Her husband, Dan, works at LeRoy's Jewelers at Charleston Town Center and helps with the cupcake business as time permits.
They have six children between them: Josh Samples, 28, Ben Samples, 23, Joel Blevins, 21, Jacob Samples, 20, Cameron Blevins, 19, and Elyse Blevins, 10.
When business is especially brisk, family pitches in to help.
Blevins is already planning specialties for Valentine's Day. There will be a giant cupcake with chocolate dipped strawberries and heart-shaped sparkles. A limited number of Valentine Towers will be available. A tower includes a box of cupcakes on the bottom, Heavenwiches in the center, and cupcake-stuffed strawberries dipped in chocolate on top.
"I love to create," she said.
She said people love cupcakes because they offer a sense of nostalgia. Plus, each one is like an individual dessert with built-in portion control.
She attributes the sweet success of her business to working hard, treating people right, and trusting God.
"From the day we started, I knew that what God meant for this to be, it would be," she said.
As business steadily increases, she and her husband sometimes discuss expanding the operation. However, she likes being able to give the personal touch and seems to have keeping up down to a science.
"I've done it so long it's second nature," she said. "I've got it down to a pattern. It tends to work."
