Terry Nelson, Virginia Beach, Email, (757) 689-4642
Born into a large Italian family, Terry practically grew up in the kitchen. Whenever her friends tasted her baked goods, they craved more and wanted to buy them to give as gifts. In 2007, Terry decided to select a few of her cakes and offer them for public purchase. The requests quickly increased and that was the beginning of Dessert Classics. In 2009 her cakes were selected for the “Virginia’s Finest” award, placing Dessert Classics among the best of the best.
Terry’s specialty is her rum cake! She hand drip coats the cake with her butter rum glaze, using Bacardi select dark rum while it is still warm. Then she tops with fresh toasted pecans. Terry also creates very popular beautiful handmade sugar art flowers to adorn your special affairs: Daffodils, Roses, Anemones and Daisies, etc. They all come in different sizes and colors to match your next event. Terry loves seeing her sugar art used for special occasions in so many places!
