Our wedding bakery interview today is with Lisa of Delicious Desserts, based in Massachusetts! Enjoy:
Tell us about your company and how you got started?
Delicious Desserts is a custom bake shop specializing wedding cakes, special occasion cakes and Cake Truffles. I started Delicious Desserts 21 years ago after deciding corporate America wasn’t for me!
When did you first start baking?
I’ve been baking as long as I can remember!
Do you do bespoke/custom flavors? How about gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, or other specialty options?
I create custom flavors whenever I can. I always encourage and help my clients to create their own “signature” flavor – a distinct combination of cake and fillings that reflect their personality. I do not do gluten-free, lactose-free or vegan.

What is your favorite cake and frosting combination?
It changes all the time!!! Right now, it is chocolate cake with coconut cream filling. Last week it was anything with cookies and cream filling. Next week I think it’ll be chocolate cake with peanut butter filling or white cake with lemon cream filling!

Huge question!!!! BE PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO!!! And, you can take my online class at Craftsy.com: How To Start A Cake Business (shameful plug!!)

How fun with the design and FLAVORS!!! Everything about the wedding is a reflection of the couple, and I LOVE when their personality if reflected in the flavor choices. If the bride or groom LOVES funfetti, do it!! Your guests will love it!!!
