Cupcakes have gained popularity in recent years proving that the “cupcakery” trend is here to stay. Thanks to two local moms, Santa Clarita can now sink its teeth into this sweet craze.
Kim Thurman and her partner, Kim Aeck, got a life-changing call from the Food Network asking if they would like to compete on season two of their hit show, Cupcake Wars. Without hesitation, the two jumped at the opportunity.
They gained national attention when Cupcake Wars announced the two as the winner of the LA Auto Show episode in late January.
A few days after their episode aired, they challenged themselves again and opened up their first store front.
“Everything was so new, so the challenge was trying to understand what it really took,” Thurman says.
Despite the challenge, the two have managed to create an enjoyable work environment for their employees, allowing them to laugh and have a great time, as well share the fun with customers.
