Amy’s Creative Cakes of Quakertown is making a name for itself in the cake decorating world and is becoming known for not only delicious, but beautifully created cakes and desserts. Since opening in 2006, Amy’s Creative Cakes has participated on a national level in both cake and cookie competitions and has won countless awards including 1st place and Best of Show for the tasting division at the November 2011 White Rose Show, 1st place in the advanced cupcake division at the March 2014 N.C.A.C.S, and most recently, the Fan Favorite award at the Pearl S. Buck Taste of the World Event in May 2015. Additionally, Amy Recinos, owner of Amy’s Creative Cakes, was invited by Celebrity Chef Barry Sexton to present at his booth at the Atlantic City Taste, Food, Wine, and Spirits Festival this past July. The event took place in the grand ballrooms and event spaces of the Claridge Hotel on the Atlantic City boardwalk and featured world-renowned chefs and exciting events.
Although she has had a love for baking since an early age, Amy Recinos did not go to culinary school but rather holds a BS in Marketing and a BA in Business from DeSales University and worked in the pharmaceutical industry. After deciding to leave pharmaceuticals to raise her family, Amy began taking cake decorating classes and rediscovered her passion for baking and decorating cakes. That passion turned her love for being in the kitchen into a two-hundred and fifty custom cakes a year business.
In the modern world of Pinterest and television programs about baking competitions, cakes have become a central part of most events but especially weddings. Cake is no longer just there to be traditionally cut by the bride and groom, it is a central part of décor and requires planning upwards of a year in advance. Amy’s Creative Cakes offers a large variety of custom cake choices that will not only showcase the unique style and theme of each wedding, but will also taste amazing. Her website and the weddingwire.com are filled with fantastic reviews including “Amy made the most amazing cake for our wedding. She made our ideas come to life and the cake was unique and perfect! The taste was also incredible and our guests all raved about it! I would recommend Amy to everyone!” The company prides itself on providing high quality, professionally decorated, custom cakes, cupcake towers, cookies and homemade candy.
With its increasing success, Amy’s Creative Cakes believes in giving back to the local community. Each year, Amy organizes and funds a local cupcake competition in which the proceeds benefit the downtown Quakertown area, including local businesses; Amy has also organized benefits for the Quakertown Food Pantry. In addition to giving back within her own community, Amy has also participated in multiple philanthropic events including the Pearl S. Buck Taste of the World annual gala which contributes aide to multiple countries worldwide and she is a supporter of the Turning Point, a victim abuse center in the Lehigh Valley.
As a member of the ICES (International Cake Exploration Societe) and by attending classes with renowned sugar artists from around the world to stay current with trends and further her skills, Amy Recinos has appealed to many in the Bucks, Montgomery and Lehigh County areas.
