Taste Love Cupcakes is the vision of two close friends, Michelle Wilson Brown and Yolanda Baston. They have been friends since they were college students at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Over the years, life and work took them around the country, and the world, but their friendship kept them connected. In 2008 they found themselves back together at home, in Detroit, Michigan – each wanting a little bit more out of life. Their passion for fine foods and delicious cupcakes led them to create a partnership, and Taste Love Cupcakes was born. Prior to opening in April of 2011, family and friends had the pleasure of enjoying the fabulous cupcakes on a regular basis. It became clear that the two had something special, which led them to open their very first retail location in Royal Oak, Michigan.  In late February of 2017, Michelle and Yolanda were offered a great opportunity, and decided to relocate Taste Love Cupcakes to Bloomfield Township, Michigan.

At Taste Love Cupcakes we bake each of our gourmet cupcakes in small batches from scratch every day. Quality is our first priority, so we use only premium ingredients like unbleached/unbromated flour, Nielsen Massey vanilla beans, real fruits, and fresh dairy and eggs – no artificial flavors, no mixes, no shortcuts! Whenever possible we buy local and organic.

Michelle and Yolanda take pride in each and every cupcake as evidenced by the signature Taste Love red velvet heart that adorns every cupcake.  We promise, you will taste the love in every bite.
