Bella’s Desserts 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,
which is 45 minutes west of Philadelphia.
Lauren started Bella’s Desserts in 2002, growing the business by word of mouth.
After the launch of Bella’s Desserts website in 2005, we have grown nationally,
with orders coming in from across the U.S. This review is from a bride who
ordered from California, and we didn’t meet until the day of her wedding!
“Just wanted to thank you so much again, the cakes were fantastic! We had so
many complements, and even though there were tons of leftovers, people really
enjoyed having 7 custom flavors to choose from. Not to mention the gluten free
folks were thrilled to have such a tasty dessert! “
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 Desserts 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.
Lauren is also a proud contributor to Icing Smiles, a nonprofit organization that
provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical
illness of a child.
Bella’s Desserts is by appointment only, is fully insured, and is licensed by the
Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
