My neighbor, Enza, and her sister-in-law, Madeline, saw a need in our area for delicious baked goods that fit into the special diets of themselves and their children. Enza has a son with multiple food allergies, a daughter who is allergic to gluten, and she suffers from celiac disease. She is an amazing cook and baker and developed a variety of her own recipes and methods for creating baked goods that were safe for her family to eat while still tasting delicious. Madeline has been an avid baker and skilled cake decorator for years. Their bakery, Maddy’s Fatty’s, offers a variety of baked goods that are all organic and natural, as well as items that are Vegan and gluten-free. Be sure to go check them out!

I first took pictures for Enza and Madeline to use on their website, but after Enza saw the photo session I did with Sugarpops Candy and Soda shop she contacted me about doing a similar session to create art to hang in the bakery.

We met at Jeton Park since it is close to their Cornelius bakery, and let the kids have some fun eating cupcakes! I had hoped that they would get messier, but these kiddos were so neat, and polite. Smiles and laughs flowed freely, but everyone managed to keep themselves free from stickiness!

My personal favorite Maddy’s Fattys cupcakes are Salted Caramel and Maple Chocolate Bacon — seriously heaven in your mouth! Go treat yourself to some decadence and let me know what your favorite flavor is!
