Before she was old enough to write her own name, Elisa Strauss recalls standing in her grandmother's kitchen baking and decorating cakes and cookies. Now years later, Chef Elisa, the creator of Confetti Cakes®, is still hard at work in her kitchen.

Confetti Cakes is the culmination of a life-long artistic pursuit and the fulfillment of a dream. Elisa's artistic inclinations led her to pursue the study of art at Vassar College and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Soon after graduating from Vassar she expanded her medium from oil paints and textiles to cake design and construction. She worked as a designer for Polo Ralph Lauren. In fact, it was a cake she made for Ralph (in the shape of a Bugatti, his favorite sports car) and the heaps of praise it received from fashion industry notables that inspired her to bring her design talents to the kitchen full-time. Elisa Strauss is a graduate of The Institute of Culinary Education where she received her degree in Pastry and Baking Arts.

Confetti Cakes specializes in hand-sculpted delicious works of art. Customers are passionate about our cakes for both their artistic designs and their delicious taste. Each cake is created completely from scratch using the freshest ingredients. Confetti Cakes offers a variety of fantastic cake flavors from decadent chocolate and old-fashioned vanilla to rich red velvet and moist carrot cake.

Her creations have appeared on the Today show (one of her cakes was selected as the winner of the "Today Throws a Wedding" series), Sex and the City (she made Charlotte and Harry’s wedding cake during Season Six), The View and Martha. Elisa has also been featured on The View, and has appeared several times on the Food Network, including the "Extreme Cake Challenge" where she won the grand prize. Confetti Cakes has also been featured in InStyle, Martha Stewart Weddings, Marie Claire, Seventeen, Elle, Vogue, Modern Bride, New York magazine, BRIDES, Elegant Bride, The Knot and in 2008 was selected as one of America's Top Ten Pastry Chef’s in Pastry Art and Design.

Elisa's first book, The Confetti Cakes Cookbook: Spectacular Cookies, Cakes and Cupcakes from New York City's Famed Bakery, was released in Spring 2007 and is in its fourth printing, and her second book entitled Confetti Cakes for Kids was released in the Fall of 2008.
