Rising Stars: Meet Jaszmane Sisco

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jaszmane Sisco. 

Hi Jaszmane, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Little Suga’s started based on me really just connecting with myself and trying to infuse my purpose and passion together all in one. I spent the majority of my life gaining my first degree in the medical field because I felt my purpose was to help people. However, I was super passionate about food and after undergrad, I literally came to the conclusion that I wanted to be a Chef. I am super creative so I decided to get my culinary degree in Baking and Pastry Arts to become a Pastry Chef. After graduating from culinary school, I knew I wanted to launch my LLC. After producing so many baked goods I then realized I didn’t just have to bake custom orders. I realized I could teach people how to make this stuff themselves. For me, it’s all about purpose, passion, and longevity. If I can be happy doing something within those guidelines, I’m not only doing this for myself, but I’m contributing to someone else’s life in an inspiring way as well. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It’s been a smooth road for the most part because I have a strong support system. The only struggle I’ve had along the way was really accepting the entrepreneurial lifestyle. I’ve always been a planner and I was comfortable with my set schedule and routine when I worked in the corporate world. But as an entrepreneur, there’s no set schedule. I had to learn how to pivot a lot and I had to learn how to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize in custom cupcakes for events and pop-ups within the community. I also instruct baking and pastry arts classes for adults and children at the Flint Farmers’ Market. I am most proud of my creativity. There are not a lot of people in my city assembling the cupcakes that I produce for pop-up shops or teaching classes for children as young as four years old within my community. I think what sets me apart from others is really my imagination and ability to execute. I am one that sits and thinks of flavor combinations all day and will make it into a cupcake and sell it at my next pop-up shop. My imagination also drives me to think that we all need to know how to make a loaf of bread from scratch because if we have another lockdown, the bread can go out as the toilet paper did. Then that’s me planning my next bread class for adults. 

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
My ambition is probably the most important to my success.
