Liz and team at Artisan cake company made our wedding cake experience a super memorable one and created a wedding cake like no other! With sugar peonies encircling our three tier cake and vintage lace detailing lining each layer (Seriously, how do that do it?!) They create art, sculpture, love and deliciousness and made us light up with smiles when we first cut our cake together. A total joy of a moment. We are still hearing compliments and highly recommend Artisan Cake company for your next event!

My fiancé suprised me with a cake from here yesterday for our 5th anniversary. When the cake came out my jaw dropped! It depicted a scene of us kayaking and the detail was amazing. The figures looked so much like us, I thought they were made of clay! I was so impressed at how the cake seemed to capture our spirits. When it was time to cut into the cake I shed a little tear because it felt like I was cutting into a piece of art. Now, I would have been completely forgiving if the cake didn't taste good, I mean the thing is beautiful. But to my suprise and delight, it tasted AMAZING. The frosting was light, the cake had a addictive consistency. This was an amazing cake through and through. It made our anniversary celebration so much more memorable.

WOW! Liz of Artisan Cake Company made a cake for my anniversary and I couldn't have been more thrilled with the attention to detail and level of precision. Using entirely edible materials and fondant (which is normally strange tasting but in her case was delicious), she created an adorable scene of something we that is very meaningful in my relationship, complete with realistic characters. Every detail was there, right down to the little white crests on the waves and the color of our eyes. Based on how detailed it was, I would have been forgiving if it didn't taste good, but instead, it was incredibly DELICIOUS!! The cake was amazing. Fluffy, not too sugary, completely luscious!! She created expert layering that left the cake looking perfect after several hours out of the fridge, even on a hot day. This made my special day so much more memorable. I will absolutely count on Artisan Cake Company to make my next celebratory cake!!

We were so excited to hire Liz, her portfolio was amazing and the cakes tasted fabulous, except our wedding cake. It was the driest cake I have ever had. It just crumbled, like it was days old. I was embarrassed cause we really ranted and raved about how wonderful our cake was going to be. I know she has a lot on her plate and I guess ours was pushed to the side. For the money we paid it kind of broke my heart. I would still recommend Liz, I think my experience was a fluke and I wish her all the best.

It's rare in today's world to meet someone who is an artist through and through and who is dedicated to their craft. But Liz is a true artisan...an old world professional with so much knowledge and experience to share. If somebody asked me for recommendation as to who could make him a cake that would never be forgotten, I would recommend Liz.

We contacted Liz when we knew that we wanted a cake shaped like a bust of Ludwig van Beethoven. We are both musicians and many of Beethoven's loving words to his immortal beloved were included in our wedding. It seemed like a perfect idea, and Liz made it come to life. We met with her soon after I contacted her and we told her our ideas ahead of time. She had done research and already had ideas when we had our meeting, which we loved. We could really see she was passionate about her work. The morning of our wedding she arrived even before we did and the cake was already on display. We could not believe it. It looked just like him; scowl and everything. He was perfect. And he was absolutely delicious :) Everyone was very impressed. We would definitely do business with her again. It was a joy. Thanks, Liz! You rock! Just like Beethoven!

I absolutely loved working with Elizabeth of Artisan Cake Company. She was extremely prompt in responding to my many inquiries and was easy to work with even though I was planning from a distance. At the cake tasting, I felt like I was chatting with an old friend and she seemed to understand right away just what we were looking for. The cake was absolutely delicious and our guests couldn't believe that the beautiful succulent plants on it weren't real!
Artisan Cake Company offers an incredible range of flavors that were all amazing and Elizabeth seemed happy to do any custom combinations I might want. Her work is exquisite and she is a joy to work with!

I like cake just as much as the next guy but when I decided to get married I knew I wanted something special. I contacted Artisan Cake Company and Liz said she could help me with my cake needs. My (now) wife and I gave her very little direction about what we wanted, but told her we were going for a fall themed wedding. When Liz walked through the door we were absolutely blown away by the cake and the cupcakes.

The cake was a work of art, especially the custom made toppers proudly perched on top of the moist fondant. Each cupcake held a beautifully crafted sugar leaf that was so detailed and realistic many of the guests asked if they were safe to eat!

Not only were the cake and cupcakes nice to look at, they were the best tasting wedding cake/cupcakes my taste buds have ever touched. We chose carrot cake for our wedding cake and it did not disappoint.

Throughout the entire process Liz was cool, calm and professional. She knew what she was doing and exuded her skill with extreme confidence. Communication was open, honest and clear and we had little doubt of anything going awry with the cake.

Months later family and friends are still talking about the work of art that was our wedding cake. We are completely satisfied and thrilled with Artisan Cake Company's work. I'm not a polygamist so I am saddened I cannot order more wedding cakes for my eyes to behold and my mouth to eat. Instead I have taken to celebrating little known holidays. Yesterday was national desk day, time for a cake! Next week is International Clip Your Toenails Day, time for a cake!

No matter the event, holiday, season or reason; Artisan Cake Company has a cake for you.
