Book Confectionate cakes!! First, the cake tasting was so fun and delicious. It really was so easy to pair our favorite flavors together! Next, designing the cake was so easy and it was everything I wanted!! They were so flexible with every part of the process and we are so happy with our decision! A lot of cake vendors made you pay for the cake tasting and they gave you either too many options or not enough that it was very difficult to make a decision. With Confectionate Cakes, this was not the case. They also were very accommodating to my budget and made sure to give me options with the design to best suit my dream plus what my budget would allow. I really wanted a small cake even though I would need a big one to feed all the guests. Most bakeries quoted just a bigger cake and would not accommodate the design I wanted. Confectionate Cakes had sheet cake made in the back for the majority of the guests so that I could have the cake I wanted. There are so many more examples of how wonderful they were - but hopefully you get the point! Lastly, all of the guests ranted about how good the cake was: white velvet cake, fresh strawberries, and white chocolate buttercream, and said they never actually enjoy wedding cake and they LOVED ours!Sent on 02/07/2017

My wife and I came to Laura in a time of desperation! After searching for months and going to what seemed like a million cake tastings we had settled on someone who was booked and paid for. Without warning, our CONTRACTED cake person closed her cake business and we were back to square one. When we met Laura she assured us she could get our cake and cupcakes done in time, with the design we wanted and the almond flavor we had already had our hearts set on. She even offered to set up our cake table with the tulle and lights I had already purchased at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!!!! Her demeanor was pleasant her cake and cupcakes were delicious, and she was such a joy to work with! We loved our cake so much that we removed our top layer from the freezer just a week later and ate it (so much for waiting until our 1 year anniversary).

Confectionate Cakes are the best!! Laura made my wedding cake with the fresh strawberries. All I can say is “It was Awesome”. My guests absolutely loved it!! She was on time to set up my cake and the table looked beautiful. If you need a specialty cake and want it to taste and look good, get a cake from Confectional Cakes and you won’t go wrong! Thanks Laura!!
Yum! Yum! Created a beautiful wedding cake for a wedding at our farm. Highly recommend. Sandy Pleasant, The Gazebo at Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm, Roxboro, NC
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.
Laura is well known for having the yummiest cake on the planet! She also does a beautiful job decorating them. I've worked with her at rustic weddings and each time, the cake looked unique and gorgeous!
