Brides-to-be are always searching for new ways of doing old wedding traditions. Those who want to offer their guests something other than the usual wedding cake can take some inspiration from Southern Girl Desserts.
Two native Floridians, Catarah Hampshire and Shoneji Robison, started Southern Girl Desserts in Los Angeles almost three years ago, but they're already serving up scrumptious delights for the who's who of L.A. What sets them apart? They replace everyday reception desserts with southern favorites - such as red velvet cake, pineapple obsession, banana pudding and their signature sweet potato pie cupcakes - and make them elegant enough for a wedding.
Hampshire and Robison found themselves in the national spotlight last year after their red velvet cupcakes were served at the wedding of Essence Atkins and soon they will be shipping their creations nationwide.
