    Jacqueline Spofford, the owner of Affectionate Confections and pastry chef extraordinaire, was absolutely wonderful to work with! She far exceeded my expectations! I sent her a few pictures of wedding cake designs that I liked and left it up to her to create something similar. Wow - her beautiful and classic design blew me away. I was overjoyed when I saw how elegant it was! I couldn't decide on a flavor, as her descriptions all sounded so yummy - so I went with a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling for the bottom tier and almond cake with almond filling for the top two tiers. The whole cake was then iced with a butter cream frosting and decorated with a delicate but ornate design. Words cannot express how beautiful and tasty it was. My guests are all still talking about it! And if that weren't enough, I told her that I was hoping to elevate the cake so that the bridal bouquets could be placed below and around the cake. I told her that the cake stand that I had was too unstable. She then constructed and brought with her a riser that she placed under the table cloth, elevating her beautiful cake just enough so as not to be hidden by the bouquets. Marvelous!

    Thank you! It was a pleasure working with you.
