Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Prices start at $3.00 per serving for a fully decorated buttercream cake with buttercream filling. Add $.25- $1.25 per serving for jams, mousses, creams and fresh fruit fillings. Sugar work is an additional charge such as gumpaste flowers, fondant ribbons, bows etc. Prices start at $5.00 per serving for fondant cakes with the same additional charges. $40 local delivery fee. Limited extended delivery with an additional charge.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
No. The top tier is never included in your price or serving count. It is your free anniversary cake.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
Definately! Bring your ideas and swatches! I love to work with the brides to create something stunning and unique!
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
Imported cocoa. Fresh cream. Seasonal fresh fruit. Canolli filling is made with cream not cheese. 
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
Cakes are baked on Thursday, decorated Friday and delivered Saturday. For Friday weddings, the cakes are baked on Thursday.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
Depends on the work involved. Usually one to three. We are NOT a production bakery. All cakes are custom made with stunning detail work that takes a lot of time to make.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Yes, but I do recommend sugar flowers since I am a sugar artist. If the bride prefers fresh flowers, the florist is responsible for placing them on the cake. I will contact the florist the week of the wedding to coordinate.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
Gold and silver cake stands are available for a $50 rental fee. I do not, however, rent out a stand if I am not making the cake.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
$40 local delivery fee. I will deliver outside of the local area for an additional charge but with limitations.

Laura made the most beautiful wedding cake for our wedding. Choosing a wedding cake was one of the hardest decisions for us. We were so picky about the taste of a cake and we really wanted one that our guests would enjoy eating. When we tasted Laura's cake, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. It was so incredibly moist and the fresh fruit was delicious. Not only that, but the cake she designed for us was exactly what we've always wanted. It was hand decorated in all lace and you knew that so many hours were dedicated to the design. I got so many compliments from our guests that it was one of the most beautiful cakes they've ever seen at a wedding. Laura was so easy to work with and really wanted to make us happy. We were able to give her our cake toppers ahead of time with no problem at all. If you're looking for a cake that both looks and tastes amazing, definitely get it form Laura!

Laura made an absolutely stunning cake for us. It was truly a work of art and fit our theme and colors perfectly. The sugar flowers were magnificent. We provided some pictures from pinterest as inspiration and the cake turned out even better than we could have imagined. It was also delicious and leftovers 6 days later were still delicious and moist. All of our guests raved about how good the cake was. Laura was so great to work with. We were on a limited budget and she helped us get the most bang for our buck by suggesting areas to save versus areas to splurge. SHe was very helpful, personable, and responsive. I highly recommend her!

My husband surprised me with our cake and I couldn't be more pleased. I heard nothing but good things about Laura and the whole process. I also heard that this was the first time she ever had just a groom come to pick out the cake! What can I say, I like to do things differently! The cake was delicious and looked simply beautiful, simple yet elegant. Laura hand made several Stem Dyed Blue Orchid flower heads to trickle down the side of 4 diamond tiers. Amazing! Thank you so much!

Laura was referred to us by our florist. The second we met with her i knew i wanted her to do our wedding cake. Not only was her talent outstanding, but she was also extremely professional and personable. She was so easy to work with,so enthusiastic had so many great ideas and was open to anything. You could really tell she has a love and passion for what she does, so i felt secure and knew i wouldn't have to worry about a thing. Not only do her cakes look amazing but they taste amazing too. They are rich with flavor and moist, not dry like some cakes can be. She also did the cake for our wedding shower. We had gotten so many compliments from people about how good it tasted and how beautiful it was, and they were all talking about how they couldn't wait to see what our wedding cake would look like. Which of course they were all amazed by that too. People couldn't stop raving again on the presentation and taste! I would recommend her to anybody without hesitation.

Let me just say I cannot wait for our one year anniversary...we get more cake by Laura!!!!

For starters, she takes great care in what she does. And it shows in her work. She is a true artist, and capable of doing anything. The sugar flowers she made, even in the professional close up photographs, look real! Our guests didn't even know they were edible! Her buttercream is delicious and fluffy...and best of all, she applies it so impeccably you'd think it was fondant.

Furthermore, her cakes are fresh fresh fresh! She guarantees that the frosting is made that day, the cake is soooooo moist and every flavor is delicious.

If you want excellent quality and a hassle free experience (what bride doesnt?) see Laura! You won't be disappointed!

I found Laura at a bridal show. One taste of the samples she brought and we were hooked. I wanted a cake that actually tasted good rather than the same old dry or tasteless cakes I've had at almost every other wedding. We told her that we wanted a less traditionally decorated cake. We wanted a big fudgey chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream and chocolate mousse filling. It was fabulous. You could smell the chocolate a mile away and it was absolutely beautiful to boot with big chocolate fondant ribbons. Delicious!! People went out of their way to say they loved the cake and have asked for her name. She's super easy to work with and has lots of ideas. She helped me find the look I wanted and I just left the rest in her hands. It could not possibly have been better.

We upgraded the cake to accomodate our larger guest list, and by the end of the wedding, still ALL of the cake was gone! We had bridesmaids that were so busy dancing, they didn't even get a slice! Our guests RAVED about the cake - it was moist, and the frosting was so light and delicious. I'm sure people were going back for seconds!

We selected a vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. Laura is a well known sugar artist in the area and she decorated our cake with edible lilies and roses that the children LOVED. We are going to ask her to make a smaller cake for our one year anniversary.

Our cake was about $700 for 200 servings. Without the sugar decorations, it would have been about $575 but we recieved so many compliments, I think it was worth it.

Laura was recommended by our reception venue and we compared her against a couple of other large bakeries in the area. We went with Laura because she loves what she does for a living and it shows in all of her great creations. When you visit her office (in her home) there are countless awards for her butter-cream frosting and various delicious cakes. She prepares fresh and delicious taste tests for you and takes you through a binder of all of her cakes to figure out what will be the best for your event. I was in awe of her talent, professionalism and passion for her job. I highly recommend Laura.
