Taylor Criddle is a native Houstonian and Junior Mechanical Engineering major at Prairie View A&M University. She is the owner and founder of the baking company TAYsty Treats specializing in cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cake balls, cheesecake and pretty much anything else you can bake. Growing up Taylor always liked baking, but it wasn’t until High School that she started selling her TAYsty Treats.
