Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, raised in the Bay Area, a graduate of Hayward High School in Hayward, California; Shontel moved to Atlanta in 2007. Her obsession for cake pops began in 2012, however it wasn’t until 2016 that she really knew this was something she wanted to do full time.
I was able to visit Shontel at her home to do an interview. She greeted me with a fresh fruit plate, yummy cocktails and an assortment of cake pops. YUM!
I would say she definitely made me feel at home and as you will see in the video, after a few drinks, I got real comfortable! That pomegranate cocktail she made was SO good.
During the interview as we laugh and I eat, you will get to know fun loving, high spirited Shontel as I know her. She will give you insight as to what it is like transistioning from the normal 9 – 5, customer service based, sit inside a cubicle type job to running her own cake pop business. Learn how she got started and how her faith, passion and love for her craft keeps her going.
