WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Only nine months after taking over, the new owner of Cameo Cakes is selling the business.

The new owner has owned the business since Jan. 1 and was trained by the previous owner until February.

Candi Rockett, the new owner of Cameo Cakes, revealed that she would be selling the business due to medical reasons in a Facebook post on Monday, Oct. 24.

It breaks my heart but unfortunately due to some underlying medical issues, I will need to be selling the bakery. I love this place and all of the people that have helped and put their heart and soul into this place to make it so successful. Please feel free to contact us or stop by with any inquiries. We will keep running as normal and will continue to take orders and run as though nothing is happening. We hope to keep this legacy going in Wichita for many years to come. XOXO😘

Cameo Cakes was sold to Rockett in January after the previous owner, Vicki Prather, was overcome by her Rheumatoid Arthritis and Raynaud’s, making it hard for her to get the job done as well as she’d like.

Cameo Cakes has been in business since 1967.
