About

Le Petit Gâteau is a charming bakery creating delicious and beautiful cakes, pastries, and desserts. The name, meaning “the small cake” in French, is indicative of our recipes being European-inspired with an American twist. Everything we create is meticulously crafted with artistic finishes that are sure to impress at first look and first bite. Whether it's a simple and elegant cake or something truly unique as the two of you are as a couple, we know you'll see and taste the difference of what a pastry artist can create for you. Our goal is to take one part of the wedding planning off your hands so you can focus on other matters. We accomplish this through our years of experience in the wedding industry. Our knowledge, professionalism, and creativity will have everyone talking about your wedding cake.

As a full-service bakery, a variety of other dessert options are available for your special day. We can create dessert tables with macarons and other small desserts. Our breakfast pastries are available to you to have while you're getting ready on your wedding day or for a brunch you're hosting for out-of-town guests. Our croissants are frequently described as the best croissants this side of the Atlantic.

Le Petit Gâteau is a from-scratch kitchen. Our pastry chefs use unbleached flour, cane sugar, European-style butter, cage-free eggs, organic vanilla, Belgian chocolate, and in-season fruit. There are no bags of cake mix or fillings in this kitchen. In addition to being educated and trained in the pastry arts, Le Petit Gâteau's owner and head pastry chef is also a trained visual artist who brings his talents to every cake and dessert he creates.

    Absolutely gorgeous, everybody-approved wedding cake!

    Chef Chris at Le Petit Gâteau truly helped make the wedding cake of our dreams -- even amid a pandemic! From the start, he made the whole process easy, from the tasting to our actual wedding day. We had a three layer cake, the perfect amount for our 50-person wedding plus the top-layer to save for our anniversary. Chris recommended making the bottom layer a vanilla cake, which was such a brilliant choice, as my husband and I definitely were all about that cake smash! So, there were ultimately no issues with any cake staining the white dress.

    For the top two layers, we went with red velvet with a cream cheese filling, which was the fan favorite! While not the most traditional wedding cake flavor, Chris encouraged us to go with our heart (and tastebuds), and we are so glad we did! It was absolutely delicious, as was the vanilla layer with a mango-papaya filling. As a guest, I have definitely had my fair share of mediocre wedding cake that is too dry, not super tasty, or poorly decorated, but Chef Chris's was the exact opposite. It was so moist, flavorful, and beautifully decorated. At the end of the evening, even our photographer pulled us aside and asked who made our cake because she said it was truly one of the best she'd had -- and I can only imagine how much wedding cake she's tried in her lifetime!

    Additionally, communication from Chris was great, with him dropping the cake off at the venue early with clear directions on how to store it until it would be displayed at the reception and tips on how best to store our top layer so we can enjoy it on our first anniversary. Without a doubt, my husband and I recommend Le Petit Gâteau and Chef Chris for any and all wedding cake needs.

    Incredible cake and experience

    Le Petite Gâtaeu was able to bring my vision to life in intricate and thoughtful detail. They created a stunningly creative cake reminiscent of an impressionist painting that perfectly matched my color scheme, and even better, tasted incredible! I can honestly say I've never seen anything quite like it before, and have yet to since my wedding. I had several cake/icing combinations to fit a variety of flavor choices so everyone was able to find something they loved whether it was fruit based, chocolate, or vanilla. They also provided delicious macarons in beautiful colors coordinated to the cake. My experience with the ordering process was professional and you could tell they truly cared about me, my fiance, and making our day special. I would highly recommend this professional and talented bakery to anyone looking for a highly personalized and delicious experience!

    Chis is awesome

    We had a great experience working with Le Petit Gâteau. Our wedding cake was amazing! One of my favorite touches was the anniversary cake that was baked fresh for us so we didn't have to eat frozen leftovers. I always tell friends and family about Chris when there is a wedding in planning.
