Meet the Pastry chef!

Laura Magardechian created Chubby Cheek Cakes over 10 years ago.

What started as a hobby and a creative outlet turned into her passion. The real turning point came a few weeks before her 21st birthday. She wanted a specific cake, so she went searching at all her local bakeries. Most bakeries turned her away, saying they were unable to recreate her design, and others said they would attempt it but it would come with a very costly price. Determined to have her cake and eat it too, Laura decided she would take on this project. She had successfully recreated the cake for her birthday. All the guests were stunned to find out that she had actually made her own cake! Laura began using every excuse to make more cakes; every birthday, holiday and celebration she could think of. After months of making cakes for fun, the word slowly spread and Laura began taking on clients and started a small business, Chubby Cheek Cakes!

Today, Chubby Cheek Cakes has taken on hundreds of cake orders for events such as Birthdays, Weddings, Baby showers, and much more. They combine great tasting cakes with beautiful artwork to make unique edible masterpieces.

Laura and Chubby Cheek Cakes would love to be apart of your next celebration!

Laura received a Bachelors in Fine Arts From Otis College of Art and Design, graduating with a degree in Advertising and Communication arts. After graduating from Otis, Laura studied at Le Cordon Bleu, where she received her degree as a classically trained Professional Pastry Chef.

  • Laura is the real deal! I wanted a theme cake for my best friends gender reveal. I didn't search too long for chubby cheek cakes was one of the first to pop up. Her pictures looked unreal! I decided to just message her here on yelp. She is quick to respond. I told her my ideas and she asked a few details. I left everything up to her! The day before the big reveal I asked her if I could add to the order. She is very honest and won't add on tasks she can't do...I thought this was great because I knew she wanted to produce top of the line cakes and everything she does she takes her time on. Luckily she had time for a small order. The cake studio is close to my home, but she offered to deliver the cake! Who does that?! I was very impressed by the cake she made for me. I almost didn't want to cut into it. The cake itself was delicious! Needless to say the cake was a great hit at the party. I will be getting all of my cakes done by Laura! Thanks so much! You are amazing!
