Kristin Kato A Cake Life

Owner and cake artist, Kristin Kato, opened her award-winning cake shop, A Cake Life, in July 2009 with the belief that “THERE’S NO LIFE LIKE A CAKE LIFE!” The company specializes in creating customized cakes for any occasion, including weddings, birthdays, bridal or baby showers, corporate events and special parties.

All cakes are custom ordered, and customers can select from traditional wedding or birthday tiered cakes, cupcakes, cupcake wedding cakes and sculpted cakes. Each cake is quoted individually based on size and intricacy of design.

Some of the most popular flavors include Yellow Butter Cake with Fresh Strawberry Cream filling and Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting.

While creating individual handmade sugar accents can take hours of detail work, the feeling of reward when someone is thrilled to see their cake on their special day is the most gratifying experience of all. So let A Cake Life add some sweetness to your day!
