Hidden F&B: Daddy's Girl Bakery

Nathan Brown, who goes by Nate, is a poet. He was reading poetry and his wife, Chasity, would bring cake to the audience to get their feedback. No telling how the poetry went over, but the cake? It was a hit, and the couple is still baking. The couple openedDaddy’s Girl Bakeryin North Charleston during COVID-19, but they’re not letting a pandemic stop them.

Chasity: I don’t like when we put all the information on social media and they STILL have to ask.
Most Underrated Ingredient
Chasity: Cream cheese, inside of pastry or icing.
Nate: Fresh fruit in baking.
