About the Owner:
Amanda, the Sweet Fix founder, has over 15 years of experience in the fine arts and received her degree at The Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. She was the founding director of Gallery5, a non-profit visual and performing art center in Richmond, Virginia where she received numerous awards and recognitions. In 2008 she received The Theresa Pollak Award for “Art Innovator of the Year”, and in 2006, was the youngest recipient of Style Weekly’s “Top 40 under 40” awards. Under her direction, Gallery5 was awarded “Best Art Gallery of the Year” consistently by the readers of Style Weekly and Richmond Magazine.
Her interest and passion for baking began after the birth of her first and only child in 2008. While the art of gourmet cooking is of great interest to her, refining the craft of baking and decorating redirected her creative energy to the world of cakes. Amanda is a self-taught baker, who has spent many years refining her skills. Amanda has developed all of Sweet Fix’s cake recipes to ensure their originality, quality and style. Sweet Fix began in 2009 as a part-time home-based business operated solely by Amanda. As the demand for her custom cakes and dessert tables grew, so did her kitchen and staff. .
Amanda’s custom designs and artistic cake decorating has become recognized in major local and national media outlets including: Weddings Unveiled, Engaged Magazine, 100 Layer Cake, Martha Stewart Weddings, Wedding Chicks, Green Wedding Shoes, Ruffled Blog, Style Me Pretty, Every Last Detail, Young House Love, Burnett’s Boards, Wedding Sparrow, Swooned, Trendy Bride Magazine, Southern Weddings Magazine,, Virginia Living Magazine, Borrowed & Blue, Glamour & Grace, Virginia Bride, The Lovely Find, Project Wedding, Tidewater & Tulle, Richmond Bride and many others..
