I didn't have much contact with the bakery, since my mom picked out the cake! But she described exactly what I wanted, and they were able to make a very nice looking cake using the green and pink ribbons we used with our decorations. It still tasted good on our 1 year anniversary!

Sandy was very easy to work with - she is very straightforward and wants you to get the most for your money! Our cake turned out amazing - it tasted wonderful and looked beautiful! I'd definitely recommend this place if you are looking for something easy, perfect for your checkbook, and delicious.

I had a 3-tiered waterfall cake and it was beautiful. The staff did a good job incorporating the colors and ribbons of my choice into the cake. The taste was rich and everyone seemed to really have loved the red velvet part of it. It was also inexpensive for all we had done.
