About Us Cake Savvy
Cake Savvy is a custom design cake bakery that will bring your ideas to life in a cake that you envisioned, from traditional styles to sculpted dragons.
Custom Design Cakes
I have always had a dream of having a bakery for custom design cakes. I enjoy baking and with over ten years of experience behind me, I founded Cake Savvy in 2017 with the intent of providing amazing personalized, custom design cakes for weddings and other special occasions such as kids’ birthdays. and anniversaries, and, well most any event. I love to be creative and make original designs. I enjoy taking your ideas and designing something special.
At first, I worked from a wedding venue kitchen but with the need for expansion, I moved to a brand new location in early 2020 and it was great fun to take an empty space and design my very own custom bakery from scratch.
I am constantly learning new things in order to improve my skills and to make each unique cake look amazing, taste delicious, and most of all, meet your expectations. As a cake designer, my creations range from extravagant to sweet and simple and are suited for your specific occasion.
Currently, as well as having contracts with various wedding venues to provide wedding cakes and dessert table cakes, I also cater to many individuals with orders for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events, retirements, and many other special occasions. It’s a great way to help people make special memories that last a lifetime. I love the challenge of bringing your ideas to life and seeing the delight at the finished cake.

My Expertise in Custom Design Cakes
My expertise in design is in modelling chocolate figures and sugar flowers; my techniques also include piping, stencilling, chocolate work, and wafer paper which are all essential in cake design and creation.
As I mentioned I make everything from scratch, including my buttercream icing, marshmallow fondant, and chocolate ganache.
Contact me to discuss your event and your ideas for your custom design cake. I would love to create the “cherry on top” for your special occasion! You can also follow me on social media.
For my sugar flowers on our custom design cakes, I use a variety of mediums, depending on what type of flowers I am making; gumpaste, fondant with tylose added to make them harden, wafer paper, or modelling chocolate.
Sugar flowers cost more than fresh flowers, because of the time spent making them; most flowers are made one dainty petal at a time. They are cut out, painted, and carefully shaped onto the flower using a variety of tools.
All the detailed work leads to the ” Wow” factor and guests are amazed by the intricacy and beauty of the edible, handmade flowers, that are made to perfectly complement the design of your wedding cake.
Now that you know more about sugar flowers, read the panels on the right about why they could be a better option than real flowers on your custom design wedding cake.
Sugar flowers won’t wilt.
Heat and humidity can wreak havoc on wedding flowers, including those on your cake. A beautifully decorated (and expensive!) wedding cake can easily be ruined by wilted flowers that can’t stand up against the elements, especially at an outdoor reception. Luckily, sugar flowers will look “fresh” no matter the weather or where your wedding takes place!
Sugar flowers are never out of season
Everyone knows that one way to save money on wedding flowers is to opt for seasonal blooms. But what if you’re getting married in June and really want sunflowers? Or your wedding is in December and you love spring flowers? With sugar flowers on your cake, you don’t have to worry about the season as these beauties can be made all year long!
Sugar flowers are completely customizable
The wonderful thing about sugar flowers is that they are made by hand and from scratch, made personalized to your liking. Each petal and leaf are cut using special tools and then dyed or painted to match the flower’s natural colors or your wedding colors. Sugar flowers can be made to scale for a dainty, simple cake or a multi-tiered, show-stopping focal point.
Sugar flowers will last!
Unfortunately, the fresh flowers from your wedding will eventually die. However, the sugar flowers on your custom design cake can become keepsakes! Despite being made of sugar, they will last a long time at room temperature. This means, you can display them in a vase or on a shelf in your home as a unique memento from one of the most special days of your life.
Of course, sugar flowers are not restricted to wedding cakes. Sugar flowers are a great addition to almost any special occasion cake, whether that be for a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or promotion, yes, you guessed it, the possibilities are endless.
We are grateful to our partners as we work together to provide you with high-quality custom cakes for your special event that will surpass your expectations!
