We had the good fortune of connecting with Christina Logan-Rowe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christina, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success/the success of my brand is consistency in presentation, taste and the quality of my product. I represent Delectable Temptations; what I’ve done to bring new, loyal and OG clients back is consistency/preparation. It plays a HUGE part in my success and where I am today.
Presentation, the aroma and taste is what matters to me. The visual reactions, texts, reviews I get from my clients is humbling/gratifying. When they’re pleased with my product then I’m pleased, word of mouth is a powerful thing and I strive to get great reviews every time. I stay focused and in my lane when it comes to baking; also experimenting new flavors and ways to stay innovative with my artistry.
My passion, determination, faith, drive, encouragement, prayers from myself, family and clients is what keeps me motivated. That’s why I keep pushing myself to do better than the day before as I take one day at a time to accomplish my goals.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My name is Christina Logan-Rowe, owner/baker of Delectable Temptations Online Bakery. It’ll be 10 years in October that I’ve been baking/creating/perfecting the artistry of my temptations. What sets me apart from other bakers is consistency in presentation, quality and taste in my product. I realize my clients eat with their eyes first, the smell of my temptations is what they experience next and lastly the taste and quality of my art is what keeps new, loyal and OG clients coming back. I’m proud of myself because I’ve been blessed to do what I love and am passionate about what I do when it comes to my clients satisfaction. I’ve gotten where I am today because of GOD and with the support of my family. They’ve pushed, prayed, supported me through all of this and they will continue to be my #1 fans through it all. My clients is what keeps my business going, I keep them satisfied and in return they’re loyal and keeps me open for business. I’m transparent and stay true to my product and what I present to my clients; they mean the world to me. Keeping them satisfied/happy is what keeps me motivated/elevated to be better/do better.
It’s been a little bit of both hard/easy; working a FT job and keeping my business going has been a challenge at times, early morning hours working at my regular job then getting off to be up through the middle of the night to make sure order’s are complete is what I push for. A lot of praying with God by my side is what keeps me going; sometimes I felt like giving up and calling it quits but that’s not in my blood, I’m definitely not a quitter.

Hello my loves! I would love to give a shout out to first God for allowing and giving me the talent, motivation and strength to pursue/perfect my dream/passion in the artistry of baking. Secondly, my family…what can I say about my wonderful family. To my hubby, adult kids, mom/pop and the rest of my wonderful family. Thank you ALL so much for your support, ideas, encouragement, pushing me, prayers, advice and so much more to keep me going through it all. The FT hours I worked at my regular job and late night hours staying up to get orders out, I couldn’t have done this without your support and prayers. Lastly, to my beautiful, wonderful, loyal clients!… I wouldn’t be where I am today without YOU ALL!!!! I can’t name everyone BUT wish I could, the list is so long. I would like to say I love/thank YOU ALL soooooo much always have and forever will. Your humble/devoted baker “Delectable Temptations Online Bakery.”
