Helping to celebrate life’s happiest moments is our passion. We create beautiful one-of-a-kind custom cakes for weddings and special occasions that we hope will be the highlight of your event. Baked fresh from scratch and decorated with our signature handmade sugar flowers, our cakes are a true merging of artistry and taste.
At Delish Cakery, our passion for desserts and artistic flair merge to craft beautiful one-of-a-kind custom cakes. Each of our sugar flowers is created petal by petal, just as each of our cakes is baked from scratch specifically to order. Our kitchen is a happy place for dessert lovers with a discerning eye.
Cake design draws on both my passion for sweets (I’m a dessert first kinda gal) and my desire to be constantly creating.
I am a Charlotte native (we do exist!) and come from a very artistic family. I have always had an incurable sweet tooth and began baking in high school, often spending the afternoon testing cookie recipes and then peddling them door to door through the neighborhood. Years later, when I discovered the possibilities in crafting cakes using sugar and modern decorating techniques as an artistic medium I became totally fixated.
Delish Cakery was established in 2009 and we have been baking our hearts out ever since! Each cake that leaves our kitchen is baked fresh from scratch using recipes I have developed over the years to create in my opinion, the perfect slice of cake. Our signature sugar flowers often complete our cake designs to create truly bespoke centerpieces for weddings and special occasions.
I love getting to be a part of the best moments in our patrons’ lives, often starting with their wedding, later welcoming little ones at baby showers, and at birthday celebrations for years to come.
The cake tasting was our favorite part of the wedding planning process and we knew our guests would love whatever flavors we picked. We loved the sugar flowers that we can keep and display in a shadow box to remember our special day, but even better than that she made a replica of our dog as well! The guests loved that it looked like Olivia had taken a little bite out of the side and we will hold on to the sugar mold of her forever. It was really the “icing on the cake” lol.
Aryn is a baking genius!! When we arrived for our tasting we were treated to a delicious macaron with champagne to start off. It was hard to decide on which cakes and fillings because literally everything was phenomenal. When it came to the design of the cake, I showed Aryn a few photos of ones I liked and what I liked about them, and she mocked up a design on her iPad right there! So I knew exactly what the cake would look like. This was by far the best part of wedding planning and Aryn made it so fun and easy.
When we went to our cake tasting, I had no idea what I wanted our cake to look like besides not being a typical wedding cake. I talked to Aryn about my vision for our wedding and showed her the invitations that I made myself (featuring a magnolia I hand drew). She instantly came up with an idea for a bold and beautiful design featuring my magnolia! Our cake was one of the most special parts of our day. Not only did Aryn create an absolutely stunning cake, it was so good that our guests went back for seconds!
We were able to mix and match different cake styles as different layers of our wedding cake, which was so cool, and allowed everyone's favorites to included. Aryn took the time at our tasting as well as later on through email to ensure she understood our vision and had great recommendations in areas where we weren't sure. She was able to provide a visual mock-up that really helped us visualize what we were going for. Additionally, the sugar flowers they created as embellishments looked SO REAL and were beautiful!!
