Meet DeWania Wilson of Diva-licious Cupcake Boutique
My passion for designing started as a young girl. I was always in fashion shows and trying to recreate all the outfits I had, more bling the merrier. From 2002 to 2008, my mother and I began decorating and staging homes, we got so good at it that more people would book us for random events. Random events turned into us becoming wedding coordinators. I figured if I can decorate a home and do weddings, I can take a chance at baking and decorating beautiful cakes.One day I decided to take the Wilton’s cake decorating class in 2007 at my local Michael’s . I feel so in love with the art and hobby, that I would just get lost in it. I began watching YouTube and other cooking shows to get more familiar with different techniques on how to construct a cake properly successfully. As I start progressing, I start baking for family and friends for parties and holiday functions. Everyone was in love with my decor and the flavor of my cakes I became an instant hit. My life as a hobby baker became an instant reality when I started my own business in 2008. I am who I am today because I had a dream and I believed. I give all honor to God and all my biggest supporters.
Throughout this journey, I have had struggles with myself but quickly gained my confidence back as I started to gain more faith. I never thought that I would make it this far as a business owner. I thought baking would be just a hobby…now it’s my passion. I am thankful to God that I moved passed all the adversities and challenges, blessings from here on out. I take nothing for my journey. I will not complain, I’m grateful and appreciative. Always believe in yourself and keep it moving no matter the situation!

I feel I have completed so many accomplishments with my business. I have paid off old debt and purchased big ticket items to make my business more successful. I believe with God’s help, I have set my goals and accomplished them as a self made .business owner. Now my focus is to teach and mentor others that have the same passion and would like to become business owners as I once did. To me, that is what make makes a success story when you have accomplished your goals and turn around and help someone else with theirs.
