The Best Wedding Cake I've Ever Had

From the get go of starting to plan our wedding, we knew that the food and cake were super important to us. We were not dissapointed! Guests raved about the 3 tiered wedding cake that we had- the unique flavors and setup. They were super accomodating to our requests, even adding a little miniature of our dog to the cake! Guests continually came up to us all night saying that it was the best cake they ever had!

Delicious cake, amazing to work with

My husband and I ordered a spice cake for 100 people for our October wedding, and WOW - it could not have been more delicious. We met with Susie for our tasting, who is incredibly knowledgeable and an absolutely lovely person, and she helped us feel confident in the both the size we ordered and flavor combination we chose (vanilla buttercream, raspberry jam, spice cake - so. good.). Our guests raved about it! We're super excited for our first anniversary just to have some more of this cake!!

Yummy cake - will order again for other events

We had the marble pound cake with chocolate frosting and red velvet with cream cheese filling at our wedding. Both flavors were very good. Cake was delivered on time day of and Susie was helpful throughout the prep stages. We did a small wedding cake and some sheet cakes for the rest of our guests. Everyone enjoyed!
