The "Big D" Cupcake Company

 

 


About the owner, Anna Coulter

Ever since I was a little girl I loved to cook and bake.  I grew up watching and learning to cook from my grandma and mom.  I later worked my way through college waiting tables in fine dining restaurants and catering companies.  I loved all things sweet, so I would order desserts every night after my shifts (and sometimes even for breakfast)!   I analyzed their flavors, textures, and presentations. I was great at selling them to guests because I was so passionate in describing each one, remembering back on all my sampling experiences! 

After graduating I taught for 15 wonderful years and loved every minute of it.  During this time I became addicted to the Food Network, watching all of the cooking shows, cake challenges, Cupcake Wars, etc.  I tried out many of the recipes and techniques I learned on my family, friends,church bake sales, and school potlucks. 

I then earned my master's degree in Education Administration, but felt that I had fulfilled my education and teaching dreams.  I was now ready to pursue another dream.  I decided to start developing my recipes, took classes, and let the creative juices flow!   

Two years ago I started “The Big D Cup Cake Company”, and found that I was at my happiest when baking and decorating sweets in the kitchen.  I was bringing in samples of recipes for co-workers to get their feedback, and received rave reviews and confirmations that I needed to go into business full time.  So I took the leap of faith and never looked back.  I pour the passion I have for baking and decorating into every sweet treat I make.  I hope you love them as much I love baking them!
