CENTER POINT — A new business owner is serving up sweet treats around the area and her start came at a time that many were stuck at home.
On Saturday, July 24, Angela Wilson set up shop in front of Magnolia Elementary School, in Trussville. to advertise and sell Angela’s Sweet Cravings.
Wilson, of Center Point, said she garnered the inspiration to start the business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’ve been baking pretty much for years and I started out baking for family and friends and I decided with the pandemic going on, that I wanted to find me something to do that I’m passionate about”, said Wilson.
Wilson started advertising Angela’s Sweet Cravings online with several items such as her dessert cups which she said customers seemed to love. It wasn’t long before she realized she could expand her menu.
“I started adding more things like my pound cake, my signature red velvet cakes and I got a line of cookies that I do,” said Wilson. “I started out with pecan chocolate chip, plain chocolate chip and peanut butter.”
Customers craved Angela’s cookies so much that she came out with additional flavors such as her butter pecan, toffee coconut with a strawberry cookie, and her lemon delight key lime cookie. Wilson said she is also famous for her peach cobbler.
The business started in July of 2020 and has been featured in over 10 locations around the city of Birmingham.
Wilson plans to expand the food business by the end of August 2021, by going mobile.
“I’m in the process of having my own food trailer so I can be mobile, so I can be able to go to different areas and have everyone to have that sweet cravings from Angela Sweet Cravings,” said Wilson.
