Over the Rainbow

A family member asked me on Christmas Eve, "Why don't you make a rainbow cookie cupcake?" I said why not.


Here it is, filled with chocolate raspberry ganache, frosted with raspberry almond cream cheese frosting (TO DIE) and sprinkled with chocolate jimmies. Thanks, Benji! This one is something special.

Key to Your Heart

Lori's Sublime Lime

A key lime cupcake filled with key lime curd,
topped with a layer of white chocolate ganache
and tangy key lime cream cheese frosting.


I can only find key limes locally in August,
but I can substitute regular lime zest and
bottled key lime juice for cravings all year round.
One of my all-time favorites. Still delish!

Jaime's Perfect Fall

Pumking Ale was introduced to me by my coworker Jaime,
who challenged me to make a cupcake with it.
The spices and effervescence from the brew make these
cakes incredible flavorful and light. If you love pumpkin
(or even if you don't) these are a must-try.
The beer is only available for about a month in early fall,
so get your orders in early to secure a dozen of so!!


Spiced pumpkin cake made with organic pumpkin and
Pumking Ale, topped with a pumpkin cream cheese frosting.
A hint of cinnamon, a sprinkle of fresh ground nutmeg and a sliver of crystal ginger make this perfect for those fall nights.

The Nogster

This one SCREAMS Holiday Celebration!
This baby may not look very special, but hold
onto your elf shoes! Dark chocolate cake infused
with coffee, filled with espresso ganache and
topped with an egg nog cream cheese frosting
and a touch of fresh grated nutmeg. Can also be
made with a Kahlua ganache - for adults only.

'Lil Gingey

Traditional holiday spiced
gingerbread cake topped with a
maple cream cheese frosting.

this is my story and i'm sticking to it

My name is Valerie and I was born and raised on Long Island. I've always enjoyed cooking and baking, but leaned more toward baking because I love the discipline  and science of the process, yet find the creative freedom in experimenting with new flavors amazing, inspiring and downright fun.


Sweet Epiphany LI was born because I was listening to  a radio DJ and he started talking about passion, and how to make a living doing what you love, thus, the epiphany. The next steps were to make it official and successful.



Being a proud Long Islander, I appreciate all the offerings we have access to - from the wineries and farmstands to the pristine beaches and incredible restaurants. My goal is to have my cupcakes become part of the landscape and magic that is Long Island.


I use locally sourced ingredients when possible and craft each cake with love and care.  I even make my own extracts from local organic fruits and LIV Vodka.


I currently live in Islip with my two pugs, Samson and Delilah, and they approve this message.


hello there. . .



Small batch cupcakes, made with love.
