“Our cupcakes taste homemade because they are homemade” A trip into the home of The Cupcake Collection is an invitation into the lives of the Francois family. We do our best to welcome all our customers like guest. After all, our bakery is housed right inside the family living room. People are often surprised when I tell them that baking was never my forte. A taste of our baked from scratch, original recipe cupcakes leaves them more confused when I say that even baking out of a box was an insurmountable challenge for me prior to creating this venture. In fact, it was the passion of my daughters, Brittany and Lauren, then ages 11 and 16. Now, since 2008, I have enjoyed creating cupcakes together with my family locally and nationally. Featured daily from my kitchen are the sweet treats we rise early to prepare with you in mind, exactly the way our family has come to love them. That’s also the reason we approach them the way we do. Because I’d never dream of offering my personal guest something less than I’d offer to family, I promise to always make yours free from lard and shortening, and gluten or dairy if you need that too. At The Cupcake Collection, we are not trying to reinvent the wheel. We are just trying to do classic things well. Our cupcakes taste homemade because they are homemade, right in the space where I raised my family and in my hometown New Orleans.
