    The Sugar Flowers Of Your Dreams

    Betsy and her Nine Cakes team are absolutely wonderful, and produced the wedding cake of our dreams for our June 2022 wedding. Betsy came highly recommended by our photographer, though we were already in love with her designs from seeing her work on Instagram and other wedding websites. Betsy's sugar flowers are UNREAL and unlike anything I've ever seen before. Betsy worked with us personally to discuss elements of the design and what we liked from her previous work; our only disappointment was not getting to do an in person cake tasting due to COVID! Nine Cakes sent us the cutest tasting box and we were thrilled to make a night out of cake tasting with my parents. We knew her cakes tasted great from our tasting box (sent perfectly packaged to our home!), but our venue coordinator told us guests were saying it was the best wedding cake they've ever had AND they were going back for seconds! For a family that loves dessert and a beautiful wedding cake, Betsy knocked it out of the park.

    The ultimate wedding cake

    Nine Cakes created the most stunning (and delicious) cake for our recent wedding. Originally, we were torn on whether to use real flowers or sugar flowers on the cake, and once we saw Nine Cakes, we were sold- and so happy with our decision! Apparently guests were placing bets on whether the flowers were real or not - the cake was that magical and fit our decor beautifully! As gorgeous as the cake was it was just as delicious. We brought the top home with the intention of freezing it but just couldn't help ourselves and ended up digging in haha. Many people went back for seconds. We ordered two flavors for the different layers- almond and vanilla cardamom. But every flavor we tried during our tasting was a winner.

    Wedding Cake Cravings Beyond The Wedding

    We absolutely LOVED our wedding cake from Nine Cakes. I was so happy that our venue packed our top tier so that we could indulge the morning after. We have also frozen a slice to share on our anniversary. We had a marble cake with two layers of strawberries and buttercream and a middle layer of buttercream and chocolate pearls. We worked with Haley and she was incredibly understanding when our original wedding was cancelled with 8 days notice due to covid. We changed up our design and made it simpler due to the smaller guest count. Our cake did not have any fondant which we loved - it made it so much easier when we did our cake cutting. It was also more fun to smear a little frosting on my husband's face that way. All in all, I wish their Hudson storefront could open a location in Manhattan so that we could stop in to pick up a little something when we are feeling nostalgic towards our wedding. Thank you Haley and team for baking our wedding cake. It was perfect.
