I always love it when I come across a story of a bakery that started with passion, overcame all the hurdles of getting a business off the ground, and has made it to the other side as a success.
Prohibition Bakery is a great example of what can be possible when you focus on what you love and have the determination to succeed.
Brooke and Leslie are two friends that had the brilliant idea to combine their passions for baking and bartending into New York’s original alcoholic cupcake company. Their mini boozy cupcakes took the baking world by storm.
Meet the personalities that helped make this bakery successful:
They started off doing catering from their homes initially. When they made the leap to a brick and mortar location in 2012 and the construction took longer than expected, the girls turned to Kickstarter determined to get their dream off the ground.
They asked for $8,800 and a mere 25 days later when the campaign ended, they had raised more than they asked for – coming in at $12,010!
We know that drink flavored cupcakes are fun, but their awesome flavors like Sangria, Old Fashioned, Dark & Story, Birthday Cake, Nuts & Berries (virgin), L’Italiano, Pretzels & Beer, White Russian, Car Bomb, For the Love of Bacon, and so many more are simply amazing!
