Wedding cakes

Your wedding cake should be more than delicious. The way it looks should elevate it beyond mere dessert. 

Custom wedding cakes portfolio

If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind, hand made custom wedding cake that not only looks beautiful, but tastes great then you have come to the right place! My wedding cake designs range from rustic to elegantly classic, vintage to modern, and from natural to Bollywood and gypsy. If you love the look of classic white wedding cakes, you're going to love some of the cakes I've created for brides. 

Hi, I'm Tracy Van Orden, and I'm passionate about creating wedding cakes and making this part of your event a stress free and a fun process.  I work with you from the beginning right through to the set-up on your big day. I design the cake according to your theme and vision, create the cake from scratch with only the finest ingredients - nothing fake - and I make all the florals by hand with fondant and sugar paste

Statements of color

Make a statement with splashes of color or go all out with bold, strong colors. Choose metallic to glam things ups or watercolor to express the softer subtler side.

Traditional White

 

Are you more of a traditionalist? Or perhaps you like to keep things mostly understated. Whether traditional or understated...white (and all it's shades) is never boring, but it's decidedly elegant.

Handmade florals
