In 2014, Lydia Allen took her first cake decorating class with her mother Maria Allen. As Lydia slowly grew to love this hobby, she taught herself everything she wanted to know. When her passion grew strong, she decided to start selling her cakes. As the months went on, the hobby became a business. That’s when Sweetie Pie’s Bakery was started in late 2014. Lydia was only 15 at the time of her first cake sale.
With Lydia still being a full time junior, she could not handle it all on her own. In February of 2015, Maria started helping out. She became the half time baker and frosting maker, the grocery shopper and clean-up crew. As the business grew bigger than it had ever been, all hands were on deck to make the dream a reality.
When 2016 started, the goals and aspirations got bigger than ever. Turning 18, graduating school and receiving a home bakery business license, Lydia noticed everything becoming more real. This is just the beginning of Sweetie Pie’s Bakery and great adventures for a mother and daughter team!
(Owner, Baker and Decorator)
I am the baker and owner of Sweetie Pie's Bakery.
My passion and drive for this business is greater than any other dream I have had. I enjoy making peoples days and special events perfect with the finishing touch of a custom cake!
I would not be successful in my business if it wasn't for my biggest supporters. My Mom and Dad who let me destroy the kitchen every week, my grandparents Nanny and Papa for showing me all dreams can come true as long as I manage my money and believe in myself. Without these people in my life I wouldn't be the person I am today!
(Baker & Manager)
This is my mama Maria Allen. She is my assistant extraordinaire when it comes to sugar cookies, holiday specials, deliveries and the best of all, clean up! She is an awesome and amazing assistant who makes this whole adventure ten times more fun! Thanks to her many talents in baking and cooking, I have inherited my talent and skills for cake decorating and more! Sweetie Pie's would not be successful without her!
In Loving Memory
Phillip "Papa" Allen
My Papa was an inspiration to my bakery name, a motivator to success and a man who taught me how to make money. He was wise and stubborn to everyone he met and would never let a person forget him. My Papa was my Nanny's "Sweetie Pie" from the day they met and will be mine forever. Let Sweetie Pie's live on in your name Papa.
