About Bella Cupcake Couture: Founded in 2008 by Carrie Middlemiss, after being laid off as an 18-year employee of Washington Mutual Bank, which collapsed as a result of the economic downturn. Carrie had always wanted to contribute to the cupcake community and saw this as the perfect opportunity to follow her passion.

Carrie wanted to create something fashionable for the bottom portion of her cupcakes and always said "Why should the frosting have all the limelight?"

Carrie envisions her wrappers at weddings, bridal and baby showers, housewarming present or just because. Carrie says “Our hope is that our Bella Cupcake Couture wrappers bring smiles to the ones you care about and create cherished memories with fri and family.” Carrie Middlemiss was recently selected as Martha Stewart's "Doer of the Week" and will be featured in the upcoming film “Shine” which features entrepreneurs at the heart of the American Dream.
