    Delicious, fun, awesome cake!

    Planning my beach wedding remotely was a handful, but Laura at Confectionate Cakes made the wedding cake planning completely stress free! She happily accommodated all of our flavor requests, took care of the custom cake topper that I had shipped directly to her, and decorated the cake in a fun yet elegant beachfront theme. It was perfect! And the taste! Everyone raved about the cake. It was completely gone by the end of the night. Laura's buttercream icing is hands down the best! Pick Laura for your cake needs, and you won't be disappointed!!

    Piece of Cake!

    Laura was helpful, flexible, and super fair with her pricing. She took the time to meet with me for an initial consultation and then was so kind as to bring the cake samples to my work so I could easily take them home for me and my fiance to try. This cake is truly the best I have ever tasted, my husband and I ate a little bit every night of one of the leftover layers. Seriously so rich and decadent. We can't wait to dive into our anniversary layer. Great experience, would recommend Laura to any brides I know!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Laura on several occassions. She is funny, sweet, and so easy to work with. Her no drama attitude and easy going nature is very refreshing. Her cakes and cupcakes are always a hit. Above all, her "Yeah, I can do that." perspective is a perfect compliment to the way we do business at A Paradigm Shift Event! I highly recommend her.
