I have always loved to bake and I have always loved to eat cake since I was a little girl. In 2005 I decided to start formal training and took my first course. It changed my life - learning from expert specialty bakers helped me know that this is what I wanted to do. Since attending my first course, I've earned advanced baking certificates and baked many cakes.
I started the business by baking cakes for friends and family. Cakes for birthdays, graduations, retirements and then weddings! I baked and created my first Gingerbread House in 2007 and entered a contest for charity. It placed Second in 2007 and entered the contest again in 2008. It won First place in 2008!
In 2009, I entered the Annual Mt. Mushroom Festival in Irvine, Kentucky and won First Place in the professional division.
My cakes, cupcakes and frosting are homemade and since I am the owner of Cakes by Ellie, each cake gets my special attention to every detail. My most requested cake flavor is Wedding White followed by Chocolate Chocolate Chip. There are so many fillings it is hard to suggest what the favorite is. Classic Butter cream, Chocolate Truffle or Ganache over Butter cream certainly top the list.
Your cake idea is limited only by your imagination!
I am always experimenting with new cake recipes, fillings, frostings and designs, so never be afraid to ask for any ideas you may have. Since every cake is individual, prices vary. Please call to discuss your ideas and determine a price. (859) 624-2137
