A cup of food allergies, a dash of frustration and a handful of passion; add those ingredients to the mix and you get Cool Cat Cupcakes.
Over the past few years my family has loved heading over to Olde Towne Butcher on William Street to pick up some Cool Cat Cupcakes for an afternoon or evening treat. Our favorite by far is the Chocolate Vanilla Crème Filled cupcake that is over the top decadent! And these cupcakes aren’t just delicious – they are nut free, dairy free and egg free. Mmmmmmm!!!!
Often while eating them I have wondered, who the magic baker is behind the fun “cat” logo on the box of cupcakes and what their story is.
Why Cool Cat Cupcakes?
Having two kids with food allergies propelled Jasmin Wisniewski’s passion to find baked goods that were allergen free for her kids to enjoy at parties, at school and at home. After trying various store bought mixes, she started experimenting and began to create allergy free baked goods that her kids loved.
Never having dreamed of becoming a baker, this mom’s success has come from hard work and dedication to her children and others with food allergies. Although she does not have a professional background in baking, she did grow up with a pastry chef for a mom.
After spending time perfecting her recipes, she launched Cool Cat Cupcakes five years ago as a home-based business and hasn’t looked back.
Jasmin has felt the strong support and sense of community for local businesses in the Fredericksburg area. In the future she hopes to expand her business into a commercial kitchen where she can provide more allergy free treats to those who need them and to those who just want a delicious cupcake.
Cool Cat Cupcakes offers many different varieties of cupcakes, of which the most popular flavors are:
- Pumpkin Spice
- Chocolate Espresso
- Strawberry Vanilla Bean
- Chocolate Vanilla Crème Filled
