Debby Fuller said everything is from fondant to filling is customizable and made in-house at the bakery, which is located just doors down from Dot’s Supermarket.

Their baked goods were in demand. The shop is the result. 

“We’ve been decorating cakes for a long, long time for friends and family and just had more and more people asking us to do things,” Debby Fuller said. “And we get to do it with family.”

The bakery specializes in sugar, its owners joked. 

It can handle anything from cake pops and cookies to five-tiered wedding cakes and the 10-foot-long cake dragon Collins-Smith made for an Asian Pacific islander month celebration at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. 

Simply Decadent is also able to make vegan and gluten-free treats.
