Fond of saying that God is the founder of Taste T’s and she is the organizer, Stephens never considered herself to be a baker or had any previous interest in the baking business. The idea for Taste T’s came to Stephens one afternoon during church services. Shortly after the initial idea, Stephens and her daughters found themselves experimenting in the kitchen baking peach cobbler & Oreo cookies N’ cream cupctakes. After receiving a bounty of compliments from family and friends, Taste T’s Classy Cupcakes N’ Thangs was born. A significant differentiator for Taste T’s is that customers can apply special flavoring, known as “drizzle sauce” to each cupcake.
