Kellee Pruitt aka Cake Momma!
My name is Kellee Pruitt. The name of my company is Designs By Cake Daddy and I reside in Glenn Heights (Dallas), Texas. My husband I started our business after he was laid off from his job in 2013. We prayed about what he was going to do next and decided to start a cake ministry/business. In fact, this cake ministry was an extension of my mother-in-law’s pastry & catering business, Ms. Alice’s Shop. In 2014, we decided to branch off and start our own entity with the focus of custom cakes. Since the start of our business, the most rewarding thing about running our business is serving our customers and seeing the expressions of joy on their faces.
Additionally, the three pieces of advice I would give to the younger generation when exploring entrepreneurship would be to save and put money in the bank in case of slow/down times, learn how to say no as to not overbook and/or overwork yourself and finally properly prepare for the road ahead by keeping your eyes on the prize in a world full of distractions. Being an entrepreneur has affected my family however it has brought us closer together. We have learned how to communicate better, be open, authentic, and connected.
I am motivated by the wonderful customers we serve on a regular basis, God’s continuous favor and blessings, and something that I have did or said has inspired others.
I see myself and our business with a staff in a commercial kitchen. This way it will give us other opportunities to do classes and other possible avenues. We plan to eventually host classes of all kinds.
