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!

Came through for us
We had hired Tabitha to make the wedding cakes for our daughter's wedding scheduled for April, but due to the health situation, we had to move up the date four weeks.Sent on 03/25/2020
She agreed to make a small cake for our intimate home wedding with less than 24 hours notice and it was beautiful and delicious! The guests all commented on how tasty it was.
I highly recommend Tabitha. We can't wait until the reception at a future date and look forward to delicious and beautiful cakes to enjoy at that celebration. Thank you, Tabitha!
