NAVARRE — Most people get a craving for some sweets every now and then.

A new catering business based in Navarre looks to satisfy those cravings.

Kate Sharrett Mast started CRAVE: cupcakes last year out of her home after the state Legislature approved the cottage food law last year. The business serves the Navarre, Fort Walton Beach and Destin areas.

“I’ve always loved to cook,” Mast said. “My dad just really instilled a love of cooking in me and all the kids in my family at an early age.

“I don’t feel like I’m very artistic until it comes to cupcakes,” she added. “I’m not like an artsy person. I can’t paint picture to save my life, but I love making the fondant designs.”

The new law allows individuals to make and sell cottage food products such as cakes, cookies and pies as long as the items are packaged correctly and all the ingredients are labeled.

After a recent move, Mast said she is trying to grow her business in the Navarre and Gulf Breeze area because there are no other bakeries there that focus on cupcakes.
