Dawn was born to be a pastry chef. When employment opportunities in her industry became scarce, she knew she had to create a job for herself. With encouragement from a friend, she enrolled in WEV’s Self-Employment Training program to gain the business skills she needed to launch Decadence Fine Cakes & Confections. She started by renting kitchen space for trade of her pastry chef know-how, and slowly built her clientele. Now, Dawn boasts an extensive client list of local customers and brides from all over the country, along with having her own commercial kitchen. Her creativity and intuition allow her to reinvent herself and take advantage of the right opportunities. Today, her business supports her family and community in a sweet way.
