Hello and thanks for checking out my website! My name is Laura Pete and I am the owner of For Pete’s Cake. I have been sculpting clay or whatever moldable substance I can get my hands on since I was a young child. I took sculpting classes during high school at Carnegie Mellon University, in college, and throughout my adult life. Baking has been a hobby for me as well as something that I always found relaxing and enjoyable. One day, I put two and two together and created my first sculpted cake. I am now a self taught pastry chef and sugar artist. After many years of doing cakes for family and friends, I started For Pete’s Cake as a business.
For Pete’s Cake customizes cakes for all occasions using delicious recipes and fresh, quality ingredients. All cakes are baked and decorated to order for your special event. I will assist you in designing a wedding, birthday, or special occasion cake tailored to your personal tastes. From elegantly simple to bold and beautiful to fun and whimsical, I am dedicated to creating and delivering a delicious center piece that everyone will rave about.
I am also part of Icing Smiles, an organization that believes in Baking a Difference. Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. Icing Smiles understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Their goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
I hope you will allow me to work with you to create a custom cake for your special occasion!
