    One of the highlights of our wedding

    We are so happy we decided to go with Papa Haydn for our wedding! Ashley designed our cake exactly to our vision and EVEN BETTER than we ever could have expected. We thought the cake was delicious at our tasting, but the wedding day absolutely knocked our socks off. After our tasting, we loved the flavors but wanted more of a berry vibe, and she suggested two flavors—chocolate ganache with fresh raspberries, and lemon curd with huckleberry compote, both frosted with buttercream. She was even able to accommodate our vegan and gluten-free guests with mini cakes on the side. Sooooo good! Thank you guys for making our day perfect!

    Never Ceases To Amaze

    Papa Haydn never ceases to amaze our taste buds! We knew when we got engaged that we had to get our wedding cake through them and they did not disappoint! The flavors were fantastic as well as the presentation!

    Excellent Service!

    Papa Haydn has always been one of our favorites! Our wedding cake was the raspberry poppy seed and it was amazing! Ashley Wilson, the cake designer, was flexible and very accommodating. Great communication on design and pick up. Our cake turned out perfect.
