Annette Starbuck Is the Ultimate 'Goodie Girl'

The L.A.-Based Baker and Entrepreneur Brings Back Delightful Childhood Memories With a Newly Launched Brand of Divine Tasting Designer Cupcakes She Calls 'A Petite Treat Affair'

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - Gearing up for the May 2011 opening the first storefront location of Goodie Girls (www.thegoodiegirls.com) in Glendale, Calif., her creative and wildly delicious, highly acclaimed new line of designer cupcakes, Annette Starbuck laughs when she thinks back to the first time she tried to cook anything while growing up in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Mac and cheese should have been easy for the typical 11-year-old, but she didn't let it boil long enough and wound up with a pot full of hard noodles. Another time, she remembers almost setting the house on fire.

Many years of trial and error, and a certification from Wilton (the industry leader in cake decorating, quality bakeware and food crafting) later, Starbuck is now a baker extraordinaire and ambitious entrepreneur -- and she's ready for her sweet confections to excite the taste buds of her first official walkup customers.

Goodie Girls, which Starbuck likes to call "A Petite Treat Affair," is located two blocks from the iconic Americana at Brand shopping and entertainment center. The cupcakes are currently available close to this spot at the Mediterranean Grill and the RayHun sandwich shop.

She is bringing Goodie Girls to numerous charity driven events this spring. Goodie Girls will have a booth at the Movable Feast benefiting St. Johns at Union Station May 15 and will be a gifting suite sponsor and have a booth May 22 at the Dream Magazine Summer Kick-off Party, which is raising money for Caley Camarillo, a young girl with cystic fibrosis. Starbuck also earned an invitation to participate in February's Drink Eat Play Cupcake Challenge at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood.

Beyond the basics (vanilla cream, chocolate bliss, classic red velvet), Goodie Girls has cupcakes named Strawberry Lemonade (strawberry cake, lemonade frosting), Salted Caramel, Chambord, Birthday Time, Coconut, Orange Dreamsicle, Bubbly, Hostess,Cinnamon Sugar and two inspired by her lifelong love of PB&J and Blueberry Pancakes. For more sophisticated tastes, there are Green Tea cupcakes and strawberry cupcakes with Champagne frosting.

Starbuck has also developed Cake-Ups, her unique twist on the current pushup cupcake trend that is becoming popular at local events.
