Association of Bridal Consultants Aspen Fact Caravan: The Makery

I had the privilege of rooming with Desiree, the owner of The Makery in Centennial, CO. “Desiree, the originator of The Makery concept, has always had an affection for art. When her little sister told her she was getting married, Desiree offered to make the wedding cake. She took traditional classes, which led to the discovery of her hidden talent. She has since taken classes with famous sugar art instructors, been featured on food TV, and received a business degree.”

At the Whispers of Spring Bridal Show at The Butterfly Pavilion, I was able to taste some of Desiree’s cake and let me tell you, her cake is phenomenal. I am a frosting lover and sometimes joke that cake is merely a vehicle for frosting, but this cake was amazing. The flavors were balanced, the butter-cream light and fluffy, and the Bavarian Creme that served as the filling, was the best I have ever had.

The Makery is a Channel 7 A List Top Five Bakery. The unique concept of The Makery was developed by Desiree:
“What is The Makery?

It’s like a paint your own pottery store,
but for cake, cookies, gingerbread, etc.
