on having soon so you can stop in and sample some goodies, and then purchase a few for family and friends. Be sure to like us on Facebook so you can see our Daily "Bakers Specials"...flavors we decide on the night before so you can be pleasantly surpised the next day!
