Uhrick is surprised at success of gourds in her life

Decatur resident Sandy Uhrick has spent much of her life in the decorating business, especially in cake decorations. Early on, she decorated cakes for Maloley’s grocery in Fort Wayne, one of the best-known food chains in the city in the 1950s and 60s. Years ago, the famous chain that was constantly competing with Scott’s faded away from the business world.
