The absolute best of the best

Paper Cake Events came under high recommendation and I can certainly tell you that Whitnie is deserving of so! We were late in the game of establishing our cake vendor but since we were only doing a wedding cake, she made an exception for us and we were so grateful! Our tasting was incredible as the cake options were so full of flavor and perfectly plated, which made it a little difficult for our decision (which isn’t a bad thing whatsoever) but we finally made our selection. Whitnie was very helpful and extremely accommodating to our preferences when it came down to cake selection, design, etc. I can surely tell you that we spent the next 11 months craving our cake and even bragging about how great it was going to be because we were so excited to have everyone enjoy Whitnie’s magic. The cake was an absolute hit at our wedding and we were lucky enough to be her second to last wedding cake. We’re full of gratitude and extremely happy with Paper Cake Events!

Amazing Desserts

Just Baked was amazing! We have been frequenting this bakery for years so we knew Libby had to do our desserts for the wedding. She made a wonderful dessert bar and our decadent cutting cake. Our guests loved the variety of flavors and are still talking about how delicious our desserts were. Delivery and setup was perfect. Everything looked beautiful. Thank you!

From cookies to cake!

Delicious baked goods and stunning wedding cake. Our story began, when I ordered fresh baked cookies to be delivered to our college freshman in her dorm. Fast forward several years, her wedding cake was now being created by the same woman. We did not realize this, at first, but its part of what made the experience so special. We originally ordered a 3 tier churro cake for the fall wedding, but then added on the signature cookies and rice krispy treats to create a dessert bar. It was not only beautiful, but well enjoyed by all. We like cake and wanted it to taste as nice as it looked. They will work with you to customize the flavors and design to make your day very special.
