Podcast Episode: Interview with Danira Cancinos from Danis Dulce Confections

Would you like to make a good living out of a confectionary business? Do you believe that it’s possible to do this? Today, I’m excited to introduce you to Danira Cancinos, from Dani’s Dulce Confections, in Sylmar, California. One of the questions I’m asked very often is “Can you make enough real money out of this to support a family?”. Although I always say you can, people still seem to think it’s impossible. So Dani is here on the show with me today to prove that this is, indeed, possible. Listen in, to find out about Dani and her awesome, inspiring, and lucrative confectionary business.

Dani has really achieved a lot! I’ve been her Instagram fan for a long time and her posts are amazing! When I see them, I almost drool over her creations because she makes some of the most delicious-looking treats that I have ever seen! Especially her caramel apples!  In addition to making all kinds of treats, she also teaches a number of online classes and some in-person online tutorials. She recently sold a caramel apple class, which earned her over five figures! This is truly incredible, so we will be talking about it in today’s episode. Dani did not grow up in a wealthy family, so her business is all about dedication and putting in a huge amount of work. Tune in today, to hear her story.

  1. Thank you Michelle & Dani for sharing your Experiences. I have been dreaming and working on my passion on baking and making my dream come really but due to small kids and other issue I have still not started and still taking small orders from home for last 7 years. I thought I’m already too late to startup, But after listing to this podcast I relieved that this homework is required. Thank you
