When you think of the keto diet, normally your mind does not travel to the realm of sweet treats and breads, however Nicole Yates had a vision. When she began her keto journey over a year ago, she quickly discovered alternatives for delicious baked goods and started making them for her family. They were a hit!
Nicole is originally a dental hygienist and from North Carolina. She has lost 55 pounds on her journey to a healthier lifestyle. When her husband was faced with a job transfer, they moved to Lexington in February of 2019. Nicole felt that she was missing an “ingredient” in her life and decided to “measure” the concept of a Keto based baking business.
In 4 months, my business has grown large enough that I am moving into a commercial space soon and have brought in a second team member. Lexington and the surrounding area have supported me so much and I’m honored and in awe of this journey. People want a healthy alternative.Nicole Yates, Owner of Carolina Keto Cakes
