About Us

Welcome to

A Sweet Memory Cake Shoppe and Tea Room

We are a small family owned and operated business that opened in January of 2012. I am Maryann Thieme the owner, operator, designer, decorator and baker. I do have a wonderful staff that makes all that I dream of possible. Our staff consists of the most talented, friendly and interesting people who are like my family.

Chanda Duff, our head decorator and master chocolate and sugar artist, specializes in creating one of a kind sculpted cakes, chocolate centerpieces, and sugar show pieces. Chanda attended Platt College in Oklahoma City, OK and has been decorating cakes since she was a little girl with her mother. Chanda also currently holds a position at the Borgota Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City as a pastry cook. I am happy and blessed that she walked into my life.

Sarah Rod our baker and decorator she attended The Institute of Culinary Education in New York. Sarah has worked in many of the areas bakeries and has many years of experience in all aspects of the bakery business. Sarah’s unique sense of style brings a young, funky, hip vibe to our shoppe. She has been a delightfully unexpected addition to our family.

Amanda Calafiore is our extra set of hands. Amanda assists all of us with anything and everything we need. Amanda currently attends Lacey Middle School and is an honor roll student. Her pure willingness to work and learn is commendable and I am lucky to have her as part of my family here and at home.

Now that you have a feel for our staff, let me tell you the vision I had for our shoppe. Our shoppe is unique in so many ways. The idea was to create an atmosphere that was warm, cozy and inviting where everyone would feel as if they were coming into my home for a fresh home baked sweet treat and a hot or cold cup of tea. We converted an old house that was once an office space into our custom cake shoppe and tea room complete with a fireplace and all!

All the sweet treats that we create, bake, and decorate are produced right here in our kitchen. We use only the finest and freshest ingredients available. We pride ourselves in providing our clients with the best cakes, cupcakes, and sweet creations possible. We treat each and every client like family and prefer to form long lasting ongoing relationships. Our clients are our inspiration to continue to strive to be the best at what we do. All the long hours we work is worth it when we present our clients with the cake, cupcake, or sweet creation of their dreams and their reaction is one of delight, amazement and joy. That is priceless and means the world to us.

It is our goal to continue to bring our clients the best products available and to continually invent new, exciting and delicious sweet creations.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my staff as well as our company. We will continue to work hard and be here for you when your event needs a unique sweet creation!!
