Welcome to Mika's Cupcakes
Mika's Cupcakes founded in May of 2011 by Malika and Adeyinka Awobajo. At this time the couple was taking care of multiple homeless families. Even though the couple and their new born son lived in a very small two bedroom apartment in east Hayward, they could never turn down a person in need. Unfortunately, they did not have the means to provide for all the people they cared for. So they began baking just to help feed and shelter the families they were looking after.
As time went on the couple developed a deep passion for gourmet innovative desserts and built a wonderful reputation in their local community. As they continue to help homeless teens and families they are using part of the proceeds from their in home bakery to open a youth transitional shelter and secure a permanent store front so they can be more effective in helping to solve the homeless problem in their native California Bay Area. It is their goal to employ troubled and homeless youths and teach them the art of dessert making. Their creations are innovative, fun and limitless.
So enjoy the harmony of flavors as you indulge into a sweet dessert from Mika's Cupcakes.
