Hidden Gems: Irving

Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series.  Check out some of Irving ’s gems below.

Most people that know me, know me as “The Cake Pop Lady”. I started out in 2014 making cake pops and I created a business that created custom cake pop treats for all types of venues. I made a name for myself after becoming the vendor for charitable events and before I knew it. Read more>>
