We had the good fortune of connecting with Chase Dupree and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chase, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I’ve always had a love for cupcakes; so when I contemplated starting a cupcakery I knew I wanted my cupcakes to have a twist. And what better twist than an alcoholic one. I didn’t need to re-invent the wheel, just add a little edge and Black girl magic. And voila! Cupfusion Cupcakery was created.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Cupfusion Cupcakery is a specialty cupcakery based in Houston, Texas; appealing to cosmopolitan urbanites with novel takes on the cupcakes and cocktails experience. We specialize in hand-crafted, signature cupcakes infused with premium liqueurs and spirits. These deliciously sophisticated, rich and indulgent updates on an American classic are perfect for every occasion.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We’d definitely recommend the following jaunts: – Trez Art and Wine Bar (drinks and socializing; they also offer brunch)
– 5015 (Sunday Funday: eat and drink)
– Lost & Found (hang-out, eat and drink)
– Taste Bar & Kitchen (eat and drink)
– Urban Social (drink)
– Love and Make (nice date night or girl’s day activity: DIY candles, soaps and bath bombs)
– Da Spot (hang-out)
– Sparkle Burgers and Daiquiris (best burgers in Houston, hands down)
– Kele’s Kloset (boutique shopping)
– MuscleHeadzHouston (if you want to get a workout session)
