Learn a little about the baker behind the cakes!

Updated: May 9, 2021

My name is Morgan Wilson and I am a self-taught, home-baker, and owner of Morgy Cakes. I never in a million years thought that I would be where I am today, considering the fact that I went to college for biochemistry and had previously been working in environmental engineering for a little over five years. Baking started off as a hobby and quickly turned into a passion over the course of the last three years. I would find myself day-dreaming about different cake designs I wanted to try once I got home from work! I decided at the beginning of 2021 to take the jump, leave my full time job, and commit to making Morgy Cakes a reality.

I started off baking cheesecakes, which is funny because I really don't even like them that much. I enjoyed the challenge and started experimenting with different flavors, but I knew I wanted to do more. I was very intimidated by the idea of getting into cake-decorating but was intrigued by Chelsweets’ videos on Facebook. One night I decided to give one of her cake designs a try, and I was so incredibly proud of how it turned out. I brought the cake into work the next day and knew from then on that there would be many more cakes in my future. Chelsweets (Chelsey White) was definitely my biggest inspiration, especially at the beginning. Once I started getting more comfortable with cake decorating, I started to focus in on buttercream flowers. It did not take me long to realize that floral work was my calling. My biggest inspiration for buttercream flowers was definitely Leslie Vigil. Her ability to make her cakes and cupcakes look so realistic really fueled my desire to perfect my flowers. I will never get sick of attempting new floral techniques!

I believe my work stands out from the pack because of my attention to detail. From the color selections, to the piping tips chosen to create each flower, to the minuscule details that add just the right amount of depth, I customize every creation I make. I sit and put together each design in a true custom fashion where no two cakes come out the same. I’m constantly evolving and finding new ways to tweak my techniques. I feel that my meticulous nature is what sets me apart!
