I'd never thought myself a baker. In my former life, I had long career in the military and DOD contracting, with a lot of gear-head and craftsmanship hobbies. I love the outdoors and have a fondness for things that'll kill me. I'm not sure if I'm your typical baker personality or not, but it turns out I have a knack for it, and it brings me a great deal of satisfaction.
Nothing (and I mean nothing) leaves my kitchen unless it meets my high standards, which can often mean one cake order gets baked a few times before it is perfect. I really want my cakes to be an experience. Maybe it brings you a slice of your childhood from that one perfect day. Maybe it is a memory of a special event. Maybe you're making a new memory. Whatever the case, my cakes are anything but typical.
I love taking classic elements and mixing them up a bit. I love fudge, and I love chocolate cake, and I love Boston creme. So why not make a Boston creme filled chocolate Bundt cake with deep, rich chocolate fudge sauce? Done. Maybe you like chocolate and orange; it is delightful! A light, smooth whipped buttercream icing made with fresh orange juice and peppered with orange zest makes the perfect combination. Who doesn't like tart, tangy-sweet raspberry and vanilla? That inspired the raspberry compote layered vanilla triple-layer cake. Do you need a gluten free cake? I can't think of a better way to get a little sweet than my almond flour Clementine cake. Do you have a favorite combination? I can probably make it happen. I even make pies.
All of my confections are made to order. Whether it is layer cakes, Bundt cakes, or even pies, I don't make anything until you tell me you want it. I will gladly (gleefully?) make your cake as organic as possible for an extra fee (that stuff is, regrettably, just more expensive). I take a great deal of pride in making truly delicious creations, and I want you to be just as proud to serve them.
You can't decide? That's okay! Tasting time!
Maybe you can't quite decide what you'd like; it all sounds good! Maybe some flavors don't seem like you'd like them, but you're curious. Well, I have just the thing! I can cater a tasting for you and your friends (always a great time) where you get to sample my cake and topping flavors. I can even work with one of our local purveyors of spirits to make it a great (if not slightly tipsy) event! Perfect for a fun gathering of your favorite folks.
