Garden Cakes

“ Where colors and textures merge into a symphony of flavors"

The absolute ultimate for any garden party.

 A collection of hand painted sugar flowers in a garden basket cake

Garden cakes are lovely.  They are baskets of flowers, topiaries, or even the sweetest pot of violets… only they are made with cake and wonderful sugar flowers.  Baskets have handles made from sugar and filled with beautiful hand painted flowers.

 These lovely cakes can be made in any size from the tiniest basket serving 6 to a magnificent basket serving 150.  Each has its own beauty and uniqueness brought out by the choice of colors and sugar flowers…

 Wildflowers garden cakes are created using the very same attention to detail and fine ingredients as my wedding cakes and are available in a wide variety of flavors and fillings.


 Prices for Garden cakes start at $15.00 per serving 


This gorgeous French wire basket in pale sage green and white was created for a television feature for celebrity party planner David Tutera to be broadcasted on the Discovery Channel.  This gorgeous garden cake is brimming with sugar hydrangeas, tulips, berries, roses, leaves and peonies. 

Baskets are wonderful in that they offer different visual vistas at every angle.  Click on the thumbnail images below to see how every angle of the cake holds something new and different. (A new window will open.)

Each side of a basket is unique.  Flowers, colors, and textures complement one another however each angle of the cake holds something different.  Basket cakes have the unique advantage of truly offering a dimensional interest unlike other designs making them an outstanding choice for any special event or occasion.

A word about quality

Wildflowers cakes are created entirely by Chef Lori Ann Blethen.  All consultations are made directly with the Chef and she is responsible for the design, creation, and delivery of your cake. 

When you invest in a Wildflowers cake, you are receiving an entirely hand made confection that has been created using only the finest, natural ingredients.  Artificial extracts are never used.  Fabulous flavors originate from zests, fruits, the finest vanilla, imported chocolates, and simple things like quality flour, butter and sugar.

Sugar flowers are hand sculpted using the Chef's exclusive recipe to ensure that your flowers will withstand heat and humidity.  If handled with care, your sugar flowers will remain beautiful for years to come and serve as a sentimental keepsake of your special day.

In today's day and age where everything seems to be produced in volume, it's nice to know that there remains a special enclave where magic is created...one cake at a time.

















Garden baskets are these breathtaking creations filled with sugar flowers...creating something exquisite and so very natural looking.
