All cakes are custom designed for each client.

I love creating one of a kinds and the classics equally! Each component is made from scratch in our kitchen for your cake.

Our recipes start with fresh butter, flour, eggs, cream and sugar. I use Callebaut chocolate, fine liqueurs, fresh nuts, and local fruit. All eggs are from local farms many from my own hens.

As a chef, my goal is for your cake to be among the best you've ever eaten.

Below are my most popular cake, filling and buttercream options.

Many clients have fun creating  their own combination. Please ask if you are looking for something you don't see here... chances are I can make it happen. perhaps I'll even name one for you.

Scheduling a Tasting

I love meeting clients and tasting cake! I offer a flexible tasting schedule to accommodate each person’s needs. Let me know a bit about your schedule and I can suggest some dates and times. Tastings take about an hour and are $40.00. Meeting without a tasting are my treat.

For the tasting, you can choose 3 cakes, 3 fillings, 3 buttercreams and we can mix and match to find the perfect combination. If you already have a flavor combination that you are set on, I am happy to make one small assembled cake instead.  Please let me know if you have any allergies or strong dislikes as I sometimes can bring extras! This is a great time to bring any photos or design items/ideas that you have.

If you would like to have a cupcake tasting, pick 3 cakes and 3 icings and we can mix up the combinations. For a pie tasting, you can choose 2 types. Often I will make mini pies for the tastings, but will try to do full size if requested as the filling to crust ratio is different!
