About

On WeddingWire since 2023

A centerpiece cake is an expression of your style, your values, your story, and your very identity. For a wedding specifically, your cake is central to your entire day! Your cake must be a beautiful one-of-a-kind art piece that’s designed specifically for the two of you, with crafted art that can’t be purchased online. Not only does the design symbolize your entire celebration moment, but the inside of the cake presents the special opportunity to conclude your event with the grand crescendo you deserve. There’s too many bland, dry, and boring cakes to choose from—these need to be a thing of the past. Your cake should be personalized with the eye of a designer and with the culinary expertise of a pastry chef to realize the delicious art piece of your dreams. If you find it important for your wedding day to be an expression of who you are, then we should honor your identity as a newly married couple with a cake that appropriately represents this big moment. Can you put a price tag on life-long photos of a centerpiece cake you’re proud of? I can’t—let’s showcase your story!

Amazingly delicious cake and gorgeous design

Connor is amazing to work with and made us the most beautiful wedding cake we could have dreamed up. He uses buttercream for his artwork so all parts of the cake taste great (no dry, hard fondant). The wedding cake was moist even after we froze some leftovers and enjoyed 2 weeks later. We truly recommend Connor and his amazing baking and design skills.

Most Beautiful Wedding Cake Ever

Connor is a magician! On short notice and without any inspiration photos, he was able to create my dream wedding cake that matched my colors, flowers and vibe perfectly.
The taste was beyond my expectations. Almost all guests complimented me on both taste and decor.
Connor is the absolute best in the business.

Hello and welcome to Connor's Craft Cakes! I am fairly new to San Diego and California all together. I moved to Encinitas in the summer of 2022 after honorably separating from the US Air Force. My professional background is far from cake baking, but my passion has always lied with creating delicious food.

Originally from Bend, OR, I graduated from the University of Portland in Oregon in 2017 with a bachelor's in Civil Engineering and commissioned directly into the Air Force through ROTC. After applying this subject as a Bioenvironmental Enginering Officer in the Air Force for 5 years, I decided it was time to shift from the corporate setting and pivot to do what I love.

Although, I didn't land on cake baking immediately. For years I have been making cakes for friends' and family's celebrations, but only by accident did I turn my artistic oulet into a business. In the summer of 2022 I made three cakes for my brother's family going-away party here in North County San Diego, and the crowds raved about them and asked for business cards and contact info. I chuckled at the positive reactions, but pretty soon decided to take the feedback seriously.

Now I have quickly become licensed and permitted, begun designing and baking for weddings, bridal showers, birthdays and everything in between. It's so rewarding to develop new craft flavors that you can't find in the store or even in local bakeries. I'm excited to continue developing new flavor combinations that will blow you away!
