In Their Own Words:

Fancy Pants Cakes is a custom cake business located in Bennington, Vermont. I specialize in creating delicious cakes and cupcakes, from simple cutting cakes with mini cupcake towers to towering 5-tier (or more!) cake masterpieces.

My passion lies in collaborating with clients to transform their dessert dreams into reality. Want to incorporate your pets or your hobbies or an inside joke? Is your cake Pinterest board full of so many different ideas and you have no idea what you want? My magic lies in weaving together your inspirations into a personalized design. I can work with both fondant and buttercream, depending on your preference and ideas. There are no “rules” when it comes to how your cake should look, and I love to play with textures and color and florals.

As for flavors, I believe that taste is just as important as appearance. I use Swiss meringue buttercream, which isn’t too sweet and incorporates flavors very well. Time and time again, my clients report that their guests actually eat the cake, often leaving none to spare for the couple to take home!

Cake tastings can be done in person or mailed to out-of-town couples. If we’re unable to meet in person, we can conduct the consult via video chat. I like to make everything easy for my clients so their ordering experience is a “piece of cake!”

Favorite Moment During a Wedding: The moment after the couple says “I do,” and everyone goes wild! Plus the cake cutting, of course.

Favorite Vermont Activity: I love camping at various state parks in the summer with my son. It’s an annual tradition!

Dance Floor Request: I’m a fan of anything with a Latin beat.


On average, couples typically spend between $800 and $1100 total for a tiered cake, or a smaller tiered cake with extra cake in the back. Cake pricing depends on number of tiers, total number of servings, delivery and amount of setup required, number of flavors, and design. I’m happy to help create the custom cake of your dreams. Contact me for pricing details specific to your celebration!

We had a great experience working with Jenica. Jenica was reliable, easy to work with, and created a beautiful cake exactly what we were looking for. The cake was delicious and we can’t wait to eat the extra mini cake we ordered for our anniversary. Would highly recommend Jenica for those in the Vermont area.


The best experience!

Jenica made our wedding cake last year in September and all we have to say is WOW! She took my vision and made it into an even better reality! The flavors were out of this world and the planning and tasting process was so easy. I can’t say enough about how great our experience was with Fancy Pants Cakes! Thank you Jenica!
