Melina Delkic created a business plan for Melina's Cakes in her entrepreneurship class. The teen bakes and sells her creations at Whole Foods in Kirkwood.
An Oakville High School senior has used an entrepreneurship class to open her own bakery business. Melina Delkic says learned how to bake at an early age and spent hours in the kitchen with her mother, according to a news release from the Mehlville School District.
