GILBERT, Ariz. -- Half cupcake, half work of art, Mia Bella Cupcakes has added great taste and style to numerous events in around the Valley since opening in July 2011.

Specializing in cupcake bouquets -- which looks like gorgeous flowers -- owner Yolanda Michelle has provided one-of-a-kind cupcake creations so unique that customers are often reluctant to enjoy their primary purpose as a treat.

A successful fight against breast cancer led her to focus on doing what she enjoyed most - art and baking.

"I love the creative process that comes with baking and challenging myself to design something no one has ever seen before," Michelle said. "To add that unique element to someone's wedding to make it even more memorable is an opportunity I'm very thankful for."

Mia Bella Cupcakes will soon offer baking and cupcake decorating classes to kids and adults.

Whether you are a beginner or simply want to hone your cupcake decorating skills then this class is great place to start. Each class is tailored for the current season or theme so there will always be something new to create.
