“Everyone loves a cupcake.” It’s a simple truth, Tressa LeBoeuf says, and it may be why her business, Citizen Sweet, is booming. LeBoeuf launched a cupcake delivery business earlier this year, and already her growing customer-base runs the gamut. “If you’re in the corporate world, this is a great gift to send a client because we can even customize the box with a company’s colors or logo. Or, if you’re a working mom who doesn’t have time to bake cupcakes and drop them off at your child’s school, we can deliver them for you with a card that says ‘love mom’.” Aside from cupcakes, customers can order muffins, twists and cookies. All of those are baked fresh daily with organic ingredients. “I’m a foodie at heart, so it was really important to me that we made real food, no preservatives, trans fat, or anything artificial.” In fact, LeBoeuf explains that her top-selling cupcake is the black velvet, “not to be confused with red velvet, because there’s no red dye No. 4 in it.”
