More coverage
  • Curb your appetite? No way!
  • Tricked-out trucks
  • Food trucks here to party
  • Specialties: Every single cupcake is special because they truly are Made with Love, but the favorite is my Southern Red Velvet.  It is a cocoa buttermilk cake made with a Madagascar bourbon vanilla cream cheese frosting.

    Tell us something about you or your business that you want the world to know: Before starting my sweets-to-the-streets business, my previous profession was in the legal field.  Don't wait any longer,  follow your heart and make it a reality.

    Why do you deserve to win the Vendy Award?: I might not be able to win us the Super Bowl but I can make Philadelphians happy by creating modern desserts that not only look good but taste just as good.   I am committed to bring that high standard that they look for in every single dessert that I make.
