Born in Massachusetts and raised in New Hampshire, I fell in love with food at some point during my teenage years.  I spent many childhood days in the kitchen alongside my mother, and discovered a true passion for baking. 

After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, with a degree in Psychology, I spent 7 years in Boston sampling all the amazing food the city has to offer. Working in the Executive Recruiting business helped to support my eating habits but did not do a whole lot to motivate my career!  Shortly after marrying my husband John, we decided to head north to Lake Placid, NY so that I could pursue a career as a pastry chef at Paul Smith's College.  After graduating with a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts, I spent the next 8 years as the Pastry Chef for Putnam Market in Saratoga Springs, NY where I gained invaluable experience and spent many fun days in the kitchen.  I have combined this remarkable experience with my education to establish Cake.  I love what I do and even more, I would love to share it with you!

I just wanted I thank you again the fantastic cupcakes at the wedding. They were so fantastic that our DJ has asked for your info so that they can recommend you. I gave them your website.  The cupcakes were the perfect size and people ate them up!! We didn't have any left over. It definitely made the wedding perfect.

The cake was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always raved about you :) and 
gave your name to everyone.  The entire cake was gone (well all but 3 small pieces i saved for hubby and kids) and we had  a perfect amount.
Thank you again I'll be in touch this winter for another cake!

Thank you so much, Alissa!  We absolutely loved how the cake looked and tasted!  Thank you for going above and beyond.  As someone who loves to bake myself, it was great working with a small business owner such as yourself!

I just wanted to tell you that we thought our cake was perfect! The tiered cake was perfectly decorated and the sheet cakes absolutely delicious! Everyone raved about how good it was and it didn't last long... Especially the chocolate peanut butter! Every crumb was gone! Thank you for the whole experience, you have been amazing and so easy to work with. Thanks for perfectly executing our cake vision for our wedding!

Absolutely the most gorgeous cake I have ever had! Perfect colors and the finishing touches, the chairs, shells and chocolate beach stones were perfect. Can't forget the taste, which was (I almost hate to say it but I already knew it based on our last cake you made for us) wonderful. It was a wonderful anniversary party, thanks in large part to you.  Again, I don't know how to say thank-you enough.  Save time for us next year for our 8th.

Thank you so much for the shower cake. It was just perfect and as usual tasted wonderful. Everyone just loved the HAT. So much so that the mother of the bride was asking if it would be possible to get the wedding cake from you!
-July 2012
Thank you for the wonderful cupcakes you made for my daughter's birthday! They were the perfect size for preschoolers, and were DELICIOUS! Several of the adults at the party commented on how much they loved them, and one of the party staff people asked if she could take a picture of them, because they were so pretty. (And I imagine she's seen a lot of cupcakes!)
Looking forward to the next occasion when I can order from you! :)
