The Tenacious Tart

Born and raised in South Carolina, I have been playing with food since the 1st grade.

Fast forward, I enrolled in the Pastry Arts program at Delgado College in New Orleans, Louisiana.

After graduating in 2013, I became the pastry chef for Apolline the same year. After spending 5 years there, it was time to move back.

I came home to Charleston and started selling my cakes and desserts at a local farmers market on James Island. I am a "bootstrap", female owned business. I saved up $300 from the sales and started The Tenacious Tart.

 

I work from my in-home cake studio, on James Island. I offer artisan wedding cakes, celebration cakes, and wedding desserts. I incorporate local, organic ingredients whenever possible. I have been featured twice in Post & Courier for my business, The Tenacious Tart, and been recognized as a local female chef. 

Sunday evenings are reserved for family and our weekly meal at my mother's house. And yes, I usually bring dessert.
