We make high-end wedding and celebration cakes for special occasions. We specialize in fondant-covered cakes and are known for our contemporary designs, clean work, and sugar flowers.
We love baking and decorating wedding cakes because:
We love to “WOW” our clients with a fabulous cake that exceeds their expectations. Wedding Cakes are a timeless tradition, and we love to create cakes that reflect the couple’s personal style.
My personality is:
My personality tends to be pretty relaxed! I love learning about my clients to see what their wedding vision entails, and what having a beautiful wedding cake means to them. I always include my clients in the design process, I think it’s way more fun, and they get to feel like they really helped create something beautiful!
What makes our business stand out from dessert companies is:
Our work speaks for itself when it comes to standing out! Although we decorate with a wide variety of mediums (figures, sugar flowers, carving, fondant), we have perfected our craft, and wouldn’t take on anything we weren’t absolutely sure we could nail! Our sugar flowers have won awards, and really takes our cake designs to the next level!
We also make realistic, novelty groom cakes that will bring a super fun and unique element to your wedding!
What couples should know about planning a tasting with Tampa Bay Cake Company:
At your tasting, we will go over everything from processes, design, pricing, and logistics. This is where I can get a feel for your unique style, and take a look at all the beautiful cakes you’ve been saving/pinning. It’s helpful if you provide color swatches if you are needing us to match a certain color, or your invitation if you need us to match your monogram, etc.
Selecting and designing your cake:
First, we will discuss the guest count, the wedding date, and budget. If we seem like a good match we will schedule a tasting, and then will delve into colors, and design. This is where I will offer suggestions, show past work, trends, and help you understand all the possibilities that come with ordering a custom wedding cake. You will then receive an estimate and a rough sketch. Once you decide to book with us we do require a retainer to hold your date. Once secured, you will receive your sketches which you will then get to make changes to (or not!), and that’s about it!
It’s difficult to give an exact price for custom work, but we can say that buttercream cakes start at $6/serving, and fondant covered cakes start at $8/serving.

Tampa Bay Cake Company Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
“I loved the idea of having a 3-tier cake so I searched on Pinterest, found one, and presented it to Emily from Tampa Bay Cake Company. She had her ideas, and we collaborated and came up with a beautiful elegant cake. I chose the carrot cake because my husband and I absolutely love it. Emily blew that flavor out of the water. Thinking about it makes me want more!” -Cassandra and Chris | Rose Gold South Tampa New Year's Eve Wedding
