(English pronunciation: /biˈspoʊk/) is a term employed in a variety of applications to mean an item custom-made to the buyer's specification (personalized or tailored).
In other words, bespoke describes a high degree of "customization", and involvement of the end-user, in the production/design of the goods.

Cake Expressions is excited to announce the opening of the Cake Expressions Academy!

Consultations and tastings are available free of charge for clients booking a cake for a minimum of 75 guests (or a $250 minimum order), and are by appointment only. During this meeting, that lasts approximately 1 hour, we’ll discuss the details of your event while you look through our extensive portfolio of cake designs. You may find the cake of your dreams in there, or we’ll begin the process of designing your bespoke cake. You’ll also get to sample some of our most popular cake flavors. Be sure to bring in any inspirational items-wedding gown design, flowers, color swatches, photos of cakes you like, invitations-anything that pertains to your event. At Cake Expressions custom cake design options are limitless!
We also hold an open house approximately once a month for anyone to come in and sample cakes and look through our full portfolio. The day and time of these will be announced on our Facebook page-so be sure to “like” us! Of course you can always give us a call or send an email to let us know of your cake needs and we will be happy to discuss your options. Located in Huntersville, North Carolina, we offer delivery to the greater Charlotte area and beyond.
At Cake Expressions by Lisa, your dream cake can become a reality!
