Flashback to my early days, when I was working FT in another career, and hustling cupcakes, cakes and treats anywhere, and everywhere I could.
Because I knew, deep down, that I wanted to bake, but I didn't think I was good enough to go for it...
Then I learned that my skills weren't holding me back - I was.
If I didn't start believing in myself, nothing was going to change.
That's why I'm so passionate about sharing as much as I can about my journey, hoping that it inspires someone out there to take a chance on themselves. Because we are all worth it. 🖤

Delivery & set up - what does that entail??
It’s SO important to ask these questions during your cake consultation so you have a clear expectation regarding the process and overall final appearance of your cake!
Also, delivery & set up is typically an additional fee so you’ll want to know what you’re paying for 🤔
::ASSEMBLY::
For me, I travel with full assembled 1, 2 & 3 tiered cakes. For 4+ tiers, there is assembly required on site. This means that depending on the design, some time may be required on site in order to complete the overall look.
::PLACEMENT::
Most cakes cannot be placed in direct sunlight, whether your reception is inside or outside. Talking to your baker about the placement of the cake within your venue is really important to make sure everyone is on the same page. Personally, I love connecting with your onsite planner, so we can work together and ensure your cake will be safe and showcased at your reception.
::PROPS::
You want to think about any additional accessories you’ll want for the display of your cake. For example, a cake stand and special cake cutting knives if you are planning a more formal cutting ceremony. You also want to connect with your venue and baker to ensure the size of your table, cake stand and the height/tiers of your cake line up the way you’d like, visually.
::STYLING::
These are the fun extras - a floral arrangement on the cake table, special settings for your cutting ceremony, framed photos, candles, etc. Think of this as an extension of your table scape. Will your planner, venue, baker or even photographer be responsible for setting this scene? Personally I love to partner with your venue to style your cake table to match your vision. Those finishing touches are so fun!
We talk through all of these details during our wedding consultation 🍾🥂

From boardrooms to baking trays – my journey has been filled with ups and downs. I'm grateful for every step of this wild ride and I'm here to share anything I can that might help others who are finding their way💫
There's a lot I wish I knew when I was first starting out in my career, in my 20s. If I could go back and give that young woman some advice, this would be it.
You have no idea what you want, and THAT'S OK!
- This is your time to find yourself. There is SO much time! Don't panic. Don't compare yourself to others - this is your journey. Make mistakes, mess up as much as you can and find out who you are, at your own pace.
Trust your Gut
- And before you can even trust it, learn how to listen. How to check in with yourself, how to clear the noise around you and create a relationship with yourself. This will be the most important relationship with yourself.
Set boundaries
- Boundaries that protect you, your mental health, your passions, your livelihood. Notice the patterns that become toxic and disrupt them.
What advice would you share with yourself as a young adult? What's a lesson you've learned the hard way? Tell me in the comments 👇

Welcome to Marlie Bakes! I wanted to share a little bit about myself and my business for anyone who’s new to following this page 🖤

I’m the owner and cake designer behind my home-based cottage Bakery - Marlie Bakes Cakes! I’m a wedding cake designer, specializing in custom buttercream and ganache cakes, cupcakes and cake treats! While I’m trained and experienced in many different cake techniques, my signature design (and love language!) is palette knife painted floral cakes 🌸

I’ve spent the last 20 years working in many different facets of the food industry, from marketing & public relations to professional bakeries and food retail. I’m a proud graduate of the French Culinary Institute’s Pastry Program in NYC and I have always dreamt of starting my own business.

I’m a total sweets lover - I blame my father and grandmother for teaching us that no meal is complete without dessert! I like to bake a lot of things, but cake has always called to me. I love playing with flavor and texture combinations and I’m always looking to learn a new technique.

In addition to creating cakes, I spend all of my time with my two spunky kids, my partner and Scottish Terrier Angus. I’m originally from upstate NY, but have spent most of my adult years living in NYC and northern NJ.

I’m so excited to create cakes and treats that inspire beautiful moments for those in my local communities and beyond.

I hope to learn more about each of YOU! Feel free to drop any comments/questions/requests below!

Calling all brides & grooms! Are you going big, or keeping it small?
I’m seeing both! There are certainly pros and cons of going for the traditional large wedding cake or a simple cutting cake for the couple 🖤
I love to see couples break the mold & choose a small cutting cake with individual cake servings for their guests - the possibilities for dessert are endless!
