where couture cake and art meet with limitless possibilities 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 they 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 did my wedding cake and it was both gorgeous and incredibly tasty! I brought Karen three separate pictures showing the different elements I wanted and she understood everything with just one conversation. She also said the number of guests we were having was in between two tier sizes so she made it larger than we ordered just to make sure we had enough. Even with an oversized cake, every single piece got eaten and multiple people came up to say they had two slices. Karen did an exceptional job with our cake!

This cake was delicious. I had a unique cake topper which really made the cake stand out. Karen did an excellent job, I just wish we had ordered a smaller cake because we had T-O-N-S of left overs which in the end was wasted money. I will definitely be recommending her to friends who are future brides.

Karen did a beautiful job on our wedding cake- it was truly unique. Not only did it look great, but it was delicious as well! My husband is not a cake fan and even he enjoyed a piece. Karen was easy to work with and open to ideas. She was very personable when we met for a cake tasting and very fairly priced. Very pleased with everything!

My oldest Daughter was married on 6/7/08 and Cakes by Karen did her wedding cake. The cake was beautiful and was the most favorable wedding cake I've ever eaten. We've been to a number of weddings in the past 2 years and not one has had a cake with the wonderful flavor and texture that Karen's cakes had. Daughter number 2 may be planning her wedding soon ... I'll be calling Karen to design her cake too!
