Delicious Cake and Masterful Wedding Cake Artist

We were blown away by the flavors of our cake and the execution by Zara. She is absolutely wonderful to work with and a delightful partner. We loved her flavors and the cake was delicious! No hard fondant and the cake was perfectly balanced and not too sweet.

Everyone at our wedding raved about the beautiful design, the colors, and most of all, the flavors. We had a destination wedding so unfortunately, we couldn't take it home with us but we savored every bite!

Zara is kind, accommodating, so talented, and made the process so easy. We're grateful to have found such an amazing partner for our wedding. She is a treasure and we would choose her a hundred times over!
