You’ve gotten stuck between springing a flower order on an unprepared florist (hello, wilted petals in mere hours!) … or worse, constantly refreshing your Amazon app waiting for those “Free 2-day Shipping” packages to get a tracking number.
You’ve wished for an add-to-cart situation that served up high-end elegance in an easy-to-navigate online shop filled with nature-inspired Sugar Flowers—expert guidance, sturdy packaging, and reliable shipping?
You’ve got a vision to bring a client’s core memory to life—but need a reliable, artistic sugar engineer to bring the confection to life (and within a deadline, to boot)
Hi! I'm Kelsie Delisle—
A cake decorator turned Sugar Artist who has loved flowers and cakes since those early days as a toddler making “mud pies for the birds” in my backyard.
Now I have a toddler of my own, and oooh boy do I have intimate knowledge of what “so much to do, so little time” means.
I’ve been working in the cake industry since I was fresh out of high school (don’t remind me of senior year when I was going to college full time and working 2 jobs while also somehow making cakes for my friends).
In bakeries large and small, I saw that though cake artists wanted high-quality flowers for their cakes, they couldn't dedicate the time to create them.
So I hung up my oven mitts, and I stopped making cakes. Now I focus on my creative passion: Sugar Flowers!
Since starting Kelsie Cakes seven years ago, I’m so proud to offer flowers that are sturdy enough to ship around the world but delicate enough to look real.
And I offer both ready-to-ship flowers for last-minute orders (hey, we’ve all been there) and fully custom floral arrangements for high-end wedding cakes. My goal is to save you time without compromising your quality or artistic vision.
Bottom line: I love helping other cake designers complete their edible masterpieces with handcrafted Sugar Flowers.
I work from my home studio in Tampa, FL, and ship flowers all over the world. When I’m not working, I’m either napping, playing outside with my son, or watching hockey with my husband. (But probably napping.)
Fulfill my bucket-list dream of taking a class at Ron Ben-Israel Cakes in New York?????? 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Now the fun part! Your flowers are carefully wrapped up for shipping (seriously, I’ll spend an hour on it if I have to). You’ll receive personalized instructions (and videos) on how to store & use the flowers …and I’m only a phone call away if you have any other questions.
Once your quote has been approved (we’ll decide together on the flowers, colors, quantities, and design) you can sit back and put your feet up while I get to work! I’ll send you photos for your approval of the final product.
Then, it’s off to the mail to arrive safely at your door. 💌
Do you need custom flowers, or do you need something quick? This step is the easiest: browse the shop to see what you like, and grab your favorites.
If you need something more custom, reach out with your cake details and I’ll create a quote and a sketch.
Then I’ll break out the cornstarch and get to work.
“Received the order on time and it was just perfect. The size was right, the color was just what I wanted. Whereas when I make flowers from gumpaste, I am sure I could not have made one to be as beautiful as this one and having it saved me a lot of time and stress wondering how it would turn out.”
“Kelsie is AMAZING!!! We spent several months figuring out the type of flowers and getting the color just right. We had a slight miscommunication during production and had to redo the flowers after they were shipped. She corrected them and shipped in record time. If I ever need any sugar flowers for anything else, I will buy from her.”
“OMG! Kelsie was the queen of our wedding cake and she didn't even get to share a slice. Her flowers were amazing. They arrived as pretty as their pictures and completely intact. She made our homemade wedding cake look like it was a professional masterpiece! I look forward to ordering from her again when we host our anniversary bash!”
