We had the good fortune of connecting with Amy & Frankie Baez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amy & Frankie, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
One of the main things that most people are unaware of this industry is the time and effort that goes into creating a custom cake with all it’s details and props. Each cake requires planning, organization, creativity (when the client allows free reign), and problem solving. Planning and organization are a must because this allows us to know when we can create certain decorations and/or toppers that need to be made in advance. Creativity is important because this is when we can help clients bring their ideas to life based on their theme and/or colors that are requested. Lastly, problem solving is key because sometimes things don’t go as planned due to high humidity levels or other contributing factors.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets us apart from others is a lot of free hand work, we have had the opportunity to incorporate urban art into our cakes. Our work has spoken for itself, word of mouth has also been a contributing factor. We also like to give to our clients to show our appreciation. Something we have learned along the way is not to rush things, learning to pace ourselves and valuing our time. Going the extra mile for a client always pays off. We want people to know that everything we create is made with love. We are truly passionate when it comes to creating cakes for clients and we always give our all. We invest a lot of time researching and learning new techniques, from how to carve a particular cake to what flavors pair well together. This has been an amazing journey for my husband and I. Life’s a Treat!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Pappas Steakhouse for dinner!!! They have the most amazing steaks. Kuu is also a great place for sushi. We also enjoy the outdoors, Hermann Park is a nice place to visit and have a picnic. We also love visiting CityCentre, the atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to shoutout to a few people. One is my husband Frankie for all the support, encouragement, and artistry that he brings to our business. Also my children, they encourage me to become a better baker and cake decorator. Lastly, my mother- without her help and encouragement I would not be where I am today. She is an amazing woman that I truly admire!
