    Excellent!

    We are so glad that we chose Modern! Our bridal white cake with raspberry ricotta filling was the most perfect cake! Our guests raved about it! We can hardly wait until our one year anniversary to have our top of it! Thank you Modern!

    Delicious desserts & accommodating staff

    My husband and I got married at the Glastonbury Hills Country Club (GHCC) on Saturday 8/24/19. We selected their Premium Wedding Package (www.glastonburyhills.com/Weddings/Wedding_Packages) which includes Wedding cake provided by Modern Pastry. We were so pleased with Carla and the team over there, from cake tasting through to wedding day. We went to a cake tasting about a month and a half prior to the wedding and spent over an hour tasting different combinations of cake types and fillings. When we started shifting gears to wanting a mix of cutting cake and mini desserts, they were so accommodating. We landed on a cutting cake (~30 slices; almond cake w/ ricotta & raspberry filling) frosted ‘naked’ style and a ton of mini desserts including cream puffs, tiramisu, Italian cannolis, french cannolis w/ vanilla cream & nuts on top, NY cheesecake square, blueberry fruit tart, and 4 flavors of mini cupcakes. All included in the existing wedding package -- no extra fees or charges.

    When figuring out how to display everything, GHCC and Modern worked together seamlessly to plan re-plating the desserts onto white platters and then displaying them on wooden crates that I bought from JOANN Fabrics. We offered to-go containers for guests to package a few desserts up at the end of the night and almost all of the desserts went! Anything left came back to the hotel with us to enjoy as a late-night snack. Not a big deal but I wish me and/or the bakery had created small signs or place cards describing each mini dessert, particularly the mini cupcakes so guests knew what was inside. No complaints on it but a ‘nice to have’.

    Overall, very pleased! Since the desserts were included in the wedding package, the logistics were a breeze. We didn’t worry about payment or drop-off timing or anything along those lines. Picking the desserts and purchasing crates for display was the extent of our involvement. We received so many compliments on the cake and couldn’t be happier with how everything panned out. Thanks again to the team over at Modern Pastry Shop -- and to GHCC for offering the package!
