About Marlene’s Premiere Desserts:

In 1997, Marlene Squires-Swanson began giving her signature rum cakes as holiday gifts to friends and family. The cakes were received with such enthusiastic appreciation, that Marlene was encouraged to experiment with additional flavors and cremes. The premiere rums and liqueurs she uses in all of her cakes give them a luscious flavor and moist texture that melts in the mouth. Last year, when the company Marlene worked for was hurt by the economic recession and Marlene needed new employment, she decided to go into business for herself. Marlene explained, “I just couldn’t sit still and wait for something to come to me. I had to set an example for my children, demonstrating that if you want something you have to take the initiative and work for it.” Marlene applies this can-do attitude to her new business as well as her baking. This past summer she sold her cakes at four separate farmers markets in Wisconsin. She’s convinced her local food store in her hometown of Green Bay, Wisconsin to carry them. And now by partnering with Wisconsinmade.com, Marlene’s Premiere Desserts gains a strong internet presence. In the short time that Marlene’s cakes have been available on Wisconsinmade.com, customers have discovered them, and Marlene is now shipping her cakes across the country.
