Modern, playful, and always delicious, The Illuminated Oven is Providence's most enchanting bakery. Our cakes, baked from traditional French recipes with an American twist, are each designed as unique works of art for your next special occasion. Founder and owner, Maria Martinez, is a third generation baker in the French style. At the heart of Illuminated Oven is the 1940's commercial oven she inherited from her grandfather. In perfect condition, it still produces the moist cakes, chewy cookies, and crisp meringues that are the signature of the bakery.
At Illuminated Oven, we use only whole-food ingredients and natural fats such as butter and coconut cream. Shortening and other hydrogenated fats are never allowed. In addition to our customary desserts, we offer a full menu of gluten-free and/or lactose free cakes and confections. Our GF/LF recipes are traditional recipes that celebrate the merits of foods like almond flour and coconut cream on their own. We do not simply substitute one ingredient for another. These recipes are seamlessly incorporated into all our dessert and cake offerings. One popular option for wedding cakes, is to include one or more GF/LF tiers for guests or as the cutting cake itself!
