Hey there! I am Lautonia Robinson: A stay-at-home mother of gorgeous twin girls and a dedicated military wife of more than 25 years. I have always believed in living by the standard that “your home is your sanctuary, and should feel and look like a page out of a beautiful magazine.” While taking care of my family, I discovered my passion for interior design and love for gardening, and, of course, baking. My adventure with baking began while making a delicious raspberry-laced vanilla cake for my family. I simply could not get the icing to become perfectly smooth, so as the perfectionist I am, I attended a local cake decorating class to help me make my icing absolutely delectable and perfectly smooth. Instructors began to notice and praise my passion for precision and elegance; therefore, I was asked by my instructors to join a cake decorating team of professionals. This is where it all began.
The name, Sunday Rose Cakes, was thought of on a beautiful, summer Sunday morning. As I was sipping on my morning coffee, I admired my hard work and attention to the details of my flower bed filled with beautiful, perfumed roses. Thus, I knew that Sunday morning that each one of my cakes would be treated like the flowers in my garden. Each one being its own masterpiece, which I call “The Sweet Elegance of Cake Artistry.” There is nothing more beautiful than an elegant cake with delicate sugar flowers to adorn them.
My favorite part of being a baker and artist is delivering personalized, beautiful wedding cakes to couples in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV). Seeing the couple’s style and hearing the couple’s story allows me to create the perfect wedding cake that is unique to the occasion. It is of the upmost importance to me that my clients have a part of themselves and what they love showcased in their cake design. I absolutely love the details of making edible lace and sugar flowers that make each cake a personalized art piece. I want my brides to have not only a beautiful cake but a delicious cake with the highest quality ingredients. When I am not baking, I am on Pinterest and researching the upcoming cake design trends to share with my brides-to-be.
I look forward to having the privilege to design and deliver unique, beautiful cakes to the wonderful people of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Let’s talk cake soon!
Lautonia with Sunday Rose Cakes provided us with an absolutely beautiful and delicious 5-tier, navy blue with 23K gold accent cake for our wedding on June 30th. It was certainly a jaw dropper and added a perfect touch to the decor within our reception room. After attending the cake tasting with Lautonia we knew we had found the one. She was professional, down to earth and made sure that the cake we tested was not only delicious but looked and was served beautifully. Fast forward to the wedding day our guests were so impressed with the cake and continue to rave about how moist and good it was. We made an excellent decision choosing Sunday Rose Cakes as our wedding cake provider!
Sunday Rose cakes are moist and full of flavor. I tried the gluten-free cake and it was delicious. Not only is she an excellent cake designer she is also a great person who pays attention to detail and is honest about the time and dedication she spends on her cakes and she strives to ensure that her customers are happy with the end result.

Sunday Rose Cakes was such a pleasure to work with! Accommodating, caring, and super creative. My style leans much more to the modern side than most of the fluffy, over-the-top cakes offerings that are out there so to discover her was a godsend. Her sensibility and style were perfectly “simple” and chic. She has a true love and talent for baking, and the two cakes we ordered were both stunning and delicious. Honestly, I wish she could bake all our cakes for future special occasions. We only wish we had more cake leftover to enjoy!

You can tell she puts a lot of love into her cakes and that she has a true passion for what she does. She loves to see her customers satisfied and that is exactly how I felt every time I received a cake from her. If you need a cake/treats for any special event please go see her and I promise you will not be disappointed.
