BHL: Success Is The New Black -- In this episode, Black Hollywood Live hosts Ashida Onrae and Tara Johnson welcome Catarah Hampshire and Shoneji Robison to discuss their rise with Southern Girl Desserts and more.
In 2007 when the company was founded, there were no dessert companies dedicated to desserts made popular in the south and as a new comer to Los Angeles.
Co-owner Catarah Hampshire noticed the people she encountered didn’t have the traditional southern mannerisms she was used to. Those two things prompted her motivation to create a dessert company that reflected the hospitality she grew to know and love and desserts that could only be made by the hands of true southern girls.
In early 2008, just six months after Southern Girl was founded, co-owner Shoneji Robison joined the team instantly creating the duo, now known as the “Dessert Divas”.
You won’t find wild and crazy flavors here; yet you’ll discover that the made from scratch southern style of baking that Southern Girl Desserts has acquired is from the heart. As southern girls Catarah and Shoneji both grew up knowing that homemade desserts were the only way to go. They may not have culinary degrees, but were taught by the best and it’s reflected in every bite.
Now you can experience the southern desserts in Los Angeles. Southern Girl Desserts offers cupcakes, cakes, pies, sweet tea and more. Whether you just have a sweet tooth or are in need of a bridal cake, let Southern Girl Desserts give you a taste of the south.
All of this and more on the March 26th, 2017 edition of Success Is The New Black!
