Hi! I'm Renita
I'm the owner of Essie’s Delights LLC, AKA “Rè The Flavor Queen” of combinations.
My passion for baking and cooking came from watching my grandmother, Essie Mae, cook at home. I lived in Fayetteville, NC, and loved to help cook and serve dinners and desserts in the kitchen at Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church. Serving dinners and tasty desserts brought joy to my heart for baking and feeding others.

How It All Began
The first dessert I ever baked was a Sprite Pound Cake, which was inspired by the movie “Soul Food” DVD case! That Pound Cake started my journey. From that point on, I cooked and shared desserts with co-workers, friends, and family.
I enjoyed flavors and began to experiment with them. I branched out and took classes to expand my knowledge. I started baking Pies and Cheesecakes with all kinds of flavor combinations. That evolved into Cakes and Cupcakes.
All the while, knowing that baking is my secret place, my place of refuge, and a slice of peace. From that Pound Cake, the love turned into Cakes, Cupcakes, Cheesecakes, Cookies, Sweet Potato Pies, and all types of Sweet Delights. What started as a hobby is now a lifelong dream coming true.
I want everyone to taste the love and feel the authenticity put into every dessert custom created with YOU in mind.
