Bella’s is owned and operated by Lauren Cortesi, whose dessert creations have received local and national acclaim. We are located in Glenmoore which is in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Lauren started Bella’s in 2002, growing the business by word of mouth. After the launch of Bella’s website in 2005, Bella’s has grown nationally, with orders coming in from across the U.S.
Lauren’s entrance into the culinary arts world began in the early 1990′s where she created desserts at the now defunct Oceanside restaurant in Oregon. Shortly thereafter, Lauren moved to Seattle where she learned the basics of pastry arts at the only 4 star restaurant in the area, The Painted Table. Over the years, Lauren received special instruction at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, and also from world renowned cake designers Colette Peters, Bronwen Webber and Toba Garrett, as well as the sugar paste flower expert Kim Morrison and sugar artist Lori Ann Blethen of Wildflowers. Bella’s offers cutting edge desserts using everything from fondant, gumpaste and chocolate work in their creations. Lauren has brought edible art to the area, and has committed to learning the latest trends to keep up with ever changing demand. Lauren has also generously donated cakes to such charities as Relay For Life, CancerCare Cupcakes for a Cause, as well as local and private school events.
Bella’s is by appointment only, is fully insured, and is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
