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!Sent on 07/01/2019

My wife and I absolutely loved our wedding cake. My mother swears by Le Gateau and only gets cakes from them for everything from birthdays to my wedding. The cake was stunningly beautiful and delicious. The guests raved about it and the pictures of it were liked by nearly all our friends. The staff is always so kind and responsive, they answered all our questions right away and were always helpful. We had an outdoor wedding and they even helped us with flavors and decorations that could survive the summer sun and stay beautiful and delicious.Sent on 09/04/2017
I would recommend them to anyone and everyone that needs a cake for any reason.

We set up several cake tastings at different places, pretty sure that we would end up going with a recommendation from my friend. But when we got to Le Gateau Elegant, we were totally blown away! While other places we tried had decent cake and fillings, Le Gateau Elegant creates these mind-blowing flavor profiles (one of our favorites was Apricot Princess - rich vanilla cake filled with custard, apricot preserves, whipped cream, and marzipan). Doing the tasting (Karen took the time to meet with us herself and was very patience and helpful) was a game changer because we were surprised which flavors ended up being our favorite. In the end, we selected 3 different flavors (on different tiers). This vendor was very easy to work with and went above and beyond in meeting our special delivery requirements due to the nature of our venue. By the way, Karen totally undersold the buttercream frosting... it was the best we've ever had!Sent on 12/21/2015
