Soul Cups Tasting at Say Cheese Cafe

When Echo Park resident Celeste Alleyne isn’t working full-time at Microsoft as the Director of Community Affairs and Corporate Citizenship, she is baking up some delicious cupcakes through Soul Cups, her very own Los Angeles-based catering company.

We caught wind of Celeste and Soul Cups with the announcement of a tasting event of Soul Cups at Say Cheese Cafe, happening this weekend in Silver Lake!

“Say Cheese is an amazing establishment with the type of design esthetic and food insight I adore-Glenn Harrell is my mentor who has graciously asked me to showcase my cupcakes for every holiday in his cafe,” she says.

Make sure to stop by Say Cheese Cafe, located at 2800 Hyperion Ave in Silver Lake (right by the Trader Joe’s). The tasting event goes on Saturday, June 26 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. We definitely plan on stopping by to support our fellow Echo Park resident, especially since they are showcasing flavors like Strawberry Twist, Lemon Drop and Muddy Water Chocolate cupcakes. You’ll be able to taste, as a sample, Blueberry, Strawberry Twist and Apple Pie cupcakes (the samples are like mini cupcakes, which she calls “baby dots”). Yum!

The beautiful Celeste

In order to get to know our fellow Echo Park resident, we asked Celeste a few questions about living in Echo Park:

What’s your favorite place to go in Echo Park?

I love water–so I really enjoy the Echo Park Lake (and Silverlake Reservoir), especially love the Lake during the 4th of July when we can view the fireworks and Echo Park shows it’s neighborhood diversity in all its splendor! I also love the historical homes of Echo Park, and enjoy walking the neighborhood and discovering homes–I’ve lived in Echo Park for 6 years and own a 1923 bungalow.

My favorite places to eat are Masa’s and Genvieve’s bakery on Echo Park Boulevard.

Do you have anything else you’d like us to add about you, your cupcakes, and the event?

Soul Cups cupcakes are made from recipes that I kept from my Mom–I’ve turned many of her cakes and pies into cupcake treats–Pound ‘O Butter for example, is a take on her Lemon Poundcake recipe

I pride myself on making cupcakes that taste like “home”–no artificial ingredients-organic eggs, butter and spices from my Dad’s Caribbean Island roots. When you bite into a Soul Cups cupcake, you’ll want to take off your shoes, put your feet up and put on a Billy Holiday record.

How can Echo Park residents support you and your business?

I want folks to come out, taste, have fun and feel like they’re at “home”…

Echo Park residents can support by coming out to the event, purchasing cupcakes or going online to order  at

Oh, and one last thing….encourage the Coffee Pot on Sunset to carry Soul Cups too!

I have to agree with Celeste about the 4th of July activities in Echo Park – they are truly unique and exciting!

Thank you Celeste for taking the time to answer our questions, see you tomorrow!
