In case you missed the interview this morning here is a recap of what happened #JoeClair #FinesseMitchell #DCSweetpotatoCake
Derek says that the DC Sweet Potato Cake is NOT the cake to “die for”…it IS the cake to “live for”. We love this quote.. He rocks! #cakecreator #cakeboss #goderek
I’m having a cup of tea @starbucks at the SBUX location that started my company’s journey. I sit in quiet and look at how far DC Sweet Potato Cake has come since debuting in SBUX stores back in March. To see people buy our cake with a cup of coffee is humbling. I sat in this store in Lanham, MD back in March thinking why couldn’t I be in business with one of the most powerful companies in America. And I saw no reason why I couldn’t. While walking in SBUX, the door reads “Coffee Brings People Together” and in short, it does. I am thankful for the SBUX family and customers who have taken a chance on a small company like ours. So grateful… #DCSweetPotatoCake #Starbucks #sbux
We made a MESS while baking our famous Sweet Potato PIES at @MessHall. DC’s most amazing kitchen incubator. We baked over 400 Sweet Potato Pies in one shift. We are killing the sweet potato game.
Business partners Derek and April show Operations Manager Debbie how to dance (with two left feet). Despite getting the dance totally wrong…at least they can bake! We call our dance “the shake and bake”. #TasteofDC #DCSweetPotatoCake
ALERT! This officer stopped traffic to buy his DC Sweet Potato Cake. Keep a slice of cake in your car at all times to use as your get out of jail free card. #BribeanOfficer #ProtectandServe…Cake (lol) #TasteofDC.
DC Sweet Potato “serves” cake at the Taste of DC. We gave away over 1,000 samples to DC foodies. Our sweet potato lovers came and met us at the Taste! They showed up and showed out. They came from Baltimore to Stafford Virginia. They knew our product from Wegmans, Starbucks, Nordstrom, MGM Roast Beef, Peace and a Cup of Joe, Torries and Ben’s Next Door. But wait…even the team that kicked our butts in kickball supported us. #WeGotFriends #DCSweetPotatoCake
Many people ask, And our answer..find people and companies that understand, support and can help grow and sustain your vision. Cheers to partnering.
We moved our cake production into DC and we love being in the city! We joined the Mess Hall team!!! The people, the scene, the food movement and the support. While we build our new retail location in the Arts District in Hyattsville, you can order online and still get your delectables delivered to your door. Hey! Prince George’s County, no worries, we will be back in early Spring 2016……DC, no worries, we won’t leave you. Hmmmmm……. here’s an idea…… how about 2 bakery locations in our two favorite places. What do you think??????
