    Gorgeous Wedding Cake

    We picked Dessert Works from the options our venue, Blue Hill Country Club provided us, since the cake was included in our package. The cake was gorgeous and delicious. It was exactly what we expected from our tasting. They were so easy to work with. Everyone keeps raving about the cake and loved the look of it.
