Renovations giving Delish owner rare time to reflect

The popular Delish Cakery at University Place closed recently for renovations and to finish repairs from a water leak last winter.

Keogh, who turns 30 later this summer, began Delish Cakery out of her kitchen in 2009 by selling cupcakes, French macarons, cookies and other treats in the Innovation Park office park.

Keogh usually posts two to four new images a day. The Instagram page has more than 1,500 followers. “I’m really popular in Charlotte,” she said, “and the second biggest group is in Jakarta (Indonesia). It’s weird, but a lot of ladies over there like me!” With time off from daily bakery demands, Keogh is working on a fresh interior design for Delish and “more modern and chic designs” for her custom cakes.
