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, almost two decades 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 2010-2013 and the Couple's Choice Award 2014-2016, "Best of" from The Knot 2012-2015, a spot on the Boston Globe 2011 and 2013 A-Lists 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.
