    We had three flavors...Red Velvet, Carrot, and Chocolate Raspberry. My husband usually does not like chocolate cake, and isn't a huge fan of carrot cake either, but he LOVED both flavors at Dessert Works. In fact, he enjoyed those two more than the Red Velvet, which is one of his favorites.

    We spent more than I had ever planned on spending for a wedding cake, but our cake was beautiful and worth every cent. Completely delicious.

    I almost forgot to mention three funny stories: 1) My husband walked into the consultation room and the first thing he said was "this is what a cake tasting is supposed to LOOK like." 2) They were incredibly patient with me and my notorious indecisiveness and crazy OCD planning tendencies. I even brought sketches to our first meeting!! (post wedding, I am laughing at myself) 3) We went back after our initial consultation (because we're greedy, lol) and bought a pumpkin cheesecake pastry for a friend...it was so good, she hid the rest from her husband! lol

    Excellent Experience!

    My husband and I got married last November, at the Lenox Hotel in Boston - who partners with Dessert Works to provide brides and grooms wedding cakes with their wedding package. We were so thrilled with how our cake turned out - absolutely beautiful! Jacqueline was so responsive, professional, and thorough. We would HIGHLY recommend working with Jacqueline and team at Dessert Works!
