I am Kayisha Thompson from Brooklyn, NY Cake Executive Officer of De L’or Cakery. My clients include Neiman Marcus, the CEO of Cocoa Grinder, and Curvycon. My award winning products range from gourmet liquor infused custom cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, and cakes with premium ingredients. Our best-selling flavors are wicked dark chocolate and bourbon caramel. De L’or Cakery is your premier cake caterer offering the crème de la crème of gourmet cakes.
In 2013 my past employer wrongfully terminated me as their business wasn’t working out and mine was. One week after my termination I won a $5,000.00 scholarship competing in the Count Me In Urban Rebound Program. This is the birth of my dream a fellowship sponsored by De L’or Cakery.
In New York City, there are over 25, 000 youth currently in the foster care system. Of that number only 6% earn a 2 or 4 year degree by the age of 24. Our fellowship program would offer scholarships to those teens with a strong desire to advance their skillset in the area of Sugar Artistry. Scholarship recipients would learn basic and advanced cake designing techniques. De l’or Cakery has a social commitment to youth in the foster care system. The goal of the program is to improve the rate of entry of success for foster youth entering into post-secondary education.
With your support, we will launch our program in a studio in New York City. Funding will support our youth with coursework materials, supplies, uniforms, transportation fees, meals, and their own cake decorating tool set. You can change the life of a youth in the foster care system what’s stopping you?
