We pride ourselves on the quality of our cakes and know they’re second to none! But why?

They’re filled with quality ingredients, from our exclusive cake mix that you won’t find in any other market to our signature buttercream frosting made with a special vanilla extract. Our cakes are made in small batches resulting in fresher products. And all our cakes are handmade, right down to measuring ingredients by hand to ensure you always get the perfect cake.

How long have you worked at Lunds and Byerly’s?
More than 14 years! I began my career with Lunds and Byerly’s at age 15 as a bagger and cashier. While in college a position became available in the bakery department and I jumped at the opportunity. There were so many new and exciting challenges in this role that I decided to put my schooling on hold. I have never regretted this decision. I went on to become a cake decorator, pastry chef apprentice and then into my current role as pastry chef.

The most important element of any wedding is the cake! It is the centerpiece of your wedding reception. We welcome the opportunity to design and craft a wedding cake that will reflect your good taste and new life as a couple.

Have you noticed how many cake-based reality television shows there are today? Ace of Cakes, Fabulous Cakes and Cake Boss are a few that quickly come to mind.

When I’m flipping through the channels and come across one of these shows I usually set the remote down. Probably not surprising given the fact that I’m a category manager for our bakeries. These shows open our eyes to the amazing things that cake decorators and pastry chefs can do. But it’s not just on television!
