Dana Blanton is the proud new owner of The Sweet City Cupcakes bakery in historic St. Augustine Florida;
A dream she says she has had for years.
While taking art classes in college and working at Publix, she decided to try her hand at baking and found her true talent and passion in the bakery, creating edible works of art. Seeing the pure joy on her customers’ faces when they bite into one of her creative confections, for her makes it all worthwhile.
After working alongside the former Sweet City owner, Nicole Stewart, for close to two years, Stewart proposed to Blanton that she buy the bakery and make it her own. Blanton is incredibly excited for this new dream-fulfilling adventure.
Drawing on her 18 years of experience, she is always coming up with new recipes and creations. She pulls inspiration not only from her clients wishes but also from the world around her. Keeping conscious of special dietary needs and local and seasonal products, her masterful hands create delicious works of art that almost look too good to eat.
