About Cutesy Cupcakes
"Too much of a good thing can
be wonderful!" -Mae West
Cutesy Cupcakes was born in 2011 when Janeen, Jeanette and Lacey (mother, daughter and granddaughter) transformed their love of sweets into a creative, family-centered business with two locations in Santa Cruz County—one in Scotts Valley and the other at the Capitola Mall.

The idea of a cupcake shop evolved when Jeanette and Lacey attend the Culinary Program at Cabrillo College under the direction of Anne Baldzikowski, and then when Lacey surprised everyone with a large, colorful cupcake tattoo on her foot, it seemed meant to be!

The business started at home with baking done in a toaster oven. Cupcake tins had to be sawed in half to fit into the tiny oven. In the next phase, they baked at a commercial oven and took internet orders. Finally in December 2012, they opened their first shop near Safeway in Scotts Valley. The Capitola store opened in the spring of 2014.

Two significant events included a road trip to Texas to pick up a cupcake truck which they use at events throughout the bay area and the other was an opportunity to participate in Food Network’s Cupcake Wars in June 2013 (aired in Sept 2013). Though they didn’t win it was a wonderful experience, once they finished crying their eyes out!

They love making delectable cupcakes and are constantly creating new flavors and decorations. The goal is for their customers to exclaim “how cute!”

About our embellishments
Everything on our cupcakes is edible. Our embellishments are hand molded at our shop and made from tinted white chocolate. Because these embellishments are not vegan, most of our vegan cupcakes do not come with an embellishment.
Cupcake Care
If you are going to serve your cupcakes the day they are purchased they can sit out at room temperature. To keep them for a couple of days, store them in the refrigerator. Longer than that, keep them in the freezer and they will be fresh as ever after allowing them several hours to thaw. For Vegan cupcakes, always store in the refrigerator since the frosting is very heat sensitive. Enjoy!

About Red House Bakery
Our gluten-free cupcakes are provided by Red House Bakery in Santa Cruz. Red House Bakery is an innovative manufacturer of gluten-free baked goods that don't taste like they're gluten-free. Based in Felton and founded in 2011 by Anna Hayes, our mission is to produce baked goods that contend with conventional products; but, made in a 100% gluten-free facility and safe for gluten-intolerants and celiacs to enjoy.

Anna worked for two years to develop the proprietary gluten-free flour blends that are the foundation of our products. Unlike most gluten-free flour blends that are dry, sandy and gritty, Anna’s blends produce cupcakes with the same mouth-feel and texture as conventional flours.

We use all natural ingredients with an emphasis on premium local suppliers like Gizdich Ranch, Clover dairy, Guittard chocolate and Giusto's California-grown flours.

We make everything at our 100% gluten-free facility at 2131 Delaware in Santa Cruz. In addition, our facility and all of our products are nut-free.
