@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  What is the back story to opening Smallcakes?

Smallcakes: “Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery is one of the most talked about companies in the world today. And that’s just the way we like it! Started back in 2008 selling the best cupcakes in the world, and now we have over 200 stores worldwide. Jeff Martin founded the wildly popular Smallcakes Cupcakery that bakes and frosts around 18 signature flavors every morning, fresh from scratch. Smallcakes features seasonal and special flavors created by Jeff. After appearances on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” seasons one, two, and seven as well as on the hit daytime talk show “The View,” Smallcakes became well known and in hot demand in neighborhoods across the nation. Even celebrities have had Smallcakes at their events and weddings. USA TODAY listed Smallcakes as one of the Top Ten Cupcake Places to try in the country. Our mission statement is how we have grown our little cupcake store. “To use creative flavors, quality ingredients, and friendly service to provide the finest cupcake experience worthy of returning and recommending.”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite cupcake? 

Smallcakes: “My Favorite Cupcakes is the Birthday Cake… for some reason I recommend eating it with a fork.”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  What is your favorite part of owning Smallcakes?
