Slimmy's Sweet Treats

Daisy Awasum

One of the last times I visited Baltimore, I had the opportunity to collaborate with new small business, Slimmy's Sweet Treats. Though I styled & photographed, and haven't actually tasted any of the incredibly delicious looking treats, I did see her breakdown homemade snickerdoodles over a homemade cheesecake and I think that speaks to how much she cares about her work.

Beyond caring about the actual cakes, I was compelled to reach out to the owner, Jade, because I love the work she's doing. She brought her passion for community welfare as a social worker into the kitchen. Even as a new entrepreneur, she's used her platform to raise awareness and provided food for populations experiencing homelessness in Baltimore.
