Best and most beautiful wedding cake I could have ever imagined. Jill was so easy to work with, professional and delivered exactly what we wanted. Aside from being beautiful, the cake was delicious! We had a hard time choosing only three flavors because every flavor we tried was good!! Great value and great people to work with. Highly recommend!

Branching Out Cakes did an amazing job of creating our wedding cake with 3 different flavors! We were referred by our wedding coordinator and honestly, Branching Out Cakes was everything we could have asked for in this department. My husband and I don't like sweet desserts and we knew this would be issue since many wedding cakes are extremely sweet. The cakes here are the perfect sweetness, enough to know your eating a cake, but not so sweet that I'm worried about people developing diabetes. The cake was also perfectly moist, even after my MIL refrigerated some of the leftover cake. Not only did they create our dream elegant-looking floral cascade cake, which by the way looks amazing in photos, but it also tasted so delicious (even our guests wanted to know who the baker was)! Jill and her team even made our green tea dreams come true with a green tea cake with green tea frosting. Thank you again for everything!!!
