Meet Halee Lopez of Sugar. by Halee Cake Company in North Fort Worth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Halee Lopez.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Halee. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started Sugar. by Halee Cake Company in my tiny apartment kitchen with just a hand mixer, my grandmother’s recipes and a big dream. I am a one-woman show and proof that with a little determination (and a lot less sleep) you can truly do anything. Today I have clients across Texas and into parts of Oklahoma.

Has it been a smooth road?
Not at all. I would say making time for my business has been the biggest struggle so far. I have 2 children, ages 3 and 4 months, who need my attention all day so 99% of business happens after bedtime! Night after night I find myself up working until 5 or 6 am to complete orders. I absolutely love baking and I would not change a thing! Who really needs sleep anyways?

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a one-woman show. I pride myself in being able to provide beautiful and affordable custom cakes that taste great! I specialize in buttercream wedding cakes, but I absolutely love working with fondant and modeling chocolate. I think the fact that I can work with many different edible materials and continue to grow as a baker/decorator sets me apart from others who don’t like stepping out of their comfort zones. I have met many bakers in the area who refuse to make fondant cakes.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Absolutely! Dallas has so many amazing vendors who love taking new business owners under their wing and giving them helpful tips and advice. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without them!
