Charlene Lindquist, Owner

Charlene began her cake decorating career working for another local bakery over 30 years ago. After leaving over creative differences , Charlene decided to continue her passion by putting a commercial kitchen in her home... Thus began The Cake Lady. Once she established enough steady clientele, Charlene was able to open a store front on Williams Street. Word of mouth began to spread and the business eventually became too large for the small location. Charlene opened the current location on Frontage Road in 2003, where business has been continuously growing. In the Spring of 2013 The Cake Lady opened a second satellite location in Niantic, CT; suitably dubbed The Cake Lady Express.


The Cake Lady Café is a bake-to-order, custom cake shop.  We pride ourselves on our family-friendly atmosphere, affordable pricing and our fresh, quality ingredients. Our buttercream is Charlene's trademark recipe, made from scratch daily. Customers can walk in and select from a wide variety of freshly made cupcakes.  We also have a limited amount of ready-to-go cakes that sell out fast. But the heart of our business can be found in our custom, personalized cake orders. We have a talented staff eager to help you design the cake of your dreams for any occasion.
