    Everyone will be talking about the cake

    We have nothing but amazing things to say about our experience. The tasting made it hard to choose! but we ended up going with a three tier cake - vanilla with dulce de Leche filling, strawberry cake with strawberry filling and pineapple cake with a vanilla filling. I highly recommend!! I’m glad we ordered for more people than we had because they all wanted to try every flavor. When we had to postpone our wedding, Custom Cake was understanding and worked with us. I hope to have them make our cakes for future events as well.

    Always Exceeds Expectations

    This is the 3rd or 4th time I've used Custom Cake Design for landmark birthday events (60, 80, 90). Each time, I present ideas, discuss options and the outcome always exceeds my and my family's expectations. The cakes are always original, beautiful, and delicious. My family is hooked on the white raspberry flavor. I'm not kidding when I say that my family longs for someone to hit one of the decade birthdays so I'll order a cake. Raquel just helped me with my Mom's 90th including cake, cupcakes, cake pops with delivery and setup. Hopefully, I can attach pics so you can see what I mean.

    Custom Cake Design's reply:

    Thank you!!!!!! Jennifer!!!!
    Always a pleasure for us to work with you and your family and to be part of those memorable moments.
    CCD team!
