We had the good fortune of connecting with Ebony Butler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ebony, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I took a big race going full force with the Cake business. I left a six-figure paying job to open up my own bakery in 2019 right at the strike of Covid. In the beginning I was a little discouraged because it seemed like maybe that wasn’t the right move to make at the time, but I just took a risk and went all in. It was the best choice I’ve ever made in my life and I never look back.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I think was sets me apart from others is that I stay in my only. I like to create by adding the customers character to my cake designs. I don’t get too much into fondant just because it’s not something that I enjoy. I had a lot of finding pieces but I think that I can bring more personality to the cake without it. My goal is to make the cake taste Just as amazing as it looks. I built my brain from the ground since 2010 and I make sure my worth ethic does everything to protect it.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love my friends come and visit because it gives me a chance just to get out more. I’m a homebody so I don’t do too much hanging out. However I am a foodie so my first that would be breakfast at Barney’s. For lunch we will probably head up maybe a Mexican restaurant or somewhere with some good seafood, I love the aquarium so I will take them to the aquarium. And then dinner would be at home I will cook a nice dinner for them something I know that they like and dessert of course would be my famous cups of junk.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Being new to Atlanta it was kind a hard to get my name out there. A lot of customers from New Jersey were recommending me word-of-mouth to friends and family which was awesome. However Yandy Smith – Harris from love and hip-hop opened the door for me by having one of the biggest pop-up shops for vendors in Atlanta and That gave me the opportunity to share my dessert with people from all over Atlanta.
