ABOUT US – MEET THE KAKE KREW

The little pink and white house that sits in the middle of historic Laurel, Maryland can be deceiving, you might even drive by it, before the sugary aromas hit the back of your head, causing you to make a U turn.

But make no mistake, this home grown bakery is creating everything from elegant wedding cakes, to your wildest dream-come-true cakes and cupcakes that are tasty miniatures of their absolutely fabulous cakes. The cakes are moist, bursting with true flavor and incredibly artful. In one example, a three in a half inch heel replica of a Jimmy Choo Shoe crowns the Tiffany box shape, yellow almond flavor cake, that was skillfully frosted with their famous butter crème icing.

Diane - the Kake Lady

Better known as “The Cake Lady” owner, Diane White knew she had something special when her cake orders started coming in droves. A single mom, trying to make ends meet, found herself up in the wee hours of the night, seven days a week filling orders in her kitchen. Luck would have it, a little shop that sat in the middle of Laurel was up for sale and the rest is history.

Her recipes start off simple, but it’s her secret added ingredients that take her kakes and kupcakes to another level. Don’t be bashful if your thinking of a cake design that would make most bakeries say “WTH,” she has a creative team that welcomes every design. Her flavors are plentiful and pure, and she promises the best pineapple upside down cake you’ll ever taste.
