Pretty Little Cupcakes, L.L.C. was founded by Monique Coleman, 32, in 2018. I’m a mom of two boys, Demari and Parker. At the time, my oldest son’s football team needed to raise money for their upcoming football championship. I decide to bake cupcakes to help fundraise and the support was so welcoming that I continued to bake. 

I’ve always had a passion for baking. Whether it was baking cookies, brownies or boxed cake mixes, I was excited to bake. My grandmother instilled this passion in me at a very young age. I can remember anytime she was in the kitchen baking, I was right there. She was known for her homemade Red Velvet Cake and Peach Cobbler.

Baking has become my therapy as it helps me cope with the loss of my baby boy, who’s initials I chose to use when naming Pretty Little Cupcakes. Losing my son, Parker, has given me the opportunity to see things from a different perspective. Each cupcake I bake, is baked out of pure love. This has taught me to truly find the beauty in life, one cupcake at a time.
