Aloha kakou (aloha to all)
The owners Mark and Susan have always had a passion for fun, food, family and creativity. They are also always looking for a way to give back.
They have been looking for something to combine these concepts and create something new and fresh.
When their daughter Megan received a cupcake maker from the Easter bunny at age 9, it was clear the connection with her older brothers as they raved about how nice they looked and how good they tasted. Susan saw the pride in Megan’s eyes and this is when Susan said “aha this is it”. Mark agreed this had enormous potential.
After raising three boys and seeing how baking and baking items were all geared towards girls, we knew that this experience would be for all children, no matter their sex. How many famous chefs and bakers are men? Many!
Living in Hawaii for a year helped us realize the Hawaiian islands are magical, and if we can bring a bit of that magic to the mainland, combined with a baking concept that is both girl and boy friendly, we have done our job.
5 years later, we are ready to launch this concept.
The color scheme was created to entice everyone. The colors of the ocean and sunsets are what we are about. We want to be Inviting to all, no matter the age (inclusion not exclusion). Cupcake makers will be white, not pink. Each experience and smile will reaffirm our mission is spreading.
Happily we opened the doors for our first store June 2015.
Ohana across the continent. Aloha and Mahalo.
