We're not trying to be the Cake Boss or win a cupcake war, we're just trying to earn extra income doing something we love to do!

The Cake Elf specializes in cupcakes and cakes for your family celebrations, birthdays, baby showers, work parties and even special thank you's for your work associates and clients! We deliver in Orange County--and might even drive a little farther for a special occasion!

Our cupcakes and cakes are tastey and fun and we love to customize them for special occasions! Our cakes are made from combinations of boxed mixes that we "doctor-up," recipes from grandmas, friends, magazines, the Food Network and anywhere else we can find them. (We're not snobby about where the cake comes from-just that it tastes great!) We mostly use delicious buttercream frosting recipes so if you're looking for the pretty--but not so delicious or edible--fondant on your cakes, you'll have to look elsewhere. Also, if there is a flavor you really love that's not on our list, just let us know and we can find a recipe just for YOU!

(Email us if you're in need of special gluten-free or vegan cakes or cupcakes! Thanks to friends, we have recipes for both!)

My first "Walt" cake!

I was so excited to be asked to make this "Walt" cake!  It was a double-layer, chocolate fudge cake with a creamy chocolate-hazelnut filling and marshamallow/vanilla buttercream frosting with custom-made candy flowers all around it!  Such an honor to be asked and so much fun to create! 

This cake was requested for a special award that Anna was receiving...the Walt Disney Legacy award. One of the first Cast Members to EVER receive the award too!  Way to go Anna!

Caroline's Princess Doll Cake!

My first doll cake! This was a great, fun cake to make--learned a lot this time around--and can't wait to make one again!  Caroline got me all teared up when I saw her expression when she first saw her cake--she was SO excited and almost squealing--pure toddler JOY! Makes me want to make her one of these cakes every day! Happy 3rd Birthday sweet Princess Caroline!
