There's a South Boston woman who's not only making cupcakes — but also local culinary history. Lisa Mackin was the very first person to receive a permit to operate a residential kitchen in Boston. That came in August thanks to a change in the law approved by the city council earlier this year.

Mackin joins us to talk about her company Boston Baked Blossoms, how business is going so far and what it takes to set up a residential food operation in the city.

And here are the results from our host Tiziana Dearing's attempt at her own cupcake bouquet:
