Beautiful AND tasteful wedding cake!
We originally were planning a large wedding and Daneen & Tai worked with us from the beginning by baking & designing personalized cookies for "Will You Be My Bridesmaid" theme. We love them! They even packaged the cookies individually so I can send a package to each bridesmaid in the mail. Due to Coronavirus we changed our large wedding plans to a micro-wedding and they were so flexible with us going back and forth postponing our wedding twice to finally deciding to get married within a month. During The Pandemic, Daneen & Tai made it possible to do cake tasting by providing several options and personally delivering it straight to our home then we joined on Zoom to have the cake tasting experience with them. They took my Pinterest vision of a micro-cake and made such a beautiful strawberry cake. It tasted so good too!Sent on 09/27/2020

Amazing`Experience With This Mother-Daughter Duo For My Summer 2018 Wedding!
I had the pleasure of working with Tai and Daneen for my Summer 2018 wedding. From beginning to end, my experience was wonderful. Tai and Daneen were patient with my "bride brain" and a couple last minute changes and provided great customer service. In the end they captured my "southern rustic chic" theme perfectly with my beautiful dessert table that included a 3 tier yellow cake with Italian buttercream, mini chocolate cupcakes, key lime pie shooters, and custom monogrammed cookies that served as my wedding favors. These ladies are truly talented and their desserts are not only beautiful but taste delicious! My guests couldn't stop gushing over how delicious and fresh everything was. Thanks so much to 5-12 Desserts for bringing my vision to life and making my big day even more special!Sent on 01/22/2019
