    The perfect wedding dessert table

    From cakes, to pies, to cookies, brownies and more - our dessert table had it all...and it was all DELICIOUS! Originally we thought we would only have a few items on the table, but after taste testing at Paradox, we wanted everything! Not only was everything delicious, it was set up beautifully! Our guests are still talking about the cakes and treats a month later! While everything was delicious, the best part of hiring Paradox was dealing with Jenny! She made the whole process easy and fun. We do not live near Charlottesville anymore, but the next time we visit, Paradox will be our first stop.

    Best Pies Ever!!!

    The one review we’ve heard the most from all of our wedding guests were that they LOVED our mini pies! Jenny and her team went above and beyond to deliver an array of flavorful pies, and a beautiful scrumptious wedding cake as well! I would recommend her company to everyone I know!

    Paradox Pastry's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Tori. And all I have to say is... those peanut butter chocolate pies, though!!! (and I don't even like peanut butter. YUM!)

Favorite pie maker in all the land. While Jenny certainly makes a wonderful cake (ahem, guiness stout or apple spice cake, can't decide my favorite, today) I love her pie crust...and anything she puts inside it. They even make little pie poppers, hand pies and tarts. So delicious!
