Elyse Bordes

Owner/Cake Designer

My love for sweets started at a young age. I can remember helping a neighbor mix cake batter for what seemed like hours and waiting another hour or so for the cake to bake and be eaten. I believe that’s when my passion for baking began. Saturday mornings in my parent’s Philadelphia home meant home-cooked Haitian dishes and some sort of cake or pastry inspired by our Haitian roots.  My mom and grandma made everything from scratch, from using a grater to grate lemon zest to mixing ingredients with a wooden spoon, every dish and dessert was made with love.  This is what I bring to the table at Lysa's Cake'tique.  I not only have a passion for baking, but I also love building relationships and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

At Lysa’s Cake’tique, cake is not just cake. I believe that cake should be delicious and elegant at the same time. My mission is providing my clients a personal and professional service with excellence in taste and art...and a little touch from the Pearl of the Antilles (Haiti).  You can be assured that our gourmet cakes are made fresh, with high quality ingredients, and are hand-crafted and custom tailored to fit the vision of my clients.  I pride myself in providing quality products and as a result I limit the amount of orders I take each week to focus on providing my clients with the best experience for life’s sweetest moments.  I would be honored to work with you to create the cake of your dreams while baking everlasting experiences!

Sweetly Yours,

Elyse Bordes
