Fairfield Best Wedding Cakes
Alina Patisserie voted Best Wedding Cakes for 2020 by Fairfield Magazine readers.
Alina’s is a full-service bakery specializing in custom cakes, gourmet cupcakes, pastries, cookies, and desserts. The menu is comprised of an irresistible blend of comfort-oriented classics, traditional European specialties, and elegant baked goods.
All items are handcrafted from scratch with the finest natural ingredients. Alina grew up in Europe, where good and fresh food was a central part of her life. “Desserts and cakes were being made in my house every week,” she says. “I use only cage-free or organic eggs, butter, sugar, and flour, fare-trade chocolates and Swiss jams. I refuse to use any ingredients that I would not use when cooking or baking for my own family at home.” This additional effort and cost results in not only superior tasting products but also in healthier products for her many customers. They do not use any preservatives, and they use only non-GMO flour and sugar.
She adds: “I have been in the restaurant business for almost 25 years. I finished culinary and pastry degrees and worked in French restaurants. Owning my own business for the last six and a half years has been my life.” While running the bakery, she also manages her family: husband and two sons, her puppy, 40 chickens, and garden. “My mom has been with me from the beginning and we try to make everything like for our own family,” she says. Some of Alina’s favorite sayings: “We are what we do” and “We are what we eat.”
Alina’s biggest work achievement has been to reach this point in her life where she can be part of people’s memories—through food. “Either making gender reveal cakes or cupcakes, baby or wedding showers, first birthdays or 100th birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. Nothing gives me more joy then seeing people and kids happy faces when they get their cake or cupcakes that they ordered.” She adds: “We love being part of our community, and we hope to be here for years to come.”
