Quality is My Priority
The Fancy Cake Box was created by combining a love of baking and a passion for art. Like many, Mary Ann’s fascination with both began at a very young age. If she wasn’t in the kitchen with her mother and grandmother, creating a sweet treat or holiday dessert, she’d be off in her own world with a pencil and sketchbook in hand. Today, you can find Mary Ann in her studio perfecting recipes, creating edible flowers and decorations, learning a new technique, or sketching designs for her clients.
Her cake studio is a sanctuary to all things cake; it’s where she bakes and creates all of her masterpieces. Mary Ann specializes in creating unique and personalized cakes that will be the centerpiece of your wedding reception or event.
In addition to providing every client with personal and professional service, her priority is to deliver a delicious cake that your guests will rave about. Therefore, all of her cakes, butter creams, and fondant are made from scratch, with only the finest ingredients.
“I love inviting clients into my creative space to chat about their wedding ideas over coffee and cake”

Mary Ann was a complete joy to work with- not only was she super sweet, she was professional and responsive. She made coming up with a design easy and brought great ideas to the table! Apart from the look of the cake, which was gorgeous, the taste was amazing! Our guests kept telling us how good it was.Sent on 12/06/2019

Beautiful Focal Point
First, I cannot write this review without saying what an absolute pleasure Mary Ann is; she is such a nice person and really listens to everything you ask for when it comes to the look and taste of your cake. She was always accessible via email or telephone, and constantly kept us updated with the timeline to get information back to her and also sketches of what our cake would look like. Our wedding cake adventure with The Fancy Cake Box began with our cake tasting in Mary Ann's home. We had looked at some other cake vendors in the Lake Placid area where we got married, but their decorative skills paled in comparison AND they were very costly for what you got. We had what I liked to call a "woodland fairy tale" sort of wedding, with Adirondack-woodland charm. Naturally we wanted a birch cake. Now, I'm sure you've seen some "birch" cakes out there that are just white frosting with black lines...that is what other bakers do. Mary Ann is the real deal! Mary Anne crafts her cakes in such a way that it looks like legitimate tree bark! Our cake was so realistic and rustic in the most beautiful way. Then she also made gum past flowers that perfectly matched our cake topper and were so pretty! The cake was a real focal point at our wedding reception.Sent on 10/28/2019
So after all of that, you might think that to have a large cake and so amazingly decorated, it must be dry or taste like typical wedding cake...not so! Mary Ann is seriously skilled. Everyone was raving for weeks after our wedding over how moist and delicious the cake was. She makes her own fondant and it's actually good! Our cake flavor was maple with a vanilla buttercream, and it was SO GOOD! We can't wait to eat the top tier for our first anniversary!!
If you're getting married in upstate NY and want to have the prettiest and most delicious wedding cake, that will fill you with present tastiness and wonderful memories for years to come, then you should go with The Fancy Cake Box!
The Fancy Cake Box's reply:Julia, you have overwhelmed me to tears with your wonderful and detailed review! Planning this past year with you was just the best experience and we created a beautiful cake together. Knowing the look you wanted, made my part easy...we created a cake dream come true for us both! Thank you for allowing me to play a role in your wedding celebration. May you and John be blessed with a life time of happiness, good health and prosperity. xoxo

beautiful and tasty wedding cake
Mary Ann created the perfect wedding cake for us, it was everything that we had asked for. It was five tier with a beautiful cascade of flowers running down it. Everyone raved about the taste and were astonished by how beautiful it was. I can honestly say that she is the best wedding cake baker in the area and that if you want a cake that will blow everyone away, you should go with her. She is very professional and will not disappoint you.Sent on 09/30/2019
