Queen Anne's Lace Cakes 

Specialty Cakes

Queen Anne’s Lace
An exclusive Queen Anne's Lace recipe and a beautiful study of white on white. Each layer is slathered in a creamy white buttercream, covered in white chocolate fondant and adorned with a lacy white Royal Icing design. Without divulging all the secret ingredients, I can only say that this is a moist and gently spiced carrot cake. (After all, Queen Anne's Lace is a descendant of the royal "Daucus Carota" family!)

Regal Rose
A noble nod to the Queen of Flowers, this elegant blush pink cake is filled with Bavarian cream and frosted with petal soft Swiss meringue buttercream, delicately flavored with rosewater.  It is especially beautiful when adorned with sugar roses.

Coconut Crown
A rich cake flavored with coconut milk, swaddled in a whipped white frosting and sprinkled in coconut. A cake dedicated to my dear mother-in-law who adores coconut.

Royal Red Velvet
A deep chocolaty-red cake flavored with creme fraiche and cocoa, this popular cake is filled and frosted with a light cream cheese, in true Southern style.

Bride and Groom
Also called "The Black and White Cake," this is a version of my beloved Grandma Nealy's recipe. Dark and moist, this "Devil's Food" cake is filled and covered in swoops of her heavenly white and shiny boiled frosting.  

Marry Me Marble
A beautiful marriage of chocolate and vanilla cake filled with chocolate Bavarian cream and covered in marbled white and chocolate fondant.  As handsome inside as outside, just like my sweet husband.

Wedding White Chocolate
A classic white milk cake filled with white chocolate ganache and frosted with a light and airy Swiss meringue buttercream. As pure and elegant as a bride, this is a traditional favorite.

Love Always Almond
An almond-flavored yellow cake with a cherry filling and white almond meringue frosting. Adorable when decorated with handmade marzipan hearts.

Citrus Celebration
Sprinkled with a sweet lemon syrup, this cheerful yellow cake is covered with an orange buttercream and filled with a perky lemon filling. It is the sweet and sour combination my own son is crazy about.

Cheers! Champagne
A pink champagne cake with red raspberry filling, topped with a subtle champagne buttercream. Adding chocolates flavored with raspberry liqueur, will very likely inspire an extra toast!

Sweetheart Strawberry Shortcake
Inspired by my sweet mom's delicious dessert, this white cake is sprinkled with strawberry syrup. It is layered with a strawberry filling and frosting. Strawberry jam imparts flavor and a subtle pink hue to the buttercream. Adorning it with chocolate covered strawberries could steal anyone's heart.
