 BittyCakes Cupcakery is a mother/daughter operated home bakery business, based in the beautiful little town of South Haven, Michigan. With a combined 45+ years of baking experience, we opened our homes to share our kitchen creativity with our community! We started small, making a different cupcake flavor every week and baking just one day a week. We posted our creations on social media, hoping to catch eyes and make fans.  

Maria and Malissa, the dynamic duo!

The response we have had over this past year has been overwhelming and our hearts are so full from all of the support we've had! We have a fantastic following of the friendliest customers around. To thank them, we offer quality baked goods and sweet treats at prices that everyone can afford! We do this through special orders, vendor events, and continued weekly specials. Malissa is our cupcake creator! She enjoys creating new flavor combinations and works hard to make each cupcake LOOK just as good as they taste.

Aside from cupcakes and cakes, we both have a love for all things baked and sweet. From cake pops to chocolate covered Oreo's, Madelines to french macarons....we specialize in sweet!!

BittyCakes has been operating for one year now and we are thrilled to already have an opportunity to open a store front and expand our business. We can't wait to be able to offer BittyCakes cupcakes and sweet treats nearly EVERY. DAY. We regularly receive messages from customers, asking for cupcakes same day. Opening our doors will allow for grab and go cupcakes to be available most days of the week! But....we can't do it on our own.  We need a little help to make our dream, become a reality. By contributing to our campaign, you will be helping us purchase the equipment we need to create our mini masterpieces! We need it all, from ovens to mixers, and every penny received will go directly towards obtaining those must have items. Helping us is also helping support a veteran/woman owned and operated small business!!

We fully intend to pay your generosity forward! We live in and love South Haven, and BittyCakes has happily taken every opportunity to give back to our community! We will continue to do that and more, once our doors have opened!

We appreciate that you have taken the time to read this and hope that even if you can't offer a donation, you will share our story and help us reach our goal of sprinkling some sugar on South Haven! 

Risks and challenges

We are a family owned and operated business that works very hard to please every customer. We realize that opening a bakery is always a risk and that to succeed, we must be dedicated and diligent. We are thankful to live in a community that actively supports small businesses, and to live in a town that sees much seasonal tourism. We hope that by offering the very best product available, at the most reasonable prices possible, we will be able to grow and thrive year round.
