Delicious!!

Patty was so great to work with! My now husband and I decided to do cupcakes with a small single-tier cake for ourselves. Patty walked us through everything, including the recommended number of cupcakes needed for our guest count. I never got the pleasure of meeting her in person, but my day of coordinator was beyond pleased with everything. Including that the cupcakes looked so amazing she was drooling! I gave permission for her to steal one, and the next message I received was "money VERY well spent!!!!". This was the sentiment shared by quite literally everyone, including us! Patty, everything looked and tasted AMAZING! If you ever come to the Chicago area, PLEASE bring cupcakes! Thank you for everything!!!!!!

Everything is delicious!

I really don’t think anything I say will do Patrice justice, but I’ll try!
Patrice is absolutely incredible. We opted to go with a dessert bar and very single thing we ordered was decadent! Our wedding cake was delicious and perfect, and people we went CRAZY over her oatmeal cream pies!
Patrice makes the planning process SO easy! I planned my wedding from afar and she was excellent to work with even with a 6 hour time difference. She guided me to choose an appropriate amount of items tailored to my wedding size and helped by making great suggestions. We did meet in person for a cake tasting (which were the most delicious cakes I’ve ever had, it is SO hard to choose from all her incredible flavors!) but for the rest of the planning we met virtually and planning was flawless.
On the day of the wedding she came exactly on time and set up my dessert bar beautifully, and let me know where all the extra were stored so we could refill the display or take things home. She also put together special bride and groom boxes to ensure my husband and I would get a chance to have one of everything! Patrice is one of the warmest and nicest people I’ve ever met and I’m so happy we decided to have her bake for our wedding! My entire guest list couldn’t believe how good every single dessert was!
The prices were also very affordable! We had about 65 people and paid about $1200 (for everything!), we had WAY TOO MUCH (the pictures I posted don’t show the boxes and boxes of extras), because I didn’t listen to Patrice and I over ordered, bottom line - listen to Patrice and her suggestions/guidance she will not steer you wrong! On the bright side, I was able to send folks home with delicious desserts and we got to enjoy them for days after the wedding :)

BEST Cake by the BEST Person!

By far the best wedding cake that you will ever taste in your life, created by one of the best people you will ever meet. Patrice is pure joy, compassion, and magic. As someone who is obsessed with dessert, the wedding cake was high on our priority list. When we tasted a Patty Bakes cake – we knew there was no going back. She was the one. She was invested in every stage of our process – ensuring that we were able to taste everything, talking through our vision, and even incorporating our cat into the wedding cake! By the end of our first conversation, I felt like I knew her all my life, and I knew we were in good hands. We trusted her to create a cake that aligned with our wedding vision, and when we saw it for the first time, I got weak in the knees. She captured our personality into a wedding cake. We did not think that was possible. Our guests raved about the cake all night (Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel, Banana Nutella, and Mint Chocolate Chip). To be fair, they’re still raving about it…Thank you SOOO much for going above and beyond to make our wedding beautiful! We love you!!
