Karen, who?

TDV_CheshireCatScroll2I began creating cakes before there was a boss or ace of cakes.  At the time, very few attended culinary school for cake decorating.  I learned as many did, by creating for my children and family. Eventually my children were off to grade school providing me time to begin a job at a local Italian bakery. It is was here that I honed my skills as a cake decorator. Not only did I become proficient in wedding cake design, fondant and intricate styles, I also discovered a passion for meeting and designing one on one with individuals.

Ten years went by quickly, but I knew it was time to move forward. I left my first bakery nest and began testing my decorating “wings” in new settings.  Over the years, I learned and grew in wonderful upscale bakeries and cake boutiques, one of which won “Best of Boston”.  Along the way, I continued to create for family, friends, and extended friends. I will always be thankful for these people. They grew with me and eventually convinced me to take my passion to the next level, a business of my own.

Owning my business has blessed me with the privilege of handcrafting works of art which are also enjoyed when cut. Every cake is made to the specific desire and need of the individual placing the order. Many of my cakes cater to food allergies and sensitivities while while focusing on whole, fresh ingredients, including locally grown, when possible. They are truly fresh, delicious and moist.

I am also thrilled for the opportunity to personally meet and speak to my customers.  It is an honor to get to know, and grow, with each one, along with their family and friends. Rather than simply being Karen “the cake lady”, I am Karen, your family’s artigiano (which is Italian for the French artisan) baker.

I look forward to your contacting me so we can discuss the details of your next cake!
