Trained professionally and working as an elementary school teacher, it wasn't until May of 2006 that Amy Stella found her passion as a cake decorator quite accidentally!  While her younger sister was in the process of planning her own wedding, Amy became very involved in the decision making.  Cake idea after idea was suggested for her sister's wedding which got Amy thinking, "Hey, I could do this myself!"  From there things just snowballed!  With her natural inclination for the arts and baking, her eye for detail and perfectionism, and her love of all things sweet, she quickly developed Cakes Unique By Amy into a well referred cake decorating business by just word of mouth.

Amy worked throughout middle school, high school, and college at Broward Candy under the guidance of it's original owner, Robert Ankeles.  After ten years in the candy business she had learned everything there was to know about candy making.  Graduating cum laude from Florida Atlantic University in 1995 with a Bachelors in Education, Amy went straight to work as a fifth grade teacher for the next eight years. The birth of her two young daughters, Sophie and Lily in 2003 and 2004 put her teaching career on a brief hold up until 2005 when she returned to teaching on a part time basis as a fourth grade writing coach. By early 2008 Amy resigned from her teaching career in order to focus soley on her labor of love, Cakes Unique.
 


With no formal training in the culinary arts, most of Amy's customers first reactions are that her cakes are so beautiful that they don't want to cut into them.  Their second reaction is that they can't believe the cake tasted as good as it looked!  The combination of doing something that you truly love and being able to make someone's special occasion all the more memorable is what keeps Amy striving to better her craft.

Born, bred, and residing in Hollywood, Florida, Amy lives with her husband Mike, their daughters Sophie and Lily, and their English Bulldogs Cookie and T-Bone!  When not baking, Amy loves reading, going to the beach, and most importantly, being with her family.
