In 2010, Lafayette Natives and UL at Lafayette Alumni, Dustin and Jennifer
Melancon, decided to bring their own concept of a bakery to Lafayette in
the form of a Cupcakery (a bakery specializing in cupcakes). Before they
knew it, Sophi P. Cakes was born and helped push the cupcake
craze in Acadiana.

Trained by World Renowned Pastry Chefs, Jennifer brings to the table her
expertise mixed with a unique and non-traditional twist, which can be
found in their product. Dustin's background in Marketing, Restaurants, and
Skateboarding, mixed with a Punk Attitude and General Shenanigans,
brings a certain somethin' somethin' that really ties the business together.
