Two Tulsa sisters start a cake pop business and use their profits to do something good.
The Adkins girls are all about family, hard work and giving. They use the money they earn from their new cake pop business to buy school supplies and clothes for other children in need.
“My favorite part of baking is cracking the egg because I do it with one hand and I’m like, ‘I’m so cool! I need to be on one of those baking shows, ”said 13-year-old Kylie. Adkins.
Kylie and her sister Isabella Adkins, 10, grew up helping their mom at Flo’s Diner. They recently started their own business called Small Helping Hands.
“We are doing it [baking] at Catoosa Diner, then we pack them, then we come here and do it there, ”Isabella said.
They make and sell cake jars and popsicles, but they use the profits to buy school supplies, clothes and shoes for needy children in the community.
“My mom makes all these family meals and stuff and I thought it would be cool to do that for the little kids,” Kylie said.
Their mom Brandy opens her restaurant as often as she can to serve free lunches to families in need. She’s served hundreds of people now and her daughters are watching.
In the first week of activity, Kylie and Isabella were able to raise enough money to buy ten pairs of shoes for children at a school in Tulsa.
The girls said their mother had taught them a very valuable lesson.
“You never know what’s going to happen to you,” Isabella said.
Customers can purchase from Small Helping Hands, at Flo’s Diner in Tulsa. Brandy equalizes Kylie and Isabella’s profits.
