Wednesday's Woman: Carrie Middlemiss: Bella Cupcake Couture: How Sweet Life Is!

I had the pleasure of recently meeting Carrie Middlemiss at a CRAVE business chat and was INSTANTLY drawn to her beautiful aura! She is enthusiastic, energetic, and clearly, one creative business woman! I hope you enjoy Carrie's fabulous story below and the YUMMY pix of her products!

From Pink Slip to Pink Frosting:
Bella Cupcake Couture was created by Carrie Middlemiss after being laid off as an 18-year employee of a bank which collapsed as a result of the economic downturn. Carrie had always wanted to contribute and be a part of the cupcake community and saw this as the perfect opportunity to follow her passion.

After a year of research and talking to cupcake lovers and shop owners, she decided upon the idea of starting a company that sells custom decorative textile-inspired cupcake wrappers to hide the crinkly, translucent paper they're baked in.

Carrie wanted something fashionable for the bottom portion of her cupcakes and always said "Why should the frosting have all the limelight?"

Now, Bella Cupcake Couture offers posh and chic textile-inspired cupcake wrappers. The boutique-style designs add a touch of sophistication and elegance for any special occasion. Carrie envisions the wrappers, which are printed with soy inks on recycled paper, at weddings, bridal and baby showers and as birthday gifts, housewarming gifts and a little treat for yourself.

Our hope is that our Bella Cupcake Couture wrappers bring smiles to the ones you care about and create cherished memories w
ith your friends and family. We want our customers to enjoy the simple pleasures and savor the sweet life.

When I asked Carrie to tell me the 5 things that make her happiest in life, her was her reply:
  1. Spending time relaxing with my husband and our dog Baxter.
  2. Creating special moments through food and celebrations with friends and family.
  3. Thinking outside the box and developing something unique.
  4. I love to joke around and make people smile/laugh.
  5. I enjoy random acts of kindness.

Thanks for being an inspiration Carrie! How sweet life is with people like you to inspire us!
