About Us

Award Winning Cakes & Desserts

I remember my very first Cake Decorating magazine I received from my mother in 1978.  I was always baking for my parents...such things as jelly cookies, homemade doughnuts, and many other desserts.  My Grandmother was mentioned in the New York Times for her cheesecake recipe.

Nothing gives me more pleasure than making a beautiful cake, desserts, cupcakes, decorated cookies or any of our other unique sweets and favors for any occasion you are celebrating! 

I started A Piece of Cake in Tampa, Florida in 2004.  I was a Wilton Method Cake Decorating Instructor at Michaels on Dale Mabry in Tampa. 

I was the Head Pastry Chef at the Island Way Grill on Clearwater Beach after making one cake for the Executive Chef.  I made many desserts, wedding cakes, birthday and anniversary cakes for patrons of the restaurant.

Next, I found myself at the VIP team owners tent for Superbowl in 2009 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.  It was one of the most exciting events that I was part of.  I made some mini desserts and a unique mango milkshake that I remember Lawrence Fishburn enjoyed at the event.

Loving what you do makes it all that more fun!

Laurie Ryan, Chef & Owner

I continued working A Piece of Cake & Desserts in its own location in Tampa.  I secured the position of Wedding Cake Specialist for the Grand Hyatt Rocky Point in Tampa, Florida  I made all of the wedding cakes for the hotel and their guests and well as desserts for their Sunday Brunch at Oyster Catchers and one of my favorite restaurants Armanis.

I have had the honor and pleasure of being a part of so many weddings, events and working with many wonderful clients.  My cakes have been to many locations like a Taj Majal at Saddlebrook in Palm Harbor to serve 500 guests plus an amazing 40 cake Quincenera castle cake at the Grand Floridian on Disney's property in Orlando.

I want to continue to share my love, passion, and skills to create delicious, beautiful cakes, and desserts with over 15 years experience in creating wedding cakes, all occasion cakes, birthday cakes, dessert bars, edible favors and more.

Book an Appointment with us today and allow me to share my love and passion with you.
