    Palmer’s Bakery Wedding Cake

    I was unsure what I wanted, but with Palmers guidance, I truly had the wedding cake of my dreams! Melissa and her staff are wonderful to work with and very responsive to any and all requests. Picking the cake was the easiest part of wedding planning! Will absolutely be going to Palmers for any special occasion cake in the future. Also, friends and family still talk about how delicious it was, and our wedding was three months ago!

    We were tipped off to Palmer's by our stationer, and we are so happy she gave us this recommendation to try Palmer's for our wedding cake. We wanted carrot cake with cream cheese filling and all of the local bakeries we tried did not meet our standards. Palmer's knocked it out of the park. First, the cake was beautiful, and they decorated the cake exactly as we requested with flowers from their florist which helped to simplify things. Second, the cake tasted incredible. All of our guests were raving about how incredible the cake tasted. It was so moist and the cream cheese filling was delicious! We are thrilled to have found Palmer's and will be certainly making this our new place for cakes for all occasions!
