    Thoughtful and beautiful flavors

    We had a small elopement a couple of years ago at Los Poblanos Inn in New Mexico where Heather made a small and tasty wedding cake for us. It was a carrot pistachio cake to reflect Iranian flavors for us. She was very helpful with her suggestions when we were not sure what we wanted at first. The carrot pistachio cake was her suggestion and we loved it! I highly recommend her service to make your special day even more special!

    Thanks for the lovely review, Arman. I am so happy that you enjoyed the cardamom carrot cake with pistachios. Thanks for posting a photo of the cake - I don't always get a great photo of the cakes and am glad you did. Thank you!

    Heather is awesome!

    Heather is an incredible pastry chef!! She made the desserts for my wedding at Los Poblanos is ABQ and people absolutely raved about them! Most notable was a pecan tart!! It was to die for- beautiful and delicious! While she didn’t do my cake (I had promised my grandma that she could make it), I saw pictures of Heather’s gorgeous cakes and would have one million percent trusted her!! She’s the best!!!

    Thanks for the lovely review, Meghan. I adore the pecan tarts and am glad you did too. I was so happy that your grandmother made your cake, such a sweet memory.
