So many compliments on our dessert table!

I couldn't be more happy and impressed about how our dessert table turned out. Even our venue said it was the best table they have ever seen and they have weddings there every weekend 馃ぉ

The best cake ever!

Pastries by design not only professional, accommodating but also make the best tasting fresh cakes. Maria and Alex are the best! Chocolate peanut butter, carrot and they icing are to die for! Great design too!

Alex was so much fun to work with - we had scheduled a last minute tasting (just about 4 weeks before the wedding) because we had been indecisive on our cake. She assisted us right away and gave us her recommendations based on our tastes and wishes for a design. We worked with our florist to coordinate bringing fresh flowers to the reception and her team arranged them beautifully on the cake. The cake was quite possibly the most amazing cake I had ever tasted! Not to mention it was absolutely beautiful. She gladly accommodated our guests who are gluten free, and some who were both gluten and sugar-free with delicious cupcakes. That was something we had a hard time finding elsewhere and we were extremely pleased when she was so happy to assist!
