Business Name: Callie K Cupcakes Website: www.calliekcupcakes.com Established: 2019
Can you please fully explain your business or product line?
Callie K Cupcakes makes delicious and decadent cupcakes, cakes and more. We also are a nut-free facility and offer many allergy-friendly options too.
With the local maker community continuing to grow, what makes you stand out from the rest?
We are unique in the fact that we offer not only delicious items, but items to fit many dietary needs.
What made you realize that you had a product that could be shared with others?
I am lactose intolerant and couldn’t find any treats readily available, so I started making my own and in doing so realized many people liked them and also may have dietary needs limiting them to finding yummy goodies out there.
What has been your biggest success as a maker? Biggest struggle you’ve overcome?
The feedback from my customers has been amazing. They love what we make and we have a loyal following forming and many returning customers.
Work – life balance is definitely the biggest struggle.
Any advice that you would tell someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
Do what you love and what makes you feel good if you can.
Please share any upcoming events (physical events, virtual sales, etc.) that you think Winnipeggers would be interested in!
We accept online orders and are at the St. Norbert Farmer’s Market on Saturdays.
