I Am Brooklyn: Baker creates cakes for kids living in homeless shelter to celebrate birthdays

DYKER HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — She's made cakes for the Mob Wives and UFC champions, but Maria Nitti might get the most pleasure from making birthday cakes for kids.

Last year Nitti launched "Operation Birthday Party" from her store Isabella's Creations in Dyker Heights. Each month Nitti and volunteers, like Whole Lot Of Bounce!, put on a birthday party for kids at a Brooklyn Homeless shelter. Last year she helped more than 400 kids celebrate.

PIX11 News caught up with Nitti in this segment of I Am Brooklyn.
