Over the weekend I had the pleasure of stopping by a dear friend’s bakery called, Cupcake Diva Girlz located in Dacula, Ga. I have to give you the backstory first lol. Owner and Baker Ramona Hampton and I go WAY back from when I first moved here to Atlanta. Ga and she had her first bakery right down the road from me. I stopped in one day and we both hit it off! Later on, she made me a strawberry two-tiered cake for my Anniversary of Talking with Tami/Birthday party and it was a huge hit! We have been friends ever since! We lost touch over the years, with both of us living very busy lives, her being a Pastor’s wife having a growing family and me moving & shaking around Atlanta and traveling so much. Those that have been long time readers of the blog might remember Ramona but yes, she reached out to me and we met up for lunch to catch up. We sat in the restaurant for hours showing each other pictures of our families and so much more! It was such a great lunch and we vowed to do better at staying in touch.
Ramona had closed her first bakery, restructured and then reopened her bakery and moved it to Dacula,Ga and that is where she has been for the last 6 years. She has went on to be the cover girl of Gwinnett Magazine and was awarded “Best Of” Gwinnett in 2016! I am so proud of her and was excited to stop in on Saturday to see the new shop, what she carries and so much more! Ramona has been a baker for well over 28 years and I don’t see her slowing down anytime soon. Everyone in the community loves her sweet treats! If you are ever in the area, please stop by to try and tell her I sent yah! Her delicious cupcakes, pound cakes, wedding cakes, specialty cakes and cheesecakes are too yummy for words! Check out a few pictures inside. xoxo
