Most Amazing Cake
We had Rachel make our wedding cake 06/08/2019 and we could not have been happier with how it turned out. Not only was it stunning but it tasted soooo good. We still have guests coming up to us telling us how much they loved it! We have each tier a different flavor and with each one I was In love. We loved our cake so much that when we got back from our honeymoon we had requesting small cakes of each flavor to enjoy for the next few weeks! She is so easy to work with and put my vision to life. I would not think twice and will continue to have get cakes from her!!Sent on 06/18/2019

Rachel Bailey is amazing.
My cake and cupcakes were absolutely delicious. There was hardly any cake left and no cupcakes by the end of the reception! I was amazed by the design of the cake! I can't say enough amazing things about this experience! I want to have another party just for the cake :)Sent on 07/03/2019

BEST cake ever!
We first discovered Rachel at the Forever Bridal bridal show. My fiance and mother tasted her cakes and insisted that we hire her immediately. For my fiance to say he loves someone’s cakes is a big deal because he does not like cake at all. By the end of the Bridal show he told me that the only cake he was willing to eat on the day of our wedding was Rachel Bailey’s cake, and i am talking even the cake smash because before we found Rachel Bailey’s cakes he was pretty hesitant to even do the cake smash. She was very professional and easy to work with, and provided a tasting of all of her flavors (which were all delicious). She worked with our needs and made it easy to decide on the style, amount, and flavor of cake. We ended up doing a cake and cupcakes because we honestly couldn’t decide on our favorite flavor. We did one 3 tier cake and a couple of dozen cupcakes with didn’t flavors and this order did not faze her one bit. She followed up about a month out to make sure we did not want to change anything. On the day of, the cake was delivered without any issues and everyone loved the way it tasted. She even provides a complimentary one year anniversary cake so we don’t have to worry about freezing it or having to eat old cake! I would highly recommend Rachel Bailey Cakes to anyone getting married!Sent on 06/07/2019
