“Making beautiful taste delicious” – it’s not just my motto, it’s my passion. My name is Krista Hund Butcher and I own Krista’s Kupcakery & Kakes. We mix the best, freshest ingredients with oodles of imagination to create the perfect individualized sweet treats for birthdays, weddings, family & corporate events.
The best parts about me are my kids, Samantha and Gabe, and my wonderful husband Chris. I’m an Interior Designer turned kake and kupcake baker – A Florida girl, born on the East coast. I spent 5 years in Tallahassee, attending Florida State University where I earned my bachelors in Art and Science in the school of Interior Design. After college, I moved to Naples, where I worked as an Interior Designer for seven years. I currently reside in Ft. Myers.
Now that I have a family, it’s time to slow down a little, focus on my kids and my passions. I love baking. I love creating. And I love that my family has encouraged me to combine the two!
I am now part of the Cottage Food Industry and proud to have been the first to apply for the license in Lee County. The Cottage Food Law became effective July 1st, 2011. This allowed individuals to manufacture, sell and store certain types of food products in an unlicensed home kitchen. What a blessing for bakers, like myself, and other foodie entrepreneurs!
My kupcakes and kakes are an extension of me and my keen eye gained from years of being an interior designer. It has given me the ability to really hone in on my clients visions they have bouncing around in their mind. There’s no greater pleasure then bringing that vision to life.
I’ve even created my own themed kupcakes, inspired by my children. They’ve become my standard flavor offerings – “The Queen of Hearts”, “Willy’s Wonky”, “The Eloise Kupcake”, “The Charlie’s Brown Kupcake”, “The Wicked Witch”, “Fairy Godmother”, “The Pinkalicious Kupcake”, “Prince Charming ”, “The George’s Curious Kupcake”, “White Rabbit”, “Nancy’s Fancy”, “Silly Ole Bear”, “The Velveteen Rabbit”, “The Rabbit’s Harvest”, and “The Weasley’s Kitchen Kupcake”. All our kupcakes and kakes are made to order, so I can customize them with whatever decoration and flavors my client’s desire.
I offer local delivery, as well, to help make the client’s surprise, event, and/or gift that much more special. There aren’t many people that can say they’re passionate for their work… that they’re living their dream. I’m of the fortunate few. And I’d love to help you make beautiful taste delicious.
