A Bethesda Bakery Guaranteed to Spark Your Fancy

A Bethesda Bakery Guaranteed to Spark Your Fancy

You may have heard of Fancy Cakes by Leslie on the Food Network’s Ace of Cakes or on TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off.  Maybe you’ve read about how Fancy Cakes by Leslie prepared a Birthday Cake for Marc Anthony and J.Lo for Marc’s 41st Birthday in People Magazine or The Washington Post. Regardless of where or what you’ve heard about them, it all means nothing until you try it for yourself.  The proof is in the pudding—oops, I mean batter.

“I’ve been making cakes for 15 years,” says Leslie Poyourow, owner and decorator. “I started as a hobbyist. I always loved to bake, but was uncertain about how to do the decorating piece. I took a couple of classes and then basically the rest is history because I became very passionate about it and I still love it.”
