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

I would highly recommend Maggie's Cake for any type of celebration. Zara made our wedding cake for our Santa Fe destination wedding. Our cake was a piece of art and tasted exquisite. Far exceeded my expectations in so many ways. The cake selection process was a fun experience on its own. Zara's studio is unique and beautiful and cake tasting was so much fun.
Thank you again Zara for everything. I hope to be able to eat your cake someday!

Maggie's Cakes is truly a wonderful business. It is quintessential Santa Fe. Zara, the owner, is so accommodating, customer service oriented, and our wedding cake was to die for. Zara worked with a local florist to give us the cake we had dreamed of. From the minute we met Zara, it felt like we had known her for years. I would recommend using her over and over again.

I ordered a special "Frozen" cake for my wife for her last birthday. She only managed to look at it very briefly, but I know that it was something she enjoyed... we spent hours trying to figure out how we wanted it designed. Zara was very helpful and patient, giving us feedback every step of the way. My wife passed away the day after her birthday, but I know that this year was extra special, due largely in part to the amazing cake we had to celebrate her 45 years of life.

Zara Southard at Maggie's Cakes is a pleasure to work with. I knew from the minute she drove in during a snow storm to give my then-fiancé a taste test with me on facetime that this was going to go well. She was an absolute delight and we decided to go with flavor suggestions she made. That chocolate cake with amaretto buttercream was to die for. We provided a picture of the cake we wanted and she recreated it even better than in the photograph and surprised us with an extra layer!! Everything was seamless and I got so many compliments on the cake. In fact, one of my guests was a wedding planner and said it was the most unique and beautiful cake she had ever seen. Zara goes above and beyond and she is honest. Of course I don't have experience with other cake makers in Santa Fe, but I don't see any reason to look elsewhere.

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! :)
