Thank you for taking the time to check out my work, I am blessed to do what I love, and strive to truly create edible art that tastes spectacular! Please take some time to look through my photo gallery but keep in mind that everything I create is very custom for every individual client and the sky is truly the limit as to what I can do! I love a challenge and I love creating the perfect cake for each individual.
Why Choose Tamara’s?
I consider myself more than anything a cake artist, my vision is to create edible art that tastes amazing. It is most important for me to design a cake that is totally a perfect fit for each individual client.
My personal philosophy is that a wedding cake artist can not be limited by his or her price structure. Meaning that when I sit down with a couple, 99% of my designs are included in my base price for fondant or traditional iced cakes. That way I have the freedom to sketch out a design that fits a vision we build together without adding on for every little detail. I love what I do and hold the “cake artist” title close to my heart.
I have been decorating cakes since I was 19 (and not to age myself… but that was 18 years ago) throughout those years I have done literally thousands of wedding cakes and even more special occasion cakes !
I opened the doors at Tamara’s “the Cake Guru” in 1997. I have won numerous awards, been included in Nation Wide press. But most importantly I have worked with amazing fun couples and clients creating cakes for their once in a lifetime events. Read more in my About Me page
Your and your Guests’ Taste Buds…
I’ll let my clients speak for themselves…. “The cake tastes as amazing as it looks”…. “It was stunning… and so delicious. My favorite was the strawberry cheesecake swirl”… “the Chocolate Raspberry cheesecake torte is too die for”… “we could hardly pick from all the flavor choices, and they were all moist and delicious, our guests raved”…. “if you are serving Tamara’s cake, I’m there”
Consults are by appointment only, and include a one-time taste test of up to 4 flavors of cake or cheesecake/ torte for no charge. A variety of icings are available at the tasting & fillings if available. For the appointment choose the 4 cake flavors and Tamara will provide icings and fillings that are available on request onsite.
During Busy season appointment times may be limited. Please keep in mind that I meet with each couple individually for a design consult, which means that during prime wedding season (May- October) meetings are generally done on Monday’s and/or Tuesday’s. Weekend and Thursday/ Friday appointments are extremely tough during Wedding Season since I am working on wedding cakes those days, and I want every wedding cake to be my first priority. I appreciate understanding of this as I am sure you would love for me to be focusing on your cake 100% on your wedding week. I will do my best to fit in special requests if possible for out of area couples, etc.
When you come to the appointment feel free to just look, gather ideas, or bring ideas. When we sit down to meet, working together, my goal is to design a perfect cake based on your style. Each cake is designed per each clients request, and is custom for each and every couple, rarely do I do the same exact design twice, so please…. have fun, be inspired! For your appointment you may want to bring any color palette ideas, inspirations, photos of cakes you like, floral ideas, possibly gown design, whatever inspires you.
