Meet Stephanie Gibson
When I was a child, I used to do all the baking in our house. I started off with box cake mixes, homemade cinnamon rolls, as well as chocolate chip cookies from scratch, my all-time personal FAVE!
I used to rummage the pages of my mom’s Betty Crocker cookbook looking at all the pictures, especially the dessert section, and gaining knowledge from all the recipes. I turned into a bit of a dessert nerd! What I also loved about baking was educating myself on the origin of my favorite desserts. Something that is a great conversation starter.
At that time, I was also obsessed with the fashion industry and becoming a fashion designer. Fast forward many years later, I realized that my passion wasn’t for fashion, but for baking. It’s been a part of me my entire life and I hadn’t realized it.
As a grown-up, I decided to tackle my mom’s famous cream cheese pound cake from scratch, which she passed down. When my friends tasted the cake, I knew I was on to something. They had crumb fights!
Now that I’m free of my past, I have decided to live my REAL passion. I’d like to introduce you to Love, London Sweets, named for my daughter, London, based out of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY.
Not only is baking what I love to do, it is also my way of teaching my daughter about being self-sufficient, owning her own business, and making her own way from her own efforts.
This bakery is a love lesson for both of us and I hope to be an example to her and all the little girls out there whipping up delicious treats in their kitchens!
Thank you for visiting!
