$15,000 small business loan
Sugar Babe Cupcakes is owned by Angela Malpedo. Angela started her business in January 2010, baking in the commercial kitchen at the Masonic Temple in Bethlehem. Anxious to have her own space, she located property on Broad Street that needed fire safety improvements before it could be used as a bakery. Besides the retail location, Angela bakes for weddings and corporate events.
The Rising Tide Community Loan Fund provided a loan to install safety features in the kitchen.
