Andrea Parks always had a creative passion for baking. Growing up she loved to make her “famous” chocolate chip cookies, and served them to her family. Over the years she learned more about the craft from the women in her family, especially from watching her mom decorate her and her sister’s birthday cakes, as well as learning from her aunt, a professional baker and pastry chef instructor. After fifteen years in the corporate world, she was unexpectedly laid off and realized this was her chance to do what she loved. She made cupcakes for a few friends as baby shower gifts which led to a surge of requests and never-ending orders. Andrea then spent time perfecting her original recipes and flavors, and one year and several pounds of sugar later, Frost Cupcake Factory was born! A local girl, Andrea grew up in Los Gatos and has lived in Campbell for the last 15 years.

The Bay Area Municipal Elections Committee (BAYMEC) is a four-county lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) political action group. It has been advocating for the civil rights of LGBT people since 1984. It is the only political action committee (PAC) dedicated to this purpose in the central coast counties of San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey. BAYMEC is governed by a Board of Directors and is supported solely through private contributions.
The organization’s purpose is to lobby and fight for LGBT civil rights. BAYMEC has raised its concerns with countless politicians; worked to elect LGBT people and supportive allies to political offices; lobbied Sacramento and the state on AIDS and LGBT civil rights; and worked with police, fire department, governmental, organizational, and a variety of community groups to further equality for LGBTs. However, perhaps one of BAYMEC’s greatest accomplishments is ongoing: It provides an experienced, broad-based, and coherent political voice for the LGBT community.
