Nancy Sepe, Cake Artist and owner of Nancy’s Fancies, started decorating cakes when she was only 13 years old. She is mostly self-taught, but has taken many lessons with decorators including; Diane Paglia, Kerry Vincent, and Nicholas Lodge. Nancy opened her store front on Federal Hill in 2007 with her four daughters Nina, Nikki, Talia, and Mia. The cupcake portion of her business was originally created so that brides could taste cake flavors anytime. Nancy’s Fancies was the first store created where customers could watch their cupcakes being made. This unique idea allows people to choose their flavor, filling, and topping to satisfy their whims.
