Beautiful & Delicious Wedding Cake!

We loved our wedding cake from them! I actually grew up nearby and had always seen Le Gateau Elegant, but had never actually gone in until our wedding planner recommended them. Karen was so sweet, professional, easy to work with, and responsive to all of my questions. We sent her a few pictures of cakes that we thought were pretty, and she gave us estimates on price and made some suggestions on how to balance aesthetics and our budget. Karen gave us a complimentary tasting box with 16 flavors, 2 substantial pieces of each, which was so much fun trying with our parents. We ended up choosing a 3-tier tiramisu cake with buttercream frosting, which was supplemented by a sheet cake. The cake turned out beautifully and, thanks to Karen's help, we were able to use two cake toppers. The cake was also delicious. We will definitely be back for other sweet treats!

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!
