This week I speak with Kareem Queeman, better known as Mr. Bake. He’s the owner and operator of Mr. Bake Sweets, a small dessert studio located in Largo, MD. He’s been baking for 20+ years. 

In the years that Mr. Bake Sweets has operated, he's done a few television appearances on Food Network, Fox, ABC, and Discovery Family. He's also a 2020 Business of Pride honoree by the Washington Business Journal. Mr. Bake prides himself on diversity, inclusivity, community outreach and always making the world a better place, one cake at a time. 

We discuss: 

·         how he got onto cooking TV shows 

·         representation, especially for chefs of color, and those in the LGBTQ community

·         branding

·         taking your business to the next level

·         baking with cake mixes and using scales

·         so much more…
