Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT DLicious Sweets Bakery by Daniela!
Three questions with Daniela Nero, founder of DLicious Sweets Bakery by Daniela.
Why did you start your business?
I have loved baking since I was a little girl. After taking many baking classes and getting raving reviews from friends & family, I decided to make my dream a reality and started DLicious Sweets Bakery. I bring love, creativity, my Brazilian flare, and unique gourmet recipes to each dessert I create.
Specializing in buttercream cakes for every celebration, and also offering cupcakes, cake pops, macaroons, and gift boxes - filled with fresh flowers and baked goods, I believe that every cake is a piece of art, and love is my secret ingredient.
"I don’t believe I just make and sell cakes - I see my cakes as an expression of love. I deliver feelings, sweets for a special moment and celebration - I believe I deliver love in each cake I create.”
What is your best selling product/service?
Vanilla Cake with my Gourmet Brigadeiro Truffle and a drizzle of Lemon Curd is an all-time favorite cake combination. And my OH Sweet Boxes are a huge success - combining my favorite sweets and beautiful flowers - they make the perfect gift!
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
With social distancing and small holiday gatherings as our reality, I had to create a brand new menu of mini - individual- desserts, and I must admit I am loving them! Making tiny pieces of sweets has been a new and fun experience, and delivering them to my clients has been a joy.
