Meet Sam: “Filming S.I. Cakes Was a Once in a Lifetime Experience”

Hi! I’m Sam and I’m a cake decorator at the Cake Artist. Piping has become my area of expertise, but I also love making cartoon figures and sugar flowers. We may have fights and stupid little arguments from time to time, but I really do love working at the store with the girls and Vin. I’ve been working at the Cake Artist for the past 2 years and I really have grown there. I’ve been able to develop a bunch of different techniques thanks to Vin giving us the freedom to try a little bit of everything. Still, making buttercream is never fun. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Filming S.I. Cakes was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Two years ago when I was working for Vin, I would never have guessed we would end up doing it in front of cameras. I just wish I didn’t have to appear on a national television show wearing a cupcake costume that made me look so ridiculous. That had to be the highlight of the season for me. Seeing Vin put that hilarious cupcake costume on in the store was priceless. I hope everyone enjoys the show as much as I did making it!
