    I could not have had such a wonderful, amazing, gluten-free cake without Shavon and Jen's Cakes.

    Oh how I love Shavon. In fact, I'm going to be contacting her for a replica of our wedding cake, so we can have something on our 1 year anniversary (we TRIED to save the top layer of our cake, but lord we just couldn't help ourselves!!! it was sooooo goooood).

    Shavon is a total sweetheart, and very professional. She works incredibly hard, and is so very talented, too.

    I have NO problem giving them referrals. In fact, I already have. Everyone at the reception was raving about the cake... I wish I would have had business cards for them!! :(

    Thank you Shavon and please give my thanks to your wonderful Mom. I will be forwarding photos soon, as I"m told I have some of you two :)

    Delicious and beautiful cake!

    From the first email exchange with Jen's Cakes, I knew they would have excellent service. My contact was Aimee and knowing I was a covid bride with an ever-changing guest list as well as date (!), she was quick to set up a take home tasting for my fiance to pick up. The tasting was so much fun and featured a great variety of flavors. We hired them and chose 3 tiers and a half sheet cake to accommodate our number of guests and we chose 3 flavors. I got so many compliments on the day of and after about the cake flavor and you can see the pictures speak for themselves for how beautiful it turned out. Was so happy to have found Jen's Cakes and would recommend!

    We worked with Jen's Cakes for our wedding cake and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! Our initial cake tasting with them was the first indication that they would be great. Strangely enough, I was wasting away with the flu at the time, so my fiance (now husband) had to go to the tasting by himself. As I listened in over the phone, I could tell how he loved everything he tried. Wishing that I could have some, I thought I simply had to opt out of this one until a later date. Luckily, the ladies at Jen's Cakes were so awesome, they prepared a sampling of several cakes for my husband to take home to -- talk about pre-emptive service!

    As I tasted each of them, it was a no-brainer that we would have to work with them for our wedding -- I mean, how often does one find wedding cakes super tasty? Let's face it: most wedding cakes have a reputation for being vaguely reminiscent of cardboard. Especially if they are attractive cakes. But Jen's creations appeared to be beautiful AND delicious -- AND, their prices were by far and away the best deal we had found in our exhaustive searching.

    Hashing out ideas for a cake that resonated to our fairy tale theme with our chosen flavors, we were very happy with our plan. Yet closer to the date, I wondered about the gold airbrushed look we'd chosen -- would it be exactly what we wanted? What if we wanted a more metallic look? Well, of course we wanted a more metallic golden look (believe me it looked royal, not tacky ;-)

    In response to my inquiry about wanting a more heavy dry-brushed gold appearance, Jen did us a HUGE favor and gave us exactly what we wanted without increasing the price -- and believe me, this adjustment was actually an up-charge.

    And gloriously, on the wedding day, I beheld a gorgeous golden cake with scrolls -- one that looked totally fairy tale, totally royal, and totally expensive (even though it wasn't). It was definitely a conversation piece in and of itself! But still . . . what about the taste? It's easy to make cake taste moist and delicious in small samples, but how would it be for the real deal in large quantities?

    Absolutely amazing. When my husband and I cut the cake and tried a bite, I was overwhelmed by how it tasted even BETTER than when I'd tried it the first time. Seriously, this was unbelievable: how could something be so beautiful and affordable and delicious at the same time? It really was the best wedding cake I've ever tasted and I am a very tough critic.

    As could be expected, the cake was demolished by people who came back for seconds, and finally, thirds. Indeed, I was not the only one who adored this cake. Luckily, we did make arrangements to save the top tier so that we can once again enjoy a delicate slice on our first year anniversary.

    . . . . So, f you decide to work with Jen's cakes, I imagine your experience will be rather similar ours! Needless to say, I highly recommend.
    P.S. Don't forget to preserve the top tier!!!
