Beautiful and delicious cake
As part of our wedding catering package, we had the pleasure of working with Donna to create our wedding cake. Setting up the appointment was very easy, and Donna was incredibly accommodating when my now-husband and I got stuck in literally *hours* of traffic and were very late to our tasting appointment. She stayed open late for us and didn't make us feel rushed at all (in fact, we were there for nearly 2 hours). It was so fun to taste all the combinations, and everything was delicious. We settled on an almond cake, with a layer of pistachio and coconut in between. Neither of us were really fussed about what the buttercream frosting looked like - we pointed to a picture she showed us and said that looks good! Donna said she would provide some fall florals to accent the cake. We left our cake topper with her and went on our merry way!
Donna called a few days before the wedding to confirm guest count, flavors, and delivery.
Arriving at the wedding venue, the cake is the first thing that I saw on our wedding day. My jaw literally dropped. It was THE most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Donna went above and beyond anything I could have expected. The cake was perfect- 5 layers of textured buttercream and the most stunning flowers ever; not to mention it was the best wedding cake I've ever tasted (is that bias, because it was my wedding!?!). Our guests loved the cake and my family enjoyed the leftovers for the rest of the week!
I should also mention my mother and sister purchased a cake for my bridal shower from Donna. It was funfetti flavored - my request! Donna nailed that also - guests were (and still are) raving about this cake! I'd recommend Creative Cakes by Donna to anyone.Sent on 10/05/2019

Beautiful, delicious, unique cakes!
We were able to get a cake from Creative Cakes by Donna for our wedding at the Pond House Café and are so glad we did! We really enjoyed the tasting where we got to try a variety of cake and fillings. We ultimately decided on a chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling. We also got to talk through some design ideas with Donna while she sketched out our vision of a winter cake inspired by a cable knit sweater. She was so friendly and easy to work with! When we saw our cake at the wedding, it was so beautiful and exactly what we had envisioned. The only thing better than how it looked was how it tasted – it was hands down the best wedding cake I’ve ever had! We had so many of our guests tell us how good it was. We got to take some home after the wedding as well, which was awesome. Highly recommend Creative Cakes by Donna because you’ll get artistry AND a delicious dessert for your special day!Sent on 01/22/2020

Love never “Taste” so good
Donna is fantastic. When we met her she had such a great personality. So many cakes and flavors but never made you feel overwhelmed. My wife and I knew what we wanted and she executed. Cake was so tasty that when I dropped the topper off she even let me has another sampler of our flavor. The only issue you will have is that it is so beautiful you don’t want to cut it. Moist and delicious to the last bite!Sent on 01/16/2020
We have partnered with Donna for several years now as she does the cakes within our wedding packages. Every cake Donna creates is amazing and to the taste and style of her clients. She has been such a pleasure to work with!

Love Love Love all cakes I've ever had with Donna over my 10 years of working together!
