We got a little surprise at the City Paper office one Thursday — push-up style cake pops from Perrysburg’s 7 Little Cupcakes. (They were sent as part of the fun press materials for Sand-Tastic! at Levis Commons.) We dug the fun, colorful confections, and had a chat with proprietor Janee Carpenter, who sells her baked goods at Nedley’s Hershey Ice Cream on South Boundary. Carpenter always baked for friends and family, but launched the business upon becoming pregnant with her seventh child (the seventh little cupcake — hence the name!). She ran 7 Little Cupcakes strictly out of her home for nearly three years, before getting the opportunity to sell at Nedley’s, which she provides with fresh product every day. You can still order directly, though — check out the website for the selection of cupcakes, cupcake sandwiches, festive wedding cakes and a lot more.
