In this week's News 8 Eyepiece, photographer Alex

to show us how they craft their popular cupcakes..
[Working in the kitchen]
So the first step is getting all the ingredients together
And once you have them together, you add them to the
mixer, get them all mixed up.
And then you put them into the baking cups inside
the cupcake tin and put them in the oven.
It's actually just myself and my mom who are pulling
the cupcakes together.
Making them taste good and making them look good is
what we really strive to do.
When the cupcakes are being made, I make the frosting.
The cupcakes and the frosting are made fresh every
Once the cupcakes are out of the oven in the kitchen,
we take them into the decorating room, where they
cool and once they're cool we frost them and decorate
them and make them look all pretty.
I love that I get to do what I love every single day.
I don't think that a lot of people can get excited
to wake up and go to work and I get to do that.
