Meet the Artist

Karen Seay graduated the acclaimed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY as a certified pastry chef. She toured the United States working with various pastry chefs at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC, The Loews Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX, as well as working in West Palm Beach, FL, Greenwich, CT and New York City.

Working at The Mayflower Hotel, Karen decided to start her own business designing couture wedding cakes for discerning clients who wanted both an artwork in cake while also addressing cultivated gourmet taste. Karen is a seasoned accomplished cake artist, with over 30 years of experience and is still in love with her job! She welcomes any cake challenge and her desire is to surpass your expectations in both taste and art.

At Cakes in Art, only the finest ingredients available in the world are used. The chocolates we use are imported from Belgium, Switzerland and France. The chocolate is made from sustainably grown cocoa beans. As more and more consumers expect authenticity and transparency, they really want to know where their food products come from. We proudly stand behind these chocolate suppliers with the chocolate products we import, such as Callebaut and Valrhona . We have selected a Swiss meringue buttercream as our choice of preference for its unsurpassed taste & stability. Our buttercream is made from 100% butter and never compromised with added shortening. We use only 100% pure vanilla and/or vanilla beans. Each filling we use is made with authentic fruit and actual liqueur’s, not flavored imitation liqueurs.

The cakes on this site have been iced in Swiss Meringue buttercream using Karen's smooth, borderless technique, and although some appear to be covered in fondant they are actually meticulously smoothed in buttercream! (Unless fondant has been requested or necessary for design elements. Dummy cakes used for stylized shoots and bridal shows are also covered in fondant)) Cakes in Art LLC is compliant with all zoning and health regulations. WE NOW OFFER GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS!! ( Not a gluten free environment, but as I am also gluten free, I prepare all of my cakes meticulously to prevent cross contamination.) Read less

Karen with Cakes in Art absolutely blew my wife and I away with our delicious and beautiful wedding cake. Our pumpkin spice peek-a-boo cake was perfect! In choosing which type of cake we wanted, Karen even made a special trip to meet my wife (then fiancé) and I to deliver a piece of her pumpkin spice cake to us to help us decide, since she did not have any on hand during our initial visit. Karen was so helpful in helping us throughout the process figure out our perfect cake, and was even able to provide us with a special cupcake to give to the my father during the reception. We could not recommend Karen and Cakes in Art highly enough!

WHAT A CAKE! We received several compliments about our cake at our wedding. Karen Seay was wonderful to work with! It was hard to choose a cake because her tastings were all so good! We got a dulce de leche style cake, with buttercream frosting....DELICIOUS. Not only did it taste good, it looked like a work of art. We couldn't have asked for more, the cake was exactly how I imagined in my head. Thank you so much Karen, I don't think Josh will be able to wait a whole year to eat the rest of our cake!

Lorena and Josh were a wonderful couple to work with. Lorena's color palette was a beautiful hue of eggplant to soft lavender & cream and her design choice for her cake made me excited to be a part of her wedding! She was so sweet and a joy to design with. I wish Lorena & Josh many blessed years of happiness together.

I'm sorry but this was not a cake.
IT WAS A BEATIFULLY MASTERED WORK OF ART.
I was in shock when I first saw it. The detail, precision and time put into our wedding cake is more than words can describe. It didn't only look good but it tasted amazing.
Thank you Karen for the pleasure of working with you.

We ordered a wedding cake from Cakes in Art, but we did not receive a cake. We received a masterpiece! Our daughter wanted a princess wedding so we worked with Karen to come up with the perfect cake. What princess wouldn't want a pillow cake? After sending Karen the picture of what we wanted and giving her the option to create the perfect cake, she went over and above all our expectations! It was almost a sin to have to eat it. But we did and the look of the outside was only made that much better by the taste of the inside!

We would highly recommend Cakes in Art for any wedding event or special event!

Karen was such a help in creating our cake. She created a gorgeous cake with buttercream frosting, instead of fondant. She worked well with our florist to get the same flowers from our wedding flowers to add to the cake. The cake was the best that I have ever had at a wedding! Karen was extremely affordable and we were able to rent a cake stand from her. From the moment we met Karen, she made the choice extremely easy!
