Local women hit sweet spot riding the cupcake craze

TIFFANY L. PARKS | Daily Reporter Published: 12/20/2013

Marie O’Stroske was working as a full time senior project manager in the Short North and doing freelance web design and web development when she decided to go full throttle with her bakery, Fate Cakes, in March.

Cupcakes are the star at Fate Cakes, a direct delivery company based out of Columbus, which also specializes in cake pops, cakes and will soon unveil a cookie line.

“Our cupcake menu has definitely put us on the map,” O’Stroske said, highlighting her red velvet, chocolate lovers and buckeye-inspired flavors as fan favorites. “We offer a variety of items including specialty cakes but people can’t get enough of the simplicity of cupcakes.”

O’Stroske, who offers delivery services six days a week to the greater Columbus area, said cupcakes make up the lion’s share — 75 percent — of products coming from her bakery.

“I think popular shows like TLC’s Cupcake Wars and other cupcake shows have really helped our industry grow into a fun and creative art which people are excited to embrace,” she said. “You can customize cupcakes and have the option of many flavors per dozen. You don’t have that much flexibility with cakes. Plus, cupcakes are cute.”

….

O’Stroske also expressed optimism about consumer demand for cupcakes.

“I can’t tell the future, that’d be an amazing superpower though, therefore, I can’t speak about if we’re living in a cupcake fad. What I can predict is Columbus will always need a specialty dessert shop and cupcakes will always be tasty,” she said.

“No matter the outcome of the supposed cupcake craze, I am willing to bet on those superpowers that Fate Cakes will continue to deliver our gourmet desserts all around Columbus. We’re not going anywhere.”

OSU Cake Giveaway – Michigan Week

Ohio State vs Michigan Cake Giveaway

Our bakery specializes in custom cake designs and other personalized desserts. When we were contacted for helping ABC 6 / FOX 28 WTTE to surprise a lucky viewer we were happy to come up with a fun OSU vs Michigan cake. Their representative found out Buckeye Block O cake online and on Facebook and thought it would be a fun dessert to feature on their Good Day Columbus Weekend show.

We had so much fun on the set of GDC with Maria Durant and Adam Slinger. It can be a little crazy behind the scenes and we were lucky enough to see the entire Beat Michigan show. Their team works so hard and it’s amazing how much on the spot changes we couldn’t imagine how crazy the their every day schedules are during the week.

The phones were ringing off the hook for our cake and Maria even brought one of our miniature cakes to a tailgate she attended before the Noon game. The two anchors enjoyed the taste of our Buckeye cupcakes while on air and teased the audience with our cake throughout the entire show from 8AM until 9:45AM when the cake was the final giveaway of the day.

We’re making custom cakes every day in the bakery and would love to surprise your guests at your next party or special event. Give us a call (614) 219.9429 to talk to one of our cake designers today. To view our cake menu Click Here or Check Out Our Cake Pricing Here.
