The Process

First let us know what you are looking for, for how many people, and when. Next, we discuss any themes or ideas for design. Then you pick the flavors. You can at this time arrange for a tasting. Finally, we finalize the design and get started. On your special day, prepare to be wowed with the finished product!

The Creator

Ruth Hi, my name is Ruth Shin and I want to welcome you to The Savoy Truffle & Cake! I am completely self-taught in all aspects of baking, cooking, and sugar crafts. Cooking has long been a passion of mine, but way before I even made my first homemade batch of ravioli from scratch or grilled Tandoori chicken; I was in the kitchen baking. It was baking that first opened up a sensuous world of sight, smell, taste, and texture. I have come full circle back to my baking roots, but with a twist. Now I can combine my love of craft and handiwork with not just baking, but also my passion for research, careful detail work, and unique aesthetics. I started The Savoy Truffle to share that gift with everyone else and to make your moments truly memorable. My hope is that as in the words to the famed song, "you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle." -The Beatles
