    We met with Irene almost a year ago to plan our dessert for our wedding this past weekend at the Red Clover Inn! We worked with her to create a delicious cake to cut and then had her make us mini pecan and pumpkin pies for our guests. Everyone was raving about our dessert! Thank you so much, Irene!

    Irene did an outstanding job of planning, designing and delivering our cake and desserts. She had a wonderful cake tasting for us as we began planning our cake. We must have had ten pieces of cake, all with different frostings, layers, etc. She was very patient as we made our decision on the perfect cake for us! Irene also helped us design a beautiful cake for our wedding. It was so perfectly simple, yet still had beautiful details. Irene's cake was exactly what we wanted. Irene worked very well with our florist/coordinator to deliver and decorate the cake. She also provided us with a beautiful and delicious assortment of desserts for our guests! Overall, Irene did an absolutely perfect job. I can't recommend her enough!!

    As the mother of the bride and event coordinator, I must write a review with the highest regard for Cakes by Irene. My daughter designed a dessert bar and Irene was more than flexible as we determined what items should be served and quantities. There were even last minute (minor) changes for which she was more than accommodating. The entire table was absolutely award winning in appearance and taste! As a matter of fact, many of the gluten free guests said that her chocolate cake was the BEST cake that they have ever had!

    Thank you Linda, It was a pleasure to work with you for Julie and Tom's wedding dessert buffet. Best wishes.
