Silver Spoon Desserts

Tamara Turner founded Silver Spoon Desserts in her Aurora, Illinois, home. She poured all her focus and energy into pursuing her passion and along the way created opportunities for her children and her community. Years later, an opportunity to expand her business when American came knocking, and Turner’s growth took flight into her very own 16,000-square-foot Chicago facility and a platform to reach dessert lovers around the world. The bundt cakes are available in domestic premium cabins on flights between 900 and 1,499 miles.
