Bella Nava Creations is a Black, woman-owned business in Shakopee, MN. Owner, Brandie Itman is a stay at home mom turned baker. She began her journey by making a cake for her daughter’s second birthday. It was so fun that she decided to make another cake, and another, and never stopped. She has since honed her cake decorating skills and expanded her repertoire to include additional treats; such as Macaron’s and decorated cookies, earning her the title of Sweetest Cake Shop in Minnesota, in a national competition in 2019. Brandie’s hope is to bring the world joy through cake.
