  • After being turned down multiple times by other bakers who could not accommodate all my food allergies, I was so grateful to finally find Lael Cakes. I needed someone who could prepare a Wedding Cake that was gluten free, dairy free, and soy free. I started feeling super defeated during my initial search and was just hoping I would be able to have the traditional experience of cutting and eating my wedding cake with my husband at our wedding. The second I got in contact with Emily Lael, all my fears immediately went out the window. Emily is professional and patient and made me at ease with her years of experience with specialty cakes, especially ones made with ingredients to substitute flour / dairy. On top of how accommodating Emily is with her ability to make cakes for my specific allergy concerns, her cakes are beyond delicious. Her flavor offerings are sophisticated and balanced. She offers an array of options that left us with a lot of hard decisions since ALL of them tasted s... Read more

  • Our wedding cake was incredible! Seriously one of the best tasting cakes we've ever had, and our guests were stunned by the beautiful design. Lael worked hard with us to create our vision, was very communicative, and was flexible with last minute delivery changes.

  • We loved our vegan, gluten free cake from Lael. It was so delicious and beautiful! I highly recommend ordering your cake from them. We ordered a strawberry basil cake adorned with fresh fruit and edible flowers. We were thrilled with the way it turned out.

  • I was so happy I used Lael for my wedding. Emily’s cakes are delicious — light and airy with creative, natural flavors. Our two flavors — lemon with thyme and vanilla with peach and basil — were perfect for our summer wedding where natural green accents and herbs were central to our design. Emily was super responsive and we had the most lovely tasting at her studio. I definitely plan to use Emily for cakes in the future!

  • Would give 10 stars if we could! When thinking about a cake for our wedding, we had completely given up on finding something gluten free that would both look and taste good! We can firmly say that Emily’s cakes were the most delicious that we have ever had; her flavors were extraordinary and our guests were even more floored to hear that they were gluten free. The sugared flowers were even so gorgeous that I thought that they were real until we cut our cake. Apart from being delicious and gorgeous, Emily was so kind and listened to our ideas, turning them into a finished product that exceeded our own creative vision. Already thinking about future parties to throw so that we can commission another cake from her. Needless to say, we would recommend her to anyone and everyone (in fact, we already have)!

  • Emily was so lovely and helpful through the whole process, and she absolutely went above and beyond in every way. She made for our wedding day not one but two cakes - one of which was a near-exact replica of my grandparents’ wedding cake (which Emily was able to recreate from a weathered photograph taken 60 years ago) to celebrate their anniversary. Not only are her cakes absolutely beautiful, but they are so incredibly delicious that we haven’t stopped thinking about them 6 months later. The only decision you’ll have trouble making is which flavor to choose - they are all amazing!

  • Lael cakes was exactly what we needed for our wedding. The bride is lactose intolerant and all of the dairy-free cakes we've tried before were dry or didn't taste great. Emily was able to create an incredible tasting dairy-free cake and the flavors fit perfectly for our theme. She totally understood the aesthetic of our wedding and the cake matched perfectly as well. The whole process was fun and easy, it was something we didn't have to worry about leading up to the big day.

  • How to even begin describing the incredible experience we had with Emily? She truly made us the most stunning wedding cake. The wedding cake of our dreams! People who were not even at our wedding are STILL talking about how insanely gorgeous our wedding cake was. Working with Emily to create our marvelous cake was also a dream. We came in with a vague idea of what we wanted, but, together, we shaped our vision into reality. Emily was patient, kind and encouraging of all our ideas. She also is extremely creative and resourceful. She advised us on what fruits would be in season and where she would order them from and presented us designs of her creative concepts after several discussions with us. She talked us through the implications of different flavor and texture combinations and advised on artistic directions that would flow with the vibe we wanted at our wedding. In the end, she created a luscious three tiered pavlova, resplendent with seasonal fruits and berries, that was not onl... Read more

  • I've been vegan for 15 years, and always assumed a traditional wedding cake wouldn't be an option for me.... then, as vegan bakeries got better and better, I found myself a gluten-free partner, and assumed again that we wouldn't be able to have a traditional cake. Then we found Emily at Lael Cakes, and what can I say? Dreams do come true. (Yes, dreams. I LOVE CAKE!) In addition to the remarkable beauty of her cakes, they taste great. We got three fascinating and fantastic flavor combinations, and people were shocked how good everything was. Though we had a 100% vegan and gluten-free wedding, we had only a small number of veg*an and/or gluten-free guests, so we took a LOT of teasing leading up to the date that people would be smuggling in "real" food. They ate their words, and then went back for a second piece of cake. Seriously, Emily's cakes are SO GOOD, that they don't get those caveats: "Good for vegan," or "Way better than most gluten-free cakes," or anything like that.... Read more

  • Overall, the cake tasted good and Emily made a beautiful cake, however it was quite expensive (obviously we knew that going in). We needed a gluten-free, vegan cake for our wedding and had limited options. If you have these dietary restrictions, we would definitely recommend Lael cakes.
