11-year-old launches dessert business out of shed, shares the secret recipe to success
11-year-old launches dessert business out of her parents’ driveway
Isla Davis and her mother Alyson Davis joined ‘Mornings with Maria’ to discuss how she started her dessert business out of a shed at only 10-years-old.
At only 10-years-old, Isla Davis turned her passion for baking into a full-scale business by launching "Isla’s Divine Desserts," a small dessert business operating out of a shed on her parent's property.
The unprecedented success of Isla's business prompted her mother Alyson to quit her job and become her full-time business partner, an entrepreneurial crossroad that she concluded was "best to come together."
"I had the idea to start my own business, and I had always seen like, 'Kids Baking Championship.' I knew that a lot of them had their own business and I wanted to be just like that," baking entrepreneur Isla Davis said on ‘Mornings with Maria,’ having celebrated her 11th birthday by joining host Maria Bartiromo Wednesday morning.

Isla found inspiration to turn her passion into profit through the hit Broadway musical, "The Waitress," which tells the story of a small-town baker who turned her dream into a reality.
After the idea for a self-sought baking business was hatched, Isla's mother set up a table at the end of the driveway with an umbrella, and the rest was history.
