Stephanie Baker (yes, that’s her real name!) is an alumni of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and has been a professional pastry chef since 1992. Serving the northern Virginia and DC metro area, her custom order cake shop specializes in custom wedding cakes, cupcakes and sculptured cakes.

Nothing here is mass produced. Every creation is hand crafted, from scratch, especially for you - from the time it goes into the oven until it is proudly displayed on your table.

Wedding cakes start at $7 per serving. Delivery to most of the DC metro area is $50. Included in the purchase price of a wedding cake is a voucher for a complimentary 6" cake redeemable on your first anniversary.

Bakery hours are Tues-Fri 10-6. Prrivate tastings scheduled during these times. After hours or weekend appointments can be available although my availability is more limited. Read less

Stephanie was a pleasure to work with and her cake was everything we had hoped for. The design was beautiful and exactly like the picture I showed her. The cake itself was delicious, which was extremely important to me because baking is one of my hobbies. We choose to have two flavors: banana pudding and vanilla-orange cake with chocolate cream mousse. Both tasted great and were raved about by the guests. Stephanie responded to all of my emails promptly, the cake was delivered on time, and best of all, her prices are very reasonable. I am so glad we choose to work with her!

I LOVED my wedding cake. It was sooo pretty and it tasted amazing. Stephanie was so great to work with and the cake tasting was one of my favorite experiences that I had throughout the planning process.

I'm a wedding photographer and have tasted a LOT of wedding cakes. I found that usually when a wedding cake looks beautiful, it usually isn't very tasty. It wasn't until I tasted one of Stephanie's cakes at a wedding I was photographing that I realized that that doesn't necessarily have to be true. We opted for four different types of cake for our four tiered cake. Chocolate, Peanut butter, banana pudding and my favorite, red velvet. They all tasted so amazing ... we couldn't choose! Stephanie even hand did the sugar roses. I remember seeing my cake on my wedding day and thinking how gorgeous it looked!

Anyways, my point is that Stephanie's cakes are so pretty and so tasty! If you're looking for a fantastic wedding cake, go with her!

We first met Stephanie in December for a taste test. She was totally cool with my parents attending. Her shop was warm and inviting. She caught on quickly our needs for the wedding cupcake.

Our guests were in awe of the cupcakes. I did not have a cake topper and felt bad about that but Stephanie reassured us that she would work with our florist, Marita for a floral arrangement which was quite elegant! There were guests that were impressed by the few "glutten-free" cupcakes.

We plan to use Stephanie's services in the future. Thanks for the discount since this was a referral! Great pricing...affordable and on time!

Stephanie created a very special cake for us. It was an artistic masterpiece in that, to get the look we wanted, it incorporated a variety of materials (lights, paper, flowers) all of which she arranged cohesively to create a phenomenal result. And in addition to being gorgeous, it was delicious!! I even liked the fondant! During the lead up to the event, Stephanie was quick to respond to emails and worked with us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. I would definately recommend her.

Stephanie was courteous and professional, and did an excellent job with our wedding cake. It looked perfect and tasted delicious. She went above and beyond to create a very unique flavor, not on her usual menu (blue velvet) that was a hit with our guests. We especially love the complimentary "top tier" at our one year anniversary!

She is so great and flexible and responsive. The cakes are not just amazingly beautiful and well done, they taste fabulous.

Stephanie was recommended to us by the Odyssey. We'd tried tastings with other vendors, and as a baker myself, I was not impressed. The day before reaching out to Stephanie I'd decided to bake and decorate the cake myself, but my mom and husband quickly talked me out of it! Because of the short notice, we weren't able to do a tasting with Stephanie. We spoke via email and I told her what I wanted and the day of the wedding, it is exactly what I got. We went with two flavors, french vanilla and red velvet. Both were amazing and all of our guest were pleased! When I arrived to the venue, the cake was already set up, and me having bride-brain at that point forgot to pick up the fresh roses Stephanie needed to top the cake. Instead of allowing me to panic, Stephanie quickly made it ok by using artificial petals that we'd brought in for the aisle. It worked out perfectly. All in all I am really pleased with Stephanie and recommend all NOVA brides to use her for their wedding day!

Wow did I have the best wedding cake ever! My wedding guests have been raving about how beautiful and delicious my cake by Stephanie the Baker was. Stephanie does everything top notch. From the initial tasting meeting I knew we had found our vendor! She was professional and communication was always prompt and clear. She even assisted me in ideas for decorating the cake table and on where/how to rent an extra large cake stand. She arrived on the day of the wedding as promised and set the cake up beautifully. I've already asked her to do the cake for our next big event, our daughter's first birthday and I can't wait! She's the best!
