After the birth of her son, Debra Coleman resigned from her corporate job, and started working from home in a field for which she has a true passion: baking. Today, her handmade, handheld cakes excite taste buds with the flavors of real sweet cream butter, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, free-range eggs, and fresh fruit. Thanks to her handiwork, wedding and banquet guests of all ages dine on decadent desserts topped with cloud-like dollops of frosting and gourmet sprinkles, while grown-ups celebrate responsibly with cupcakes spiked with rum and Kahlua.
Coleman and her company give back to the community through a wealth of civic-minded initiatives. That includes using only eco-friendly cleaning products and recyclable materials in the kitchen, and donating a portion of the weekly profits to Atlanta-area schools and women's and children's shelters.
