Lauren Wagner, owner of Elevated Cake Co., loves a challenge and feels like the bigger the cake, the bigger the canvas for her to create her art. Her favorite creations? Large, elegant cakes! She’s a self-taught baker who prides herself on the unique custom cakes she creates from her handmade by scratch recipes. When she’s not creating her delicious cakes, she and her husband are busy chasing their growing family of three little ones, ages 4, 18 months and 6 months old. Wagner is taking orders for the 2020 wedding season.
