Guess what day it is?!!? Friendor Friday! This really is a highlight for me to talk about my friendors in the industry and to showcase their amazing talents. Today I want to introduce to you Elysia Root or Elysia Root Cakes. She’s an amazing Chicago wedding and event cake designer and exquisitely talented…. And the cakes truly speak for themselves in design and taste! I love working with Elysia, to see how she creates perfection in her art and how it all comes together on our client’s amazing day. When I know we are sharing a client, I get so excited as I can’t wait to see the delicious art Elysia Root Cakes create.

From modern and contemporary to sophisticated and elegant, we can create the cake of your dreams. Every cake created by the Elysia Root Cakes team is always couture, always custom and always uniquely you.
Describe Your Ideal Client: One of our favorite clients came into a cake tasting and simply stated that ‘Cake matters!’ Weddings take so much time to plan and there are a great number of details involved. Our clients have discerning taste and want to create an experience to share with their guests from the venue to the decor, to the cake – we love creating a cake that fits in seamlessly with the overall look and feel of the wedding. And we think it fitting that our cakes not only look beautiful, but are also a delicious end to an amazing meal for your guests.
