Utah Wedding Cakes

A wedding cake is something that needs to both look good, and taste good. It can be daunting to decide which cake artist you should choose to bring your vision to life! I’ve had the chance to work with quite a few cake artists, and one of my go to Utah wedding cake artists is Heather with Top Tier Confections. I had the chance to interview her about her business, and you can find more about her and what sets her cakes apart below!

Why Cake?

While Heather has always loved baking, starting her own cake business was never part of the plan. A few years ago, she found herself baking a cake for a friend getting married. After making this cake, Heather realized that she had some natural baking talent! She took notice of this but continued with her bachelors and working while only periodically made cakes. It was only after returning back to the U.S. after studying abroad that Heather decided to kick off her business. This happened in 2020, and Heather has been making cakes since then.

Custom Cake Design

Working with Heather is fulfilling and satisfying. Through her consultations and discussions with her clients, she learns about their entire wedding vision. She then incorporates details from other areas of the wedding into the cake design to make the cake uniquely suited to each couple. Instead of being an afterthought, the cake becomes the binding piece of the event that ties all of the details together.

Heather’s favorite part of working in the wedding cake industry is seeing how her couples and guests react to the cake as she sets it up. Heather spends hours of time designing and then baking and decorating her cakes, and this is why her favorite part of the process is seeing that her work paid off!

What sets Heather’s cakes apart, is that they not only look good, but taste good. She doesn’t use non edible materials in her cakes, and only uses the finest quality of buttercreams, fondants, and molding chocolate among other things.

Cake Pricing

When it comes to choosing a cake artist, Heather believes that lower prices aren’t necessarily better deals. Many people set a vision for their cake and decide on a budget, but then fail to do the research to see if it is possible to meet their vision within their budget. Researching pricing beforehand allows couples to come to terms with reality and make the best choice when it comes to choosing a cake artist and design for the cake.

Utah Wedding Cakes

It can be hard to know who to trust with your wedding cake, but I can confidently say that Heather is someone you can feel good about working with. She is passionate about personally designing each cake to suit your needs, and will design the cake to not just look good, but taste good. If you choose Heather to make your wedding cake, you won’t regret it!
