Darnel's Cakes and Birdie's Biscuits are serving up sweet and savory baked goods in honor of lost loved ones. #BeLocalish

Darnel's Cakes and Birdie's Biscuits were both named after beloved family members.

Kyle Cuffie-Scott's cousin, Darnel, passed away from complications of the AIDS virus. So his baked goods company, Darnel's Cakes, is named in his honor and works to raise awareness of HIV-AIDS.

Jeffery Presley's great grandmother's nickname was Birdie, and she was known for her biscuits.

So he recreated her recipe and started Birdie's Biscuits.

Both baker-chefs are graduates of culinary schools, and both continue to sell their baked goods locally through the COVID-19 crisis.
