Dana took our vision for our wedding cake and made it even better with his creativity! It was delicious and our guests are still telling us how we had the best wedding cake they ever tasted! We were so pleased with the whole process!

Our cake was the first thing we booked in our wedding planning process. We knew exactly what we wanted it to look like and who we wanted to work with. Our tasting was absolutely delicious and we were able to pick out everything we wanted that day. I knew I wanted a giant cake even though our guest cap was 80 people. When Dana's team came back with our first "draft" I told them I wanted it to be BIGGER. And they did a great job accommodating this crazy lady and her big cake dreams. It was now big enough to feed 230 guests. The day of went as smoothly as possible and my giant cake was the biggest hit of the night. Everyone raved about it from how it looked to how it tasted. I told the staff at the venue that I didn't want those tiny slivers of cake that people usually get at weddings. I wanted big cake slices and I wanted to encourage guests to try multiple flavors (each layer was a different flavor: vanilla, strawberry, orange and lemon with white chocolate mousse filling). It went so well that the groom and I each only got one piece and no leftovers :( We'll be coming back for more cake on our upcoming birthdays and anniversary next year. Many thanks to Dana and his team for our perfect summer citrus cake!

We came in with an unusual cake topper and a very general idea of what we wanted for the cake and he hit a Homerun! All our guests raved about the cake, how it looked as well as how it tasted! I'd include a picture of the cake but I don't want anyone to steal our idea.
Beautiful cakes and they taste amazing!!
Desserts by Dana is my first choice for all types of desserts. I have used them for my and my wife's 40th Birthday cakes. We also stop in for cupcakes and other treats on a regular basis. Dana was able to produce a Justin Timberlake themed cake for my wife's 40th Birthday that was outstanding. I still am getting compliments on how great the cake looked and how much better it tasted. Amaretto Cake with Lemon curd filling is unbelievable. Don't forget to tell Dana that DJ Ted Rock recommended Desserts by Dana.
Breath taking creations which taste amazing! Highly recommend Dana for your wedding or event! Word to the wise, don't bring your diet.
