Leslie is always a pleasure to work with!
Leslie's work is unrivaled. Her company had made cakes for us over the past decade. She is creative and her designs are stunning. Despite her national popularity she remains humble and her price point for her products is more than reasonable. We love her and will continue to use her for future events.Sent on 03/27/2019

Surprise Groom's Cake
My mom surprised us with this amazing groom's cake and we were blown away. My husband is a rocket scientist and we met in college. Not only is this cake amazing looking - both the rocket and our college mascot were incredibly well done - it was so delicious! Tasted like a Reeses (our favorite candy and our last name). The cake was fluffy and yummy, the fondant was super good, and the filing with so creamy. Worth every penny!Sent on 08/04/2019

Cake was amazing!!!
This cake came out absolutely amazing and I got so many compliments on how delicious it was!! We did an earl grey cake with raspberry buttercream filling and swiss buttercream frosting. We kept it simple, three tiers, and added real flowers to it. They were so easy to work with!Sent on 06/25/2019
