Holiday Giveaway #5: Del Ray Cakery
Today we’re featuring Del Ray Cakery in our Eight Days of Del Ray Holiday Giveaway. Throughout the month of December, we’ve partnered with several members of the Del Ray Business Association to offer giveaways to our readers. Keep reading to find out how to enter!
Katie and I have enjoyed many a cake pop, truffle, and cupcake from Del Ray Cakery at our own and friends’ gatherings. Rebecca is a also a past sponsor of DIY Del Ray and last winter, she brought a vanilla cake with butter cream frosting for everyone to taste and cake pops to swap to our Del Ray Food Swap. When in a pinch, we also know we can find a cake pop for sale at Artfully Chocolate on the Avenue.
Here is owner and pastry chef, Rebecca Underly with her friend Danielle Turner at the Taste of Del Ray welcoming the thousands of people who flock to Del Ray to sample and vote on local fare. (Danielle deserves a shout-out on her own merits, as a food writer and stylist, photographer, and personal chef with Great Taste – A Personal Chef.)
Before starting her own business in Del Ray, Rebecca was a pastry chef for many years at The Blair House, the President’s guest house. There, she created desserts, pastries, and fine chocolates for presidents and heads of state. She can make these delicacies for you too. Today, more typically, she creates absolutely stunning cakes for weddings, birthdays, and other special occasions.
She does amazing 3-D cakes with perfectly rendered fondant details.
Rebecca makes each cake pop by hand, dips them in Belgian chocolate, even spikes them, upon request, with bourbon or scotch. Oh my.
You can see a variety of the sweet treats Rebecca has made for weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, baby showers, high tea, garden parties, dinner parties, corporate gifts and events, and more, on her web site.
