Specialty Cakes has announced the retail location will close as of Oct. 31, unless the business is sold to a new owner prior to that. However, owner Tammy Mullins says she plans to continue making wedding cakes out of her home in Pawnee.

Mullins has owned Specialty Cakes for 14 years and operated out of the distinctive pink 3200 square foot building on Wabash, located behind Famous Liquors, for the past six years.

In a recent Facebook post, Mullins said, “After careful consideration I have made a decision to put Specialty Cakes up for sale publicly. I own the building as well so both building and business are for sale. If you know of someone looking please share with them. Reasonable offers will be considered.”

Mullins says that since announcing the sale of the business, she has been busier than ever, with many requests from long-time customers who want one last cake.  “I’m getting old. It’s time to scale back and have a little bit slower lifestyle,” she said with a laugh.
