    Oh my goodness....I'm still salivating over my cake and will be re-ordering a sheet cake in my wedding flavors just to quench my appetite! It was deliciously amazing!!

    We opted for a two tier wedding cake with Red Velvet/Whipped Ice for one tier and Dulce de Leche/Cream Cheese for the second. Being a HUGE cake aficionado, I had high hopes for my wedding cake and I wasn't even remotely disappointed. The cake was SO moist and flavorful, so one piece simply wasn't an option. The style was just as I had requested and my cake topper/embellished lace was applied perfectly.

    Theresa and Mark outdid themselves on my wedding cake - guests raved about it and I'm still salivating. Thank you for a cake that truly seemed to be made with love!

    Theresa from I Would Rather be Baking is fabulous, and so are her desserts! She worked with me over the phone to customize a dessert spread based on our wants and our budget, and it turned out perfectly. From our smaller custom wedding cake (so good!) to three kinds mini pies and two kinds of brownies, everything was delicious and our guests were thrilled. I'd recommend Theresa and her desserts to anyone : )
