We worked with Pam, she was amazing! She even went above and beyond to make our cake exactly what we wanted! We picked whipped buttercream icing w/ three teared square cake, w/ White choc.& Strwbrry filling, second was PB/ &banana, and 3rd, poppyseed cake w/ lemon. It was the hit of the night! It was gone in minutes! We had it delivered out in sandy without a hitch. Thank you so much for such a wonderful creation! Can’t wait for our anniversary cake!Sent on 09/11/2019
