The Cake Lady moves to downtown area

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 pastry bag tips. “A little bit of everything when it comes to baking,” Randy Schultz said.

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

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

The store hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call 217-330-9997.
