We had the good fortune of connecting with Violeta Witte and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Violeta, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My little one is the inspiration for my business. Every dessert I make is approved by her. Since her first birthday everyone has been pleased with my desserts. I enjoy baking and creating gluten free and keto baked goods.

What should our readers know about your business?
I started baking for local farmers markets a couple years ago. I’ve also been given the opportunity to bake for special events, weddings, showers and corporate parties. My products are gluten free and use the finest  natural, organic and plant based ingredients. I am proud to offer alternatives to my customers including sugar free desserts No business is easy but when you have the passion, conviction and love you can do anything.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them to some places for hiking, riding bikes in the parks and try my local favorite foods and of course the farmers markets.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I dedicate my work to my family for the support, cheering me up and encouraging me to continue in this journey. And grateful of  each of my sweet customers.
