    Most Delicious and Beautiful Wedding Cake

    I highly recommend Cakes by Design! This cake was not only so delicious (my wedding guests made a point to tell me how good it was!) but also beautiful. Working with Tabitha was wonderful - she worked with me to figure out my favorite flavors and with the help of her expertise we came up with a really fun and unique 3-tier wedding cake with different flavors/fillings on each tier! I wanted a very simple design and it turned out just as I imagined. She was very responsive and timely and just a dream to work with. I will definitely be using Cakes by Design again for any future needs!

    Wedding Cake

    Tabitha was super responsive from the beginning and always answered any questions I had. During the cake tasting she provided photos of cakes for ideas and offered helpful suggestions here and there regarding flavors and designs. The cake was so delicious it was the first thing to go during the wedding. I look forward to ordering another cake from her in the future!
