From the Heart of a Cake Artist

     Samantha's Sweets is currently NOT ACCEPTING any new orders at this time. My apologies.  
ALL cakes already on the calendar will be made and delivered with the same attention to detail and deliciousness that you have come to expect from Samantha's Sweets. 

From the Heart of a Cake Artist...

     Not a day goes by that I don't think about baking a cake, decorating a cookie, or searching the net for amazing cake designs.  My facebook page is full of cake photos friends share stating, "I thought of you when I saw this."  My Pinterest is automatically programmed, like Tivo, to show me nothing but cakes and sweet treats. For these past years,  Samantha's Sweets has grown more than I could have ever imagined, and I have become "that cake lady."  Friends and family have supported me with encouragement and love.  I have had the privilege of being a part of so many wonderful life events.
     Samantha's Sweets is who I am, what I feel God has wanted me to do,  and something that I am NOT GIVING UP! 
     However, due to personal reasons,  I will be taking a break from most orders other than my scheduled wedding cakes.  ALL WEDDING CAKES on the calendar will be created and delivered with the same deliciousness and attention to detail you have come to expect from Samantha's Sweets. No changes there!  I will also be taking a few orders here and there and offering cookies, fondant toppers, and marshmallow pops for shipping as well.
     Please contact me with questions and concerns anytime. Just email me, message, or call for party advice. I will be there to help, even through this break. Please continue to call me your cake lady and know I will be back in full swing before you know it.
     My customers mean so very much to me.  I can't express how much I appreciate your business and friendship.
