The Cake Lady is moving downtown

Randy Schultz and his wife Nancy purchased the former Cake Lady Supply store on Eldorado in the summer of 2021. In September, they moved it to 160 W. Wood St. in Decatur.

They specialize in baking supplies, including chocolates, various decorative sprinkles, cake and candy molds, and tips for pastry bags. “A bit of everything when it comes to baking,” says Randy Schultz.

The products are used by professional and amateur bakers. “We love to answer all of them,” Schultz said.

The couple purchased the inventory last year after former owner Sue Clark passed away. Schultz admits they are not professional bakers. “We just wanted a different challenge,” he said.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 217-330-9997.
