So Many Sweet Ideas to Celebrate your Graduate!
At Ava’s we offer so much more than just cupcakes, we are truly your dessert one-stop-shop. This is especially true for major celebrations and holidays, such as, graduations. We know this is an important time not only for the graduate but their loved ones as well since it’s a major accomplishment! Our staff places all the love and care into every graduation order as if it were our very own graduate we were celebrating.
Below are some popular graduation desserts. Each is customizable for colors to match your graduate’s school colors.
Obviously, cupcakes are often a must in our shop for so many occasions! Therefore, we often get custom orders for cupcakes.
Some ideas on what to do for graduation cupcakes are:
- Cupcakes in graduate’s school colors
- Adding a graduate flag into cupcakes (you can purchase these online or in-store)
- Graduation cap on top of cupcake (we can do this and even put different colored tassels)
Below is a quick photo gallery of some graduation cupcake options.
Our namesake might be all about cupcakes, but we also make and sell custom sugar cookies. These are perfect for any graduation party. The graduation cap picture below shows the perfect graduation cookie for your graduate. Like our cupcakes, we can customize these tassels with different colors too.
Next, a traditional cake is always a great option for any party or celebration. We can create any custom cake you desire for a graduation party. Pictured below is one for Ava’s Cupcake’s owner’s son Isaiah!
Can’t decide between the three amazing desserts listed above? Never fear, that is what dessert bars are for! A dessert bar incorporates numerous types of desserts and provides a wonderful, sweet mix for party guests. Everyone loves that there is something for all tastes on a dessert bar.

Like most of us, you likely love baked treats. Who doesn’t love cupcakes, cookies, and other sweet treats?! But, have you ever thought, what is it like to own an NC bakery? Now that you are curious, we have those answers for you. Michelle Spell, owner of Ava’s Cupcakes, shares a little bit about what it is like to own Ava’s Cupcakes and their upcoming plans. Read on to learn more about this wonderful local business, with locations in Winston-Salem and Clemmons.
What sets you apart from other bakeries in North Carolina?
“I believe it is our approach to what we do. While we use the finest ingredients and are proud of our scratch made menu, we truly do place our priorities on people first, product second, and we let the profit handle itself.”
Now that you just celebrated your 11th anniversary, what lessons do you feel were the most important you owned while owning a bakery?
“The most important lessons I have learned are those that taught, and continue to teach, me how to be a better leader and a better person each day. From learning to slow down to simply listening more intently, I’ve learned a lot over the years. My only hope is that I don’t have to repeat any of the hard lessons!”
Do you have any fun or funny bakery stories you can share?
“There are quite a few. One that we always laugh about was when we first opened our New Jersey store. We were working around the clock, with lines out the door. I needed to rest so I went into a closet and using a roll of paper towels as a pillow, I slept like a baby. When I woke up, I went right back to the kitchen! To this day, we laugh about how we all took turns sleeping in the closet during that frenzy!”
What is next for Ava’s Cupcakes?
“Ava’s Cupcakes has had so many amazing opportunities over the years. But recently, with the pandemic, even more opportunities have come our way. This includes a chance to reach homes all over America with our latest and greatest product, Ava’s Cakecup! It’s everything our famous cupcakes are and more! Ava’s Cakecups are shippable, resealable cakes in a cup, and they are going to take the dessert and edible gift world by storm!”

As a business owner it’s important to get some downtime, so what are some of your favorite NC destinations?
“Asheville, I love the Biltmore! I love Charlotte too. But truly, Winston-Salem has so much to offer that we don’t stray very far from home!”

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.
