The first time I heard about the "Thang" is it's known locally, it was love at first bite. Sweet potato pie is amazing in it's own right, but once Nikki J put her touch on it and dropped it on a graham cracker crust it was GAME over.

Nikki J., confectioner and cake master at Absolutely Edible Cakes, had never made a sweet potato pie when a customer requested one in 2003. Instead of refusing the order, she set about experimenting in the kitchen…and came up with a new and modern twist on the sweet potato pie – a creamy and velvety filling with a hint of real vanilla encased in a perfect graham cracker crust. With her customers pining for more, their “where is that thang?” queries eventually gave her creation a name. And so the legend of the “Sweet Potato Thang” was born, which today reigns as her signature pie as well as a local favorite.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Nikki J's creations have been featured on the Food Network, TLC, People Magazine, Good Morning Texas, Good Day Dallas, The Judge Mathis Show and publications as far away as the United Kingdom.
