Conversations with Kandies Bailey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kandies Bailey.

Hi Kandies, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start, maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I’m Kandies Bailey, I own KB’S SWEETS LLC CustomDesserts, Coffee and Cupcake Boutique. KB’S SWEETS is a mobile business specializing in cupcakes. Cakes, Chocolate Covered Treats and Boss Kandy Pudding, are available. I vend several times a month at local Pop Up Shops. I started my own coffee brand in February 2021, KB’S SWEETS COFFEE.

There’s three blends Pretty Girls (hazelnut), Boss Kandy (dark roast) Kool Kupkakes (medium-dark roast) coffee is available for shipping and local pick-up. I had the desire to bake and decorate cakes for years before I started. I would purchase birthday cakes and wonder how it was done. I started baking about ten years ago and decided to turn my love for baking into a business in 2018. I love being an entrepreneur and networking with other entrepreneurs. If you have the desire to start your own business, go for it! I wanted to decorate cakes for years before I started. I now wonder why I waited so long. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It hasn’t been a smooth road. I faced challenges such as underpricing desserts, running out of supplies and not being able to accept orders due to being booked. Other challenges I have faced are time management and creating decoration ideas.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
KBS SWEETS specializes in cupcakes. I’m most proud of the growth of my business. I am most known for cupcakes. KB’S SWEETS is set apart from other businesses because I have my own coffee brand.

If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
I have always been creative and I have a lively personality. I love listening to music, reading and watching documentaries.
