Who doesn’t smile when they think about cake? At Amélie’s, we understand the “leading role” a cake plays at events like weddings and birthday parties. The look and taste of the cake should be breathtaking! So, what makes Amélie’s cakes different from other cakes?

First, we insist on using old world recipes and techniques—we never cut corners with our craftsmanship or ingredients. Amélie’s cake base is delicately crafted chiffon, making the taste experience like nibbling on clouds! Our mousse filling options include highly unusual flavors like passion fruit and blood orange. We make our own Italian buttercream, and we won’t use fondants or non-edibles that reduce the integrity of our scratch-made ingredients. Finally, the finishing embellishments combine traditional piping and flashes of modern elements, all applied with Amélie’s artistic flair!

Custom Cake

 

Did you know? Amélie’s chiffon is made with a classical French whipped egg technique, giving it an airy texture. Our Italian buttercream is made with butter and whipped egg whites instead of the American style made with shortening and powdered sugar. 

Choose from our custom, composed or wedding cake offerings. Just give us a call, we’re here for you! For immediate answers to common questions, refer to our FAQs page.
