A RAD 80's themed bakery that ROCKS your tastebuds! As seen on CUPCAKE WARS!!!

As seen on the TV show CUPCAKE WARS season 5 on Food Network.

My name is Alyssa Logan and I have been a baking since I was 3 years old, in my grandma's kitchen.

My grandmother was such a wonderful self-taught cook, who taught my mother and myself as well. She was pre-Paula Deen, and used butter in everything! I would spend wonderful quality time in the kitchen, learning life lessons at the same time as I was learning how much sugar to add to a recipe. I coveted every minute with my grandmother and I have such fond memories of my childhood. Sadly, my grandmother passed away in 1999, but I keep her memory alive with me while baking. The aromas of baking cakes, cookies and pies remind me of her, and it makes me smile. Our special time lives on through her recipes.

I started '83 Sweets in 2010, and hit the ground running. I am a home based bakery-delivery business. Right now, I advertise by word of mouth, through family and friends, or self-made business cards and flyers. I have a very low budget, so I do what I can.

For the future, I plan to open a cupcake truck delivery business. It is simple, there is no rent or utilities to pay, and I get to bring the baking to you, my customer, which keeps it interesting. I travel between Dayton and Southern Ohio quite a bit, providing a broad delivery zone!

My mother, who is also my baking assistant and business consultant, owns a farm. This is where I get all of the fresh eggs that I bake with. They are wonderful, organic, free-range eggs, and best of all, FREE! And their freshness really makes a difference. I also try to use organic ingredients whenever I can, and try to keep everything as natural as possible.

I also believe in supporting other local small businesses and the local economy. This builds a strong community, and helps support business and customer relationships.

I chose the name '83 Sweets because 1983 is the year I was born! It was a wonderful time, and the early beginnings of my baking skills (not to mention the ROCKING MUSIC!) Each of my cupcakes has an 80s themed name, such as, "Little Red Corvelvet," "White Wedding Cake," "Punkin Brewster," and "The Goonies Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough." My cupcake flavor list is always growing and I hope to one day offer 83 flavors!

Other then owning/operating a small business, I am a recent art school graduate, a proud wife to my handsome husband, who is an Army vet and had served overseas in Iraq, and a mother to our adorable little boy, who is the cutest little cupcake I will ever make!

Thank you for taking the time to read about us and hope this has sparked an interest in our products and services!
