Congratulations to VEDC client, Abby Jimenez for winning Cupcake Wars on the Food Network!

“The response has been amazing! Nadia Cakes has been busier than ever before,” explained Abby. “If it wasn’t for VEDC, we wouldn’t have been able to participate in the show. Winning was definitely worth the investment.”

Abby and Carlos Jimenez own Nadia Cakes which is located at 39604 10th Street West in Palmdale, CA. The small bakery specializes in custom cakes and cupcakes baked fresh daily. With a staff of 12 employees, they offer over 100 flavors that are rotated every day, including the Food Network Fan Favorite – Triple Berry Cheesecake Cupcakes with Sour Cream Glaze and Graham Cracker Crust!

Abby and Carlos came to VEDC looking for help in consolidating their debt after using personal credit cards to pay for tenant improvements at their Palmdale storefront. “We wouldn’t have been able to do any of this without VEDC,” said Carlos Jimenez. “With their help we were able to focus on moving forward and expanding our business. We have created 6 new jobs and are planning to open a second location.”
