About Me

Hello! My name is Amanda Wickens, and I’m the cake enthusiast behind “Cakes by Amanda.” ​ I run a home bakery located in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts that specializes in a variety of customized sweets.

As a young girl, I always gravitated towards the kitchen, constantly standing on a stool just itching to help my mom bake whatever was on the menu. Since then, not much has changed!

I graduated from Rivier University in 2017 with a bachelors in elementary education, and nowadays I spend my time teaching children that reading can be as fun as you make it! I absolutely love being in the classroom, but my second passion sparked on Father’s Day three years ago when I baked a cake for my dad. Cake decorating was just one of those things that once I started…I couldn’t stop!

Since that day, I have never looked back. Being a self taught baker has taught me that practice really does make perfect, and how important it is to take pride in your growth. I specialize in a wide assortment of sweets for various occasions, and I am always determined to make sure that your special occasion is as sweet as the cake on the table!
