Eat: Maggie Austin Cake

Maggie Austin Cakes tasting

Me, Sara Bauleke (Bella Notte), Lisa Shulz (Posh Planner), Alex Pare (Cherry Blossom Weddings), Lee Van Buiten (Savoir Faire)

I first heard about Maggie Austin Cake one morning while watching the Today Show’s Wedding. Maggie’s cake was one of the choices for viewers to pick! Lucky for me, Lee Van Buiten of Savoir Faire Wedding Planning Services organized a tasting with Maggie a while back. As some of you may now, I’ve been dancing ballet since I was 4 years old so I was very excited to hear that Maggie used to be a ballerina with the Joffrey Ballet until an injury ended her career. After dancing, she attended pastry school and the rest is history.

Maggie’s combination of ingredients are so interesting and different from standard wedding cakes. While her cakes start at $10 per slice, they really are a work of art and her attention to detail is extreme. The one below is my favorite. — Vicky
