Your cakes called—
they’re craving handcrafted, nature-inspired Sugar Flowers

Leave the hunching over the counter meticulously placing stamens & petals to me.

Set down the spatula.

And if the order calls for a 50-bloom bundle like hydrangea or lilly-of-the-valley? Hoo boy.

  • the oven going off
  • the mother of the bride calling for the 80th time
  • the clients ringing the door to pick up their tasting, and
  • the wedding planner calling to tell you this weekend’s bride switched florist companies again

And that’s without being interrupted by:

It takes an average of 26 minutes to make one Sugar Flower.

Beautiful. Intricate. Breathtaking.

What clients are saying...

— Alexandra

It was a gorgeous addition to my grandmother's 100th birthday cake. The packaging was great and protected the flower to the day we used it. Very easy to attach to the cake. I followed all the directions given by the seller's video, regarding storage and application. Thanks again.

— Laura

First of all, these are so beautiful and so easy to use! Secondly, the seller packaged them SO well for shipping! I’ll be using them on my wedding cake in a few weeks and I’m very excited! Would buy again!

midnight release

you're willing to stand in virtual line for 2023's official Modern Magnolia launch like it's a Harry Potter midnight release

Since you love my Sugar Flowers so much that

It was an early December morning when I started my annual Analyzing The Numbers for 2022.

You know, looking at what sold well, what didn’t, what needs to be sacrificed to the inflation gods...

My bestseller of 2022? The one and only redesigned Magnolia.
(Who I’ve christened Modern Magnolia cuz she’s way more trendy than Original Magnolia) ✨

Modern Magnolia was y’all’s favorite...
...but she’s also mine.

For one thing, I love that she doesn’t break during shipping as much as her older sister.

For another, I love how distinctly Kelsie Cakes she looks.

This is a style I've spent the last 7 years crafting and honing, and Ms. Modern Magnolia is my prized creation.

After crunching the numbers for this year, I realized I need to raise my prices by at least 30-40%. 

The Presale Details

The Delicate-But-Durable Shipping Guarantee

I know how stressful this industry can be– with deadlines and shortages and difficult clients– and I’m here to alleviate stress, not cause it. It is never my intention to disappoint my clients. I’m only human and if I get it wrong, and you didn’t get a 5-star experience from the beginning, I’m going to make the situation right.

My goal—
save you time without compromising your quality or artistic vision

This industry is tough, but
you don’t have to go it alone.

I got your back.

“I need assistance from an amazingly helpful, highly responsive expert, and suggestions for designing my cake.”

if you're thinking...

Decorating cakes for a living isn’t for the faint of heart
(no matter how glamorous Netflix tries to make it look)—
you work looooong nights and weekends and spend
so many thankless hours in the kitchen.

→ Even when the spotlight is on your cake at the wedding...
→ Even when your cake tastes as incredible as it looks...
→ Even when you’re featured in national bridal magazines...

it ain’t easy!

I see you, small business owner feeling
overworked and overwhelmed,
trying to do allthethings.

I don’t want you settling for less-than-amazing
cake decorations just because
other suppliers let you down.

My customer service > Amazon’s customer service.
(just sayin’!)

Hey there, I’m Kelsie!

I sure do! I offer local pick-up if you're in the Tampa Bay area, but most of my customers are from around the country (and the world)

I've shipped to every state except North Dakota, and I'd be happy to ship a flower straight to you, too!

Plus, since the presales won't ship until after the holidays, we can breathe easy that the mail service won't be quite as stressed!

do you ship the flowers?

After crunching the numbers for this year, I realized I need to raise my prices by at least 30-40%.

Since you love my Sugar Flowers so much that you're willing to stand in virtual line for 2023's official magnolia launch like it's a Harry Potter midnight release, here's my thanks to you— 40% off your magnolia flowers for the first 50 people.

Plus, I'm only one person and 50 magnolias is about the max I can create in between wrapping Christmas presents and gathering tax documents!


Sugar Flowers are shelf-stable at room temperature, due to their sugar content and low moisture. Keep the flowers out of direct sunlight (it can fade the colors) as well as extreme heat/cold, and especially out of humidity. Some refrigerators are very humid and can cause the flowers to melt, so I recommend placing the flowers on your cake just before serving. Each flower arrives in a box suitable for storage and comes with a care guide.


Every Sugar Flower is created by me from small-batch handmade gumpaste. Because I do not run a large industrial manufacturing facility, my flowers will not be the same “bright white” shade that you will find from other companies. The white flowers have a soft creaminess to them, which makes the flowers look less commercial and more handcrafted.

 However, if you leave the white flowers exposed to UV light for too long, the color will become even more ivory so I recommend storing the flowers away from UV light or in an archival safe container.

Why does my white open rose look ivory?

Your flowers will be carefully and lovingly packaged up to be ready for shipping on January 2nd.

Shipping takes about 3-5 days in the US via the Post Office with standard shipping.

Rush shipping is also available at checkout. If you are concerned about your order arriving in time, please contact me with your event date to confirm that the flowers will arrive before your event.

How soon will I receive my flowers?

Short answer: no.

Sugar Flowers are made with edible ingredients (gumpaste, egg whites, sugar) however they also contain non-edible materials such as wires which are used to hold the petals together and arrange the flowers.

The wired flowers are not meant to be eaten, and should be removed prior to serving your cake.

Are Sugar Flowers edible?

I've shipped thousands of flowers, and I've found the best way to safely package your flowers is with lots of padding and fragile stickers! I've had very few packages arrive damaged.

In the unlikely event that your flowers are damaged during shipping, please contact me to file your claim. Send in photos of the broken flower and packaging, and we’ll work together to figure out if you need a repair, a replacement, or a refund.

Is it safe to ship the flowers? What if they break?

I love this question! Even though I'm the one creating Sugar Flowers for your cake design, you are the visionary.

I’m here to help make your life easier, because let’s face it, creating wedding cakes is a time commitment and you don’t always have time for making flowers.

My goal is to complement the detail and artistry that you put into every one of your cakes.

You can think of me as your “white label” Sugar Artist.

What if I only make my Sugar Flowers in-house?

  • Step one is to place your order!
  • A highly trained sugar artist (that’s me!) will carefully craft each flower and leaf by hand. For this presale, I'm only making 50 magnolias.
  • Every flower will be carefully packaged (seriously, I can spend hours delicately wrapping up individual petals) and shipped to arrive the week of January 2nd.
  • Finally, the fun part: unboxing!
  • You’ll receive an email with resources and videos to show how to unwrap, store, and use the Sugar Flowers on your cake – no matter what size.
  • I’ll follow up with you and you can ask me any questions you have about your cake design, the flowers, or anything else!
  • If any flowers were damaged during shipping, we’ll work together to figure out if you need a repair, a replacement, or a refund.

What is the process for working with you?
