    Marina Sousa, with Just Cake, was wonderful to work with! She created an elegant cake, with the same aesthetic as our invitations, included our monogram as the focal point, and worked with our florist, Fionna Floral - they are business neighbors, so it was super simple! She even created two custom grooms cakes - a surprise for my husband!

    Marina and her team created beautiful cake for our wedding this past September in Carmel that everyone is still raving about! She was very accommodating and we had a fabulous tasting session at her office in Capitola - so many delicious options to choose from! We decided on four different flavors - the meyer lemon cake with lemon mousse, lemon curd and olallieberry compote (which she made with the just the right amount of tartness that I wanted), a chocolate cake with caramel mousse, salted caramel and toasted almonds/praline crumble (so very decadent), red velvet with toasted pecans and cream cheese butter cream and finally the spiced cake with caramel cream cheese mousse and apple compote (perfect for the fall). All of the flavors were out of this world! We had tried four different vendors before we met with Marina and all of them had been so disappointing but not Marina. Her cakes were the best in taste and texture. We have been hearing quotes such as "that was not only the best wedding cake I have ever tasted, but the best dessert I have EVER had!" Marina worked in conjunction with our florist to have matching flowers to our centerpieces decorating the cake - we couldn't be happier! I am already counting down the days until we can order our anniversary cake from Marina & her team. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
