Our Miracle Story

Culinary artist and confectioner Kenneth D. Brooks Jr. serves as founder and CEO of Masterpiece Desserts. He was born into a traveling military family in San Bernardino, California, and raised between Houston, Texas, and Washington District of Columbia. Growing up, Kenneth always dreamed of becoming a doctor. As a result, he participated in many activities such as playing on the football team, singing in the church, and school choirs to stay active and work towards that dream. Making sure he stayed involved, Kenneth worked part-time jobs throughout his high school career to prepare for college.

After graduating high school, he began his career as a Neuro Diagnostic Technician, and four years into his career, he experienced a life-changing event that he was unprepared for. On March 3, 2014, Kenneth experienced cardiac arrest lasting over four minutes, leaving him in a three-day coma. With doctors uncertain if he would wake up, they proclaim this event would bring extreme trauma and leave Kenneth with severe brain damage. However, on March 6, 2014, he woke up with the gift of a vision and a skill. The vision was Masterpiece Desserts, and the gift is baking the "World's Most Delicious Cheesecakes" known to man, woman, and child. 

After that life-changing event, Kenneth continued working in the field of neurology full-time until December 30, 2017. At that point, it had become clear that it was time to take the business to the next level and begin using his gifts to touch others. Masterpiece Desserts is on its way to unseen heights because of Kenneth's excellent customer care and genuine love for serving others.
