Mrs. Harrison, who is the owner did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. She's not a huge operation, but she's very personable and she takes great care of her clients. Her cakes are absolutely delicious and moist. I can't even tell you how many people asked me who baked our cake for our wedding. She's very professional and precise and is willing to work with you on different designs that are cost effective. I would definitely use her services again!
