Gorgeous and delicious cake

We reached out to several KC bakeries with the same set of photos from Pinterest. All of the bakeries sent us to the same person: Ashley. When we looked at her social media, it was like seeing our Pinterest photos come to life! Her unique style of palette created flowers is so artistic and even more gorgeous in person. Additionally, she was an excellent communicator and dedicated to making the colors within the cake match the details of our wedding. The flavor sampler pack included in the cake package was really helpful in choosing flavors, though honestly all of them were fantastic. We chose the honey pistachio and double chocolate. I regretfully never got the opportunity to meet Ashley in person due to the tightly scheduled wedding timeline, but her cake was noted as the best wedding cake many of our guests had ever had!

Cakes are gorgeous and delicious

Clever Cakes made the most gorgeous and delicious cake for our wedding. Ashley could not be easier to work with. We thought we needed 175 serving in a combination of a three tiered cake and then kitchen cakes for the remaining servings. We asked for three favors – vanilla, chocolate, and pumpkin. Trust us and get the pumpkin cake-it is out of this world delicious. When our guest count dropped to 115, Ashley was flexible and easily modified the number of servings and even changed the flavors for the different tiers so that we could get the best ratios for all three flavors. Originally, I thought I had wanted a classic white three-tiered cake decorated with flowers, but a month or so the wedding, I saw a cake that she had done with pinks and oranges with flecks of gold in a water color design. When I contacted Ashley about doing something similar with greens she embraced the idea and WOW the cake Ashley created was simply gorgeous. She added the flowers supplied by Craig Sole Designs which really just took the whole look over the top. The cake was just as delicious as it was gorgeous and we and our guests loved it. You should hire Clever Cakes!
