I've had a sweet tooth for as long as I can remember.  My love of desserts provided a natural segue into baking, and I even worked as a cake decorator throughout high school and college.

But it wasn't until I learned about modern cake decorating through TV shows like Cake Boss that I began to understand that cake can be so much more than a delicious treat.  I love how the artistry of cake design allows me to create stunning works of art that can be customized in countless ways to reflect the mood or theme of each couple's wedding.  I've seen first-hand how my cakes capture the attention of guests and leave lasting impressions that keep people talking long after the event has passed.

And isn't that why you agonize over every detail of your perfect wedding day?  You want you wedding to be unique, suited to your personality and preferences, and ultimately, memorable.  After all, it's the most anticipated day of your life.  It wouldn't do it justice to be quickly forgotten.

Since creating my first elaborate cake in 2011 for my own wedding, I've designed countless centerpiece cakes for a variety of occasions, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and corporate meetings and parties.  I truly love what I do, and I can't wait to discover how I can help you bring your perfect wedding day to fruition.

Why Choose a Design Studio Over a Bakery?

In creating the vision for Enticing Icing, I was very intentional about building a design studio and not a traditional bakery.  I don't spend my days mass-producing dozens of generic cakes, and I don't have a storefront.  Instead, I commit to a select few couples per weekend and focus all of my creative energy on creating stunning, memorable wedding cakes for these real couples whom I've met and feel connected to.  Throughout your consultation, cake design collaboration, and general communication, I'm confident that you will feel welcomed, appreciated, and truly cared for.  I pride myself on providing a professional and personal service to each of my deserving clients.

In additional, I believe that my clean, elegant designs demonstrate a unique style and attention to detail that set Enticing Icing apart from other Twin Cities vendors.  Combining a contemporary design style with a menu of fresh-baked cakes using the finest ingredients, I aim to create the perfect centerpiece cake for your wedding reception - one that will create cherished memories for years to come.
