Small-business selfie winner: Heather McDonnell of Cupcrazed Cakery in Fort Mill, SC

“I have always cooked and baked at home, even when I was a kid,” says Heather McDonnell, owner of Cupcrazed Cakery in Fort Mill, S.C.

She opened her bakery in Baxter Village in 2010 – and soon drew notice. Winning an episode of the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” didn’t hurt, either.

“Cupcakes are our passion,” she says, “but with more than 300 cookie cutters in our kitchen, you might call that our obsession.” For her fun take on her business, we’re sending McDonnell a $10 gift card to Brixx Pizza.

Send us your selfie and you can win a gift card, too. Use your mobile device to take candid photos of yourselves at work in your business, showing off what you do in your environment. You can ask someone to take photos of you at work, too, but we don’t want professional shots. We’re looking for candid shots that capture the “selfie” spirit.

Go to charlotteobserver.com/shoptalk to upload your photos. The best photos will run here each week.
