Hello cupcake lovers and foodies…
I’m Candi Pearson Shelton, a cupcake recipe maker and all around kitchen explorer. I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my 3 favorite men. We adore our dreamy little bungalow and our amazing neighborhood.
I tend to stay busy as a writer, musician and entrepreneur, but I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for cupcakes (I mean, who doesn’t?!). In fact, I love cupcakes so much that I thought very seriously about opening my own cupcake shop. The realities of running a bakery soon helped me understand that I didn’t want to spend my time baking; I wanted to spend my time creating. So instead of putting time and money into an industrial kitchen, I decided to keep baking at home and coming up with unique cupcake recipes. Recently I figured I should share the fruits of my exploration and let these cupcake recipes out into the world. I hope you enjoy the reading and baking the tasty cupcake recipes I share with you here on Craft Cupcakes!
There’s more than craft cupcakes.
Outside of creating craft cupcake recipes, I’m also a creative entrepreneur. In 2015 I co-founded an audio production company called Brookline Sound which allows me to be able to continue to use my skills as a voice over artist, vocalist and musician. This year, I co-founded (and we’re still building!) a company called The Industrious Creative. We’re developing an educational platform that offers resources, strategy, and coaching for creatives who want to go into business for themselves. My passion as a creative is to help fellow creatives bring their ideas to life and find long term viability in their passions. We’re doing this at The Industrious Creative through education, business coaching, and design thinking.
