    Amazing Experience!

    Karen from Le Gateau Elegant was very responsive and great to work with. She prepared an amazing tasting box for us and we had such a difficult time choosing between all the amazing flavors. Karen and her team made our wedding cake and several additional desserts. The cake was beautiful - exactly what we had asked for and both the cakes and desserts were absolutely delicious. Our guests loved them! I would definitely recommend Le Gateau Elegant and look forward to being back in the area to have the opportunity to stop by the bakery for some treats!

    Delicious and beautiful cake!

    After doing a few cake tastings, we knew that the cake at Le Gateau Elegant was the best and most moist we had tasted during our rounds. Karen was really easy to work with and she saw our vision very easily. We had 2 different flavors in our 3 tiered cake, which I am very glad we did to give people options between chocolate and the princess. Many of our guests at the wedding had multiple slices of cake because it was so good. Karen did an amazing job!
