Since I was a little girl, I always admired art - of any kind. Both of my parents were talented artists, but I was born to be a little different. I am a quiet soul who appreciates uniqueness, independence, adventure, and taking risks. 

I lean more toward passionate abstract styles and have found my outlet of creativity in creating quality tasting desserts with my heart stroked into their design. I love variety, which is why I dance at the opportunity to create overwhelming dessert tables! 

Art is meant to translate a deep emotion or movement. Through my business and creativity, it is my hope that I can reflect a passionate emotion and motivation to fight against the dark and painful world of Human Sex Trafficking. I will not just have another bakery, I will put every effort into translating the value, worth, and beauty of every soul through the creation of gourmet desserts and cakes. But that's not all - I aim to create a way to support organizations that rescue and restore victims. 

Join me in the movement against human trafficking! Black Velvet Desserts has collaborated with Lovely Arrows Events & Designs to create "The Black Arrow Project". We are creating luxurious and cause worthy events to support and benefit a variety of local organizations that help victims of human trafficking.  Find out more on Facebook.

What Our Clients Think

Kind Words

Our clients love the simply beautiful and edgy style of our desserts. And they constantly rave about how delicious they are!   

Look below at some of our testimonials:

"Black Velvet Desserts is the 'Jeni’s of cakes'!!!

They offer so many exotic flavors that will blow your mind (Lavender + Lemon, Earl Grey + Hibiscus, etc). These are creative/high quality cakes. My birthday cake from Black Velvet Desserts was so amazing and we can’t wait for them to make our wedding cake this October! ... And Missy has been so kind to us throughout the process" -- Kari

 "These aren’t just desserts, they’re masterpieces! Each pastry is carefully sculpted from scratch and almost looks too good to eat, but once you start eating, you won’t stop! Black Velvet Desserts has achieved a delicate balance of richness while still being light and fluffy. Their desserts are great for weddings or corporate parties and are an excellent alternative to big, old school cakes. I highly recommend the Pistachio Tart with Orange Curd and Pomegranate Gelee as well as the Almond Dacquoise Torte with Cafe Mocha Butter Cream. I can’t wait to have these desserts again!"  --Duncan

"Delicious and equally beautiful cake. Prompt and friendly service. No complaints. Very highly recommend!!" --Edelyn 

" I had my first, but certainly not last, experience with Missy Burns and Black Velvet Desserts. I contacted Missy for my daughter's birthday. {She} had written about her love for these desserts so I decided to surprise her.  I called on very short notice. Missy was so helpful and {my daughter} loved the dessert as she always has.I will certainly use Black Velvet Desserts again, maybe even sample the desserts  myself and I recommend Missy and this company to all.

Thanks again" --Alan
