Welcome to Sweetini's
The summer before I entered the 4th grade, my amazing Mom let me bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Her only rule was "clean up after you are done." My family's nurturing spirit and support paired with my powerful sweet tooth has paved the way for my business, Sweetini's Cake Shop.
Knowing I wanted a food-centric education, I majored in Food Science and Management in college. I attended Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, PA. I was blessed with parents who were committed to helping me find my path. My Dad found DVC (now DVU), which was a perfect blend of academics and athletics and close enough to NJ for my fan base to come watch my soccer games.
Obtaining a business background in the food industry was important to me, hence my Management background vs a full on culinary degree. This decision proved fruitful through my job experience in the food ingredient manufacturing and distribution industry where I learned a plethora of skills, including ingredient functionality, formula costing, sales & marketing, and food safety and quality assurance. I made several stops at small bakeries and cafes where I worked as a baker, cook, and manager. My broad experience in the exciting, ever changing food industry has set me up for success in my business today.
While my tenure in the industry provided intangible business acumen and skills, I wanted more specific education to hone my skills for cake decorating, which I have done as a hobby for as long as I can remember. After researching local programs, I enrolled at ICE (Institute for Culinary Education) in lower Manhattan in October 2018. For 6 months, I traveled to the city and earned a certificate in the Art of Cake Decorating Program, directed by Chef Toba Garrett. Chef Toba and the staff at ICE have been instrumental in my professional development as a Cake Artist. Chef Beth and Chef Penny were phenomenal instructors and business women, from who I continue to learn from today.
The culmination of my journey made way for the birth of Sweetini's Cake Shop, officially, in 2018. Branding and marketing were facilitated by my talented brother in law, Justin, of Fourg Athletics.
