About this pro

How does your service stand out?

In cake designing, every cake is a work of art. As every artist has a different style or technique, you will find that to be true with any cake designer. I believe my work stands out and shows my creativity as well as patience and skill associated with the experience needed in this field.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love making someone's day a great memory! To be able to have the opportunity to express someone's idea or style for their special occasion is what I enjoy to the fullest. It is an incredible feeling seeing someone show enthusiasm for what I have worked to make their idea or dream a reality.

    Amanda was fantastic every step of the way. From the initial meeting to the day of the wedding. Her cake looked EXACTLY like we wanted it to but tasted AMAZING!! I can't believe how many of our wedding guests came up to us and said... "I've had 3 or 4 pieces of cake and I don't even eat cake. This is the best wedding cake we have ever had" She is reasonable, fair, easy to work with and I've already recommended her to some friends getting married soon! Thank you Amanda!

    The cake was beautiful. It looked exactly how I was expecting. Everyone at the reception commentated on how great it tasted. I will definitely use Cakes by Amanda in the future when needed.

    So talented! Highly Recommend!
    Amanda was awesome throughout the whole process! From the cake tasting (making extra gluten free flavors as we alternated layers), to the execution the day of, and not to mention how great it tasted and looked! Everyone told us that night and the next day that it was the best wedding cake they had ever had!

    Wonderful wedding cake baker
    Amanda was very punctual, professional, and a joy to work with during our wedding planning. We wanted a naked wedding cake and Amanda definitely delivered. The cake was delicious and looked gorgeous...exactly what we had in mind!

    Heartily recommend!
    Amanda created a beautiful and very delicious cake for my daughter's wedding. Not only was it visually stunning and exactly what my daughter had asked for, it was luscious and tasty. Not just a run-of-the mill boring cake! Amanda was extremely prompt in answering questions, responding to texts (on robertavanesov.ru), every time we met with her, and with the delivery of the cake. She arranged the fresh flowers between the layers at the venue. We simply could not have asked for better service or for a better cake. We highly recommend Specialty Cakes by Amanda, and I will absolutely order our special event cakes from her in the future.

    For my daughter's wedding, we wanted a very specific type of cupcake holder and Amanda searched the internet for us until she found them available in Canada!! WAY beyond what I would have expected...she was so amazing in tracking down these hand made parchment paper holders. Can not thank her enough for going above and beyond. She was very sweet and professional - will use her again without a doubt.

    Amanda provided both the bride and groom cake for my wedding and my only regret is not eating more of it! Both cakes were delicious! My husband and I are having a hard time saving our top tier because we want to eat it so badly haha! Amanda was extremely professional and provided us with a very impressive tasting session, we were sold immediately! She was very easy to work with and I could not be more satisfied with the results!

    Amanda did my wedding cake as well as our grooms cake and she did an AMAZING job. Most of the time when you go to a wedding the cake is almost always dry and not worthy of getting seconds. Amanda's was on the total opposite end of the spectrum. Our wedding cake tasted just as delicious as the one we had when we did the tasting. It looked exactly the way I wanted it and she did an awesome job arranging the flowers and greenery on it. She went above and beyond for the grooms cake. We were expecting a double T in icing (for Texas Tech), but she made a 3D double T out of chocolate. It looked amazing. Both the chocolate fudge grooms cake and our French vanilla wedding cake were so moist and so delicious that our families continued to eat the cakes after the wedding and cleaning up and going back to the hotel. My husband and I would pay good money to have her send us more of our wedding cake in the mail. We have nothing but the best to say about Amanda! She was super easy to work with. Very professional and flexible and very well priced. We highly recommend her services for any occasion.
    Amanda S. Dec 14, 2015

    Thank you so much, Jayne- it was such a great experience working with you guys as well! I recall overhearing someone say, while I was arranging your greenery on your wedding cake, "this couple is one of the nicest and sweetest couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with". And I agree 100 percent! Thank you both for allowing me the opportunity to be a part in your special day and I would most certainly love to continue to make your specialty cakes in the years to come. Many blessings! Amanda Sullivan

    Amanda was fabulous! I ordered a cake for a bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law to feed 20-25 people, with a specific theme. Amanda didn't just do an outstanding job on the cake, she also delivered it to the venue too for a minimal fee. Plus we ended up with a larger party of 30 and there was still plenty of cake for everyone. The cake tasted scrumptious too. I will definately use "Specialty Cakes by Amanda" for future projects! Amanda - Fantastic Job! Thank you, T. Hillman

Q&A

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
The prices are normally done by the slice. For buttercream iced cakes, the starting price is $3.50 per slice but can go up depending on the details. The fondant covered cakes start at $5 per slice and again, the price can go up depending on the details and cake flavor chosen by the client. I do offer the top tier anniversary cake free of charge. Cupcakes range from $35-$50 per dozen and cake pops are $40 a dozen. Chocolate covered strawberries are $30 a dozen.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started helping my aunt who had been decorating and designing cakes for over 20 years at the age of 18. I always have had a love for drawing and creating things with my hands, so this came almost natural! I fell in love with it almost immediately!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Wedding cakes, groom cakes, bridal showers, baby showers, anniversary cakes, birthdays, cake pops, cupcakes...you name it I pretty much have done it when it comes to any cake for a special occasion.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would recommend that they ask to look at the providers recent work and also find out how long they have been doing this type of work. This is a skilled profession that takes years of practice. It is not something that can be learned overnight, and you would want to be confident that the person helping make your occasion special knows what he/she is doing.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish my customers knew that I desire nothing more than to make sure when I have worked and completed the project that they are truly happy. It makes my day to see someone truly excited and thrilled with my work. I wish they would also be aware that designing a cake is comparable to an artist. My media just happens to be icing and cake!
