Maggie Faralla opened Maggie's Cakes in 2000 to create artful wedding cakes that add a spark to one-of-a-kind events. For over 14 years, Maggie built one of the leading wedding cake businesses in New Mexico.

When Maggie passed away from cancer in December 2014, her step-daughter Zara Southard decided to continue Maggie’s legacy and keep the business open.

Zara was meticulously trained by Maggie in the art of baking and fondant as well as receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics in 2003.

"Fondant is just clay made out of sugar", Zara says. "I have always been attracted to the utilitarian in art, wanting to bring beauty to function. Ultimately, there is nothing more functional than food. I find great satisfaction in creating something beautiful and stunning and then in a matter on an hour it has been devoured!"

If you want an edible work of art, not just a cake, Maggie's Cakes is the one to call. Read less

Working with Zara was an absolute pleasure, she was definitely the easiest and most fun of all my vendors. She integrated my ideas into the design with ease and made wonderful suggestions on how to make it even more beautiful than I could have imagined. The cake was gorgeous and the taste was even better.
I would definitely recommend getting a cake from Zara at Maggies Cakes both for the experience and the product.
Bravo!

Wow! This was the most delicious wedding cake I have ever had and the best part is it was mine. :) Even the fondant was delicious was the comment from our guests. The buttercream was light and silky. The texture of the cake so delicate and fine. We had the lemon cake with lemon buttercream with raspberry preserves. I will post a picture once I get them from the photographer. Zara worked with the florist and created an amazingly beautiful 3rd layer with flowers since it was a smaller destination wedding. Thank you Zara your wonderful work totally exceeded my expectations! :)

Maggie makes the most amazing cakes!

For my wedding, I wanted a non traditional cake and Maggie made the most amazing and delicious Day of the Dead cake. The artistry was superb! Not only that, Maggie's personality is fun and quirky and she instantly won over my parents in a very fun and rowdy cake tasting session. In fact, she sent along extra berry preserves to the reception just for my father, who had taken quite a liking to them at the tasting.

During the planning, Maggie was constantly in contact and even sent along a wedding card after the event was over.

I highly recommend her.

I found Maggie's Cakes through a referral from the officiant for our wedding. After speaking to Zara about sizes and prices , we found the perfect cake for us. It was a simple yet beautiful cake that Zara made sure was delivered to our venue in plenty of time. Even though the date we required for our cake didn't give Zara a lot of time, she never made me feel rushed and produced a cake that was lovely and delicious. Even with saving the top to enjoy on our first anniversary we had plenty of cake to celebrate this wonderful day. Thank you again Zara.

I engaged Maggie's Cakes sight unseen but based on the recommendation of another baker. I wanted a specific cake that would be a copy of a 4" high paper wedding cake that I had asked one of my students to make for my sister and brother-in-law's 50th wedding anniversary. Being from San Francisco, I had no idea of bakeries in Santa Fe. After sending photos, Maggie agreed to give it a try! We traded ideas back and forth until we had a perfect replica of the miniature. My sister cried when she saw both Maggie's cake and the miniature.

Maggie was great to work with! She had a lot of ideas and recommendations when we had our initial consultion, but was very willing to adapt anything to accomodate my vision. Her cakes are absolutely delicious! We were very pleased with how they both turned out. We did a bridal cake and a "TX Longhorns" grooms cake, which was a big hit. I highly recommend Maggie.
