Ruth Rickey is a former attorney and administrative law judge. She fell in love with cakes and became manager of an upscale grocery store in Oklahoma City. After 5 years, she was named top Bakery Manager for IGA’s 3200 stores in 31 countries and knew that it was time to open her own shop.
Ruth opened Ruth’s Sweete Justice Bakery in 2000 and ran it until December of 2011. The bakery was widely respected as one of the top sweets providers in Oklahoma. Ruth closed the shop in order to focus on teaching – her true passion. Since January, 2012, Ruth has been teaching all over the US and Canada and, in 2013, will be all over the world.
Ruth is an ICES Certified Master Sugar Artist. Ruth has been seen on WE TV’s Wedding Cake Wars (her team won), twice on TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off (assistant to Pat Jacoby on two wins) and on three specials on The Food Network about The Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show.
