Jenny West, 28, from Los Angeles owns her own home-based bakery called The Sweet Cupcakery. Her business gives us the prime taste of why it can be the most fulfilling experience to support local businesses.
In 2011, West had some downtime and found herself baking a lot. In her free time, she was able to see what she was capable of. In time, she eventually founded The Sweet Cupcakery which turned into a local favorite, providing cupcakes, decorated sugar cookies, and customized cakes for any and all events. West makes everything from scratch at home, using only the freshest ingredients.
West shares that she is always looking to get more clients but that she is very happy where her business is currently. West has relied on her own self-promotion starting with her website. Along the way, cupcake tastings and word of mouth has helped The Sweet Cupcakery flourish and grow.
“I have many favorite orders that are fun to do, but I have definitely enjoyed making ‘white russian cupakes with vodka and koola'”, West shared. “With alcohol, you get to experiment with unique tastes.”
Up to date, West has had a consistent flow of orders this year, everything from elegant wedding cakes to adorable cupcakes with a certain theme for a kid’s birthday.
Currently with being an at-home mom with her baby son Logan, The Sweet Cupcakery has brought to West a great convenience and success. She is able to work from home. One day, her dream is to still open up a store or a food truck somewhere down the line. West keeps in mind that the customer is number one, not just making money.
Ears up, folks who reside in Riverside county! West’s business has been based in the Los Angeles area for the last few years, but her and her family will be relocating to the Murrieta area in September, which is close to Temecula.
