Dondra Beckles 

Head baker and owner, Dondra Beckles, has always had a love for baking. She initially started by making coconut bread (sweet bread), a sweet Caribbean delicacy, and after receiving countless compliments she slowly expanded into cupcakes. She shared her cupcakes with colleagues and family all of whom were amazed at the taste and immaculate presentation. 


Her love for baking was further driven by the TV show ‘Cupcake Wars’. Dondra experimented with her cupcakes and as time went on she soon combined her recipes with intricate cake designs.


Initially, Dondra only saw her cupcakes as a hobby. That changed after she, along with a friend did a large order of cupcakes for an office function. This was Dondra’s first big order. In 2011, after she left her job in banking, Dondra decided to go into the cupcake business. She worked hard to build up a customer base and soon orders were piling in for birthdays, weddings and baby showers. Before she knew it Dondra was catering to all occasions and has made a name for herself when it comes to taste and creativity. To this date, she has participated in events such as, The World Kids Fair, The Barbados Manufacturers’ Exhibition (BMEX), Girlfriends Expo, and Animekon.
