So beautiful and delicious
Oh my goodness!! Lara at my friends bakery is amazing! She is so friendly, very professional, and clearly talented. From our tasting, to the big day, she was a pleasure to work with. First of all, we received multiple compliments on the design and taste of the cake. People who don’t even like cake were complimenting it. Lara guided our decision marking and allowed us to have 3 different flavors for our 3 tier cake. The cake was delivered on time, and in perfect condition. We cannot wait to break into our cake again on our one year anniversary. I would recommend Lara to anyone and everyone!Sent on 09/27/2019

Best Wedding Desserts Ever
Lara is awesome! We didn't want a traditional wedding cake and were looking for something personal to our and our families' tastes. We decided we wanted a bunch of smaller differing desserts, something that our guests could take home as favors. Lara absolutely knocked this out of the park! She encouraged us to be ourselves and pick the desserts we like best. We went with two different kinds of cookies, brownies, two kinds of mini pies, and cider doughnuts. Everything was delicious and amazingly fresh and flew off the dessert table. We're from RI and would seriously consider paying Lara another visit just to grab more desserts for parties at home. We'd absolutely recommend her to anyone!Sent on 09/04/2019

Delicious and Beautiful
I know many great bakeries around that would be able to do my wedding cake, but I chose My Friend's Bakery. The reason was because she uses Italian meringue buttercream, which is what I prefer. Also, cake tasting was free. I personally am a professional pastry chef, so I was doubting Lara at first. I came in for the tasting with my mother-in-law, who at the time just came from Indonesia, so her palate was still Indonesian palate (most of my guests were Indonesians). We both liked the cake so much. It was very moist and delicious. The buttercream was what I was looking for, so we decided to go with it. On the day of my reception, I could ask for a better cake! All of my guests loved it! The cake was beautiful, better than what I envisioned. I will definitely order another cake from Lara. Highly recommended!Sent on 11/20/2018
