About Smallcakes Utopia

Our team

In 2014 Steve (CJ), Samantha and 5 friends took a little trip to a small town in Georgia for a birthday get away. When leaving town they decided to stop at a Smallcakes Cupcakery for the first time and get a couple each to go. After the five-hour drive home, they tried their delicious wonders and wished they had purchased more, as there were no locations close by.

Two years passed and CJ and Samantha were planning their wedding. The subject of whether to do a cake vs. cupcakes came to conversation and the first thing they both thought of were the amazing cupcakes they had in Georgia. They searched for a location near by but had no luck. An idea sprung! They could add a location in Charlotte and become the hero's of the town.

CJ and Samantha are now married with a little son SJ, short for Steve Jr, and are excited to take on this new journey and bring delicious cupcakes and ice cream to Charlotte. They have found their happy place with starting this business and believe a cupcake will always help bring happiness to others as well. To them, it’s like utopia - "a place of ideal perfection!" Stop in and visit the White family, and who knows, maybe you will find your Utopia as well!

I have been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years working from fast food to fine dinning. After getting my culinary degree I realized baking was my passion! While strengthening my knowledge in the field I returned to school to obtain a Math for Business degree and decided to combine my specialties to bring Utopia to Charlotte!
