    Amazing Wedding Cake!

    I didn't know exactly what I wanted when I met with Darlene but after speaking with her she figured out the perfect cake for us. I got so many comments from the guests on the cake. It was absolutely a dream cake. I highly recommend using Darlene's Specialty Cakes!

    I found Darlene on line when I was looking for someone to do a very special birthday cake with a goose hunting theme. I shared my ideas with her and the end result was amazing! Big hit with the crowd for sure.

I tried Darlene's mini cupcakes a few months ago at an event and they were delicious! They were so small and cute but so tasty. The cupcakes were so yummy I could not stop eating them and even took a few home. I do plan to call Darlene's for my upcoming event.
