C. Kelsie Delisle, the founder of Kelsie Cakes, has been in the cake decorating industry for over 7 years. Prior to her professional debut in Atlanta, Georgia, she started playing around with cakes in her home kitchen (when she had to stand on a chair to reach the counter!) Kelsie's resume includes boutique bakeries in both Atlanta and in Tampa, FL as well as two regional grocery store chains.
Kelsie studied Business Management from Saint Leo University (class of 2012!), and is always continuing her sugar arts education, taking classes, and attending conventions. She is a proud member of ICES and is in love with the community and sweet spirit of her fellow decorators. Kelsie enjoys participating in cake decorating competitions, where she can stretch her skills and talent and be inspired by the beautiful work of her peers, mentors, and role models. Her first competition was at the first North Florida Cake Show, where she took home the second place ribbon in the Professional wedding cake division.
The Sugar Flower Collection
Recently, Kelsie's focus has been on creating beautiful and unique sugar flowers to provide brides, as well as bakeries and caterers, with more options when creating their own spectacular wedding cake. And so, when you combine a love of sugar flowers with a business degree, and pop it in the oven at 325 for 45 minutes, you get: The Sugar Flower Collection
The Sugar Flower Collection is a unique and creative set of handcrafted and painted gumpaste flowers, suitable for using on cake, in bouquets, or in displays. The flowers are made from an edible medium and decorated with beautiful foodsafe pigments. Some non-edible, non-toxic materials such as wires, floral tape, stamens, and metallic colors are used, and as such, it is not recommended to consume these flowers. However, they are safe to use on your cake!
Each flower is created from start to finish from hand and made with love and care. Please allow time for your custom flowers to be created, and order with plenty of time in advance! Please also note that while every care has been taken to ensure your flowers arrive safely, breakage can occur. Please order extra flowers as needed, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if your order has been damaged during shipping. More information can be found on our FAQ page!
