Bella e Dolce!

Bella e Dolce is a cake & pastry company owned by Kim Sperl - and from the emails I've exchanged with her - I know why everyone recommends her! Her company is in Cheboygan which is further north than where we are having our wedding... yet she has been trying to help me taste her delicious cakes - and I think we finally figured it out - I'm going up to Bay Harbor in May for a florist consult & food tasting at the golf course - so she said even though she has 2 weddings on Mackinaw Island that weekend - she thinks she'll be in Petoskey area that Friday and could drop off some samples for us! How awesome is that! I have heard that she is the best in the area even though she's out of the area... so I really hope we love her cake as much as everyone else does! http://www.bellaedolce.com/

From her website:
"Bella e Dolce has been making wedding cakes and catering pastries since 1997. Kim Sperl, owner and pastry chef, is a Graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Paris, France. Her studies included pastry art and design as well as sugar sculpture and chocolate techniques. In addition to her training at Le Cordon Bleu, Kim has also studied with renowned cake designer and author, Colette Peters of New York, to learn the art of sugar paste flowers and fondant.
Each cake and pastry is made from scratch with fine ingredients from around the world. Our handmade decorations and garnishes are sculpted from sugar paste, fondant, chocolate or pulled sugar. While many clients enjoy simple finishes such as buttercream or chocolate glaze, others select our beautiful rolled fondant, a smooth, rolled icing gently draped over buttercream. Bella e Dolce cakes and pastries are available by special order only."
