Amazing cakes!

I was thrilled to find such a talented baker for our vegan wedding cake. The cake was beautiful AND positively delicious. Emily worked with us to create the cake that was perfect for us. She also worked with us to keep things in our budget. It was a great experience working with her. And not only is the cake vegan, but it’s gluten free, and it is STILL delicious. Everyone was able to enjoy this cake and that make me so happy:). I would DEFINITELY recommend!!!

Amazing vegan/gluten-free specialty cakes

I've been vegan for 15 years, and always assumed a traditional wedding cake wouldn't be an option for me.... then, as vegan bakeries got better and better, I found myself a gluten-free partner, and assumed again that we wouldn't be able to have a traditional cake.

Then we found Emily at Lael Cakes, and what can I say? Dreams do come true. (Yes, dreams. I LOVE CAKE!)

In addition to the remarkable beauty of her cakes, they taste great. We got three fascinating and fantastic flavor combinations, and people were shocked how good everything was. Though we had a 100% vegan and gluten-free wedding, we had only a small number of veg*an and/or gluten-free guests, so we took a LOT of teasing leading up to the date that people would be smuggling in "real" food.

They ate their words, and then went back for a second piece of cake.

Seriously, Emily's cakes are SO GOOD, that they don't get those caveats: "Good for vegan," or "Way better than most gluten-free cakes," or anything like that. These cakes are just GOOD. Light, flavorful, not overly-sweet but still hitting the "cake" note (these are not health foods).

I'll definitely use her services for special events moving forward, not just weddings. In fact, I might invent reasons to need to order a cake. They're just that good!

-Lemon cake with strawberry-basil buttercream
-Olive oil cake with vanilla buttercream and fresh figs
-Ginger-spice cake (think somewhere between gingerbread and carrot cake) with orange blossom buttercream

Pros: Easy to work with, Specialty orders, Fancy-schmancy

Cons: Must order in advance, No storefront
