Where Baking and Design Come Together...



Kakes by Karen, established in 2004, was started by Karen M. Vazquez with the help of her husband, Ricardo, and their family. The company is located off Old 41 inside North Collier Industrial Park in North Naples, FL.

"We pride ourselves in making hand elaborated, custom-made cakes that are never frozen nor refrigerated, providing our customers a promise of freshness."

We specialize in baking and designing cakes for every special occasion that are decorated in high quality, glycerin free, delicious rolled fondant.

Each cake is designed separately, working with the client, using only fresh ingredients to ensure quality. Some of our designs have been influenced and inspired by techniques learned from international chefs, as well as various judges and Food Network Cake Challenge winners. Both traditional and contemporary techniques are used to accomplish your dream cake.

I really don't know where to start so I will just do the best I can. My wife and I decided to have a Halloween wedding, or Hallowedding as we called it. She planned every detail and chose all the props etc. She told me about Kakes by Karen and said she wanted the cake to be made there because Karen and her staff were the best in the business. I agreed to check it out and then she convinced me to go to the tasting with her. I am glad I did, the staff and Karen herself are awesome very friendly people. BUT the cake, WOW, I literally was in cake heaven. I liked it so much I even helped choose our 4 flavors. I also ate most of the samples myself. Now the design. I was honestly worried even after seeing the beautiful cakes they make. My wife literally sketched a cake on paper, they discussed details and colors and other things I can't even imagine. Then somehow Karen and her team took that sketch, and conversation and turned it into one of the coolest, best tasting custom cakes I have ever seen or ate. We had around 125 guests and they loved that cake so much that it is still being talked about a week later, and I mean design , taste, details , color , everyone is as amazed as we are. Kakes by Karen made my wifes dream cake and that to me was worth way more than it actually cost. *But I loved it too ! Thank you Karen & staff, I know all the custom work you had to do. So for me, I'd rate you higher if they would let me. Russ Peppard

I can't say enough about Karen and her staff! I went in for the cake tasting and I felt right at home. She was in the kitchen so another staff member held the tasting but Karen made coffee for my mom and I and sat and talked with us. The cake was amazing first of all and her designs are gorgeous! She pays so much attention to detail and from talking with her I can tell she absolutely loves making stunning and delicious cakes for her clients :)

Courtney and Karen did our wedding cake and cupcakes. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. All of the cupcakes looked and tasted fantastic! They were also wonderful to work with. Their excellent communication made everything go smoothly. Extremely friendly and professional throughout the entire process and very easy to coordinate with.

Courtney was so helpful and wonderful over the phone. She made the process so smooth especially because we were organizing from long distance. From the moment I sent the picture of the cake to the time that it was delivered, (by Karen herself), I was totally blown away by the end product and all the extras they included. They went above and beyond our expectations. I can't thank them enough for making my niece's wedding an awesome event.

Karen was literally and figuratively our sweetest vendor! She’s so artistically talented and her cakes are delicious. My new husband and I can’t wait until next year when we get to enjoy our top tier again! :D
Karen and Courtney were so easy to communicate and plan with. I absolutely LOVED my five-tier design we ended up settling on. The four cake and icing flavors had to be delicious based on how quickly my 90 guests ate everything; I only got to try one flavor!
Karen delivered and placed the flowers provided by my event designer on the cake the day of my wedding. Everything went so smoothly. My aunt raved at how sweet Karen was.
I didn’t actually get to see the cake until I walked into the reception area after the ceremony, after everyone else was already eating. It was gorgeous and was most certainly the highlight of my reception! Thank you so much, Karen! It was everything I wanted!

Wedding 5/21/16-We booked with Kakes by Karen through the Marco Beach Ocean Resort. We ordered both a traditional wedding cake and a groom's cake. They both came out absolutely perfect. The groom's cake went along with his Maker's Mark/Bourbon theme and was a hit. Everyone absolutely loved the bourbon bottle and barrel, they didn't even look like a cake. We highly recommend Kakes by Karen. They were very professional and extremely nice. They responded to emails within 24 hours and let us stop by any time we were in town planning (we planned from Pittsburgh). The cake tasting was a lot of fun, we highly recommend doing a tasting before selecting your cake!

Designing and ordering our wedding cake was a breeze with Kakes by Karen! I was able to do the whole thing by email and they even made a take-home tasting for us to fit our busy schedules! We got to taste the DELICIOUS cakes at home at our leisure. I never doubted that the cake would turn out beautiful or that they wouldn't quite get the design we were looking for because the communication was easy. The day of, our cake showed up and it was gorgeous! The cake was phenomenal and I know everybody else enjoyed it too!

Holy moly, amazing cake! Kakes by Karen made a beautiful, three-tier almond/red velvet/guava, light blue wedding cake with shell accents. It was wonderful to look at and absolutely delicious. Courtney in the office was great with questions and explaining the whole decision process. They have so many flavor and filling options - it’s a little overwhelming! But they help you navigate the process and I couldn’t be happier with our decision!
