We had it all meticulously planned. Last year around this time, we had just moved Love Cakes by Dorothy Lane Market into a newly renovated space, located in the front of the shopping center of our Washington Square location. We were excited to reveal it to you with grand opening fanfare this past March of 2020. Although that never happened, we are still thrilled to share with you why this move was a big step for us.
Love Cakes by Dorothy Lane Market is more than just a grocery store cake experience. Our designers are truly artists and are eager to tackle the most creative requests to create something unique for you. Our new beautiful space gives us ample room to create. The best part is that you can see us when you stroll by. Although we are an introverted bunch, it’s rather fun having a passerby stop to admire. It’s even more fun when they step inside to check out our ever-changing cake display.
Hours: Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-6 p.m.&Saturday 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
In addition to scaling cakes to smaller s this year or opting for cupcakes, we are noting that customers are letting their imagination go wild with their designs. We’re talking more ornate and more of a “wow” factor than ever!
Nothing drips with sophistication more than metallics. We are seeing everything from rose gold to gold and silver. Unique scroll work adds texture and additional visual interest.
This technique creates imperfectly perfect edges that harken a more rustic look. Finishing touches range from rice paper to natural materials, like greenery and fresh flowers.
Rice paper is delicately draped layer by layer in ornate designs to create a modern elegance.
Delicate flowers give this design a simple charm that can be paired with metallic accents. Upon closer review, you’ll also note a light dusting of gold paint.
We’d love to bring your wedding cake dreams to life! Stop by, call (937) 535-5719, or email CakeShop@DorothyLane.com to arrange a take-home wedding cake tasting!
