we don’t think you should only celebrate life’s big events. Let’s also celebrate the small milestones that make us who we are and all those special days (and people) in between.
Since a very young age, Lona has had a love for baking which was inspired by her German Oma (grandmother). When Lona baked her oldest son’s first birthday cake, she discovered that cake couldn’t just be something delicious to eat, but also something beautiful to look at. As her son’s age and requests increased, so did her interest and knowledge for the art of cake. What started as a hobby in her home kitchen, quickly turned into a career and passion. In 2009, Lona officially founded LonaCakes. She has been baking for clients ever since. Whether it’s a wedding, birthday or just because you want to make someone happy (including yourself!), Lona loves to play a part in your special occasion.
Lona has joined forces with her greatest “partner in crime”, her sister Anna. With knowledge gained by her MBA and entrepreneur background, Anna is taking LonaCakes storefront in 2016. She plans to make LonaCakes known in all of Ithaca and surrounding areas, bringing you leading-edge quality and design cake products without losing that personable and caring experience.
Lona and Anna share the same unique, multicultural background. Born in Germany, they were raised by a South American mother and German father. After having spent almost twenty years separated by oceans, Lona and Anna are finally bringing their lives, and biggest dreams, together. They give LonaCakes their all, and they do it with passion, dedication, great care and enthusiasm – something you are sure to sense in any LonaCakes experience.
