Vendor Spotlight: Tito’s Cakes, Rhode Island & South Shore MA Wedding Cake Designer

March 18th, 2018

Nina Pestana of Tito’s Cakes is one of the most creative bakers, bringing couples’  visions to life or creating something one of a kind with just their wedding theme and colors.  I wanted to share a little more behind the scenes about Nina and Tito’s Cakes to help understand what sets her apart as a wedding cake designer.


Getting Started as a Wedding Cake Designer 

Nina was first bit by the baking bug back in 2008. As a culinary arts student at Southeastern Regional in South Easton, MA, she found herself loving the baking side of things. With this love, she started to practice at home and soon began making cakes for friends’ and family’s parties. 

Nina graduated from Southeastern & went on to attend Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island to receive her Associate’s Degree in Baking & Pastry Arts. Through her classes and an incredible amount of practice, she honed her craft of cake design – especially techniques to create sculpted specialty cakes and wedding cakes! 

Over all this time, TIto’s Cakes has grown from a small home kitchen operation to a thriving bakery business serving dozens of happy clients each month!


Wedding Cake Designer Locations

Tito’s Cakes is based mainly at her bakery in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where she meets with her clients for the cake tastings, etc. Many of her wedding cake deliveries take her from the North Shore Massachusetts all the way down to Newport, Rhode Island! 

If clients need to pick up cakes & treats, they can do so in Pawtucket or Warwick, Rhode Island and Stoughton, Massachusetts.  


Fun Facts about Nina Pestana & Tito’s Cakes

When she isn’t baking cakes, Nina loves diving into her latest craft project. From knitting to sewing to canvas paintings, her creativity shines in all different ways!

Nina’s Portuguese heritage is also super important to her. She’s participated in numerous Carnaval shows throughout her life. She’s the President of her Rancho group, too, which gave her the opportunity to be a judge for Miss Portugal last year! 

I highly recommend Tito’s Cakes for your wedding cake design. You can trust her to create the perfect centerpiece for your wedding with passion & love. You can find her on Instagram and Facebook.
