Shopping in Detroit: Sweets Divine and Just Brunch Catering

The holidays are coming and it's time to get some sweet-tasting desserts--but pie again? Good News! Right here in Detroit there are two sisters are offering something different--red velvet cheesecake! Danyell Gilliam and Mechelle White own Sweets Divine and Just Brunch Catering which they run from a kitchen in downtown Detroit. They have a growing client list that includes cafes and catering gigs. In addition to the cheesecake topped with red chocolate curls, they also have available on their 50+-item menu chocolate brownies, peach cobbler, and banana pudding cheesecakes.

Danyell and Mechelle left their longtime jobs in an auto plant to start their bakery, and although they have had the usual ups and downs of small business owners, they are pursuing their dream. The sisters, who admit they should have started with a business plan but didn't, still have five-year growth that includes opening a bakery downtown and one in the suburbs, selling their cheescakes in grocery stores, and having cooking classes for children.



Sweets Divine and Just Brunch Catering can be reached at 313-422-5547.
For a menu, send an e-mail to sweets nbrunch@gmail.com. Phone orders are accepted;
cheesecakes range from $18 to $45.
