Dear Happy Couple,
For the nearly 50 years we at Hillcrest Bakery have created beautiful custom wedding cakes for couples just like you. Whether your style is simplistic, ornate, traditional, or contemporary we have the perfect cake for you.
Peter Kaskes Sr. learned the art of baking and cake artistry from his father growing up as a young boy in Holland. Peter continued this family tradition by teaching his own children baking and cake artistry right here in Bothell, Washington. Barbara, Peter Jr. and Bob carry on the family business and are always excited to create a distinctive wedding cake that matches your style.
We look forward to being a part of your very special wedding day.
The Kaskes Family

We do not take orders more than one year in advance of the wedding. We recommend ordering two to three months prior to your wedding. All of the details about the cake must be confirmed one month prior to the wedding date.
We ask that the cake is paid in full one month prior to the wedding date.
We only ask for a refundable deposit on the pillars and plates that structurally support your wedding cake. Once the pillars and plates are returned after the wedding you will receive that money back. We do not require a deposit to hold a date.
We do deliver wedding cakes for a fee. The fee depends on which city we deliver to. There is an extra charge on Sundays because the shop is closed.
We are happy to assemble fresh flowers on the cake if we deliver. We ask that you order the flowers from your florist. This way you can get the types and colors of flowers that you want.
We ask that you provide any ribbon that you would like on your cake. This way you can get the color and thickness that works with your design.
We offer traditional cake topper styles for purchase. There are many cake toppers that you can find online from initials to your favorite character figurines.
Our white buttercream recipe contains real butter and has a slightly creamy tint to it. This frosting tastes wonderful and holds up in even the hottest Northwest weather. Our recipe has been passed down through many generations.
A traditional European topping that is made with rich almond paste. Our European Marzipan has a beige tint to it and a very smooth look. The cake decorator rolls the marzipan out like a dough and lays it over a cake. If you like almond then you would love marzipan. This is a very old Dutch recipe from our bakery in Holland.
We use Satin Ice Fondant which is a high quality rolled fondant. This fondant is pure white and has a very smooth look. It tastes a little like melted marshmallows or sugar cookie dough. Chocolate Fondant is also available. The cake decorator rolls the fondant out like a dough and places it over the cake. You may recognize this product because it is often used on cake decorating TV shows.
