Proud of East Texas: Heavenly Honeybun Cakes

Proud of East Texas: Heavenly Honeybun Cakes

By Joan Hallmark

Jacqueline and John Samples opened Heavenly Honeybun Cakes in Tyler a year and a half ago. Their success was instant, and soon, they had opportunities to sell their products on a national home shopping network. But in December of 2010, their world changed when their eight year old son Jordan was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.

The prognosis for Jordan wasn't good. Doctors at Childrens' Medical Center in Dallas said at first that the tumor was inoperable. In spite of dire predictions, most of the tumor was removed at Childrens', followed by radiation at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler. Jordan has recovered from his medical emergency and is back in school. Heavenly Honeybun Cakes is booming once again.

The products are available at Fresh by Brookshires, at selected Walmart Stores, and by order at 903-595-2425.
