Dawn made our 2020 Covid Wedding Easy Going and Flexible
In the last month we had to reduce our 400+ guest list to 15 people. We had already paid Dawn, however she worked wonderfully with us to make our payment work for both our small wedding and then work out a plan our 2021 planned reception. Dawn made the initial tasting a fun and adventurous experience, and her response to email message was perfect. So glad we came across Dawn in order to have her take part in part of our special day!!Sent on 01/25/2021

Dawn was absolutely amazing to work with! Due to COVID we had a few important changes literally a month before our wedding and Dawn made everything work and run as smooth as it possibly could have! We had numerous guests compliment the cupcakes, and ask where we ordered them, they are wonderful, and we will definitely be returning to her again!Sent on 02/02/2021

Dawn is Simply the Best of the Best!
Dawn is simply the BEST! I initially met with her a year prior to my wedding (thinking I had picked out a wedding theme). A couple months prior to Wedding I messaged Dawn about changing the design of my cake, and she nailed the new design! It looked and tasted amazing! I highly recommend Dawn to any and everyone!Sent on 10/21/2020
Dawn is a true professional and her cakes and cupcakes are absolutely mouth-watering! I find that it is sometimes hard to have a really gorgeous cake that tastes just as amazing as it looks, but Dawn gets it done every time!
Beyond tasty! Her cakes are unforgettable! True artistry at its best!
Dawn's cakes are creative, gorgeous, and made from scratch. Call Dawn for a FABULOUS cake and a wonderful experience!!
