One-on-One with LaKisa Taylor, owner of Pretty Girl Cupcakery


Pretty Girl Cupcakery is the place on Baltimore Avenue for where owner LaKisa Taylor says customers can buy, “the best cupcakes in the Washington, D.C./Prince George’s area.” The cupcakery is located in the art district of Hyattsville where the D.C. line and popular restaurant Busboys and Poets are less than one minute away. Taylor wears many hats as the owner of Pretty Girl Cupcakery despite having four to five retail associates—she serves as operations, marketing, delivery driver, decorator, wedding and party planner. Despite her busy schedule, the gracious and multi-talented Taylor made room for an interview with Alexis A. Goring, lifestyle reporter for The Sentinel.
