I own a cake-decorating business. I mainly take orders via my website. Several years ago, I had an interest in learning more about cake decorating basics. So, I took a cake-decorating class and was so passionate that I was later asked to be the teacher of that same class. I taught for 3 years and decided to start my own business. Thus, Dessert First, LLC was formed using free grants in Michigan for MWBE businesses.
I love what I do and I offer custom-designed cakes for all occasions. I also love the amount of financial assistance in the forms of grants and loans that are offered for minority and women businesses in Michigan.
Dessert First was founded in 2011 specializing in custom cupcakes and cakes for all occasions. We treat every customer like they are part of our family, adding a personal touch to every event. Our commitment to customer service and our focus on details are what sets us apart.
Cake saved my life! I was in-between jobs and desperately seeking a career I was passionate about. I love to make people smile, which is why I began my small business of cake decorating. I started in a home kitchen, with limited space and resources. I sold at my local Farmers Market and developed a grass-roots following. Because of my loyal customers, my business has grown. I am now seeking a kitchen/building of my own and to do that, I need to hire employees, purchase equipment and inventory. It warms my heart every time I see a person’s face light up because I created something special–in my kitchen–for their celebration. The sacrifice is minimal and the reward is MAXIMAL!
