    Laura is the best!

    Laura is an incredible baker and made selecting our cake one of the easiest experiences of planning our wedding. She was able to quickly guide us from unspecific desires to a concrete plan. We also didn’t require any convincing that the cake was delicious. One taste had us both agreeing this was the best cake we had ever had. Her services were also beyond reasonably priced, making this selection a slam dunk and an incredibly easy recommendation.

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!
