About Elisa’s Cake by the #Pound

Elisa’s Cake by the #Pound

Owner, Custom Cake Artist

I am a self-taught home baker and proud mother of one. My journey began as a paralegal, but everything changed when I baked and decorated my first cake in 2014 for Ella's 4th birthday. I wanted to create a memorable experience for her party, and little did I know it would ignite a deep passion within me. Soon I found myself baking for friends & family. Before I knew it, I had developed a substantial customer base. Over the years, I have come to realize that baking is a pure and simple expression of love and joy for others. In January 2020, I made the bold decision to follow my passion and pursue my dreams in the world of baking.

In February 2022, I relocated my bakery to the vibrant city of Chicago, Illinois. I have been personally responsible for the design and construction of my legendary custom cakes. Each cake is meticulously hand-designed and tailored to suit the unique occasion it celebrates. I take great pride in creating not just delicious treats but also unforgettable experiences. Baking has become more than just a hobby or a profession for me; it is a way for me to spread love, joy, and happiness through my art. I look forward to continuing this journey and sharing my creations with the world.
