“Our cupcakes taste homemade
because they are homemade”

A trip into the home of The Cupcake Collection is an invitation into the lives of the Francois family. We do our best to welcome all our customers like guest. After all, our bakery is housed right inside the family living room. People are often surprised when I tell them that baking was never my forte. A taste of our baked from scratch, original recipe cupcakes leaves them more confused when I say that even baking out of a box was an insurmountable challenge for me prior to creating this venture. In fact, it was the passion of my daughters, Brittany and Lauren, then ages 11 and 16. Now, together with all of our children , my husband and I enjoy creating cupcakes as a family. Featured daily from my kitchen are the sweet treats we rise early to prepare with you in mind, exactly the way our family has come to love them. That's also the reason we approach them the way we do. Because I'd never dream of offering my personal guest something less than I'd offer to family, I promise to always make yours free from lard and shortening. At The Cupcake Collection, we are not trying to reinvent the wheel. We are just trying to do classic things well. Our cupcakes taste homemade because they are homemade.

Sweet Potato

My mother-in-law is the brains behind the best sweet potato pie in New Orleans. Our cupcake version is just like a pie... yet in a cake (giggle).


Often compared to warm strawberry ice cream, our strawberry icing is truly pink because it has a lot of delicious, real strawberries. It’s Strawberrylicious!

Sweet Lemonade

A perfect combination of Lemon cake with lemon icing. It’s tart enough to please any lemon lover, but sweet enough for everyone.

Red Velvet

Southern traditions become new with every bite into our velvety smooth southern style cake. This is no chocolate cake in a red disguise.

Coconut Crème

Sour cream cake with toasted coconut baked in, filled with coconut crème, finished with toasted coconut atop our signature vanilla buttercream.

Birthday Cake

Vanilla butter cake, topped with our signature vanilla buttercream icing, and tasty little confetti sprinkles. Have a "Happy Birthday"... EVERY day!


Rich chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse then topped with chocolate icing and rolled in chocolate cupcake crumbs... it’s a cupcake knockout.

Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry and lemon swirl cake topped with strawberry & lemon buttercream. Over the top... Yes.


Rich chocolate cake, chocolate icing, chocolate, chocolate, and chocolate. Did we say chocolate? Mmmmmm yum!

Wedding Cake

Almond butter cake with our signature Almond buttercream. It's the one my son swears is the only way to eat good cake.

Pineapple Upside down

Our classic vanilla cake joins with pineapple & brown sugar glaze to create a new twist on an old fashioned favorite.

Sweet Lemonade

A perfect combination of Lemon cake with lemon icing. It’s tart enough to please any lemon lover, but sweet enough for everyone.

Key Lime Coconut

Welcome spring and the breeze from the islands. Graham cracker crumbles on key lime icing is a refreshing finish to our sour cream coconut cupcake.

Carrot cake

This is no spice cake in disguise. Carrot cake boasts (gasp!) carrots, pineapple, raisins, dates, & coconut. Enjoy it with or without walnuts.


Chocolate and vanilla swirl cake topped with chocolate and cream cheese icing. This is the "I can’t make up my mind which one to get" cupcake.

Strawberry Cheesecake

Strawberry and vanilla cake combo with strawberry & cream cheese buttercream on top. Hello beautiful.
