We first encountered Diane of Acuna’s Custom Cakes back in the summertime of 2017, as part of Lanier Bridal’s Facebook community, but it actually wasn’t until December that we finally had the chance to meet her and her husband Joel in person! We were filming a holiday charity event for Leneille Moon of Special Event Factory, and Acuna’s Custom Cakes had a wonderful holiday cake on display there. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to chat too much there, but, by coincidence a few weeks later, we got to be booth neighbors at the Gainesville Bridal Expo!
Besides being amazing cake artists, these two are some of the friendliest people we’ve met here in Georgia. Even before we officially met in person, Diane has been a huge supporter of our brand, which we appreciate tremendously. We are so happy we were able to create this brand film for them!
Based in Gainesville, Georgia, Acuna’s Custom Cakes serves the metro Atlanta area and most of North Georgia. From fondant flowers to marbled textures and naked cakes to amazing piping work, Diane’s designs are versatile yet always impeccable! Taking inspiration from her client’s decor elements, invitation suites, etc., Diane is dedicated to helping her couples’ wedding cake vision come to life. Her cake innovation really soars, however, when she is given just a bit of creative freedom! Just check out her Instagram, where it seems she’s constantly outdoing her own creativity!
Besides working closely with their clients during the design phase, Diane and Joel always personally deliver their exquisite cakes, which we believe is a testament to their commitment to their unparalleled service. Oftentimes, once the cake is baked, decorated, and delivered, Diane says she’s gained not just a client, but a new friend!
Since running their business as a duo for almost eight months now, Diane and Joel have run with the opportunities God has blessed them with. We regularly see them post updates on social media discussing how they’re fully booked for certain months; at lunch after filming they admitted some weekends they’re delivering a handful of cakes between the two of them!! Georgia is a big state, and as they are in Gainesville, the driving must get old fast. But it clearly won’t shake them from their passion! They love serving their clients.
Diane and Joel also have dreams of opening a store-front bakery, with not just wedding cakes, but espresso too! Joel is a skilled barista and his milk frothing techniques share the same attention to detail as his work with their cakes. We’re so excited to support their future ventures and can’t wait to step into their sweet-smelling cafe someday!!
