The bakery will occupy an “expanded retail space” in the 135-acre mixed-use development in south Forsyth when it opens this summer, according to a press release.
Amie Pagan started It’s a Sweet Life in 2009 out of her home but later opened a location on Peachtree Parkway where she makes a variety of baked goods.
Pagan has specialized in making “high-end specialty cakes” for weddings, corporate events and other social gatherings. The bakery also makes cupcakes, cookies and candies and offers sugar- and gluten-free options.
Pagan’s work has been featured on television, according to the press release, and was recently inducted into The Knot’s Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.
“The cornerstone of our business is providing our clientele with exceptional custom cakes with unmatched service,” Pagan said in a statement. “Our relocation to Halcyon will bolster our ability to continue offering one-of-a-kind creations to the growing Atlanta event market.”
It’s a Sweet Life joins a healthy list of retailers already signed on at Halycon, the $370 million project that mixes commercial, retail and residential development near the Big Creek Greenway at exit 12 off of Ga. 400.
Once completed, Halcyon will include 480,000 square feet of office and retail space, 230 homes, 460 apartments, two hotels, a movie theater, dog park, green space and trailhead for the Big Creek Greenway.
