Considered the first and only southern inspired dessert company in Los Angeles, Southern Girl Desserts was founded in 2007 by co-owners Catarah Hampshire and Shoneji Robison. Known for their unique cupcakes earned notoriety by winning the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars in June, 2013. Today, Southern Girl Dessets is serving up authentic Southern hospitality and treats out of their L.A. bakeshop and, thankfully, shipping nationwide!

About The Food

Discover for yourself how the made-from-scratch Southern style of baking that Southern Girl Desserts has acquired is from the heart. As Southern girls, co-owners Catarah and Shoneji both grew up knowing that homemade desserts were the only way to go. Their hearty, buttery pound cakes are all made from scratch by hand; Nothing going into these cakes comes from a can or a box, and just one bite will prove it. Building on recipes passed down from generations before, these cakes define why they’re called pound cakes in the first place –they’re heavy! And you won’t be able to stop until you’re filled to the brim. And of course, there’s a cake for everyone, you get your pick from a variety of Southern tastes: Sweet Potato, Strawberry-Cheesecake, Red Velvet, Praline, Brownie pound cake, Rum pound cake…hungry yet?!

Meet The Owners

Co-founders Catarah Coleman and Shoneji Robison were both raised in Florida homes and both learned to bake from their grandmothers. They both studied at Florida A&M, but the magic wouldn’t happen until they would both end up in the greater LA area. After wanting to bring a piece of Southern culture to the West coast, Catarah put it all on the line to start Southern Girl Desserts in 2007. Just six months later Shoneji would join the team, and create the duo now known as the “Dessert Divas.” Together, the two would combine the knowledge passed down from their families to create something truly special. Now, ten years after opening, Southern Girl Desserts remains the only Southern-inspired dessert company in Los Angeles where every dessert on the menu has roots from the South.
