The Perfect Cake

I am thrilled with the cake we got from Annie at Ambrosia Cakes! Cake tasting was extremely easy, and when I expressed my disappointment that one of our ideal cake flavors wasn鈥檛 included in the tasting box, Annie gave me some cupcakes of the flavor at no extra cost!

Our cake had two flavors: One tier Mexican Hot Chocolate, and one tier Almond Vanilla. Both flavors were incredible, and our guests loved them! We had a special request to have our top tier include both flavors, and Annie was able to accommodate that!

We asked for a particularly detailed cake: blue and purple marbling with gold cracks. We weren鈥檛 sure what we were expecting, but the cake was ABSOLUTELY perfect!

Excellence and Artistry

I cannot thank Ms. Annie "Masterpiece" Matlick (as I will call her from now on), owner of Ambrosia Cakes Tucson for creating our wedding cake, and being patient with me throughout the entire process. I found Ambrosia through wedding wire, and I could tell right away that Ms. Matlick was intensely dedicated to her craft without compromising flavor. Annie was very understanding of the fact that I wanted a lemon cake with the perfect balance of sweet and tangy, and worked insanely hard zesting lemons, and soaking the cake to have the flavor come out perfectly. The butter cream is absolute perfection- you may be tempted to just put a cake topper on a bucket full of the cream and call it a day. As if that weren't enough, Ms. Matlick hand painted the tile design on the hexagon base of the cake (5+ hour process), and brought a lovely stencil option for me to look at, which was used to create the "hammered copper" look for one of our tiers.

Our wedding cake made jaws drop from both our guests and other vendors.

I am speaking to any couple, including couples planning from out of state (in our case), Ms. Matlick is the best investment you can make for your wedding cake and other sweet treats.

Other notes:

-Be open to feedback from Ms. Matlick because she knows what tastes and looks best. I had originally not considered a fondant base until I was told that the summer heat might prove too challenging to support our cake and it's design had it been buttercream alone.

-You may change your cake flavor(s): I went from my original plan of a lemon cake with fresh raspberries and pistachio buttercream to a lemon cake with Ms. Matlick's homemade raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream based on the variety pack Ms. Matlick provided. I almost had the rum cake because the tasting cupcake was THAT GOOD.

The best wedding cake ever!

Annie is such a kind person with the funniest sense of humor! She was very responsive and made sure to walk you through everything you needed to know for ordering your cake. We chose a lemon cake with the blueberry compote filling and oh my goodness it was so good. The cake was super moist and full of flavor. I also let her know that we had many people with nut allergies attending the wedding and she reassured us that she was very careful with cross contamination. We requested that she decorate the cake with flowers from our florist and it turned out gorgeous! We had multiple compliments from our guest on how it was the best wedding cake they ever had and how beautifully decorated it was. Can鈥檛 wait to use Ambrosia Cakes in the future!
