The Cupcake Store: New takes on cupcakes

Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (CBS 8) - Build a better cupcake and Santee will beat a path to your door. That's the secret to the success of the shop on Carlton Oaks Boulevard that hasn't even officially opened its doors. Yet, Yvette Nolta and her mother Anne Montgomery are the innovators of The Cupcake Store, where almost anything goes.

"You can throw chocolate-covered bacon on a cupcake," Yvette said. "We call this the Mancake, we serve it every Monday. It's a devil's food cake with maple frosting, bacon bits and chocolate-covered bacon."

Among their eight daily favored flavors, there are some traditional family recipes.

"That's actually our signature cupcake. It's a German chocolate fusion. It has coconut-pecan frosting baked inside the cake, so it makes it extremely moist and has a cooked frosting on the top. That is my mom's secret," Yvette said.

Or perhaps you'll choose Death by Peanut Butter.

"That's chocolate peanut butter with a marshmallow frosting and chocolate peanut butter cups on top," Yvette said.

This dynamic mother-daughter duo has put a new twist on a classic red velvet.

"We cook raspberry in the center and it's raspberry frosting with puree in it with raspberry on top," Yvette said.

The Cupcake Store even bakes sugar-free and gluten-free. They're gearing up for their official grand opening this Saturday with a limited-time addition, a brand new offering.

"This is the Himmel right here, it has a graham cracker crust with a chocolate cake. It's dipped in a chocolate ganache, then it's rolled in graham crackers and it's a marshmallow frosting," Yvette said.

Sharing family faves and tweaking the treats the people crave has folks flocking to The Cupcake Store before it even opens.
