Welcome to Our "Kake Boutique",

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.

Please do not hesitate to e-mail us if you do not find what you are looking for in this website...We also work in a variety of flavors not displayed here.

Thank you for your visit and...

Enjoy! Read less

Karen designed our wedding cake, and it was exactly what I had envisioned. It was as delicious as it was beautiful. Karen and her team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. If you have the opportunity to take part in a cake tasting, I would highly recommend it. It was such a neat experience, and Karen was so informative. Who knew there were so many choices! I was so looking forward to the cake at our wedding that I made sure to find a few minutes to eat a piece. :) Thank you, Karen!

We can not say enough great things about Karen and her sister. After months and months of planning we finally got to meet them at their adorable studio to pick up our grooms cake (which was not only creative but WONDERFUL). Then on the day of the wedding we were presented with a beautiful cake. The attention to all of the details was above and beyond our expectations. We can't wait to go back to Florida for our 1 year anniversary and have another cake!!

Karen did our rehearsal cake and wedding cake and both were incredible. Not only were they both works of art but the best tasting cakes I've had (and I am not a cake person). Along with our wedding, we continue to get compliments on our cake choices. There is reason why Karen and her team continue to grace the covers of magazines with their work.

Our cake tasting was so private and absolutely adorable!! We walked into Karen's studio and it was just the perfect setting for cake tasting and wedding excitement! Karen is a sweetheart with so much talent!! The cake flavors and fillings were absolutely delicious! Tons of variety as well! We selected the style after consulting with Karen and staff via email. The finished product blew us away! When I saw our cake I was shocked with it's beauty and how much it captured our day! The carrot cake was so delicious and a big hit! Karen also makes you a mini cake to replicate your cake on your 1 year anniversary, so no worries on the freezer cake- you get fresh delicious one!! If you want your cake to be beautiful, represent love, and taste amazing you have come to the right place!
