At a very young age Sam asked her mother for not one, but two TastyBake ovens and from that point on it was easy to see that baking would be her passion. Getting to live her dream in the extremely demanding realm of The Cake Artist with such a small staff is easier said than done most days. Sam, 20, has an extremely steady hand and a great eye for detail which makes piping her specialty. Vinny relies on her craftsmanship and creativity daily. Because of her boundless sense of humor, she has also developed into the comedian of the shop, keeping Vinny and the other girls from throwing in the towel when things get stressful.
