Welcome!

Cupcakes for Courage was born out of mine and my sister Kathryn’s love of baking and her courage to fight blood cancer.

Kathryn, my elder sister, was diagnosed in May of 2010 with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. During her treatment to keep our spirits lifted, we dreamed up many different cupcake flavor ideas and baked and tested the winning ones when back home.

Cupcakes and baking were an escape from the realities of battling cancer, little did we know it would become what it is today - a food truck and bakery cafe.

We are very happy to share that our story has a happy ending. Kathryn is now in remission!

They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade...we bake cupcakes, and we hope you enjoy ours and also many other items that we bake with love.
