Why does Michelle love this month’s cake so much??

As a child my mom always made me a Peaches n’ Cream Cake for my birthday. My three brothers who have Spring and Fall birthdays, always received a different cake than me (Chocolate Pudding or a Cinnamon Crumb Cake) and I never realized why until a few years ago. My mom always made me this cake because peaches are in season in August and our trees were producing the healthiest fruit right around my birthday! Ava’s now has this cake on the menu every August in honor of my mom!

We post monthly ‘Meet Michelle’ photos and quotes on a variety of topics. Each one shares a little fun tidbit about Ava’s Cupcakes’ owner, Michelle Spell.

Enjoy Ava’s Cupcakes Today!

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.

Meet Michelle – the owner of Ava’s Cupcakes and past winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. In our latest blog she discusses all things Ava’s and even talks about being on Cupcake Wars. Read on to learn a little more.

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.

NJ Opening

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.

Spell Family

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.
