We had the good fortune of connecting with Candace Dickard and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Candace, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk, the definition of owning a small business. I always ask myself, if I jump off this cliff, is the fall worth the risk? There are so many things in life that we would never experience without risk! So many opportunities come from risk being taken and whether the outcome positive or negative, we have to take them on with full force. My career and business wouldn’t exist without take a small step into risk! Success can ultimately only comw from great risk! 

What should our readers know about your business?
Darb Cake Designs was born out of necessity as many small business’ are. I wanted to create a cake design business that could offer both high end show stopper cakes as well as simple classic designs. Along with a price point that was accessible to most couples, our business is focused on creating a memorable and delicious design for peoples special occasions. While 2020 has not been easy in any way for anyone it has allowed us to take a step back and remind ourselves why do what we do… for the moments people share with one another. We all need the love of others, and if we are just a small puzzle piece for someone’s special day that is incredibly fulfilling.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Denver is so dynamic and growing every day. I always have a list of places to go qhen people come visit: Boulder, Pearl Street, SALT…their hamburger is hands down the best Denver Art Muesem Any hike in the area is prime against the mountains

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Jordan, my husband, is my biggest asset. He encouraged me without hesitation to start a business with the little knowledge I had. Even as we have grown he has pushed me to grow, adapt, and push into something greater than we already are.
