This sweet bakery is a true boutique-style cake company. Cut The Cake specializes in wedding, groom’s and celebration cakes. Sharon and Cyndol are a spunky, mother-daughter team that are taking the Orlando Cake industry by storm. With a storefront in Kissimmee and a bakery servicing all of Central Florida, their cakes are beautiful and delicious! We had the opportunity to learn more about this growing business, here is what we learned:
How did Cut The Cake get started? We are a mother/daughter team between jobs and started the business part time for extra cash. Which was 5 1/2 years ago during the housing/market cash. Before we knew it we went from part-time to full-time within 7 months we were full-time cake artist. Cyndol tried to run the bakery while Sharon worked a full-time job. But because we grow so quickly Sharon had to quit her Administration job to work full-time at the bakery.
What should couples expect when hiring your team? Great customer service and a quality product which is delicious. We design our customers’ cakes together and the couple becomes part of that team. When the wedding day comes, the couple can see their masterpiece which they helped to create. Once they chose us they become our family too, the Cut The Cake family.
How customizable can a client be with the product? We are known for our cakes because we think outside the box to create the cake of the couple’s dreams. We have made themed wedding cakes such as the Tardis from Doctor Who to a thirteen-tier princess cake. If you can dream it, we can make it happen.
What is your favorite part of making a cake for a wedding?
We love making memories, plus we get to meet so many lovely families, from so many cultures and backgrounds. You get to hear so many wonderful stories such as where the couple met, the exciting places they have traveled, you get to know their families and how wonderful they are and you get to hear family stories like the one couple’s parents had 10,000 guests at their wedding 35 years ago. And every time a couple picks us to make their wedding cake, the honor is all ours that for one day we are part of their family too.
What is your favorite cake trend at the moment? “Gold everywhere”. Gold to us is very elegant and classy. We airbrush gold, paint gold, stencil gold, gold prints, gold fondant accents and it is all edible.
Do you only make wedding cakes? We make cakes and desserts for all occasions. Birthday’s, Baby Showers (next after marriage), Corporate events, to gender reveals. We have made a cake for almost everything.
Do you only take weddings in Central Florida? We deliver cakes everywhere, even out of state!
What is one tip that you could give to a couple looking to hire a bakery for their wedding? Order in advance, maybe 6 months before the wedding. Especially if your cake is very detailed. You want to find that cake person that can make your dream cake come to life. The weddings are all about the couple, not anyone else. This is your day to shine, so shine brightly!
