Miss Moffett’s Founder – Rachel Young

Our Founder

Miss Moffett’s Mystical Cupcakes was founded in 2012 by Olympia resident Rachel Young. Rachel started baking in 2011, and soon realized she had found the passion in life that she’d always been looking for: CUPCAKES. Rachel Young became a certified baking addict — baking cupcakes at all hours of the day and night, coming up with unique flavor combinations and tweaking recipes until they were as close to perfection as possible.

She appeared on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars in fall of 2013 and just a few months later opened her first storefront downtown Olympia by the Farmer’s Market. The operation has blossomed into three retail stores with several wholesale outlets.

Rachel now leads a team of bakers and cupcake magicians to deliver the most scrumptious treats in Thurston County and beyond. She serves on several local nonprofit boards and is also a public speaker who is passionate about inspiring female entrepreneurs, both young and old, to take action and make their dreams a reality.

Our Business

Miss Moffett's Mystical CupcakesMiss Moffett’s Mystical Cupcakes is backed by a team of extraordinary, passionate bakers and cupcake decorators, AKA “Cupcake Magicians”, each bringing unique experiences and baking talents to the table. And we wouldn’t be able to function without our dynamic front end staff, who provide heartfelt authentic moments of incredible care to each and every customer. Our company would not be complete without this mystical, magical team!

Our Community

We are appreciative of how much our community has embraced us and so we love giving back and being involved in the community. As such, here are a handful of organizations we are involved in.

Partners in EducationPartners in EducationNorth Thurston Public Schools

This year we have the wonderful opportunity to partner with the North Thurston School District as a PIE (Partners In Education) with Lakes Elementary and Komachin Middle School.  What this means is that aside from making monetary donations to help the school in areas of need, our owner, Rachel Young, will be volunteering time to support different events and school programs throughout the year. Our main objective is to help students gain the confidence and empowerment to take control of their dreams.
