I grew up in Hauppauge, NY, then married and moved to Lake Grove. I am a stay at home mom of three little girls, ages 10, 8, 5. I am a Girl Scout leader of three troops and I am also PTA President at their elementary school.
I love to read and go to the beach. We spend most of the summer at the ocean, its my favorite place to be. My biggest joy is making my children happy!
When & how did you become a cake pop maker?
I experimented with cake pops last April for my daughter’s communion. Some of my guests raved and wanted me to make them for their parties. That made me think about what I wanted to do with my time now that my youngest daughter was beginning full-time school in September. I thought about my interests and started to think about my “loves”. I love my children, being involved in their activities, planning their parties and baking!! I also love business, organization, paperwork and having something that is my own.
So, I took all my passions and literally “rolled” them into a new and exciting business. After doing some research online, I was ready to jump into the exciting world of cake pops! KC Bakes & I have a friend in common, Gigi. She’s the one that turned me one to KC Bakes! I watched all their YouTube tutorials when I first started.
Do you bake as your full-time job?
No, but it definitely is starting to become full-time.
How did you come up with your business name?
I played off my own name “D”enise and came up with D’s Licious Pop Shoppe. The pops are delicious!
What inspires you in your baking; how do you come up with original ideas?
I always ask my customers what they would like to see in a cake pop. They are my target audience.
What are some of your favorite cake pops that you have made?

Practice and patience, patience, patience.

D’s Licious is strictly a pop shoppe!
