History of Kelsey Elizabeth Cakes
Kelsey’s always loved baking and decorating, and in 2012 she turned her hobby into a career when she opened Kelsey Elizabeth Cakes, a party boutique with all kinds of sweet cakes and adorable treats for a quick indulgence, small party, or huge celebration.
She studied under Peggy Porschen (a well-known European cake designer) of the Peggy Porschen Cake Academy in London and stayed with Peggy for a bit after to work on sugar flowers for her new cake collection once she earned her diploma.
In addition to sugar flower design, Kelsey studied baking, tiered cakes, wedding cakes, and piping techniques at the academy. She’s also studied sugar flowers with Maggie Austin, fondant work with Erica O’Brien, and Lambeth method piping with Wendy Kromer.
Kelsey has been featured in Reader’s Digest and on the Katie Couric Show among her other accomplishments.

Her cakes are known for being classy, chic, tasteful, and full of possibilities. You can customize the intricacy, colors, details, artwork and more, although the price will reflect the complexity of your cake.
