Meet Michelle – Q&A with Owner of Ava’s Cupcakes
Why did you decide to open Ava’s Cupcakes?
There were many varying factors in making the decision to open Ava’s Cupcakes; however, the ultimate decision was made from the overwhelming response from the community. Orders just could not be fulfilled from home any longer because a strong and viable business had clearly been born.
What is your favorite part about owning Ava’s?
I am not sure I can say that there is one favorite part but currently, my favorite part is watching my children take an active role.
Which is your favorite cupcake at Ava’s?
I love the Salted Caramel Mocha, Banana Guava, and the Lime & Basil. How can I choose just one?!
What is your most memorable baking moment?
I’ll never forget baking for days when our episode on Cupcakes Wars aired. We pumped out 1000’s of cupcakes and cookies to the hundreds of guests lined up for hours outside our tiny kitchen in NJ.
What was it like to be on, and win, Cupcake Wars?
Cupcake Wars was a dream for us. We worked very hard to compete and winning made all the difference. It changed the trajectory of Ava’s forever and we will never forget where we started.
