Missy’s Cupcakes, Cookies, and More

Missy’s cupcakes, cookies, and more is a baking business based in Stanford and run by Missy Gaither out of her home. Missy started this business about 10 years ago because of her love of baking. As an entrepreneur she has turned her passion into a business and one of her favorite parts is being her own boss. Not only this but she loves meeting new people through her work. Missy wants to “grow [her] business and someday have a storefront.”

Her store offers a variety of baked goods such as cupcakes, cakes, and cookies. Missy’s specialty is baking and decorating cookies. Pricing ranges from $20-$60 depending on the order. Missy does pop up shops, where you can get pre-made baked goods on a first come first serve basis on her Facebook group, or you can message her to get a specialized order.

Missy’s cupcakes, cookies, and more is the perfect place to go when ordering baked goods for an event. From my own personal experience when my family ordered from Missy to make cookies for a baby shower, Missy not only makes delicious cookies, but she also offers fair pricing and gets the order done quickly and efficiently. She was easy to work with and was willing to work with us to get exactly what we wanted for the shower.

One of the things Missy wants people who haven’t had the opportunity to work with her to know is that she is a home-based business. There isn’t a team of people that work for her, she is the one who takes the orders and makes them, making sure each order is specialized for the customer. If you want to view Missy’s work you can go to her Facebook group Missy’s cupcakes, cookies, and more. If you wish to place an order you can Facebook message her through her personal profile, Missy Gaither.
