Mainely Cupcakes, LLC is a North Carolina Department of Agriculture approved online family owned and operated home-based bakery with a state inspected kitchen.  No! we are not from Maine! I started my business in February of 2012 after an unexpected family tragedy.  It was only possible with the very much appreciated support and enthusiasm from family and friends.  I wanted to do something to honor the memory of my brother, Edward “Maine” Lee Turner, Jr. Inspired by a reality television show, I left my corporate job, became a stay home mom, and Mainely Cupcakes was born. His childhood favorite dessert was a chocolate cupcake with a vanilla filling and I always enjoy making them.    We love being able to bring gourmet cupcakes and cakes to any event whether it’s a baby shower, wedding, birthday party, anniversary or “just because”. We take great pride in our baked goods. You can taste the love that goes into every treat. Our mission is to satisfy every customer with a tasteful delight in every bite!


Through one-to-one consultations, you and Cassandra can discuss dessert ideas and how you picture your delectable treats. A creative individual by nature, this baker can custom design your cakes to flawlessly portray your relationship and keen interests. From illustrations to decorative writing, Cassandra’s imaginative being knows no boundaries. Your desserts can feature bold and fine flavors including fresh fruits, buttercream, vanilla, chocolate, pumpkin spice, coconut, and more. All of your personalized treats can be delivered and set up at your chosen venue in a variety of ways for further convenience. Additional desserts and treats available.


Our mission is to satisfy every customer! Our inspiration, passion, and enthusiasm to create the perfect product only matches the love we have for baking.


Owner of Mainely Cupcakes

Baking cakes for my family has always been a fun hobby for me; however, after becoming a stay at home mom I naturally gravitated more towards the kitchen experimenting.  Inspired by the reality television show “Georgetown Cupcakes”, I immediately redirected my attention from cakes to cupcakes because they were easy to manage and less messy when it comes to cleaning. So cupcakes quickly became my passion; and I’ve been baking Mainely Cupcakes ever since.


Thank you for letting us be your custom cake vendor. We take pride in providing you with the best experience possible.
We take your vision and bring it to reality. Thank you all so much for trusting us!!


Our cupcakes and cakes are never mass-produced, each batch is made to order, always something new, and there's a tasteful delight in every bite!
