One word: incredible
Dawn is INCREDIBLE! She’s not only easy to work with, but she has THE best cake you’ll ever eat. They’re beautifully decorated and taste even better (if you can believe that). She executed EXACTLY what I was looking for on my wedding cake. I had countless guests telling us how wonderful the cake was, which was no surprise to me. It’s the day after our wedding and we’re already looking forward to eating our anniversary cake!! 😊Sent on 10/27/2019

Can’t say enough good things about Dawn... I used her for my daughters bridal shower & wedding. Everything is delectable, your guests will rave over it. Dawns presentation is 5 star, her setup of the cake & cupcakes at the wedding was elegant. It was truly a pleasure to work with her.Sent on 08/28/2019
