About Lael Cakes

Lael is a Brooklyn based boutique cake studio specializing in gluten-free, vegan, or dairy-free optional cakes and desserts. We use our own unique blend of non-gluten flours to make the perfect pastry flour. Alternative ingredients are substituted for refined sugar, saturated fat, and dairy. Our works are vibrantly colored with dyes extracted from the natural pigments of fruits and vegetables. Every scrumptious recipe and elegant design is thoughtfully crafted to thrill the palate and the eye of each client.

    Amazing Allergy-Friendly Cake

    Lael cakes was exactly what we needed for our wedding. The bride is lactose intolerant and all of the dairy-free cakes we've tried before were dry or didn't taste great. Emily was able to create an incredible tasting dairy-free cake and the flavors fit perfectly for our theme. She totally understood the aesthetic of our wedding and the cake matched perfectly as well. The whole process was fun and easy, it was something we didn't have to worry about leading up to the big day.

    I've been vegan for 15 years, and always assumed a traditional wedding cake wouldn't be an option for me.... then, as vegan bakeries got better and better, I found myself a gluten-free partner, and assumed again that we wouldn't be able to have a traditional cake.

    Then we found Emily at Lael Cakes, and what can I say? Dreams do come true. (Yes, dreams. I LOVE CAKE!)

    In addition to the remarkable beauty of her cakes, they taste great. We got three fascinating and fantastic flavor combinations, and people were shocked how good everything was. Though we had a 100% vegan and gluten-free wedding, we had only a small number of veg*an and/or gluten-free guests, so we took a LOT of teasing leading up to the date that people would be smuggling in "real" food.

    They ate their words, and then went back for a second piece of cake.

    Seriously, Emily's cakes are SO GOOD, that they don't get those caveats: "Good for vegan," or "Way better than most gluten-free cakes," or anything like that. These cakes are just GOOD. Light, flavorful, not overly-sweet but still hitting the "cake" note (these are not health foods).

    I'll definitely use her services for special events moving forward, not just weddings. In fact, I might invent reasons to need to order a cake. They're just that good!

    Flavors:
    -Lemon cake with strawberry-basil buttercream
    -Olive oil cake with vanilla buttercream and fresh figs
    -Ginger-spice cake (think somewhere between gingerbread and carrot cake) with orange blossom buttercream

    A brilliant cake and top notch experience

    How to even begin describing the incredible experience we had with Emily? She truly made us the most stunning wedding cake. The wedding cake of our dreams! People who were not even at our wedding are STILL talking about how insanely gorgeous our wedding cake was.
    Working with Emily to create our marvelous cake was also a dream. We came in with a vague idea of what we wanted, but, together, we shaped our vision into reality. Emily was patient, kind and encouraging of all our ideas. She also is extremely creative and resourceful. She advised us on what fruits would be in season and where she would order them from and presented us designs of her creative concepts after several discussions with us. She talked us through the implications of different flavor and texture combinations and advised on artistic directions that would flow with the vibe we wanted at our wedding. In the end, she created a luscious three tiered pavlova, resplendent with seasonal fruits and berries, that was not only gorgeous to look at (our guests were in awe!), but was also delicious! For an unforgettable wedding cake experience (in the absolute best way possible), there is no other choice: you must go with Lael!
