Cakes for Occasions
At the outset, Cakes for Occasions owner Kelly Delaney was a one-woman baking wonder, churning out specialty cakes from a single oven in her mother’s kitchen. Today, just more than a decade later, nearly 30 employees join Kelly to sift, whip, and frost more than 700 wedding cakes each year. The still-expanding business has drawn the attention of many press outlets, including The Today Show, and has earned a multitude of accolades that include the Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award in 2012, a spot on the Boston Globe_’s 2011 A-List for its birthday and wedding cakes, and an appearance on _TV Diner. The legendary lineup of baked goods ranges from four-tiered fondant wedding cakes to tuxedo cake pops, ideal for black-tie food-on-a-stick galas.
