Allison Robicelli is best known for the insanely decadent desserts that she developed with her husband Matt for their Brooklyn bakery, Robicelli’s. Their cupcakes like the Nutella Lasagna became viral hits and their book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story with Cupcakes was on a zillion best-seller lists. In the last year, though, the couple closed their shop, moved to Baltimore, and hit the pause button. Allison shares stories of near super-human resilience: thriving after the financial crisis squelched her business, tending to Matt through repeated hospital stays, finding an outlet for anguish and joy through writing.
