Kind and Talented Baker!

Lara helped pull together a delicious and beautiful dessert table for us. She was helpful and kind every step of the way, pulling together a sampler box for us to try various treats, communicating in a timely and effective manner, and providing guidance on making selections based on guest dietary restrictions and lack of refrigeration on site. Her desserts not only taste good but are beautiful and she was able to provide rentals for the dessert display and set them up at our venue on our wedding date.

Delicious cupcakes!!

Accommodated a fairly large order on short notice. Had a great selection of cupcakes both with and without filing. Was able to make gluten free cupcakes that were amazing as well! All around great experience. Highly recommend

Sooooo good!

I hired My Friend's Bakery for my wedding on 11/5/22. Lara is so receptive to your budget and any ideas you have. I had a two-layer cake, one pumpkin with cream cheese frosting, and one vanilla with maple buttercream. I got SO MANY compliments on how delicious and moist the cake was. I plan on having her make a lot of anniversary cakes for me in the future :)
