The TV show Shark Tank has given various entrepreneurs a chance to take their small business or idea to the next level. In season two of the show, baker Kim Daisy made a deal with real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran for a $50,000 investment. A South Carolina native, Ms. Daisy’s cakes have received national attention since being on Shark Tank.
Though partnering with Barbara Corcoran and being on a popular TV show helped her business, Ms. Daisy met with some challenges before greater success came calling and the order volume of cakes increased beyond anything she could have ever imagined.
It all started back in the early 1970s when Kim’s mother started making chocolate cakes and selling them one at a time. More than 40 years later, Daisy Cakes will do over two million dollars in sales this year. With the holidays getting into full gear, the cake queen, as she calls herself, tells us why cake is the ultimate dessert.
