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

Maggie's Cakes was absolutely AMAZING to work with! I was getting a large cake for my engagement party and Zara (the baker) could not have been more responsive and attentive to our needs and style. She even took the time to match the fondant color perfectly to my shoes I had shown her I was wearing to the party (which were dyed one of my wedding colors)! The cake was beyond fantastic in terms of design, appearance and taste. Zara utilized her superb baking and artistry skills to effortlessly create a cake that exceeded any expectations we had. I received so many compliments and the cake wound up being one of the most memorable parts of the entire engagement party. The flavors were especially delicious and tasted better than any cake I've enjoyed at any affair. I was most impressed by the attention to detail and the unique flavors we got. Zara is a joy to work with. Even after all she did to get the cake to us (which included extensive travel and putting it together in an unfamiliar work environment), she still brought even more joy to our engagement party by taking several family photos for us with my brother's camera (impromptu kind gesture on her part) . I cannot say enough positive things about this place. If you are really looking for an amazing quality cake by a great company, then Maggie's Cakes would be the first and only place I would recommend to anyone.

Zara made a fabulous cake for my fiance's birthday party. And she's a delight to talk to. The cake was way beyond my expectations. I was afraid when my fiance cut it because It looked like artwork. And then it tasted great too. Keep it up. Highly recommended!!

We used Zara, aka: Maggies' Cakes for our wedding on September 17th...we could not be happier with the end result! Our cake was BEAUTIFUL and DELICIOUS! We have had many guests say, "the cake was our favorite part!" (and we had a gorgeous wedding, so that says a lot!)
Zara was fun to work with...she's unique, talented and creative. The flavors of our cake were unique to both us and our guests and honestly, we've never had cake that good at any wedding we've ever been to, so we were proud that we used her.
She was such a joy to work with and so careful and passionate with her creation...to be cleche', she was the "icing on the cake" for our wedding! We HIGHLY recommend her!

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.

Zara of Maggie's Cakes was wonderful to work with and made the entire process easy and fun. She has a unique and creative aesthetic with personalized touches whether you choose a Southwest theme or a classic one. Also, her cakes are as delicious as they are beautiful, with so many flavor options it will be tempting to try them all.

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.
