This is owner of Stuffed Cakes Donna Lawson. The company is cupcakes but so much more. The company makes custom cakes and more baked goods for all sorts of occasions. They celebrated their 2nd year as a company and first anniversary in their retail space on Nov. 3.

UPDATE- SLIDESHOW Stuffed Cakes celebrates one year with a party Nov. 3

While Stuffed Cakes, the specialty baking company, has been around the community for more than a year, it was just 12 months ago that they moved into a retail space at 9003 35th Ave SW (near 35th and Henderson) and began offering their products for retail sales.

As the West Seattle Herald reported back then, It was an evolutionary step for Donna Lawson and company who have slowly grown the business from custom cakes, to an online presence at www.stuffedcakes.com to the now successful retail outlet.

They celebrated their one year anniversary in retail and their 2nd birthday on Saturday, November 3rd.

Lawson said that surprisingly up to half of their business is now from walk in trade. She also noted that while the business has a large West Seattle following, many of her customers are coming from Bellevue, Issaquah and other neighboring communities. She's typically booked out three to four weeks in advance with custom orders.

They had free mini cupcakes for the first 250 people and face painting (by Ryans Face and Body Art), and you can enter to win a FREE Stuffed Cakes cake, T-Shirts and other prizes from local merchants.

"We have the most amazing customers," Lawson said," and we love them as much as they love us."
