OWNER & HEAD BAKER

It all started when I wanted to bake a cake for my wife's birthday. So, I called my spiritual mom Ora Lee Miller. I always felt like she made the best cake and I wanted to bake it for this very special occasion. Well, my mom promised to give me the recipe on one condition, I had to let her sample it when I baked it. Of course, I agreed. Well like a good son, I kept my promise and brought over the cake. She really put me through the test too. She let her husband, two daughters and son taste it. I was so nervous my pound cake was being critiqued by not just one person but five people. When I presented the cake to my wife, she was surprised that I baked the cake from scratch and not from a boxed cake mix. Ora Lee Miller's critique was that I did not follow her recipe. I thought, "Oh My God". She said you changed the recipe, this cake tastes better than mine and told me I could make a lot of money with my recipe.

My first thought was WOW, really. I started to bake cakes and just gave them to whoever wanted them. I got great reviews too. My spiritual mom found out about it and told me to charge for the cake. So, I did just that and people have really enjoyed by product, so much so that I birthed the business "The #1 Poundcake Man" servicing the taste for people all over the USA. I will never forget my spiritual mom, Ora Lee Miller, who is the reason that each cake is baked with "Ora Love".

CO-OWNER & ASSIST. HEAD BAKER

My joy of baking first began as child watching my father bake cakes really early in the morning and late at night. I remember being able to help my father put the cake in the pans and seeing the finished cake and how proud I was. One day, my dad asked me if I wanted to learn how to make the cake and I shouted YES! This was a moment I was waiting for! I was nervous and excited at the same time because I wanted dad's cake to come out perfect. Then, after mixing my first two cakes and they came out the exact same as father's I knew I could do it. Since then, I have become assistant head baker and co-owner of The #1 Poundcake Man. Having my dad as a business partner has been nothing short of an exciting and learning experience. I love being able to create new flavors and techniques all while honoring the legacy of my spiritual grandmother and father. 

Today, I am able to expand my reach by providing a sweet service to people across the world with elevated cakes and dessert tables for a variety of occasions from birthdays, weddings and more through Dixon's Decadence and when my father decides to retire, The #1 Poundcake Man will continue to grace your tables one cake at a time.
