Baker Finds Niche in Divorce Cakes

Texas baker Suzanne Maxwell built her "Lovin' Oven Bakery" on wedding cakes, but in the past few years she's been delving into divorce cakes.

Maxwell developed the concept with the help of a customer.

"She said I really want a wedding cake, but I'm getting a divorce," Maxwell explained.

And so it began...tiered flour and sugar monuments to celebrate matrimonial meltdown.

While the happily married Maxwell has made thousands of wedding cakes over the years, she's happy to report she's only done a few dozen divorce cakes.

She likes to think of it as a small slice of heaven for customers who say they've  been through hell.

Maxwell says she's only had one man order a divorce cake.

All the other requests have been from women.
