Elysia Root designed our wedding cake and it was even more beautiful and delicious than we had hoped! We had a short engagement and planned our wedding in three months. I honestly didn't have the time or desire to research or try a lot of cakes. Luckily, my husband found Elysia Root Cakes and we didn't need to look any further.

With nothing more to go on than the pictures of the beautiful cakes on her website, we booked a tasting with Elysia at her studio. We tried a few different types of cake and several different icings and finally decided on a three-tiered cake with different flavors on each tier. There is a ton of flexibility and she will customize your cake in any way you'd like.

We were not picky when it came to the cake design so we pointed out two different cakes we liked that were on display and Elysia took our ideas and ran with them. One hesitation I had was with having a fondant covered cake. In my experience, fondant usually tastes like a delightful combination of cardboard and chalk. I expressed my hesitation to Elysia, who said that her fondant was different. She let me try some and she was right, it was actually delicious! In fact, on my wedding day, I ended up stealing some of my guests' fondant from their pieces. It just might have been my favorite part!

We have had non stop rave reviews about our cake. Our guests loved it and commented on how good it was. I can confidently say that it's the best wedding cake I have had. Our venue ended up cutting small pieces of the cake so we had a ton of leftovers. Even after a week in the fridge, that cake still tastes amazing. We'll be eating the leftovers for a long time, probably until it's time to enjoy our anniversary tier, and we're definitely not sad about that.

The entire experience with Elysia Root Cakes was great. The process was easy, communication was prompt, and the delivery and instructions were perfect. Now we just need another occasion for a cake...

Elysia Root Cakes provided the cake for our wedding in September 2017 and she was absolutely incredible to work with. She is very professional and made us the cake of our dreams.

Not only did it end up looking spectacular, but it tasted amazing and we had many of our guests tell us how delicious they thought it was. We already cannot wait to get our anniversary cake from her next year!

To anyone looking for the perfect bakery to create that stunning cake for their big day, look no further - Elysia Root is simply the best.

Our cake was delicious and beautiful! We went into the tasting with soo many ideas. The team helped us narrow it down and create a cake that was absolutely perfect. I look forward to finding a reason to use them again!

You won't be disappointed if decided to hire her for her beautiful work. She's also really awesome to work with other wedding vendors :)
