I wish I could mail out samples and photos of my cake, that's how impressive it was! So hard to find the words to describe this dream wedding cake. Lara did an amazing job of capturing our royalty theme. During the tasting when she did the first sketch I was immediately excited. We had a 4 tier cake with 3 different flavors, our guests were so amazed. It tasted amazing. Not to mention, they were able to eat with their eyes first! The cake had gold moldings all around it, and a detailed crown at the top. It was so elegant we just couldn't eat it. We decided to freeze the crown and save for a special occasion. I am more than happy with the serviceSent on 05/16/2017
