Lucie Shelton is the owner of Cakes to Die For in downtown Frederick. She was born and raised in downtown Frederick and wanted to make her dream of owning a bakery come true in her hometown. Lucie’s love for baking started out through her admiration of her mom’s baking, even if it was from a box mix. She wanted to be just like her mom! One thing people don’t know about Lucie and her love for cake decorating and baking is that she was a self-taught cake decorator until 2012.
Lucie has been in the cake baking and decorating business for 15 years but just opened up her own bakery, Cakes to Die For about a year ago. After going away for college she wanted to come home, and decided to open up her business here in downtown Frederick.
She loves the downtown Frederick community and she loves baking cakes. Lucie loves collaborating with other downtown businesses and baking cakes for customers because it allows her to help bring their ideas to life. It is extremely inspiring for her to see people interested in her business.
