A 30-year-old longtime Kennett Square resident is getting her just desserts. Deisy’s Cake Shop has been running since March of 2020, but despite the shutdowns, Deisy Tapia took a creative pivot to keep her business afloat, writes Jen Samuel for The Daily Local News.

By offering baking kits to-go and curbside pickup, Tapia was able to keep her bakeshop flourishing. Now, her entrepreneurship has paid off, and long lines fill the Kennett Square cake shop. This wasn’t the first brick and mortar location.  

In fact, Tapia’s family opened Panaderia Estrella in West Grove in 2010. But the business was so popular that she needed more space to sell her delectable baked goods. 

The most popular items at Deisy’s Cake Shop are tres leches, chocolate chip raspberry, and conchas sweet bread.  

Tapia moved from Pachuquilla, Mexico to Kennett Square at the age of three, but has always called Chester County home. Her culinary arts teachers at Kennett High School pursued her to follow her dreams. Tapia says that she wants to teach others in the future.
