How It All Started 🌱
Marcus waved goodbye to animal products and hello to a plant-based lifestyle, igniting our vision to rethink traditional baking. Mixing Cara's baking magic with Marcus's plant-powered insights, we conjured up drool-worthy vegan desserts that lost zero points in the flavor game.
🎂 Grandma Approved! 🎂 Cara left her 9-to-5 to care for our beloved Grandma Mary Lee, our OG taste-tester. At a youthful 100, she's the reigning queen of Southern Roots, celebrating life with her very own "Mary Lee's Lemon Cake!"
From Farmers' Markets to Stardom 🌟
We started humbly, sweetening up local farmers' markets, only to be rocketed into the limelight by none other than vegan queen Tabitha Brown! Her shoutout, along with media buzz, skyrocketed us from local gems to nationwide sensations! 🚀
🏆 Awards & Accolades 🏆 We're talking back-to-back "Best Vegan Bakery" nods from VegNews, PETA awards, and media love from the likes of Oprah Daily and Good Morning America. We're not bragging; we're just super grateful! 🙏
A Spoonful of Social Good 💕
Given Cara's caregiving background, we have a soft spot for seniors. Our vision? Placing our desserts in senior living communities across America, because everyone deserves a slice of heaven, no matter their age!
