About us

Cakes by Colby is a boutique bakery specializing in custom, artful wedding cakes and special event cakes. Owner and Lead Baker Fran Colby doesn’t just bake a cake – she designs an enchanting, decadent statement. As a former entrepreneurial international interior designer for four decades, who’s designed everything from university campus buildings to hotels in Dubai, Fran understands that it is equally important for a cake to deliver not just on scrumptious taste, but on the elements of a showstopping design: color, texture, scale, and balance.

Turning over a portfolio of interior design for a kitchen, Fran has become a regionally- known custom wedding cake designer, featured on The Knot and Burgh Brides, as well as in local media. She’s been trained by internationally acclaimed cake designer Maggie Austin, who has designed Hollywood and royalty cakes alike. From luxurious and romantic to simplistic and modern, cakes from Cakes by Colby are baked from the finest, freshest ingredients. When you select Cakes by Colby, you can be sure that your wedding cake will not be like any other. It will be completely customized to you and baked entirely from scratch – from the cake to the frosting and even the homemade vanilla fondant.

Cakes by Colby is dedicated to delivering the cake of your dreams for your special day. With a trained eye for the essential elements of design, Fran will bring your vision to life. Whether you dream of an artfully simplistic cake or a towering, sophisticated cake, Cakes by Colby is ready to give you a stunning dessert unique to your wedding, birthday, or any celebratory event.
