Not everyone goes on to make a career out of what they loved to do when they were a child. But for Carrie Shelley, baking in her grandmother’s kitchen at the age of 4 unleashed a passion she enthusiastically turned into a business. At Enchanted Cakes and Treats, Carrie revels in inventing unique concoctions, shaping cakes into frogs, wedding dresses, and footballs in flavors such as red velvet, coconut, amaretto, and chocolate. She also whips up a colorful variety of desserts, creating rice-krispies treats, cheesecakes, cupcakes, and pies from scratch. Her attention to detail and skills at customization make her a sought-after wedding-cake designer, a role that sees her incorporating fresh flowers, ribbons, and the best man’s cummerbund into her designs.
