Bella’s Desserts is owned and operated by award-winning cake designer, Lauren Cortesi.
Her dessert creations have received local and national acclaim. We’ve been operating since 2002, growing our business by word of mouth.
We’re located in Glennmore, which is in Chester County, Pennsylvania. That’s only 45 minutes west of Philadelphia. But we receive orders from across the U.S.
Great Reviews from Customers
We’re lucky. We have excellent customers who order from us all the time, all over the U.S. Here’s one quote from a bride who ordered from California who hadn’t met us 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 1990s, where she created desserts at the now defunct Oceanside restaurant in Oregon.
Shortly thereafter, she moved to Seattle, where she learned the basics of pastry arts at the only 4-star restaurant in the area, The Painted Table.
Lauren has brought edible art to the Philly area. She’s keeps up with the latest trends to ensure your wedding cake, cookie order, baby shower cake, and more is perfect.
Worked With the Best
Receiving special training at the Le Cordon Bleu Paris, she’s been instructed by world-renowned cake designers — Colette Peters, Bronwen Webber, Jay Qualls, Liz Marek, Karen Portaleo and Toba Garrett. Her training also includes sugar flowers with expert Kim Morrison and Lori Ann Blethen.
That’s why Bella’s Desserts offers cutting-edge desserts using everything available — sugar flowers, fondant, gumpaste, and chocolate in gluten free and even dairy free — in her creations.
Bella Desserts specializes in custom desserts for your wedding, baby shower, birthday, or other special occasion.
Bella’s Desserts Gives Back
