Cake artistry is an intimate process. My custom cake designs
reflect who I am, not only as an artist, but as someone who knows how to tell your unique story through cake.
Scientist Turned Pastry Chef
Dr. Lincoln ‘L’ Alexander developed an appetite for cake artistry from a young age. His mother was an avid baker and operated a small cake baking and decorating business out of their family home. As a child, L. Alexander would sit on the kitchen floor and admire his mother’s baking as she would mix up delicious tasting confections all from memory. Often, she would invite him to tinker in many of her cake decorating projects. Unbeknown to him, this childhood admiration would influence his creativity in the culinary arts as a young adult.
At age fifteen, L. was designing and decorating cakes for local community members, including government officials. By the time he graduated college, he had delivered over fifty custom cakes in five states and three countries.
Over the next two decades, L. would graduate with four more degrees including two masters degrees and a doctorate in public health. He established a career as a public health scientist and professor and began to raise a family. Meanwhile his passion for cake artistry never diminished. Throughout the years, he continued to design and outfit custom cakes for weddings and major corporate events.
L. Alexander's award-winning couture cakes have been featured in publications worldwide such as ESSENCE, The Knot Magazine, MunaLuchi Bride, Black Bride Magazine, Whimsical Wonderful Weddings, The BCollective, HelloBeautiful, Grand Rapids Magazine, Hour Detroit Magazine and more! Some of his celebrity and social media influencer clientele include Grammy and Stellar award-winning recording artist, Kierra Sheard-Kelly, Farrah Merhi of "Inspire Me! Home Decor", Yumna Jawad of "Feel Good Foodie", Lance Devereux, Courtney Ajinca, and Tori Williams, c0-stars on VH1's hit reality show, "My Celebrity Dream Wedding," Mike Hilton, Cornerback for the Cincinnati Bengals, and Kyla Ford, fitness influencer, entrepreneur, and daughter of Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario, Canada.
