EDIBLE WORKS OF ART: Welcome to Ale’s kitchen, where it isn’t enough just to create exquisite looking cakes, she puts her whole heart and soul into each design to make sure it is not only delicious, but an original, edible work of art. Raised in Brazil, Ale has cherished memories of cooking and baking with her mother. After taking numerous baking courses both nationally and internationally, Ale began baking purely as a part-time hobby in 2007. This journey led her to working alongside Carrie and creating hundreds of handcrafted cakes in a profession that she is passionate about. With each cake being more mouthwatering than the last, she is constantly pushing the boundaries of cake design and impressing couples and guests at events across the state of Utah. Here is a sampling of the design styles and handcrafted cakes she can provide.
Round and Square Multi-tiered Cakes • Handcrafted Wedding Cakes • Whimsy and Glam Cakes • Grooms Cakes • Special Occasion Cakes • Cupcakes • Buttercream and Naked Cakes • Special Occasion Cakes • Custom Cake Designs • Holiday and Seasonal Cakes • Fresh Flower Cakes • Gluten-free Cakes • Dairy-free Cakes • Vegan Cakes • Catered Cake Tastings •
TLC’S BEST TASTING CAKE: Cake. by Alessandria taste every bit as good as they look. Having been awarded Best Tasting Cake on TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off and numerous Utah’s Best of State awards, it’s no wonder Cakes by Alessandra are in such high demand. More than ‘just a pretty face,’ these delectable desserts aren’t just to gaze upon, but meant to be tasted and enjoyed. With flavors like Bourbon Pear, Raspberry Swirl, Lemon, Hawaiian, and Almond Amaretto it’s hard to pick just one, which is why many brides and grooms select multiple slices for their guests to enjoy. When it comes to the fondant, Ale’s Cakes are a cut above. It is soft and pliable when sliced, and Ale always ices the cake with buttercream before covering with a thin layer of fondant. This gives you the breathtaking beauty of artistic fondant without the bitter after-taste. Always moist and flavorful, Ale’s Cakes are widely known for fondant that tastes like buttercream.
Does your cake design require gluten free, dairy free, or vegan options? Ale has got you covered. Not only does she always use only the finest, freshest ingredients but all the above dietary restrictions can be accommodated without sacrificing fabulous taste or design.
If you want a sampling, cake tasting can be arranged. Come see and taste for yourself why Cake. by Alessandra books out months in advance.

TALK OF THE TOWN: If you’re ready for Ale from to create a delicious work of art for your wedding or special celebration, please peruse what a handful of previous clients have had to say:
“I went with Carrie’s Cakes [now Cake. by Alessandra] for my wedding cake, and it couldn’t have been better! The ease of communicating with Ale was seamless (and I was a destination bride). Also, the tasting was one of our favorite parts of planning our wedding – we got so many great options and Ale sent us home with some to go, which we enjoyed later that night. In addition, Ale’s cakes are GORGEOUS, taste amazing and her prices are completely fair (trust me, I did lots of research). I cannot recommend Ale more – she was the perfect vendor!” – Courtney / Bride 2020
“WE LOVED CARRIES CAKES! We aren’t from the Utah area, but we planned our reception in Orem. I was recommended to reach out to Ale by Cooper Brown (from One Above Entertainment). Ale was so quick to respond, I was honestly shocked haha. She prepared a tasting box for us to pick up since our schedules didn’t match up to meet in person. WE LOVED ALL THE FLAVORS. We primarily communicated via email and her responses were so quick! She was so patient with me and helped me decide what kind of style I wanted for our wedding cake. When COVID progressed, we had to delay our reception, and she was able to make the adjusts we needed to without a problem. Our cake was a hit! Our guests would take one bite and they were amazed at how good it was!! Our cake was perfectly moist and not overly sweet with the buttercream frosting!!!!!!”
—Alicia / Bride 2020
“Ale, as soon as I saw the cake, I just about cried! It was exactly what I imagined! I loved it so much! And I was constantly getting amazing comments on it as well! Thank you, thank you so much! It really was perfect! Thank you again in helping make our day perfect.”
– Brielle / Bride 2019
