After a career in the financial field, Korinne Seel found herself a stay-at-home mom with the itch to try something a little different. So she turned her hobby into a business.

Korinne has always enjoyed entertaining people but her passion wasn’t in the cooking. No, she found her passion in the presentation of the food for a party reports WRAL.com.

She noticed that in bigger cites on the West and East Coasts, businesses were popping up creating high-end dessert tables. These aren’t cakes and pies laid out buffet style, but custom-designed spreads with matching colors and themes featuring every kind of sweet you can imagine. Korinne tries to support other moms working from home by using their products in her work – from candy and cakes to paper and other items.

So Swank Sweets was born in October 2009. Korinne has created fancy tables for weddings, showers, birthdays and more.
