Among the many community events supported by Papa's Cupcakes is the annual Upper Bucks Celtic Fest, where these two lads enjoyed appropriately green cake pops.

There’s plenty of pride at Papa’s Cupcakes in Perkasie. And that’s understandable, given the culinary care that goes into its tasty treats. But the married owners — John Ferraro and Bryan Berchok — also routinely supply their delectable desserts to area Pride events and causes. Cora Berke licked her competition in presenting this story for the Visit Bucks County blog.

The business started modestly: Ferraro, pharmacist, started baking cupcakes as a school dessert for the couple’s son.

The treats’ reputation spread first throughout the cafeteria and then beyond. Ferraro was soon getting contacted to supply cupcakes for student birthday parties from parents across the community.

At one gathering, a friend suggested he transition to baking full time. Swapping pills for pans, Ferraro formally retired his mortar and pestle.

He first operated Papa’s Kitchen from home, which he had licensed and insured as a commercial-grade baking spot. Later, the business landed in a shared space with the Perkasie Florist, and Berchok’s baking skills filled out the menu with scones and cake pops.

The benefit of all-natural ingredients intensifies the flavor profiles throughout the menu: Chocolate Bomb, Triple Vanilla, Lemon Drop, and Spring Strawberry.

In addition to being available at their storefront, the Ferraro-and-Berchok bakery items are sold at the Perkasie Farmer’s Market.

While supplies last, of course.
