We specialize in creating edible works of art, in the form of wedding cakes! We have the unique ability to create stunning, contemporary cakes that also taste incredible. We offer full dessert bars and edible favors as well.
What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:
At first, I just liked making pretty things, but then I realized how much of a demand there was for custom cakes, and more specifically wedding cakes. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and I am proud to teach my children the importance of hard work, reliability, perseverance, and consistency.
Our 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!
We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:
I just love the excitement that each couple feels while planning their wedding. It’s such a special time for them, and something many of them only do once. Their joy is contagious, and I just can’t help but feel happy right along with them. I also love working aside other wedding professionals who have an equivalent love and passion for their work, just as I do!
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.
What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:
We work with our couples on every detail to ensure their cake matches their overall style- From flavor, to design, to presentation. We also create award-winning sugar flowers that can elevate your cake design to the next level. We take food safety very seriously, and highly recommend using edible flowers for your cake!
One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:
I was born in Kansas City, Missouri, I used to march Drum Corps (think professional marching band!), and I graduated with a degree in History.
One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:
My husband and I love to bowl- It’s actually how we met! We bowl together in a league every week!
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:
Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we've personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay's most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren't created by fake accounts.
We wanted a classic, simple cake with fresh flowers. I fell in love with the modern tall-tiered cakes that the Tampa Bay Cake Company showcased on their website.
We were very happy with the taste-tasting and designing phase, where Emily sketched a mock-up of the cake so we could appreciate the design and make adjustments. The cake looked amazing at the wedding, and everyone loved the lemon raspberry flavors.
We looked for someone that was easy to work with, was accommodating with tastings, as well as understanding our vision. Of course, we also wanted the cake to taste delicious as well.
We actually went with a different vendor from the start, but they canceled on us three weeks before our wedding. Our wedding planner recommended Tampa Bay Cake Company, and we regret not going with them from the beginning. They were so accommodating and nice to work with. We loved how our cake turned out, and it was absolutely delicious. We were in panic mode for a day or two, but Tampa Bay Cake Company saved the day for us.
We did a naked cake and hired Tampa Bay Cake Company because we loved their designs and felt it would fit well with the theme of our wedding.
Their cakes were by far the best tasting we had!
I wanted the cake to be all white and simple to match the decor and design of our wedding. We went with a three-tier cake, which included real cascading orchids to compliment the orchids in my bouquet.
We picked up a cake-testing to-go box from Tampa Bay Cake Company, allowing us to try four different flavors in our home. They made the process super easy, and we also loved the gold cake stand we rented from them.
My wedding planner recommended that I look into Tampa Bay Cake Company. Their cakes looked beautiful, and after reaching out to them, the owner, Emily Lopez, got back to me right away. She was very friendly and offered sketches of the details we discussed for the cake, as well as suggestions.
Since we weren't living in Tampa at the time, we were able to have cake samples shipped to us, and they were all delicious! Emily is so talented, and not only was my wedding cake perfect, she made an awesome personalized groom's cake for us.
We wanted someone who made beautiful cakes but also had great flavor options for us. We wanted a cake that was different from others and gave a ‘wow’ factor for both looks and taste.
Tampa Bay Cake Company was a referral by our venue, and I had seen the company on multiple sites as a recommended vendor. They made the process so simple from the moment we started to talk. I had tried a few other bakeries and none of them compared to the quality that Tampa Bay Cake Company provided to us. We chose a sample box of multiple flavors, and they were all so good that it took us over an hour to finally decide on the cake flavor.
