Baker Spotlight: Amy of Pretty Please Cupcake

Amy owns Pretty Please Cupcake, a mini cupcake delivery service bringing sweet goodness right to your door in the DC area. They are committed to being eco-friendly and using local products as much as possible. They sell at the UDC Farmers Market every Saturday from 7:30am-1:30pm. 

Tell us about yourself

Mad scientist/marketer turned baker:
I moved to DC about 3 years ago with high hopes of entering the corporate world and later found that I am not destined to be a 9-5er with a desk job.  Thus came the idea for Pretty Please Cupcake.  DC has a ton of cupcake places, but no minis that I had seen.  Plus, what could be better than getting them delivered to your door step?  Now, how about top it off with local and organic ingredients

What is your favorite type of cupcake?

Anything with peanut butter! [At Pretty Please Cupcake] our biggest sellers are chocolate and vanilla- who knew?  But I like to spice it up with one flavor a week.  The banana mini topped with honey cinnamon frosting and walnuts was a hit, and another favorite of mine is the raspberry cake topped with chocolate raspberry frosting

If you had to describe yourself as a cupcake, how would you?

Just your average cupcake from the outside, but filled with delicious goodness inside, like my lemonade cupcakes filled with lemon curd!  Always full of surprises, and hey- when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade!

What cupcakes do you plan to bring to CupcakeCampDC?

Chocolate mini cupcakes with mint buttercream frosting, banana mini cupcakes with honey cinnamon buttercream frosting, and coconut mini cupcakes with coconut buttercream frosting and coconut shreds.

"Baker Spotlight" is an online featurette of bakers or bakeries that are participating in CupcakeCampDC.
