    Working with Tabitha was so easy. She went beyond and exceeded my expectations

    Tabitha was great to work with. I didn’t have any problem with my cake. She was easy to work with. I told her what I wanted my wedding cake to be and she did actually exceeded my expectations. My wedding cake was beyond perfection! Not to mention it was sooooo delicious. I got a lot of compliments from family and friends. I highly recommend Tabitha! She’s the best!

    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.
    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!

    Thanks so much for the awesome review! I’m so glad I could be there to make your cake given the COVID situation. I can’t wait until your big reception. Thanks again! ❤️ Tabitha
