About the Dream


Black Velvet Desserts was established in May of 2017 by Missy Burns with the help of her friend Lauren. Missy’s desire is to create a business based on quality, professionalism, and elegance. Her desserts reflect her creative heart through unique taste and simple elegant design. Her passion is to translate the value and beauty of her desserts to others who have suffered a life of abuse and neglect. We are all beautiful, valued, and worthy enough to pursue our dreams and live a more fulfilling life. As each of her desserts are uniquely handmade, Missy believes that each of us are beautifully and wonderfully made and our purpose is to overcome our fears and conquer our dreams.
