Made in the USA

What’s in a label?  We all know the answer to that question:  jobs.

So I started to wonder if the cupcake industry should be declared the gold star of American business for creating local jobs.  Cupcakes from The Cupcake Shoppe Bakery in Raleigh to the Little Cake Bakery in Atlanta are baked fresh daily in our local bakeries.  This part of the argument seemed easy enough.

But are supplies made in the USA also easy to find?

Cupcake Couture

How about these lovely cupcake holders from House on the Hill, made in Seattle Washington, that they put on their website under “Cupcake Couture?”  Or, check out Wedding Fads for their baking supplies, like cupcake stands the size of wedding cakes – all made in the USA.  Global Sugar Art has a multi-page list of supplies, including lovely, lacey cupcake wrappers that are laser cut in the USA.

Just by adding “made in the USA” to your search strings for supplies and suppliers, you can join in the patriotic parade.
