Wedding cake was absolutely delicious for 9/28/19 wedding
My experience Working with Donna to create my wedding cake was wonderful. She had great suggestions. The wedding cake came out even better than the picture I showed her. I choose the lemon cake with vanilla filling and fresh raspberries. Our guests loved the cake and talked about it for days. It was so moist and flavorful. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Donna. She made it such a wonderful experience. Thank you Donna for creating the wedding cake of my dreams.Sent on 10/06/2019

Delicous Spice Wedding Cake!
We LOVED our cake from Donna. She was one of the 2 vendors that Pond House gives and an option. We tried her cake during the open house, and was amazing! So flavorful and moist.Sent on 09/26/2019
We called to book our tasting this past spring. I had also requested to try the spice cake, as I was told that was not always on the tasting sample. (They made a whole cupcake in that flavor for us, I was impressed! )
When we arrived, we sat with Donna, looked around the showroom and some photos of past cakes she has made. I definitely suggest doing some research first on her Instagram and website to see a few styles, and get an idea as to what you may want. As we talked through the process, we settled on a very classic 3 tier round cake. Each layer with a different buttercream texture. We had her also add flowers from her garden in out color scheme (small extra charge, as that is not included in the venue package.)
Then comes the tasting! My husband and I polished the whole plate! We ended up with the spice cake, with an apple pie filling, and a lightly spiced BC (Great for a fall or winter wedding!) A few other options we liked were the Almond cake with pistachio BC. There is also a lemon cake with fresh strawberries we loved.
We were thrilled with the look and taste of the cake. The guest loved it as well. We made the decision as well to NOT have a dessert table at the wedding, so people would eat the cake!
Thank you Donna, we loved the cake! You made the whole process very streamlined and easy.
Creative cakes By Donna's reply:Congratulations to you both! We show everyone your cake! So glad to be a part of such a special day!

The real deal
Having spent 30 years in the food industry, I can say Donna and her cakes are the REAL DEAL. From the first phone call, Donna made sure to get to know us. Throughout the entire process she was very helpful and communicative. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting in her shop and chatting about cake (and food and drink!) and our lives and what brought us together. We chose a lemon cake with lemon filling with alternating layers of strawberries and blueberries. Our loved ones are still raving about the delicious moist cake! There is a reason that she has been at this for such a long time. Her talent, passion and ability to really connect with her clients are all reasons that Donna is such a gem. Thank you for your part in making our day perfect Donna!Sent on 10/12/2019
