The Icing on the Cake!
Back in October of 2019 we flew over to Bend (from FL) to check out some vendors, see our venue, + do a "tasting" with a very well known local bakery. Much to our disappointment, I arrived at the bakery to find 4 very dried out cupcakes, no one to assist me, + anything but a tasting. (Yes, we had discussed a tasting via email weeks in advance; they knew we were coming.) As we drove around waiting for our next appointment my mom stumbled on these same reviews for Crumb Cakery + emailed Tara. Although we were unable to meet her on that trip, my mom insisted that she "just [had] a good feeling about Tara" so we should come back once more before the wedding to meet her. Mother's intuition... Spot on!!
In January, after some shifts to our wedding plans, we made a trip out to Bend + met with Tara for a tasting. THIS WAS A TRUE TASTING!! From trying out multiple combinations to being encouraged to create our own; not to mention how absolutely delicious everything was. WE WERE SOLD! To be honest, we had not even wanted a cake but the family had pushed us to get one. As life would have it after the tasting we were reluctant to pick a flavor so we ended up choosing two for the cake + designing an entire dessert table for all 15 people (including ourselves) that would be attending the wedding.
For months Tara + I messaged back and forth on how to bring this table to life + since we are from out of town she even made a run to Homegoods to pick out some display trays for us. Talk about going above + beyond! The sweets became one of our most anticipated parts of our wedding + our family could not wait to taste it all. The table display was gorgeous, everything tasted amazing, + the three boxes of leftover sweets were eaten the day following the wedding leaving us with only one box carrying our top tier to be taken back to FL with us for our anniversary!
Tara is a dream to work with, a true pastry chef, + artist. If I lived in Bend, I'd go to her for all my confection needs. Please do not hesitate to contact her for whatever you need. You will not regret it!
Thank you so much for everything, Tara. We love you!Sent on 11/03/2020

The Perfect Cake!
When we met with Crumb Cakery a year before the wedding, we had a specific marble vision. She told us it would probably taste bad, and she had a STUNNING alternative with a "glass-like glaze." I watched her insta videos of other colors of the glaze all year, and was blown away to finally see ours. It was absolutely perfect! She also did 3 additional cake flavors AND macaroon wedding favors for all 220 guests!Sent on 05/14/2019
Crumb Cakery's reply:Emily, I am so fortunate to work with beautiful couples like you and Zac! So happy you loved the long anticipated marbled glaze and thank you for trusting my guidance and artistic ability to give you the cake you envisioned. What a treat to be a part of your day and to send a little piece of my bakery home with all of your guests

Beautiful Wedding Cake
Tara produced a stunningly beautiful cake for our wedding that exactly fit the description we had talked about. She also easily accommodated a last-minute change in the size of the cake. We couldn't find a time to do a sit-down tasting but she worked with us to provide a take-home sample of different flavor combinations we requested. It was so hard to choose since everything was delicious. The final product was also amazingly tasty. We received tons of compliments on both the look and taste of the cake! Thank you so much, Tara! Highly recommend.Sent on 11/20/2018
Crumb Cakery's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Christine! It was wonderful to work with you. You were the most beautiful bride and your wedding was stunning as well! Congrats, I wish you and your husband well in your next chapter of life! ❤️
