Kara Haspel Lind is spoiling the Bay Area, with not 1– but 5– locations of her wildly successful cupcake shops, called Kara’s Cupcakes.
Kara’s Cupcakes is the anchor of the Oxbow Market, and sets the tone for the well-edited culinary experience there.
I met Kara on the first week of the opening of her first shop in the Marina– and have been a huge fan sending out dozens of cupcakes to friends in the delivery room, school parties, work lunches, and every reason in between. What captures my attention most about Kara + her business, is she’s figured out how to be married (to her business partner), raise a 4 year-old daughter, run a mini empire (that is only 5 years old), and be truly philanthropic at the same time..
