What is Daisy Cakes?
Daisy Cakes is a dessert company known for their southern style and homemade touch. Based in South Carolina, each and every cake is made by hand, fresh to order, and is shipped all across the United States. The company currently offers four layer cakes and “Cake in a Jar” Minikins as well as gluten-free and vegan options. Some of their flavors include Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, South Carolina Peaches and Cream, and Chocolate & Marshmallow Fluff. A recipe book is additionally offered on their website for those interested in pursuing bakes of their own.
Who Owns Daisy Cakes?
Daisy Cakes was founded by South Carolina native Kim Nelson. Before starting her company, Kim received her bachelor’s degree in history from Wofford College. As a college student, she was an active member of Kappa Delta Sorority, participated in cheerleading, and frequently volunteered her time to charitable causes within the local community. Her volunteerism included working at the local soup kitchen and at an organization called Halter For Life, which provides horse therapy to individuals with disabilities.
Despite Kim’s wide array of interests and passions while a college student, she may not have initially envisioned a future career in business. Rather, the joy she received from making people happy neatly aligned with her family’s generational history of baking; and the popularity of her family’s recipes is what ultimately led to her founding her company, Daisy Cakes. Her goal from the beginning has been to authentically share her family’s southern style of desserts, dedication to farm-fresh ingredients, and love for rich, delicious, share-worthy cakes.
