Port-A-Bella Bella


The weekend before last, I visited my mother in Port Orchard, WA. While I was there we went down to visit the Port Orchard Farmers Market to sample Bella Bella Cupcakes. This team of bakers was recently a sponsor in CupcakeCamp Seattle and came in 1st place for Best Seattle theme with their Pacific NW Sustainable Granola Cupcake (seen below).

While there we selected six flavors....red velvet, mocha, coconut, lemon raspberry x2 and Nutella (or was it hazelnut?). The lemon raspberry was my favorite! Loved the sweet and tangy combo.

One of the owners Donna was there with one of the other owners Amie's brother. He was in town visiting from Alaska and helping out his sister to spread the love of cupcakes at the market.




They had a pretty sweet display of cupcakes. Including this one below.... ;) feauturing our Bella Cupcake Couture in Lu Lu Red/White.

While there I also ran into another CupcakeCamp Seattle participant Little Miss Cupcake; Crissie. She was there helping with the family business; Taste of Eden. They had a huge selection of tasty pastries and breads. I picked up a delicious lemon blueberry loaf.


All in all it was a sweet day in Port Orchard with Bella Bella Cupcakes and Little Miss Cupcakes!
