Flavors and Fillings​​

A cake should be as pleasing to the palate as it is to the eyeCakes are a celebration of optimism and the best that life has to offer.   Cove Cakes' creations are richly decadent with aromas that will thrill the palate with a sensation of gustatory delight; a luxury to be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.

All organic ingredients are used when the taste is what it should be. Butter should taste like butter, eggs should taste like eggs and fruits should taste like the fruit it is.  Only the best imported and domestic chocolates are used. Chocolates should have a pure silkiness and depth of flavor that only the Artisan Chocolatier can create.


Your custom cake can be any combination of flavors and textures.  The cake will become your signature creation.


Karen has been trained, as a culinary school graduate, to understand the basic techniques from which derive any exciting combination of flavor and texture.  With such richness and depth of flavor, there is a lingering pleasure and delight that will remind you of what the cake was all about.
