Destiny Pullings

Hello Sweets!
Thanks For Visiting.

We hope our story inspires you to pursue your passions and purpose in life, just as the founder did!

's Pops-16

In 2009, the founder of Destiny’s Pops heeded God’s call to follow her dream and turn her passions into a purpose-driven bakery. Since then, we have been serving some of the greatest baked goods. We specialize in making cake pops, cakes, cupcakes, cakes in a jar, cookies, and vegan sweets.

The founder, Destiny Pullings, started Destiny’s Pops at the young age of 12 years old. Growing up Destiny was being groomed and molded to be a successful entrepreneur. She now knows that God was moving her into her “destiny” and her gift. At the age of 12, she told her mother she wanted to have her own cake business. So her mother invested in Destiny’s GOD-given talent and enrolled her in baking classes. As they say, the rest was history. In 2009, Destiny started Cakes by Destiny. As a result of her excellent business sense and customer service, her business rapidly expanded. In 2011, Cakes by Destiny morphed into Destiny’s Pops.

Now 12 years later, Destiny is a wife, mom, baker, and entrepreneur. Destiny’s passion and love for baking has never wavered, and nothing makes her happier than being a part of the special celebrations of her customers.

Throughout those 12 years in which our business success morphed, we have received recognition from customers, local newspapers, business calendars, News/TV appearances, and have even been featured in the NFIB Small Business Weekly’s publication as the Young Entrepreneur Spotlight and the nationwide television show “Harry Show” with Harry Connick Jr.

As a company, we believe in evolving. In 2021, we evolved our brand of Destiny’s Pops to a more purpose-driven company. We felt the call to expand beyond the local homebase bakery, which we so loved for 12 years. We are excited to share our story and sweets with the world! After 12 years of operating in the Richmond, Virginia area, we have relocated to Maryland. Our service area now includes the entire DMV area as well as nationwide shipping.

It is our mission to continuously evolve. We have revised our recipes, branding concept, creative design process, and menu. We are committed to enhancing the customer’s sweet experience while offering quality and consistency. Through really great desserts served perfectly, while building community with people all at the same time.

We, as a company, are always looking for new ways to give back to our community. We believe it’s very important to empower young-hearted entrepreneurs to grow and achieve whatever they put their minds to. We strive to offer programs and services within our company that will help people to grow, learn, and connect. 

That is why we have implemented two awesome programs in Destiny’s Pops. One of which is our Baking It Up Academy program. Through this program, we host a series of in-person and online baking classes for all ages.

And the second is our Give-A-Cake Program; this is something Destiny’s Pops takes pride in. This program is a new initiative for the expansion of our new rebrand launch. Which focuses on the value we provide within our community!

Passion Follower.

Destiny is a wife, mom, baker, and entrepreneur. At the young age of 12 years old, Destiny founded an established bakery called Destiny’s Pops. Throughout those 12 years, Destiny’s passion and love for baking has never wavered, and nothing makes her happier than being a part of the special celebrations of her customers. Destiny also has a passion for her community and imparting those by striving to be a living example by showing them that they can achieve anything they put their minds to.

One way she does this is by doing speaking engagements and local events.

She encourages them to follow their passion and to never give up in spite of any obstacles that may come their way.
