We’re continuing our Oklahoma Cake Artist Spotlight Series with none other than Allison Dake of Brown Egg Bakery! Ely Fair Photography captured this incredible local talent at Waters Edge Winery. Allison’s unique and original designs never cease to amaze us. Stay tuned as we continue to share more incredible Oklahoma wedding cake artists!

About the Design
I’ve been dreaming of a design that included some amazing hand painted gold Empress Cicadas that I saw for sale online. I was toying with the creative process on how to apply bugs to cake…and, still have the end result look appealing. I kept the overall design simplistic, and really put the extra time and detail into the Cicadas. I wanted them to be the standout, yet remain soft and approachable.

About the Artist
I look at cake as an opportunity to showcase flavors! When I design cake flavors, I put a massive amount of time into creating and perfecting the flavor profiles of each cake. I would like to think I create cake for foodies…people who care about the way the cake tastes just as much as they care about the way the cake looks! Building a one-on-one relationship with clients is integral for weddings. When clients decide to book their wedding day with me, they essentially book me for the entire week of their wedding.  I don’t ever overbook weddings or offer consultations on weekends simply for this reason.

Perks of the Job
Being able to sit down for a design meeting and tasting with clients is such an awesome experience! Building a one-on-one relationship with clients is integral for weddings.
