A Brief Yummy Cupcakes History . . .
In January of 2004, Tiffini came to her Husband, Nik, and her Mom, Brogan, with an idea of creating a cupcake only bakery! Then, there was no such thing as a cupcake only bakery and the idea sounded a little wild. But all agreed that while it was common to find gourmet cakes…in many flavors and designs…why not cupcakes?
We loved the idea and wanted it enough to figure out a way to make it happen. Tiffini went to work in the kitchen creating cupcake flavor combinations and the taste testing began. We had cupcakes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and every opportunity in between…looking for the winners. Turned out, whenever a flavor combination was exceptionally delicious, our then 2 year old Logan (Tiffini and Nik’s son) would ask for another one of those “yummy cupcakes”. We officially became Yummy Cupcakes in March of 2004 and started out creating cupcakes for special events. We saved the money we earned, used every credit card we had (!), did all our own work…painted, laid tile, created signs, signed contracts…and opened our first location in Burbank CA in 2005. We were scared to death we would open and no one would come. While Oprah didn’t know about us yet, Daily Candy did and thanks to their email blast, we opened to lines out the door and down the block.
With a founding motto of "creating RAVING fans", Yummy Cupcakes has thankfully grown and earned a reputation of doing just that...creating raving fans!
Chef Tiffini kept her creativity chef's hat on and soon added to the line of cupcake treats by creating...
Cupcake in a Jar
Cupcake Truffles & Truffle Pops
Cupcake on a Stick
Cupcake Push Pops
Cupcake Mini Bites
Frosting Bon Bons
and now the newest introduction...Cupcake Stuffies!
With a lot of hard work and every dollar we had, we franchised this concept and now we are helping to create jobs around the world, build dreams of self employment for others and bring our one-of-a-kind taste to areas around the world!
