Angela Price started her mail order cake company, The Black Cake Company (formerly Caribbean Cake Connoisseurs) in 1987 by selling Black Cakes.
A native of Barbados, Angela moved to the United States in 1972 and wanted to share the rich cultural heritage surrounding traditional fruit cake from the Caribbean region. This passion led to creating and mailing catalogs and attending Black Expos to share the products with the North American region. This gourmet product is known as Black Cake, Great Cake, Christmas pudding and always served as wedding cake.
Angela’s cakes have been sold worldwide since the inception. With the advent of the Internet, the Company started selling online in 1996. Currently sold through the Company’s own website (www.blackcake.com or www.rumcake.com) and through Amazon, the cake offerings have grown to include not only Black Cake but Rum Cakes, Dundee cakes, German Chocolate cakes and Coconut Bread.
Understanding the need to maintain self-determination and to go where God is leading, Angela continues to build the Black Cake Company brand, which focuses on being consistent and offering quality service to new and long term customers. Giving back and a sense of community continues to drive this entrepreneur who seeks to fulfill God’s purpose for her life while inspiring others. Learn more at www.blackcake.com.
