Feature Friday: Kaysie Lackey

Just when you think tree stump wedding cakes are on their way out of style, this cake comes along and makes it so fresh and new.

This cake was made by the extremely talented Kaysie Lackey, owner of The People’s Cake in Seattle, Washington. Kaysie has made several versions of this same cake. It must be a popular one at her shop and I can see why.


This modern version has more of a grey toned ‘bark’ with an almost yellow center; a very current color scheme.

And I can’t get over the succulents that she has made and put in some of these.

Aren’t these cakes so amazing? And guess what? When I asked Kaysie if I could feature her cake, she informed me that she is in the process of making a how-to video for this cake! Isn’t that great? I sure think it is.

So out of these versions of Kaysie’s cake, which one do you like the best? It was hard to choose but I do have my favorite.

    I hope your video it out really soon. My grandson if getting married in May and loves your Tilted birch tree. I would love to take classes with you but I live in Bethlehem, NH. Would you please let me know if the video you are making is ready? I have made all of our family wedding cakes but none like this one. Thank you in advance. Beautiful!!!!

      I love the cake that tilts in one direction and then another. Am trying to find the video for that one with no luck. Would like to know how she has just a single edge of the cake touching and still holds up. Is it Styrofoam wedges or a support made out of pvc piping.

    I would love to have her make this cake for my wedding!

  14. Evelyn says:

    I purchased the video. It does not cover the tilted version but it is good enough to get you thru it. You can purchase it from cakemasters.com. It is excellent
