Cupcake Island is Omaha’s first cupcake shop, founded in 2006 by Ed LeFebvre and Shirley Neary.
It was Ed’s reputation and skill as a baker and Shirley’s desire for a retail storefront that brought them together in this enterprise, offering cakes and cupcakes. The work, fun and creativity began with numerous meetings, lots of research and plenty of tastings.
A location was chosen near 120th and Pacific at 1314 S 119th St. where the only Cupcake Island in Omaha still stands, today. The store’s motto is “Our Cake Stands Alone.”
In 2012, Shirley moved on to other ventures. Ed remains the owner, manager, and baker. The goal of all the staff at Cupcake Island is to create cakes and cupcakes which are tasty, look amazing, and are a great addition to any event or celebration.
