The Face Behind the Cake
Hi there! I’m Laura, owner and sole baker/designer/decorator at Laura Joy Bakery. I am mostly self-taught, and I am always trying to learn new techniques and skills. When I graduated from college with a studio arts degree, I never imagined this is where I would end up. My plan was to be a graphic or web designer. I tried out many trades before finding my true passion, desserts! When the show Ace of Cakes aired, I thought it was amazing, and I needed to try my hand at making jaw-dropping cakes. I loved it and started my quest to make cakes or other desserts at every chance possible. I did (and still do) tons of research to learn as many techniques as possible.
One of my first cake jobs was a wedding cake for my husband’s boss. From there I got a job at a local bakery making specialty cakes and cupcakes. It was amazing, and I learned so much. After a year there, I decided it was time to focus on my other calling, being a mom. I left the bakery to be a full-time mom.
Over the years, while raising my babies, I have taken every opportunity to make more specialty treats. Now that my kids are older and I have more time, I want to make treats for you too! I specialize in cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, and cookies, but I am always eager and ready to try something new. Send me any dessert idea you have, and I will do everything I can to make it happen! I can’t wait to make your parties, events, and any other occasion more memorable!
