Andra Hall is the owner and creative force behind CamiCakes, LLC. CamiCakes is a chain of gourmet cupcake boutiques which originated in Jacksonville, FL. In 2013, Andra extended the brand to incorporate ice cream and formed CamiCakes Creamery. CamiCakes LLC is headquartered in Atlanta, GA with current southeast expansion.
Andra Hall began her career in Florida State Government and eventually transitioned into Corporate America where she worked successfully for several years until a life changing experience. At the tender age of 1, Andra's only child, Camille, was sent to the hospital for a simple procedure which resulted in unconsciousness and admission to the ICU. Surviving the scare, many doctor appointments and hospital stays followed. Andra made the decision to leave Corporate America and care for her daughter full time. During this time, Andra did some soul searching and realized that baking was a constant in her life. Learned at the age of 7 with her Easy Bake oven, Andra was quite the avid baker.
Armed with her Grandmothers advice, "It's best to do one thing and do it really well," and equipped with her Mama's knack for baking, Andra launched CamiCakes, LLC which is named after her greatest inspiration, her daughter Camille.
