Who Is Cakes by Gyo? The Short Story...

The Beginning...

It all started in the COVID pandemic. Couped up at home, my mom and I started to make some cakes and sell them to our neighbors in the GVR Neighborhood of Denver. 


Based on the great feedback (and encouragement!) we were getting, we realized that there weren't a lot of options for custom cakes in our area.

That gave us the push we needed to officially launch our cake shop, Cakes by Gyo, in August of 2020.


Where are we now?

It's been a great ride so far with 400+ satisfied clients to date. We keep learning, growing and baking each and every day to make sure we provide the best possible service in Denver.

What's Next For Us?

We are currently in the process of looking for a more permanent place for the bakery where we can continue to grow and do what we love: bake custom cakes for the Denver community. We are looking at several options, but one thing is for sure: we will continue to provide excellent service, delicious cakes, breath-taking designs and do it all with a happy attitude!


In the meantime, contact us on any of our forms here or on our Facebook or Instagram page. We'd love to quote you a beautiful cake you can enjoy with your loved ones on your special day!

What is a "custom cake"


We bake cakes for weddings, birthdays, quincenearas, and many other awesome events. Our cakes are truly one of a kind - no two are alike. We have hundreds of options for flavor, color, style, decoration, and overall feel of the cake which makes it highly unlikely anyone will have your exact cake.

It's easy... with your help! Our custom cake designers will work with you to create the perfect cake! Send us a picture for inspiration and a few requirements and we will help give you design ideas at no additional cost.

We specialize in cake design for birthday cakes, wedding cakes, cupcakes, or anything else you need from your best locally owned bakery in Denver. We strive to be the best bakery for custom cakes Denver has ever seen.

Our specialty cakes are top-notch and our decorations speak for themselves. If you want the best for your special day then give us a try. Our cakes are made of buttercream or fondant with delicious flavors.

With one of our made from scratch custom orders cakes, you will be able to pick the decoration, awesome flavor, and buttercream frosting or fondant on the outside.

Need a cupcake? We have those too! Everything is made fresh for all of the events we are a part of.

What's "the process" like?

We want the process to be easy as possible for our customers. We have a lot of good information and pictures on our website, but you can always reach us via email, chat, or Facebook messages on our Facebook page @cakesbygyo.

Step #1: Reach out and let us know what you are looking for

Critical information is your timeline, how many people, general design ideas, type of cake (buttercream or fondant) and what flavors you want. Once we get that information we can give you a quote of how much the cake will be.

Each cake is different and unique, so giving out standard pricing is hard prior to having all of the information.


Step #2: We agree on price and timeline and we get to work!


It's pretty much that simple. We will send over an invoice for a portion of the cake up front since we are going to start making it and investing time and resources in the project. If you are interested in doing a tasting, we can certainly set that up as well free of charge.


In fact, for larger purchases like wedding cakes or large parties and events, we recommend a tasting to make sure it's a good fit for everyone. Come over, indulge in some delicious cake or cupcakes, and meet the family! Heck, we'll even throw in some beverages if it's helpful.


Preparing for the tasting we will give you a choice of several flavors to choose from and serve those for you to eat.


Step #3: We will provide you with your perfect cake on time, every time


At Cakes by Gyo, we pride ourselves in exceeding our customers expectations. Your cake will be right, every time. It's not just food to us, it's a work of art and we want you to love it. It should be an inspiration and delight you and your guests.


On the agreed upon day, you can do curbside pick up for your cake or we will deliver it for a fee. Parties that have specific requirements can be accommodated but we need to know in advance. For example, if the cake has to be the restaurant at exactly 6pm, we can make that happen.


Step #4: Enjoy your day!


We are happy when you are happy. Nothing makes us more happy than getting a follow up email or text with a picture of the event and some kind words. That's what we live for! That puts the icing on the cake for this little bakery. It's not just the custom cake, it's the joy it brings to the people who are able to celebrate around it.
