  • In Italy, "la dolce vita" means to slow down and enjoy the better things in life. With Maria Giacona at La Dolce Vita Bake Shop, you will only get the best! Maria is extremely approachable, listening to every idea you have and offering innovative ideas to improve your dream sweet. But let's forget all that, and just talk turkey... or cake in this case. If baked goods were words, Maria would put Shakespeare to shame! Her cakes are light and moist, while still being flavorful and rich. Her frostings melt on your tongue and envelope your mouth with flavor. In addition to creating amazing sweets and baked goods, Maria has a keen eye for design and arrangement. Whatever delicious treat you decide on will be presented with loving care and artistic flair. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth with style, then call Maria at La Dolce Vita Bake Shop and start living the sweet life!

  • Maria did a fantastic job with our wedding cake. We tasted cakes at two other bakeries before choosing to go with Maria after hearing positive reviews about her cakes from several other vendors. Her cake was by-far the tastiest. When we came in for our tasting, my fiance and I commented that it was some of the best cake we'd ever had. She allowed us to pick three different flavors with three different flavors, and they were all delicious. The cake she made for us was also aesthetically very beautiful and it suited our tastes perfectly. She asked us lots of questions about what we wanted the cake to look for ahead of time, and the finished project matched up with our vision very well. Finally, I think she was pretty reasonably priced for the quality of the product. I highly recommend her.

  • Maria did a fantastic job producing our wedding cake. We were planning our wedding from out-of-state, and we drawn in by the beautiful photos of her past work online. Her website was also very informative to give us ideas for flavor combinations and pricing before contacting her. After contacting her, Maria was very personable and excited to work with us. Maria was very flexible to schedule our tasting and meetings during short windows while we were in Auburn. She had great ideas on how to execute the design we imagined from photos, and she worked seamlessly with our florist to place a real flower as the cake topper. We had 3 different flavors, and we still debate which was the best, as they were all so delicious. We had no concerns going into our wedding day, and the cake was absolutely perfect. We recommend Maria wholeheartedly for any event!

  • "La Dolce Vita" was so wonderful to work with. We did not have a CLUE what we wanted to do with our cake prior to our consultation. Maria simply listened to the plans we already had, my dress, my flowers, etc. and came up with a perfect design--Actually she came up with 5 perfect designs that were extremely hard to choose from! She went above and beyond to make our cake perfect for the big day. She even practiced certain techniques specifically for our cake to make the wedding cake even more unique!! We have many sweet lovers in our family and friends and they still discuss how delicious the cake was! Cannot wait to eat the topper in a few days! Maria was extremely easy to work with and she made our cake spectacular. It looked almost as good as it tasted! Truly wonderful service. Would recommend her to anyone and will use her in the future!

  • Maria is one of the most amazing people I have met. She has done many cakes for me but our wedding cakes blew me away. She captured exactly what I was looking for and also made a awesome grooms cake which was a favorite to most of our guest. Her cakes taste just as good as they look. Her carrot cake is one of our favorites and we cannot wait to eat in on out firat anniversary! Thank you for always blowing me away with your talent!!

  • Maria is everything you would want in a professional. She arranged a organized and easy to do tasting. We were able to get exactly what we had planned. She then made a design to match the theme of the wedding. She is an artist, and all we heard at the wedding was that the cake was amazing. We are still enjoying the cake today. I can't imagine going anywhere else. I would highly recommend her services.

  • We found Maria and La Dolce Vita through our wedding planner, and are soooo glad we did! Maria is a talent and makes incredibly delicious cakes. Maria jumped right into our theme of warm winter comfort, and put together a 5-tier beauty with 3 custom flavors. We loved the entire process - she came to my parent's house with a variety of cakes and frostings, which we got to mix and match. Basically one of the best parts of the entire wedding planning process! When I finally saw the cake on our wedding day, it was really beyond anything I could have imagined. And the best part was, it tasted AMAZING. Moist, rich, but not overly sweet. It was hands-down the best cake I've ever had. Ever. We got so many compliments from our guests, and basically every plate was licked clean, an accomplishment after a big dinner. We loved working with Maria, and would recommend her to anyone. She was so easy to work with, prompt with her pricing, and creative with both the flavors and design.

  • I ordered a beautiful red velvet wedding cake with cream cheese frosting as well as 3 different kinds of cake pops for my desert bar at my reception. Guests snatched up the cake pops and they were gone in a blink! Maria has a lot of creative flavors and we went with hazelnut, spice and funfetti, all of which were huge hits! Everything looked and tasted amazing! Maria is so sweet and very talented. She listened to my vision and created the perfect cake for me with a gorgeous handmade sugar peony accent. If you are looking for an energetic, personable and experienced baker that will deliver a perfect and delicious product, this is the place!

  • Maria was amazing to work with!! She is very relaxed and calm and knows exactly how to make any kind of cake or dessert arrangement you might need. I have celiac disease and she was able to do every single thing gluten free for us!! Amazing. The cake was exactly what I had imagined! The cupcakes were adorable and everyone was so impressed by the presentation of both.

  • I loved working with Maria for my wedding cake! She was super flexible, sweet and made the cake tasting enjoyable! I sent Maria some photos and she totally delivered. At the last minute, I had her make a small cake for my bridesmaid, whose birthday was on the same day as my wedding. I didn't give her any direction, and didn't expect much. When I saw the cake I was so happily surprised! She had obviously put a lot of time and effort into making this little cake look great for my friend, and even added her name on the side. In addition to making beautiful cakes, Maria makes DELICIOUS cakes. We were so happy with the way everything turned out.
