Jason and Cathy Richardson, Owners
Favorite Gigi's Cupcake:
Jason and Cathy Richardson are the
owners of Gigi's Cupcakes of Ridgeland and Gigi's Cupcakes of Flowood, Mississippi.
They became cupcake bakery owners because their daughter has always had high expectations on her birthday. "Every year our daughter requested an extra-special birthday cake, and each year our baking got more and more creative," says Cathy. "The year
she asked me to create 24 custom puppy-decorated cupcakes was the year that
started it all."
Their daughter invited friends over to see, pictures were shared through Social media and so it began. Before she knew it, Cathy was decorating cakes and cupcakes for church
friends, family, school functions, parties and even weddings. The owner of another decorating business at the time, Cathy sat down for a cup of coffee to watch The Today Show and a feature story about the popularity of cupcakes. Cathy thought 'THAT'S what I'm doing!" After researching for 6 months, Cathy and Jason discovered Gigi's Cupcakes.
Since then, Gigi's in Flowood and Ridgeland, Mississippi have brought smiles to thousands all over the Jackson, Mississippi area.
