DE PERE, WI -- Downtown De Pere is getting a little sweeter today as the new “Cupcake Couture” opens its doors.
Owner Michelle Axford said she started the business out of her home more than a year ago. She wanted to keep the business local, so she partnered with her parents, and Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver, James Jones and his wife Tamika to expand the yummy shop.
"My oldest daughter has a dairy allergy, so from the time she was born, I was having to come up with ways to find foods that she could have, so baking has always been a part of our life," said Axford.
The gourmet flavors are based on her grandmother’s recipes. The store also features a milk bar for kids.
