Bella Bella Cupcakes supports the ALIVE Shelter in honor of Maya Angelou

For the month of June we created an amazing comfort cupcake in the honor of Maya Angelou that we have creatively called the "Maya Angelou". The cupcake is her own recipe for caramel cake and then we topped it with our amazing home made caramel buttercream frosting that will have you licking your fingers afterwards. For each of the Maya Angelou cupcakes that we sell we are donating the proceeds to the ALIVE shelter in Bremerton to continue to honor her name and have a good impact on the community and those in need. Bella Bella Cupcakes prides itself on being generous and helping out the community, because it is the support of those around us that keeps us going and we love to give back any way we can. The cupcake will be on our bake schedule every day that we are open for the month of June and on its first day in our shop it immediately sold out. We are expecting it to become a very popular flavor and when our customers hear that it is for a good cause they are all the more eager to try one. We are so happy to donate to the ALIVE program and help however we can.

There’s no Y without YOU!
