Sweet Treats with Stella Sheldon

Sweet Treats with Stella Sheldon

Stella Sheldon is a freshman at Fairhope High School with amazing baking skills. She is an incredibly talented young baker at age 15. I asked Stella how it all really came about so young and her response was “I’ve always made cakes with my aunt during the holidays, but this year with being in quarantine I really started decorating them. They were super bad in the beginning, but everything gets better with time. Baking has always been apart of my lifestyle. I’ve always loved watching baking shows on television and baking accounts. They just made everything look so fun and yummy!” Soon after quarantine Stella created an Instagram account called @Sweets_by_stells and it’s reached 335 followers already. Stella has made simple to extravagant cakes. Her cakes range from $45-$140. She also does after school classes and clubs but says baking is most of her free time.

Ellery Scott who was a guest at a party who received one of Stella’s cakes stated “I had one of her cakes at my friend’s 17th birthday party and it was not only gorgeous, but delicious! I love the quality of her creations, as well as being able to support a local teen baker.”

With all the attention on Stella and her amazing skills, she is unsure about the future. Stella said “I do love baking and decorating a ton, but I also have other career choices lined up that interest me such as film acting, and nursing! I haven’t quite decided what I intend to do yet, but I think it’s good to have choices!” On behalf of Fairhope High School we are so honored to have Stella at school.
