Owner, baker and cake artist Amanda Leigh Maffucci has been baking, painting and experimenting with recipes from the time she was old enough to hold a spoon or brush.

Two years after earning her degree in Art and Design, Amanda was inspired to combine her love for art with her passion for baking. From her very first class at the Institute of Culinary Education, Amanda knew that she had found her calling in life - creating delicious and stunning confections.

After earning her stripes in the kitchens of some of New York City's most celebrated bakeries, creating countless cakes for family and friends, and perfecting her own recipes and design techniques, Amanda decided it was time to set out on her own. With love and support from her family and friends, Sweet Amanda Leigh officially opened in June 2010!
