    To quote a bridesmaid, "BEST. CAKE. EVER."

    Lisa was one of the first vendors we secured for our wedding and was an absolute joy to work with. She was flexible and very sweet about arranging a COVID-conscious drive-through cake tasting for me and DH and was continually reliable with scheduling and communication.

    I can't say enough good things about the cake itself! We went with vanilla cake, passionfruit buttercream filling, and buttercream frosting, and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone in attendance raved about how good it was. The design and appearance was exactly what I was looking for, but even better than I had expected--Lisa created some unbelievably beautiful sugar flowers (ranunculus and white anemone) as the main decorative highlight. I would not hesitate to recommend Cake Expressions!

    Looks amazing and tastes even more amazing!

    I almost didn't get a cake because all my friends told me wedding cakes are in the past....I'm SOOOO happy I didn't listen to them. Lisa did an amazing job taking the ideas in my head and turning it into a beautiful cake. It turned out even more amazing than I imagined. Not only that, but it tasted amazing! We also had her make additional desserts (parfaits, pastries, cookies). Aside from the top layer of the cake that we had set aside, we did not have a single slice of cake or cookie left over. Everyone raved about our desserts. If you hire Lisa, you will not be disappointed!
