    Sam

    Bakery Manager
    Sam D., aka "Sam I am," aka "S-Factor," aka "The Viper" in certain Yakuza circles, has been an important team member rising up the bakery ranks & now runs our kitchen with a precision sharper than her droll & sardonic wit. Her unique insight & flare for flavor has provided many delectable delights for our ever growing customer base to enjoy. She's truly the keystone at the apex of the Team ADC arch!

    Sara

    Assistant Baker/Designer
    Daughter of the head honcho & a rising star in the decorating world, this young designer has already busted into the cake world with 1st & 2nd placing's at both junior & professional levels! When she's not crowd surfing the web for ideas she's at the bakery drawing up her own. It's quite obvious that the lingonberry doesn't fall far from the tree as her eye for color, placement, & design are all tops.
