Ashley is Simply the Best!

Ashley from Ashley鈥檚 Sweet Beginnings is the vendor I was the most immediately sure of hiring from our first meeting, and we could not be more pleased with how amazing our wedding cake turned out and just how smooth the entire process went. I didn鈥檛 once worry about the cake, and I didn鈥檛 have to鈥擜shley knocked it out of the park!

Ashley was amazing to work with from the first email I sent to schedule a tasting. She was friendly, communicative, and so knowledgeable: I gave her some flavors we liked and she created some excellent combinations for us to try. When I wasn鈥檛 sure about our filling after deciding on the icing and cake, Ashley made a combination of cupcakes for me to buy to try out different flavors, and we settled on a lemon cake with sugar cookie frosting with lemon buttercream in two layers and raspberry mousse in the other two. (To be honest, any combo she suggested probably would have tasted great!) Flavor was the most important to me, and Ashley didn鈥檛 disappoint: the cake was delicious and moist and not too heavy, absolutely delectable.

Ashley is extremely knowledgeable about her work and was responsive every step of the way; I was unsure of how much cake we鈥檇 need for our guest count, and Ashley gave sound advice to help us decide how many layers to buy. When discussing the design, I was nervous because I only had a vague idea of what I wanted, but after pointing out a couple pictures I liked and describing the look I was going for, Ashley sketched out the perfect cake design with ease (first try!), and the result the day of was absolutely stunning.

Overall, Ashley was amazing to work with. She knows her stuff; is super personable and professional; has an excellent eye for design; and bakes exceptionally tasty cakes. Ashley is an amazing choice as your wedding baker!

The best cakes you鈥檒l find!

Ashley鈥榮 sweet beginnings are top notch when it comes to flavor, presentation, artistic ability, and professionalism. We came to Ashley with some ideas and she brought everything to life and then more. We couldn鈥檛 decide on what flavors to choose so we ended up ordering three cakes and six dozen cupcakes. Everyone had a taste of everything and even took home leftovers. A week later our guests are still talking about our wide array of desserts and how delicious they were.

My husband and I are more than thankful to Ashley and her wonderful company for giving us an array of desserts that we鈥檙e not only delicious but gorgeous to look at. His grooms cake was better than I could have imagined. She even included cake pops to go with the design I chose for my husband.

This was basically the easiest part of wedding planning. They took care of everything delivered everything promptly and were so kind and communicated as much as I needed because of course I bugged Ashley with my questions and anticipation of the big day. She was sweet and helpful every time and always made me feel important.

You must choose Ashley鈥榮 sweet beginnings when it comes to the desserts for your wedding. It鈥檚 impossible to go wrong with them and you鈥檒l end up with a gorgeous cake or dessert.
