Sweet Success – Cakes by Elise

July 26, 2022

Elise Daniels has always enjoyed baking. Cupcakes, cookies, and layered and sheet cakes have fueled a heartfelt passion for her since high school. Selling her sweet creations out of her home started over 12 years ago, right after graduation. She tried working for another bakery company, but finding herself unsatisfied, went out on her own in 2016.

Starting Her Own Cake Business

Growing up in the Gardendale area, she quickly realized she wanted her own company. She wanted to put in her own style and charm and provide the quality that she felt customers deserved. 

Looking towards a smaller venue, she opened up Cakes by Elise in 2016, at 2480 Mount Olive Road, in Mount Olive. The smaller community suited her laid-back manner and made it easier to interact one-on-one with her clientele.

While other companies struggled during the pandemic, Elise discovered her customers still needed reasons to celebrate. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and get-togethers required cake.

 Her pick-up-only business stayed busy.

Sweet Tooth Heaven

Numerous positive reviews have made this shop the place to pick for your next cake purchase. Her focus on custom cake orders is legendary.

It’s a full-service bakery not only offering birthday cakes but also all occasion cakes, cupcakes, and wedding cakes. They are available daily. Give her a call and discuss what you need and be amazed at her suggestions: 205-565-8044

Next month, in August, Elise has her annual ½ price cupcake sale that you do not want to miss.  

We at the NJP hope to see you there.
