We're not trying to be the Cake Boss or win a cupcake war, we're just trying to earn extra income doing something we love to do!

The Cake Elf specializes in cupcakes and cakes for your family celebrations, birthdays, baby showers, work parties and even special thank you's for your work associates and clients! We deliver in Orange County--and might even drive a little farther for a special occasion!

Our cupcakes and cakes are tastey and fun and we love to customize them for special occasions! Our cakes are made from combinations of boxed mixes that we "doctor-up," recipes from grandmas, friends, magazines, the Food Network and anywhere else we can find them. (We're not snobby about where the cake comes from-just that it tastes great!) We mostly use delicious buttercream frosting recipes so if you're looking for the pretty--but not so delicious or edible--fondant on your cakes, you'll have to look elsewhere. Also, if there is a flavor you really love that's not on our list, just let us know and we can find a recipe just for YOU!

(Email us if you're in need of special gluten-free or vegan cakes or cupcakes! Thanks to friends, we have recipes for both!)

The Happiest Customer on Earth!

This past week I had the opportunity to make cupcakes for a little girl who was having a party at her last ballet class.  She was graduating and moving on to another class and was celebrating with her classmates.  When her and her mom came by to pick up the cupcakes, I brought them out to the car and wanted to show them to her to see if she liked them--she has special needs and I knew she would be totally, 100% honest if she did or did not like them.  I'll NEVER forget the expression on her face when I opened the box to show her the dancing ballerinas on the top of each cupcake! She was SO happy and so excited--the look of pure joy written all over her face.  It was singularly the best response I'd ever received since starting the Cake Elf and if I was to start this little business for no other reason than to make a difference to her, then it was worth it. We should all be so fortunate to find simple joys like this throughout our days.
