Founded in 2008 as Pickett Pastries, Shellane Pickett along with her mother, Veronica and sister, Erica, went on a mission to create delicious, quality, custom cakes for family and friends. As months went by, the demand for custom cakes grew and Apple-Butter Bakery & Custom Cake Shoppe was formed to serve the Metro-Atlanta area. ABC Cake Shoppe proudly serves custom cakes, cupcakes, cake trouffles, candies, and pies to the Metro-Atlanta community

Shellane Pickett is the owner and founder of the Atlanta based business, Apple Butter Bakery. Better known as Apple Butter Bakery Custom Cake Shoppe, or ABC Cake Shoppe, this young woman is really building a buzz around town. With some of the most detailed and original designs, she has a long list of orders to fill and a full kitchen each week. She designs novelty cakes to look like your favorite Gucci heel or Prada bag, specialty cakes for music artists, and the most beautiful bridal cakes for that special occasion.
