Cake Savvy Creator

Cake designer and founder of Cake Savvy.

Hello and welcome to Cake Savvy.  I am Elise Taves, cake designer, and artist, and the founder of Cake Savvy. We are located in Chilliwack, BC. I have been designing and decorating cakes for over four years. I am mostly self-taught and constantly learning new things in order to make each cake look amazing as well as tasting delicious! As a cake designer my designs range from the extravagant to sweet and simple and are suited to your special occasion.

My expertise is in modeling chocolate figures and sugar flowers, however my techniques also include piping, stenciling, chocolate work, and wafer paper which are all essential in cake design and creation. I make everything from scratch, including my buttercream icing, marshmallow fondant, and chocolate ganache.

To meet with me and discuss your custom cake design, please visit the contact page. I’d love to create the “cherry on top” of your special day! Also find my latest updates on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Wedding Wire



Wedding Testimonies

Cake Savvy Bunnies Wedding Cakes Chilliwack“Thank you so much Elise! You were a pleasure to work with from the beginning. From your initial design, which you had ready for our consultation, basing it on my description and emailed photos of concept. You managed to create a beautiful cake, that is whimsical but very adult and nit childlike. Not easy to do with Miss Bunny and Thumper as a topper!
You also did an amazing job on the topper. I did not know what to expect, but you surpassed my expectations. It was a match to the porcelain collectible, but you threw in the birdcage veil, it was so cute.
You were right, the homemade fondant us hood and not as sweet as commercially made ones. the extra care you took to match our separate gluten free cake was also appreciate.
I would recommend you to anyone and everyone who needs a cake for any occasion”.  Shelley.


Wedding cakes form Cake Savvy“Best cake ever! We ordered mini cup cakes and a wedding cake. Everything was super delicious and simply beautiful. I gave her a picture of what we wanted and she made it even better. Thank you for making it so easy for us and for your outstanding service! We were just blown away with how perfect everything was!”





Cake for all occasions from Cake Savvy“Cake Savvy is amazing! Elise can help you make all your cake dreams come to life. She made our wedding cake and people still have not stopped commenting on it. There were three tiers, chocolate, mocha, and zucchini. The zucchini cake was the best I’ve ever had. The design of the bottom layer matched the ruching of my wedding dress and then Elise colour matched the middle layer to our bright blue wedding colour. It was so perfect! We had 130 guests and it fed all our guests and we still had left overs for the present opening and to share with neighbours.”




Birthday Testimonies

Cake Savvy creation for a very special occasion“BREATHTAKING! DELICIOUS! STUNNING! This was the reaction of my guests at my son’s 3rd birthday! Elise from Cake Savvy truly was the icing on top for my son’s 3rd birthday. We had the most delicious 3 tier cake, topped with a stunning edible Stanley Cup! My boy is obsessed with hockey and this cake was the highlight of his skating /hockey themed birthday. Elise went above and beyond other bakeries by creating a detailed sketch before committing to the job, and also by delivering to the venue. A lot of people can create visually appealing cakes; Elise, however takes it a step further with the delicious & flavourful taste combinations ! Elise was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I look forward to more DELICIOUS & BREATHTAKING cakes!
