Cars are often double-parked. Lines were coming out the door and down the street on South Sixth Avenue, Saturday, Oct 10, 2015, for the grand opening of Cupcake Cutie Boutique. Offering over 30 varieties of gourmet Cupcakes and Sweet Treats, the mother-daughter bakery located at 8 South Sixth Avenue, had a steady flow of traffic from 7am to 7pm, selling over 700 cupcakes and selling out just before 5pm. DJ Tri-State Jericko, known to many as the Voice of Westchester entertained customers on the ones and twos, throughout the afternoon.

“We offer an unprecedented collection of flavors and frostings,” said Miesha Stokley, Founder, and Co-Owner of Cupcake Cutie Boutique. “Our trained culinary team has developed a one-stop-shop for your favorite cupcakes and treats in the state of New York.”

In addition to the vast assortment of gourmet cupcakes and sweet treats, Mount Vernon based bakery will offer mouth-watering breakfast selections, diabetic and vegan options.

“It’s essential that we offer something for everyone,” added Stokely. “Our vegan and diabetic-friendly product line offers a delicious option for individuals with dietary restrictions or limitations.

Cupcake Cutie Boutique caters all social events and offer monthly cupcake decorating classes and more. Their annual Gingerbread House Party is always a huge success, where young girls get a chance to decorate their Gingerbread Houses. Another annual event is their Tasting Gala, A Cupcake Winter Wonderland.

Miesha also started Black Girls Bake Inc, a not-for-profit organization for girls and women, designed to support their passion and expertise on the craft of baking.

“This is just the start of the Cupcake Cutie Boutique brand,” said Stokley. “We are looking forward to expanding this bakery concept across the entire metro area and beyond. One taste of our products will put a smile on any customer’s face.”

Stokley (daughter) is a life-long Mount Vernon resident and a graduate of Mount Vernon High School. Stokely then went on to attend the University of Miami where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and is currently employed as a Labor and Delivery Nurse at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Montika Jones (mother) is also a life-long Mount Vernon resident and graduate of Mount Vernon High School. Jones is a decorated Detective of the Mount Vernon Police Department, promoted to detective Thursday, January 2, 2014. She donates much of her time to help her community and wife of Black Westchester Publisher, Damon K. Jones.

“Detective Montika Jones of the Mount Vernon Police Department
understands the importance of a healthy relationship with officers and citizens. “There needs to be a bridge where we can meet in the middle,” stated Detective Jones with a smile. She believes that the community in Mt. Vernon will benefit from participating in National Coffee with a Cop day, Saturday, October 28, 2017. The twist to this bridge was including cupcakes into the equation. Cupcake Cutie Boutique hosted the event on a perfect day.

Citizens of Mount Vernon engaged in conversations and concerns with members from the Mt. Vernon Police Department. Dr. Cornell West spoke of serving the people with love. Without conversations with both citizens and officers, the relationship will continue to be loveless” shared Cynthia Turnquest-Jones of Tha BUMP (Tha Brown Urban Mother Partnership).

Westchester Magazine described their Alcohol-infused cupcakes:
This one is for the adults! In Mount Vernon, this mother-daughter-owned business is serving up a party by specializing in cupcakes infused with liquor. Try their Patron margarita cupcake, the spiked piña colada, or the Baileys Irish Creamette.

Don’t worry kids, there are still plenty of delicious flavors for you to try. Some of the most popular include the banana-pudding cupcake, a banana-cinnamon cake filled with banana pudding, frosted with banana buttercream, and topped with a vanilla wafer. Other favorites include the fudgy brownie-sundae cupcake and red velvet with cream cheese frosting.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer presented Miesha Stokley and Montika Jones of Cupcake Cutie Boutique with a proclamation in celebration of their Four-Year Anniversary, on Friday, November 1, 2019.

“As always I’m proud of Montika S. Jones and Miesha Sarah for their accomplishments as Black Women and Black Business Owners,” Black Westchester Publisher Damon K. Jones shares. “Today they’ve received a Proclamation for Westchester Country Executive George Latimer for their hard work and community service.”
