    Cake was just as beautiful as it was delicious!

    Melissa did such a great job with our wedding cake! We knew we wanted to work with her from the time we met her at our tasting. She had so many great ideas and everything was so good. On the day of our wedding, we had left some fresh roses for her to add to the cake when she dropped it off. As a nervous bride, I told her to do whatever she wanted, and the cascade she came up with was much better than anything I could have suggested. It looked so perfect! And, just as important, our guests couldn't stop commenting on how delicious it was! A great experience all around!

    Unique flavors!! Talented baker!!

    Melissa from Cakes by Gray is such a talented baker and has some of the most interesting flavors for wedding cakes! Our tasting with her was so fun and delicious! When it came time to selecting our cake flavors, we opted to do a strawberry cake with a basil filling for one tier and an almond cake with pear purée and cinnamon filling for the other tier. I loved that we were able to incorporate so many amazing flavors into our cake! We also decided to do a little dessert bar of mini pecan pies, chocolate peanut butter shooters (my husband’s personal favorite), vanilla chai cake pops, and rainbow cookie donuts (a creation my husband personally requested...our guests absolutely loved them!!). Now that the wedding is over, I can say that not only were all the desserts displayed in such an aesthetically pleasing way, but everything tasted so delicious as well!! I highly recommend Melissa!!
