The hallmarks of a person's life -- a promotion, marriage, birth of a child, graduation and more -- are celebrated with a cake. At Top Tier Cakery we know that these moments deserve a cake that is memorable. Our philosophy is to approach each one with artistry, excellence and an unyielding attention to every detail. We understand that not only is a wedding cake the centerpiece of the reception, but that the cutting of that cake is often the first thing the bride and groom do together as a married couple. It's a momentous event; it merits an outstanding cake!

Top Tier Cakery is delighted to be a client-centered, licensed, insured, legal couture cake design studio and bakery, operating within strict standards of excellence. We make your experience personal -- taking the time to partner with you and learn what will make your cake special. Each of our cakes is custom designed and made fresh -- frequently so beautiful that you almost don't want to eat it! Top Tier Cakery believes in quality over quantity, and therefore limits the number of orders that we will take for any week. Know exactly what you want? Terrific! Have a vague idea? Fantastic! Either way, we will consult with you and create the perfect, work-of-art centerpiece for your occasion.

Top Tier Cakery gladly delivers our elegant wedding cakes to Traverse City, Leelanau, Antrim, Benzie, Mackinac Island and all of Northern Michigan. Read less

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our service and the result of our wedding cake. Nancy was extremely flexible and understanding to the craziness that comes along with planning a wedding. I had more compliments on my cake then anything else at the wedding. I would definitely recommend using Top Tier Cakery!

Thanks Ariadne. You did such a beautiful job of making your wedding uniquely you in so many ways. Have you seen the wonderful Dan and Melissa photo of you featured in My North Wedding? Fabulous! The cake from one of my other weddings is also featured a few pages earlier, so two of my brides' weddings were in the same publication. How fun!

Nancy did a wonderful job from begining to end. The first meeting was most helpful because of the examples she brought and the design ideas for our type of celebration. The cake was elegant with traditional details which fit the occasion. The frosting and cake was delicious and received many compliments. Her attention to details, the delivery and setup went so smoothly we were able to attend to other areas of the celebration. Our club was very happy and proud to have her expertise and professional help in our 90 Year Anniversary Celebration for The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City.

We had to make a lot of last minute (2 weeks in advance) changes. Nancy was 100% on board, 100% professional, and the cake turned out more amazing than I could have imagined. Everyone thought it was beautiful and delicious. I'm not sure the top part will last a year in our freezer.
If you want to be able to tell your cake baker what you want (even if you aren't entirely sure yourself), when you want it, and not have to worry or baby-sit them, call Nancy.

First and Foremost, the work on the cake was intricate, very detailed, and was amazing! We had a peacock theme and she matched our colors, and created the most amazing peacock cake with a peacock on top. She kept me up to date on the status of the order as it progressed. We wanted a delivery instead of pick up and she ensured that happened even though she had other previous plans for the same day. Her rates are reasonable and her work is creative and more than I could have expected. Thank you for helping make my wedding day amazing!

I didn't do many bakery samplings, but when I arrived at TTC with my chief cake taster (mom) in tow, I knew it was going to be good. A woman who loves baking so much that she has built a house addition specifically for her own creative kitchen is a woman with a true passion.

Appearances aside, we were not left wanting in taste or presentation. Nancy had prepared a special mini cake surrounded by dollops of different fillings. Mom and I happily sat down to our little cake party and cut our own little slices and tasted to our hearts delight. The cake was fantastic in consistency - it was fluffy, but not squishy, and dense enough to hold its own, but not that kind of grocery store dense that is mushy and weird. The frosting was delicious as well - true in sugary and buttery form. We were even convinced to use fondant even though we have a fondant aversion. Nancy's fondant was quite good, so we went with it.

For design I wanted a cascade of sugar flowers. Nancy hadn't yet done something like this, but man was she on the money. Nancy already had a few sugar flowers in her kitchen that looked so delicate and artful, so I knew she would make some great flowers for me – and they were breathtaking as expected.

For my rustic wedding I wanted my cake on a giant tree slice. Tree slices are hard to find; online they are expensive or the wrong kind and tree-cutter companies weren’t helpful. But Nancy saved the day with a fondant creation that looked like the most perfect tree from an enchanted wedding forest with a perfectly level top for my perfect cake.

My football-loving husband received a surprise chocolate grooms cake in the form of a Giants football helmet. We had trouble with the logo since it's copyrighted - silly. In the end, the helmet looked really authentic and barely even needed a logo - a Giants fan knows a Giants helmet. And not to be outdone by the fondant tree slice, the football helmet cake got it's own homemade astroturf cake stand.

You and your family were a delight, and very gracious about being in my small space. The luxury of having a fully licensed and inspected commercial bakery just steps from my door is wonderful, but government restrictions made it smaller than I would have liked. Thank you for the opportunity to do the flowing cascade of flowers. I've done many smaller arrangements of my handmade sugar flowers, but never so many on one cake. Like you, I thought they turned out great. And the purchased logo for the helmet actually didn't detract from it as I had feared. Best wishes to you; you're a darling couple.

The mother of the groom is gluten free. We ordered 6 GF cupcakes offered by Nancy and her daughter. They delivered a dozen, each decorated with the same beautiful, edible Gerber Daisies that decorated the wedding cake. The wedding cake and the cupcakes were delivered and set up on time and all was perfect. All were delicious and totally enjoyed by all the guests. The flavors and fillings Nancy offered were delicious and it was difficult choosing from all her offerings.
Top Tier Bakery is very professional and offers a top notch product.
