Mountain Flour was created in 2001 to fill a need in the Vail Valley for high-quality, fresh and delicious wedding cakes in this wonderfully gorgeous and popular wedding event location. Since opening, we have gained a reputation for providing the most beautiful and delectable wedding cakes throughout the Rocky Mountains.
