Tabitha is amazing!
Our consultation with Tabitha was scheduled at 6:30PM but we were running behind schedule. We knew it was going to be a hit or miss if we told her our situation (being stuck in traffic) from Dallas. However, despite the circumstances, she was very patient & still waited for us to get there.Sent on 04/06/2019
Her reviews / questions on our wedding cakes were straight forward & she answered all the questions we would’ve had, before we even thought of them! lol
We just paid our deposit & her pricing is one you can’t beat! We’re so excited!
Cakes by Design's reply:Thanks so much! It was nice meeting you and your fiancé and I can’t wait to make your beautiful cakes! :)

Amazing value, beautiful and tasty cake!
Oh my goodness, SO glad we found Tabitha/Cakes by Design. She provides DELICIOUS cake/flavors with a beautiful design at such an affordable cost!!! We got to have a 3 tier cake with additional sheet cake (of the same flavors as the 3-tier cake) at seriously a fraction of the cost other big cake companies in Dallas would have charged us (was quoted over $1000 for a 3-tier cake with NO sheet cake from another cake company in Dallas).Sent on 01/10/2020
Communication was super easy with Tabitha - she was always responsive and helpful. Day of, I didn't get to see her as I was getting ready upstairs but when I saw the cake later, I loved it!! And when I tasted it, I loved it even more :) So happy we found Cakes by Design for our wedding day!!
Cakes by Design's reply:Thanks so much for all the kind words! Im so glad that I got to make your wedding cake and be a part of your special day! Thanks again and congratulations!
