“One night two years ago, I couldn’t sleep”, said Young, adding, “I had just found a fun and exciting new hobby, which was baking cupcakes”. Young, while a stay-at-home mom and unemployed accountant, started baking in 2011. In this way, she found her life’s passion: CUPCAKES.
The way Young came up with the name is mystical. “The hobby had really taken hold of me, becoming an obsession. I had a realization in the middle of the night that somehow my GranMoffett’s legacy and my newly found hobby were intertwined. The name Miss Moffett’s Mystical Cupcakes kept coming into my mind. That night a company — and a dream — were born, taking shape into something much bigger than myself.”
After working from a small commercial kitchen, Young is in the process of creating a cupcakery like no other. For that she looked to crowd funding to help with the project.
The vision Young has for the future combines the tastes of time. Her cupcakes are inspired by the past, but her new space will host more than just cupcake aficionados. Young plans to offer video tutorials and webisodes about cupcakes, baking along with cooking in general.
Young realizes the importance of expanding a market and building a brand. She has partnered with David Goodman of ProFocusMedia to assist with her video outreach.
And, Young also realizes the importance of local community. Miss Moffett’s will be Olympia’s place to party. Birthday that is. Young sees a place for celebratory events for milestones both young and old.
