Introduction: I am a personal chef who creates custom meals for families and who makes wedding and specialty cakes from home. Since I don't own a bakery, I have low overhead and can make custom cakes at lower prices than my competitors. I am a graduate of Johnson and Wales University, with a degree in culinary arts. I have worked for multiple families in the Austin area, my clients trust me to come into their homes and create beautiful and healthy dinners for their families. If you are interested in a wedding cake, let me create a custom sketch for you, or send me a picture of your dream cake! I can make any flavor you can dream of, and you will get a completely customized experience! If you are looking for a personal chef, lets talk about what types of meals you envision for your family and your lifestyle. I cook all genres of food, yet more than anything I am a CUSTOM chef and create the meals that will make you happy. I look forward to working with you.

Erika was such a pleasure to work with I don't even know where to begin. I appreciated her professionalism, responsiveness, attention to detail and overall enthusiasm for her job. She spent a lot of time looking at various inspiration images and hand sketched my dream wedding cake. I never imagined having a cake as beautiful and tasty as the one Erika made. My reception dinner room was minimal with light flowers and a gorgeous sunset peaking through the massive windows. I made Erika's cake my center focal point set on the steps above, looking down on the guests. It was absolutely STUNNING! I cannot tell you how many compliments I received on the cake. Erika really put me at ease throughout the entire process and I would recommend her to everyone and anyone! Thank you Erika for making my dream wedding cake!!

Wow, Erika's work is amazing! We hired Erika to make our wedding cake as well as a groom's cake. We communicated through email, which made the process easy for us and the times that we met we got together at local coffee shops. One of the things that I loved was that Erika made 12 cupcakes, 4 different flavors that we had picked off a list she had sent us, so that we could see what we liked best. And her flavors are so unique! We ended up picking 2 flavors for our wedding cake: red velvet and pumpkin spice. And the groom's cake was italian cream. Everybody loved them! And the milk crumbs that she puts in the middle really put her cakes over the top. An additional plus is that she let us borrow a cake stand with a small deposit that was returned to us when we returned the cake stand. All around fantastic service and fantastic cakes!

Erika made the grooms cake for my wedding. Erika was very professional and answered all my emails in a timely manner. Erika went above and beyond on the groom's cake and it turned out better than I could have imagined. I could rave for days about how good the cake tasted. Erika knows what she is doing and I would highly recommend her.

Erika made cupcakes for our wedding (we substitute cup cakes instead of a big wedding cake) and they were delicious!!! Hands down they were some of the best cupcakes we ever had. I would recommend Erika to all my friends and family if they ever needed a chef or cakes/pastries. We got a ton of compliments throughout the night from our guests how tasty the cupcakes were.

FAQs

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Custom wedding cakes with custom flavors! Also, cupcake towers are incredibly popular!

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Think outside the box! Just because you have a small budget, doesn't mean you need a plain white wedding cake. I enjoy creating designs much more than anything else! I want the cake to tell a story about the couple, and that doesn't cost any extra.
