Jessica Carver, a mother of four, Carver found her passion for baking when decorating cakes for her children. The oldest is now 17. "So I started with my kid's birthday cakes and then friends asked, 'Why don't you do mine?' And it kind of blossomed from there," Carver said. She has made dozens of cakes, including a mix Trolls-themed cake and a giant Belle cake for her youngest daughter, Layla. "They were usually extravagant because the kids think I'm cake boss," Carver said. "They've had a lot of everything. Girly, princess things, sports things."Carver was devastated when her plans to open a bakery didn't come to fruition three years ago, but the challenge has encouraged her to work even harder."It's been a whirlwind," she said, only a few days after the grand opening. "It's exciting and exhausting. We've been selling out daily." Sweet Dreams Bakery sells donuts, cake pops, cookies, cupcakes and celebration cakes on a daily basis. The shop is open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to noon Saturdays. Items have been selling out before closing, Carver advised.
