Bella e Dolce has been creating wedding cakes and pastries since 1997. Pastry Chef Kim is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Paris, France. She travels around the world, searching for the highest quality ingredients, seeking out inspiration for innovative new designs, which come together in the unique and delicious combinations Bella e Dolce has to offer. Each of Kim’s cakes is made from scratch, and the decorations/garnishes are all handmade. While many clients enjoy simple finishes such as buttercream or chocolate glaze, Kim can also create cakes with fondant, texture, color and carved shapes. The possibilities are endless. At tastings, which are available by appointment, bridal couples can sample all cake and filling flavors, then create their favorite combinations. Once those are chosen, design details can be discussed with Bella e Dolce staff and chefs.
Bella e Dolce will be expanding in 2014 to include a Southeastern Michigan location. “Bella e Dolce-South”, based in Walled Lake, will be owned and operated by Pastry Chef Erin, a graduate of Schoolcraft College Culinary Arts, as well as a long time employee and friend of Kim’s. The Bella e Dolce-South location will also offer available tastings sessions for clients being married in Northern Michigan.
