Mrs. February, Staci Dunn
The Cake Lady, aka Staci Dunn, has been creating beautiful custom cakes and delicious gourmet cupcakes for many years. Following her dreams of owning her own business, Staci and her family opened The Cake Lady custom cake shop in April 2013. A true family business, it is not unusual to find Staci's husband, John, icing cakes in the studio, or either of her son's Tyler or AJ working around the shop.
Formerly a Legal Secretary, self employed Medical Transcriptionist, and 10 year veteran homeschool mom, Staci found baking and scrapbooking to be a good way to relax. After a family friend asked Staci to make a cake for a baby shower, and the successful outcome of that cake, the orders started coming in. Soon thereafter, both sons graduated homeschool high school and she found herself with more free time. Orders were still coming in and Staci opened a licensed Cottage Kitchen, creating one of a kind cakes from her home.
After being phased out of the Medical Transcription industry by technology, the invention of voice recognition software, and outgrowing her kitchen in just 2 short years, the cupcake cafe and custom cake shop opened in beautiful, historic, downtown Fort Pierce. Creating a cheerful atmosphere and handpicking a friendly staff, the shop has become a popular neighborhood bakery. After just a few years, the Cake Lady appeared on The Food Network, has been published in several local, international and cake magazines and won Readers Choice and Wedding Wire’s Couples Choice for several years running.
