Our Cake was a Celebrity at our Wedding!

Our wedding cake was a star at our wedding! It tasted every bit as good as it looked. We had a tasting back in the summer, sampling many different filings. We loved too many of them to choose only one, but ultimately were able to choose two, and make each tier a different flavor (cannoli cream and mixed berry). If we had been in the position to have a three-tier cake, I would have made the third one mocha (it, too, was so good!). We worked with the owner to design the cake itself, and she helped us to create this very specific, personalized/custom topper, which we adore and have now placed on a prominent shelf in our kitchen to look at every day. The morning after our wedding, the remaining cake was in a box in the fridge at our venue (where we stayed), and we were able to take it home with us, where we polished it all off before leaving on our honeymoon! What a treat that was, and a great way to transition from wedding day to honeymoon. It's so cool that the cake continues to play such a part in our daily lives (we have actually both put this picture of the cake as the background on our phones!). Visiting friends who with at our wedding the week after our honeymoon, they did also comment on the beauty and the quality and taste of the wedding cake. We cannot recommend JCakes enough.

Wedding cake of our dreams

J Cakes made us the most BEAUTIFUL 3 tired cake for our wedding day! We had a super fun cake tasting and got to choose THREE awesome flavors. One for each tire. I sent them decor through Amazon and had absolutely no worries about them making it perfect and brining it to our wedding venue. Everyone loved our wedding cake!! THANK YOU!
