Hi! I’m Kyrsten Willits, the owner of Kyrsten’s Sweet Designs!
The “sweets” business is the only business I’ve ever known. I’ve been decorating cakes professionally for close to 10 years!
I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI with my Bachelor’s degree in Baking & Pastry Arts. During and after college, I worked at a handful of small bakeries and cake shops where I quickly discovered my knack for the fine details of cake artistry.
In 2010, I married my best friend :)
And soon after, we moved to Pennsylvania!
In April 2013 I started my own business – Kyrsten’s Sweet Designs!
I have a fully licensed and insured kitchen and run the business from my home in Harrisburg, PA. I do all of the baking, building, decorating and delivering myself and only take on a few orders each weekend. This way I can guarantee: 1) Freshness – I bake my cakes fresh every week from scratch, and 2) Quality – I manage my time so that every cake gets the appropriate amount of attention.
I believe that a cake’s flavor is just as important as it’s appearance.
I thoroughly enjoy what I do and I believe that if you love what you do, that joy overflows into your work :-)
1 Peter 4:8-11 – “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms… If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised.”
I believe my “gift” is the gift of a smile. Every event and every customer is different, but the end result always has the same goal – the perfect cake that will put a smile on everyone’s face :-)
*God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him. We have been called to work with excellence, integrity, and diligence, and our careers are opportunities to be on mission for Christ in the marketplace. God gives us great potential for impact on our families, churches, communities and the world through the blessing of our work* – J.D. Greear
