Sunday Rose Cakes
Hey there! I am Lautonia Robinson: A stay-at-home mother of gorgeous twin girls and a dedicated military wife of more than 25 years. I have always believed in living by the standard that “your home is your sanctuary, and should feel and look like a page out of a beautiful magazine.” While taking care of my family, I discovered my passion for interior design and love for gardening, and, of course, baking. My adventure with baking began while making a delicious raspberry-laced vanilla cake for my family. I simply could not get the icing to become perfectly smooth, so as the perfectionist I am, I attended a local cake decorating class to help me make my icing absolutely delectable and perfectly smooth. Instructors began to notice and praise my passion for precision and elegance; therefore, I was asked by my instructors to join a cake decorating team of professionals. This is where it all began.
The name, Sunday Rose Cakes, was thought of on a beautiful, summer Sunday morning. As I was sipping on my morning coffee, I admired my hard work and attention to the details of my flower bed filled with beautiful, perfumed roses. Thus, I knew that Sunday morning that each one of my cakes would be treated like the flowers in my garden. Each one being its own masterpiece, which I call “The Sweet Elegance of Cake Artistry.” There is nothing more beautiful than an elegant cake with delicate sugar flowers to adorn them.
My favorite part of being a baker and artist is delivering personalized, beautiful wedding cakes to couples in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV). Seeing the couple’s style and hearing the couple’s story allows me to create the perfect wedding cake that is unique to the occasion. It is of the upmost importance to me that my clients have a part of themselves and what they love showcased in their cake design. I absolutely love the details of making edible lace and sugar flowers that make each cake a personalized art piece. I want my brides to have not only a beautiful cake, but a delicious cake with the highest quality ingredients. When I am not baking, I am on Pinterest and researching the upcoming cake design trends to share with my brides-to-be.
I look forward to having the privilege to design and deliver unique, beautiful cakes to the wonderful people of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Let’s talk cake soon!
