It all began with a conversation. While sharing her passion for promoting food products with her great aunt, there she first learned of a family old and forgotten gem: teacakes. Her now 82-year-old aunt and 84-year-old grandmother shared the ingredients of the Southern Teacakes their mother baked for them every day in Georgia. Even describing the Watkins vanilla flavoring. Kiwanis took it a step further and started her small business, Rustic Twigs Teacakes. Surprisingly, the sisters hadn't tasted a Teacake in more than 40 years. Kiwanis created the business to revive her great grandmother's recipe.
Additionally, Kiwanis published her second children's book titled, Pretty Ugly Cake.
