about this story

Buttercream Bs Bakery, the crown jewel of our small town. It has been a fixture in Richfield, VA for generations...and now... I own it. Baking is in my family's blood. My family opened Buttercream Bs in 1957. My great grand parents always had a passion for baking and cupcakes were their specialty. What started as an in home operation blossomed into one of the most popular bakeries in Virginia. Buttercream Bs has won VAs annual bake off 35 years in a row. Our cupcakes became so popular and our operation grew so big, it took over the old housing supply store and warehouse. The expansion was the best decision my grandparents and more recently my parents managed. The grand opening of the new look Buttercream Bs was the biggest party in town. It lasted all weekend and was quite the site. Pink was always my family's favorite color so each and every decoration was pink. We even named our family cat Pink panther.

I am the new owner and must keep the family tradition alive. I am taking over just in time for Richfield's annual bakeoff. Each year the state's best bakers descend upon Richfield and compete in different baking categories. I plan on keeping my family's tradition alive and winning this year's cupcake bake off with my family's most precious recipe: razzle dazzle rasberry.
