Our Story

OUR BUSINESS

I started my business, Home Sweet Home “authentically homemade” Cupcakes in 2014 after many years of having been the primary baker to family and friends and being told time and again that I needed to take my goods and talents public and open a business. Home Sweet Home is an LLC operated by the mother daughter team of Elizabeth Blevins, owner, and her daughter Toomarra Thomas. Home Sweet Home is a specialty cupcake bakery retailer located in urban Detroit. I am most proud of our cupcakes. They are a rich moist delicious homemade cake in the form of a cupcake. That’s what sets us apart from other cupcake bakeries. All of our products are fresh, homemade, eye appealing and always from scratch—no shortcuts. We sell our goods primarily at farmer’s markets, and other vendor and pop-up venues.

MORE ABOUT ELIZABETH

As a youngster I watched my mother create original cake recipes. Most of the time they turned out pretty good. I grew to love baking. Not knowing otherwise, I used to use regular teacups and teaspoons and other tableware to measure the ingredients. Eventually I learned to use the proper tools while baking in my home economics class. I continued baking for friends, family and work chums. My love for baking never ceased.

Soon I decided I wanted to go professional and open a bakery. I pursued a degree in culinary arts. Shortly after graduation, a chef/ instructor recommended me for a job at a culinary vocational school. I fell in love again, this time with the idea of helping young culinary students to meet their professional goals, that love relationship lasted twenty plus years.

Upon retiring I decided to pursue the dream that never died and open my business, Home Sweet Home “Authentically Homemade” Cupcakes. I started from home and eventually got licensed through a commercial kitchen. I sell my goods at farmer’s markets and other vendor and pop-up opportunities. My cupcakes are old fashioned homemade cake in the form of a cupcake. That’s what sets my cupcakes apart from others.
