Julie was born and raised in Victoria, TX. Her parents homeschooled her and her three sisters their entire lives up until college. In her spare time she enjoys watching cake shows/competitions on tv and playing with her nieces and nephews.
Kenton was born and raised in Texas City, TX. He eventually made his way to Houston where he ended up getting the same degree as Julie. In his spare time Kenton enjoys playing with their two English bulldogs, Dozer & Diesel, and his PS4.
The answer to a question that gets asked a lot: Yes, Julie made her own wedding cake and Kenton's groom's cake! She says even though it was stressful that was one of the best decisions to do it herself.
My story begins when I was 14 years old. I asked my mother if I could make my baby sister's 7th birthday cake. My mom was surprised because I had never decorated a cake, much less even touched a piping bag; but she went ahead and bought me a cake decorator start up kit and let me try. From that very first cake I was hooked! I knew that this was exactly what I wanted to do. So in order to help me practice my skills, my mother would drive me around our neighborhood and sell my goodies to the neighbors and our church friends. And slowly but surely I gradually kept getting better and better with my cake decorating.
Fast forward a few years....
I went to the University of Houston to get my Bachelors degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management. This is where I met the love of my life, my husband Kenton.
I had a nine year career working for the Four Seasons Hotel Company, traveling all over the state of Texas and Wyoming, working my way up to Pastry Chef de Partie. In 2013 I decided to venture out on my own and I opened a bakery out of our house in Waxahachie, TX. The business exploded and I quickly realized that the cakes I made were something special, truly unique from anyone elses. That experience is what gave me the confidence to open up a real storefront. So in 2016 my husband and I moved to my hometown, Victoria, TX, to open Sweet As Can Be Bakery.
I would love to help make your event extra special by adding something sweet! Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Showers, I can do it all! I look forward to meeting & working with you!
