Tell us about yourself

LaTanya is no “new cookie” to the baking world. She comes from a long line of southern cooks. She spent many years making scratch cakes for her friends and co-workers. In 2009, she decided it was time to share the sweetness with others but this time--as a business. Pink Piggy Sweets® was officially opened in 2010. LaTanya was a systems engineer by day and the “trot” behind Pink Piggy Sweets at night. After 18 years as a Systems Engineer, LaTanya was recently laid off from work and now she can "trot" at full speed doing what she loves to do best--baking!

What is your favorite type of cupcake?

LaTanya’s favorite cupcake is a good plain ‘ole vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream.
