The cupcake lady

Elvie Walsh, owner of Mimi’s Cupcakes in downtown St. Joseph, produces thousands of cupcakes each year with the help of head baker, Mary Flores, back. 

Elvie Walsh started baking with her mother as soon as she could stand up on a chair at the kitchen counter.

So it seems only natural that when she was approached six years ago by the former owners of Mimi’s Cupcakes, she would take over the business.
