We were extraordinarily pleased with Emma K Cakes for our wedding cake. We ordered enough to have ~30 extra slices and yet there was absolutely nothing left at the end of the night. Multiple people told me afterward it was the best cake they'd ever had (we ordered snickerdoodle and vanilla and snickerdoodle was a particular favorite). Honestly, the downside of ordering cake this good is that you might not get to eat much after your guests decimate it!! You've been warned! :)

Oh My Goodness. We visited Emma K Cakes after my parents ran into her stand at a Bridal Forum. Lisa was great - she had multiple (amazing) samples for us to try. We went with Chocolate, White, and White with Raspberry. She even made petit fours for us instead of cupcakes because I wanted something square and more like cake without having to cut slices. Her cakes were delicious. Everyone complimented them and a large number had seconds. I even had one person say "I don't like cake - but this cake is amazing, and I never like cake. It's so good." Which made me smile because I wanted every guest happy, and they were. Lisa made it an easy and stress free process to have wonderful deserts.

Lisa did a wonderful job! The cakes were beautiful and full of flavor. The pumpkin spice was a huge hit!! She was very easy to reach and responded quickly to messages. Highly recommend her!
