"We're having a small meeting this morning," Hilburn said. "Everybody will like these."

The rolls — Young calls them "sin-namon" rolls because "they're sinfully delicious" — are her customers' favorite pastries. Rivaling them in popularity are her red velvet cupcakes and giant cookies, she said.

Purposeful location and selection

Young said she limits the selection of treats, preparing those that most appeal to her customers' palates.

"We had a few people ask for petits fours and French pastries, but that's not 'Crestview,'" she said.

While Young and the bakers under her watchful eye bustle around the kitchen, her husband, Joe, a Crestview Aerospace engineer, is Sweet Dreams' business mind.

Before coming to Crestview, the couple operated a cottage bakery in Charleston, S.C. Kim Young also ran a delicatessen, but said she has no interest in offering sandwiches or meals that might compete with downtown restaurants.
