    Davis Wedding

    Dawn did an amazing job with our cake and cupcakes. The amount of compliments we received was crazy. Not only was our cake and cupcakes phenomenal looking but they tasted even better. They were so moist! I've been to a lot of weddings and I've never had cake or cupcakes as moist as hers! I can't wait to use her for future events! So many people were asking who did our cake and cupcakes. I'll forever recommend her to people. I was just blown away with how beautiful it was. I also loved that she makes a anniversary cake separate from the actual cake and I'm even more thankful she saved us back one cupcakes from each flavor because they were gone before we had a chance to get any! Thank you so much Dawn! It was beautiful.

    Best wedding cupcakes!

    Dawn was amazing from the start. She was very prompt in her initial response and throughout my wedding planning. She made exactly what we envisioned and our guests are still talking about how great the cupcakes were. 10/10 would recommend using her for your wedding day needs!
