Raquel’s Creative Cakes is a home based bakery registered and inspected by the NC Dept. of Agriculture. We are located in Bryson City, NC (in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains) and service all of Western North Carolina. We offer custom cakes and specialty desserts for all occasions: elegant to whimsical wedding and commitment cakes, fun bridal or baby shower cakes, birthday wish cakes, sentimental anniversary cakes, holiday or any special event cakes. Specialty desserts for rehearsal dinners and catered events are also available.
Our cakes are never pre-baked or frozen. We use the freshest ingredients available. All cakes are covered in our homemade buttercream. If your design requires the use of fondant, we use Satin Ice Rolled Fondant which is used by some of the world’s renowned cake designers seen on TV food shows such as “Ace of Cakes” (Food Network), “Cake Boss” (TLC), “Food Network Challenge”, “Ultimate Cake Challenge” (TLC) and more.
Raquel has over 20 years experience baking and decorating cakes so you can rest assured that she has the knowledge and skill to create the cake of your dreams. She has also taught cake decorating classes for over 10 years and has spent many hours perfecting the techniques necessary to make works of art that are as tasty as they are beautiful. Billie, a former cake decorating student of Raquel’s, is a naturally gifted cake decorator and a gum paste artist.
