Food: Cakery D

Even if you've had your fill of the recent cupcake craze, make room for this morsel about an enterprising young baker in Stowe. Thirteen-year-old Drew Springer-Miller cut her sweet tooth a year ago after taking a cake-decorating class with her mom. Her creations — including coconut cupcakes with lime cream-cheese frosting — grew popular at school and community bake sales. She soon started filling orders for parties, and developed a business logo for Cakery D. Now she's selling her sweets at Edelweiss Mountain Deli in Stowe. Along the way, she's used her mom and dad as "venture capital" investors; they helped her purchase baking pans and decorating equipment. They've also offered advice on pricing, quantity estimations and delivery. "It's been a good teaching experience," says her mom, Tina Springer-Miller. Call it sweet smarts.

Cakery D: Cupcakes available made to order, or at the Edelweiss Mountain Deli on the Mountain Road in Stowe. Info, cakeryd@aol.com.
