WASHINGTONIAN BEST VENDOR 2015

NAMED TOP 5 FOR WEDDING CAKES IN WASHINGTON, DC

At The Cake Courtesan, we have a passion for all things cake.  And it shows in every cake we make.  We start by making all of our products completely from scratch and use only the best and highest quality local and organic ingredients.  One bite, and you'll immediately notice how a luxury cake can- and should taste. For us, fresh is best.  There is no other way. Because of this, we strictly limit the number of cakes we accept to ensure we are able to focus on maintaining our high quality standards.

We match delicious flavor profiles with an equally incredible exterior where we focus on making sure no detail is overlooked.  Our cakes, at an impressive 6" tall tier, TOWER above the rest. Edible Gold and Silver details, realistic handmade sugar flowers, detailed lace designs, hand piping and stencils ~ all of our designs are custom made just for you, so we don't have a pick-by-the-number design or approach.  The Cake Courtesan offers a unique cake that showcases the individuality of YOU and your event.  And we work directly with you every step of the way to make sure you get exactly what you want. 

When you want extraordinary, and want a cake that will be the highlight of your reception, contact us and let us turn your vision of cake dreams into sweet reality. 

We have been published both nationally and internationally in Style Me Pretty, Grace Ormonde, Washingtonian Bride and Groom, Munaluchi, Engaged! Magazine, and Cake Central as well as been featured in American Cake Decorating Magazine. We have also won awards on our amazing cake taste. 

We proudly operate out of Union Kitchen in Washington, DC and are licensed by the DC DOH, and the Maryland Health Department.  We are ServSafe Certified and insured and bonded for your safety and protection. 

We hold monthly Sample Box Pickup Days for you to try us out with no obligation, or a Private Tasting held at your place or ours. Contact us today to speak to us about servicing your wedding needs!

Amazing Cake (sooo delicious) The detail and design and care that went into the cake was evident. If I ever need another cake for a function I will order one from Cake Courtesan. This was not a wedding cake so she does awesome cakes for other occasions (and cookies too!!)

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! The Cake Courtesan took time to design our cake which was just as beautiful as it was delicious. I only wish I ordered the cake pops!

We had a "Sweet Table" of a variety of desserts; shot glasses, cake pops, french macacrons, and more. Everything was absolutely delicious and visually appealing. Sharon is amazing with her creativity as well as the quality of her desserts. Nothing plain here! Love you Sharon!! And love your "Pink Champagne"!!!

We wanted something different for our wedding – not the traditional tiered wedding cake but a dessert bar with a options of mini desserts and candy. There are not a ton of companies that do that around this area so we were lucky to find The Cake Courtesan. Sharon and Fay are quite passionate about their work and it shows. They had great ideas for our dessert table (which served 200 people) and it was definitely a conversation piece throughout the evening. I should also mention that their desserts are delicious!! We had pieces of cake, macaroons, truffle balls, layered strawberry shortcake and key lime pie cups, plus a whole candy table (designed with our wedding colors in mind!). I would definitely recommend The Cake Courtesan!

I purchased 3 dozen cake pops for a graduation party to add to the dessert station and asked The Cake Courtesan to make them. All of the cake pops were gone and most of the other standard candy was left. The design, flavor, and overall taste of each of these cake pops were amazing. There are some desserts that are simply too sweet that doesn't allow you to enjoy the flavor of the dessert. Thankfully these cake pops had a perfect balance that were a hit. I highly recommend you hire The Cake Courtesan at your next event, wedding, or party. Well worth it.

The best cake I have ever had! Sharon was able to create the MOST beautiful cake ever with just knowing my colors and flavors. She also made my husband the BEST cake pops he has ever had. I am so thankful for Sharon and her team making our day so special!

Just a note to thank you for the beautiful and most delicious cake for our son's wedding reception. Your customer service was just lovely, too--from answering my first call to your delivery to the venue--you made it so easy! It was the perfect dessert and everyone on the restaurant staff at Fiola kept talking about how beautiful it was. Thank you again.

We couldn't be happier with our cake! It was ascetically phenomenal and even better than we imagined it! We would recommend the Ultimate Carrot Cake for ANY summer wedding, especially one during the day. All of our guests licked their plates clean - even those who thought they didn't like carrot cake! The Cake Courtesan made this process not only effortless, but enjoyable. We're already planning to have the Cake Courtesan help with our next party!
