Our motto is "Fresh Baked" and from scratch. There's no such thing as skinny cupcakes and there's no such thing as baking from packet mix. We believe in tasty, fluffy, indulgent and gorgeous looking cupcakes because it makes people happy. There's an amazing feeling that comes with being able to bring a box of cupcakes to a party and letting them know that you baked them yourself - that's what got our Founder, Sheryl, hooked onto baking in the first place. Now we want to share that experience with you!
**Exciting News!** Founder of Cupcake Central, Sheryl Thai, will be making a special appearance running these Masterclasses in months May & June 2017.

Hatching That Dream
Cupcake Central is a Melbourne-based company that currently has three stores: Hawthorn, Melbourne Central, and Highpoint. We are the only cupcake bakery that honestly bakes fresh every morning at 4:00 a.m. -- and from scratch using real ingredients (no packet mix, shortening, or nasty preservatives).
An obsession that started on a trip almost nine years ago has grown into years of baking and perfecting the good old cupcake. Losing her job during the GFC in 2009 made Sheryl realise even more that she wanted to follow her dream of opening up a cupcake bakery.
Since hatching that dream, Sheryl has absolutely loved to share what she knows with anyone that loves cupcakes. She hopes to continue teaching everyone how easy it is to bake cupcakes - from scratch - starting with Cupcake Central's very own "Hatch That Dream Cookbook", now available at our website, www.cupcakecentral.com.au
With a team of bakers, we'll be teaching you all the pro tips and tricks so that you cake also Bake like a Boss at home.
