    Phenomenal. Memomoriable.

    About 2 years ago, I had Dawn’s cake at a 50th Anniversary party. It. Was. Phenomenal. Once I got engaged, I knew exactly who I wanted to make my cake! We had a 4 tiered cake and half a sheet cake with 3 different flavors/fillings covered in buttercream icing. You would not believe how many people commented on the cake. It was delicious and I cannot WAIT to eat our anniversary cake (which by the way she makes and boxes separate so you have one!)! I would HIGHLY recommend Dawn. She is beyond amazing!

    Absolutely amazing!!

    Dawn is fantastic to work with! She was very flexible with meeting with the two of us for our wedding cake tasting. Our cake was absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! The cake also tasted amazing! She made beautiful cupcakes for the reception as well and they tasted just as amazing as they looked. She personally delivered the cake, cupcakes and decorated the cake on site. We couldn’t have been happier and are so glad we chose Dawn to make our cake!

    The husband says: absolutely fantastic, no need to say anything else.
