Cupcake Baker Interview: Rose Bakes
We have a great cupcake baker interview to share with you today. Here name is Rose of Rose Bakes. She has a fun story of how she got her start, her very fun decorating style and more. We hope you enjoy!
Tell us a little bit about your bakery and how you got your start?
I have had a love for baking for as long as I can remember. At the age of 13, I asked for a cake decorating kit for Christmas and from then on, I did cakes for family. However, it wasn’t until 2010 when my brother asked me to do his wedding cake that my business really took off! I initially refused – having never done a wedding cake I was terrified. But after lots of begging (and warning him!), I agreed. After posting those pictures on Facebook…. my orders started rolling in and multiplying and I never looked back!
What was your first childhood memory involving cupcakes?
I honestly can’t drum up a single childhood memory regarding cupcakes! My Mama was not ever a baker and I don’t ever remember eating cupcakes! However, I do remember the first cake I ever baked and decorated after getting my decorating kit. Looking back on it now, it was pitiful, but I knew from that day on that I wanted to bake cakes for people!
What is your top 3 best selling cupcakes?
My most popular sellers for decorations would have to be my crawfish cupcakes and my farm animal cupcakes. My most popular flavors would be Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cupcakes or Italian Cream Cheese Cupcakes. Oops… that’s four!
What is your favorite cupcake flavor?
My favorite is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes!! It’s the best of both worlds with cookie dough and frosting!
Is there an innovation you’d like to see made to the cupcake that would improve it for you?
I’m not sure if this is an improvement on a cupcake so much as an improvement on a way to package them! I have tried so many different types of boxes/inserts and I’ve yet to find any that I just love! OH – and a way to safely ship them… that would be a dream invention!!
What’s the most memorable cupcake event you’ve done?
That would have to be my first cake/cupcake wedding tower display. I was skeptical that a cupcake display could be as appealing as a wedding cake, but after getting it all finished and set up, I was in love with the look and I often try to “sell” that look to customers these days!
Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design?
I guess it’s because I’m sort of a sucker for anything pink, I love your pink striped cupcake wrappers (they remind me of my site design) and the Lu-Lu Pink and Black ones!!
Anything else you’d like to add?
When I first started my business, I was all about cake, cake, cake. Then last year I was interviewed for a local magazine and they wanted to talk cupcakes. I did some Easter designs for their article and I really started to rethink cupcakes and decided to make the an important part of my business as well. As cupcakes have become more and more popular, I’ve really grown to love a great cupcake design and display! They’re so much fun and there are so many possibilities out there!
