This gluten-free red velvet cake layered with lavender-rosemary buttercream, adorned with fresh blooms was the perfect fit for Esther & Peter's intimate wedding reception. 


The Knot - winter 2014

So thrilled about our recent full page features in The Knot! One being a more traditionally iced tiered cake adorned in white sugar orchids, while the other is a modern crepe cake layered in fresh raspberry-rosewater icing. 

All vegan and gluten-free, imagine that! 



"Sugar-sculpted flowers are a signature of Lael Cakes, the boutique cake studio owned by Emily Lael Aumiller in Brooklyn. Inspired by Karl Lagerfeld's froufrou dress for fall, this pink fondant cake has row upon row of flirty petals."

Bare & Naked!

Vegan & gluten-free chocolate cakes layered with espresso icing, blackberries and figs! Small sugar tarts filled with lavender ganache and blueberries accent the table. 

"Inspired by the tale of Sleeping Beauty and the new Disney movie Malificent, out today in theaters, this group of industry experts set out to craft a wedding that gives a whole new meaning to the term Happily Ever After. It’s a gorgeous display of classic fairytale-esque details crafted by Availendar + lush florals by Black Dahlia and imagery by Allan Zepeda that showcase a moody meets whimsical affair."

Lael Cakes @ Haven's Kitchen!

We are very excited to share that Lael Cakes will be offering baking and decorating classes at Haven's Kitchen. Our first class will be held this May 19th at 1 pm. During this class Emily of Lael Cakes will demonstrate the basics of making a layered vegan and gluten-free cake. Using a variety of alternative ingredients and in-house recipes that she has developed over the last decade, Emily will cover methods of substituting refined sugars, saturated fats and dairy. This session will also showcase Lael Cakes unique blend of non-gluten flours for the perfect replacement to traditional pastry flour. Emily will show students not only how to mix and bake a delectable vegan and gluten-free cake but will also demonstrate how to whip up the perfect icing to fill and decorate your cake.
