DREAM Wedding Cake1
Dana's went above and beyond to make my fairytale cake a reality! I couldn't even believe how beautiful it looked, and how AMAZING it tasted! seriously. The apple spice cake with buttercream was an absolute dream. We couldn't even wait a month to eat our top tier! They were incredibly easy to work with and their work was STUNNING.

The best cake I have ever eaten (I'm serious)! We did two flavors, pumpkin and marble for our Fall wedding. We received so many compliments. Dana did a somewhat naked cake for us and added flowers from our florist. He was fantastic to work with and communication was easy! HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!

All that we expected
The cake tasting and cake for my wedding turned out great. No complaints. There's very little communication from the time of the contract being signed to wedding day. It wasn't needed. I reached out a month prior and was told we were all set.
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.
