Maria Sohail Cakes is a boutique cake studio specializing in custom cakes and handcrafted sugar flowers for weddings and special occasions. Maria Sohail Cakes is a licensed and insured business based in Leesburg, VA.


Maria Sohail, owner of Maria Sohail Cakes, found her passion for baking and cake decorating at a young age from her mother. During her career as a food microbiologist, she continued to explore the science and art of cakes, refined her techniques and attended courses with renowned cake artists Maggie Austin, Ron Ben-Israel, and Sharon Wee. Her love for the science and artistry behind it all inspired the launch of Maria Sohail Cakes. Maria’s cakes are always prepared from scratch and known for their attention to detail, intricate sugar flower work and delicious flavor. She believes in using the best quality ingredients for the best results and incorporates locally sourced ingredients when available. In 2022, Maria moved the business from Middletown, NY to Leesburg, VA and is excited to make beautiful cakes in the beautiful area she grew up in.
