From Naked Cakes to Podcast Recordings: July Is Heating Up at Cakewalk Chicago!

Updated: Jun 30

Hey Cakewalk Chicago Village!

We've preheated July to perfection! ☀️

Get ready to whisk up some memories with fun workshops, special events, and fresh energy at Cakewalk Chicago.

Top Wins & Community Love

We're all about supporting your cake businesses, and that's why we offer an incredible range of supplies and resources. While I don't take custom orders often, sometimes a special request comes along that can't be passed up! Recently, neighbors approached me to create a cake for their outdoor wedding, and I couldn't resist the challenge. I delivered a stunning naked cake (think trendy, minimal frosting) adorned with Cakewalk Chicago brand 100% edible gold leaf and real edible flowers that braved the Chicago heat! This beauty, filled with mouthwatering raspberry & fudge filling, went straight from the kitchen to the 95-degree outdoor wedding venue – no on-site stacking needed! (Chicago's bumpy streets are no match for our cake expertise!) See what my fan club had to say. Stay tuned for upcoming tiered cake classes, where you can learn to create showstopping with solid foundations cakes yourself!

We're celebrating! Cakewalk Chicago is a proud recipient of a $10,000 Backing Small Businesses Grant presented by @AmericanExpress, in partnership with @Main Street America. This grant allows us to further empower YOU through learning opportunities like our fun and informative summer workshops! Bonus! Aspiring young bakers attending our youth workshops will have the chance to showcase their newfound expertise at the Beverly Farmers Market before summer's end!
