About Us

Troy and Niqua Wheatley are the husband and wife team behind Cake'D By Niqua, an online bakery in Laurel, MD. Niqua and Troy are natives of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, proudly serving the Washington D.C. area. Niqua is a baker and cake decorator and Troy manages the business' day to day operations and deliveries. Niqua grew up in the kitchen watching her grandmother bake.  Her first real experience with cake decorating came in October of 2013 when she created a monster cake and cupcakes for their son's 2nd birthday Halloween party. This experience sparked an interest and she fell in love with cake decorating.  Niqua's work has been featured on Satin Ice Fondant's cake blog several times and has also been published in Cake Masters Magazine and Cake Central Magazine.  Niqua can be seen as a competitor showcasing her talent on Food Network's Cupcake Championship.
