About the Business!

I graduated culinary school in New Orleans and came back to James Island SC to help with family.

#3 Cakes & More by Dom - Sumter, SC

We're Interviewing: Dominique, Owner

About the Business!

Cakes & More by Dom, LLC is a home-based bakery that specializes in special occasion and wedding cakes/cupcakes. I started out doing cakes as a side business while working full time but soon my clientele grew, which pushed me to pursue cakes full time. So, in March of 2016, I quit my kitchen manager position at Chili’s and made my cake business legit.


What are your most favorite cake and icing flavors?

My personal favorite is Oreo cake with Oreo buttercream. It is simply perfect! I would have to say that Red Velvet is a customer favorite.


How big of cakes can you create?

The tallest cake I have ever created was a 3-tier double barrel cake. As I was stacking the cake, I said to myself, “Dominique, what were you thinking?” It was such a heavy cake, I stacked it before delivery, which made for a slow and stressful drive, but we got it there and the bride and groom loved it. That alone makes all the stress worth it.


Do you deliver?

I do deliver, my service areas are mainly Sumter, and surrounding areas, however I also deliver to areas outside of Sumter, like Columbia, Manning, Charleston, etc.


Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

Yes, we offer our signature cakes (a list can be found on our website), dessert tables, bake sales, and cake classes.



What can you tell me about getting started?

To get started you would fill out a wedding inquiry form. This basically gives me all the basic details like date, time, location, etc. I do offer cake tastings/consults. Its $40. This is a 45 min time slot, along with your choice of 3 cake flavors for 2 people to taste. At the consult we will go over the inspiration pictures sent and prices and decide on a cake design and iron out all the details.

#4 Kellybake Sweets - Duncan, SC

We're Interviewing: Kelly, Owner

About the Business!

I’m a small licensed and insured cottage law home bakery – everything I do is custom made to order. It was born out of a bad bout of PPD. I needed an outlet and so my new hobby turned into my baby and then turned into my business. I pride myself into creating beautiful pieces where classic flavors meet abstract art and texture. I love working with fresh flowers and geometric and marbled designs. I believe my work is modern but with a feminine and rustic touch.


What are your most favorite cake and icing flavors?

My personal favorite cake is my pumpkin spice latte cake. Even my chocolate-addicted family love it. It has a subtle pumpkin bite that is truly complemented by the warm cinnamon, nutmeg and clove flavors. It is best eaten with a classic vanilla bean buttercream.


And my classic vanilla bean buttercream is a true popular flavor. It is a hybrid of swiss meringue and American buttercream which truly makes Kellybake Sweets stand out from others. It is a beautifully silky and marshmallow-like frosting. The vanilla beans add a touch of sweetness that is not overpowering. That goes really well with my classic fudgy and moist chocolate cake, which is my most popular and most requested cake flavor.


How big of cakes can you create?

I have made large 4 tier cakes and actually have a great 3D one coming up soon. Large cakes are beautiful and such a statement. Small cakes can have the same effect, too. Just because the height isn’t there, the style needs to be omitted. No way! A beautiful 6” cake can also have the beautiful marbling, the floral arrangements that a bigger cake can have.


Do you deliver?

I absolutely deliver and highly recommend delivering tiered cakes. (I have traveled up to 4 hours away! However, that was for a special customer – my MIL and FIL’s anniversary). I delivery up to 2 hours away from me in Richland county (delivery fee applied).


Do you offer anything besides wedding cakes?

Other than wedding cakes, what does set me apart is that I also specialize in custom sugar cookies. I started my business with sugar cookies and royal icing. If you haven’t seen my pictures, you have to log on to IG or FB to see. You’ll see most cookers doing sets, like 3 designs or 4 designs. I really go above and beyond and do up to 10-12 different designs in a dozen sugar cookies. It is what gives me the “OOMPH” factor! I also do many cakes and cookies for other celebrations, like showers and birthdays.



What can you tell me about getting started?

Getting started: Due to covid and restrictions, I do not offer sit down wedding tasting appointments. What I do offer are wedding tasting boxes. The brides choose 3 flavors and buttercream for a fee. If they book with me, then it is deducted from the total amount. Brides are more than welcome to follow my social media as well as my website.

I have dedicated 14 years of full time service to perfecting my abilities as a professional wedding cake baker and designer. Diligent hard work learning to do all kinds of characters and intricate designs. I’m always willing to learn more.

What can you tell me about getting started?

I advise my potential clients to plan a meeting with me along with ideas about their general likes and dislikes. I am very flexible with meeting dates & times. At the meeting I will learn about attributes that make them unique individuals so we can arrive at a dream design that represents their true love for each other. (The couple will have a chance to taste several flavors of cake to help them make a decision on the flavor). The process will be fun! Even if they are unsure about what they want, they can rest easy knowing that I have unique insight. I will guide them to their perfect wedding cake flavor, texture and design.
