Hi, I am Julie McRae, owner of Cupcakes! by Julie. I specialize in custom, gourmet wedding cakes and cupcakes for your special occasion. My journey creating cupcakes began in 2009 and has blossomed into creating custom cakes for weddings, birthday and special events. I have always loved being artistic and becoming a wedding cake designer/decorator has provided the perfect outlet for my creativity. I take great pride in offering cakes and cupakes that not only look amazing, but taste great too!
In 2008, my husband was recalled by the Army to serve in Iraq, I felt honored to have a spouse who was willing to serve his country and I was also scared to death. I was filled with every emotion you could imagine and decided I needed something productive to keep my mind from always thinking the worst. I stopped watching the news and starting baking cupcakes, cookies, and all things sweet! Little did I know that baking cupcakes would unfold into a something so much bigger!
As difficult as it was to be a single mother for that year, I am grateful for the time I had to develop a skill and talent for baking. With each order placed, I had the opportunity to learn about the industry, gain confidence in my trade and promote my brand.
Aside from being the owner, creator and decorator of Cupcakes! by Julie, I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. I owe a special thanks to all who believed in Cupcakes! by Julie, they are the reason for my success.
When I am not in the cakery, you will find me spending time with my handsome husband and three amazing kids! Because “Taking time for each other is the key to harmony in the home!” - Dieter F. Uchtdorf
