Meringue Bakery Has A Custom Cake For Every Occasion

By S. Mathur

There's a special cake for everyone, whether you're celebrating a 75th birthday or your baby's first year with a mermaid themed confection. And Meringue Bakery in Plano is the place to go for that special cake. The mom and pop store is owned and run by Don Bruno and his wife, who have lived in the area for over 20 years. Bruno is also General Manger of the bakery.

Meringue Bakery specializes in custom cakes and cupcakes for weddings and other occasions. Even though there are several quality custom bake shops in the Dallas area, Meringue Bakery is unique in many ways.

"All of our cakes are made to order with the freshest ingredients," Bruno said. We engage our customers in the design process since all of our cakes are made to order."

The bakery provides highly personalized service, and all special orders of cakes or cupcakes begin with a sit down discussion with the baker. Bruno begins with a blank sheet of paper on which he sketches out a unique custom cake for each customer. The design could be based on a picture from internet sites like Pinterest, or on an idea that Bruno brings to life. For everything from a child's birthday to a 70th wedding anniversary, customers are delighted with the design as well as the taste.

Weddings are special and as the father of two grown up and married daughters, Bruno understands the anxieties and aspirations of the couples and their families. Consultations also involve tasting the various flavors, fillings and frostings.

"We have two married daughters so when meeting with young couples for wedding cake tastings/consultations we have first had knowledge of the stress, confusion and budget young couple are facing," he said.

Special cakes need special handling and Meringue Bakery takes care over delivery and set up. Car service is provided for all pick up orders and staff will carry out the cake to the car to ensure its safe transport. For delivery orders, cakes, toppings and flowers are all assembled at the venue. Special slicing instructions come with each cake, to ensure that all guests receive an adequate helping.

What does he enjoy most about the job?

"Hands down it has to be the facial expressions of children when they see their first custom birthday cake that mom and dad bought," Bruno said. "The expression of surprise and joy is genuine and stays with me for a long time. Receiving a note from a new bride complimenting us on the wedding cake we created."
