Sunday, October 18, 2020 is National Chocolate Cupcake Day 2020.

Does Publix allow you to buy individual cupcakes?

Misha Kuryla-Gomez experienced in 2005 what a host of new mothers may encounter: the dichotomy of wanting to work while also desiring to be at home with their baby, experiencing all the joys of motherhood. That year, at the nexus of two experiences -- hearing a National Public Radio segment about the cupcake trend heating up in U.S. cities and the well-received donation of her cupcakes to a cancer charity (baked from her mother’s beloved recipe) -- Kuryla-Gomez laid her fingers on a solution: She would put her mother’s recipe to use, baking and selling her fun creations to local businesses. Her success exceeds even her loftiest expectations. After seven years, Kuryla-Gomez now owns and operates four Misha’s Cupcakes retail stores in Miami and wholesales to 35 area buyers, including supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and convenience stores. In a jovial conversation, stuffed with the gaiety befitting her product, Kuryla-Gomez shared with eHow the lessons of launching an American dream.

Starting a Cupcake Business

eHow: Why cupcakes?

M.K-G.: I guess on a global scale they’re enticing because they’re small and they allow you to have a sampling of a lot of different flavors that you might want to try, and you couldn’t with a big slice of cake. Ours are a little bigger than bite-size. They’re just fun. They remind you of being a kid.

eHow: What is the first step to starting a cupcake business?

M.K-G.: I did not create a business plan. I went to business school and all of that stuff, and I know you’re supposed to, but for me it didn’t really make any sense.

When I started, the whole point was to generate some income, and I had this recipe of my mom’s and it was delicious. So it was easy from that aspect: to start with what I knew. And then I figured, “Well, you have to have some variety. Some people don’t like chocolate.” So I did pretty much the same as my mom’s chocolate recipe but in vanilla.

But I think for someone just starting out, yeah, you have to have something that is good because people will try it, as your friends … but if it’s not good they're not going to come back and buy it. You have to have something that is good, something that sets it apart from somebody else’s cupcake or cake or whatever else it’ll be.
