Today we’d like to introduce you to DeLisa Hall.
DeLisa, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My grandmother taught me how to bake from scratch at the age of 13. I never dreamed I would have a cake business. After being laid off from the Oil & Gas industry in 2015, I started creating custom treats. At first, it was for family and close friends, then people started inquiring and asking to place orders, so the business began. In 2017, I ventured out and started creating custom cakes. I took classes from several bakers and started following my cake mentor, Porsha Kimble better known as Your Cake Diva. Today, DivaGlam Cakes & Treats offers great tasting and beautiful custom cakes for all occasions and also creates custom dessert tables for events. I use my love for decorating to create dessert tables fit for the customer’s needs and budget.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
As with any startup business, there are always bumps along the way. Advertising and putting your business on the map can be a major struggle. In the city of Houston, there are so many gifted and talented treatmakers and custom bakers; the competition is unbelievable sometimes.
Please tell us about your business.
My business specializes in custom cakes & cupcakes created for all occasions. My company also specializes in custom Sweets Table setups, which includes the cake and a variety of treats/desserts designed for the customer’s event. What I’m most proud of in this company is my ability to challenge myself and allow my customers to challenge me when it comes to custom designs that are new to me. The DivaGlam specialty buttercream sets us apart from others.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing. Every mishap, mistake or defeat has been a learning experience for me. I wouldn’t trade these experiences for anything else in this world. Now I’m able to mentor others.
