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

Working with Rachel was great experience start to finish! She listened to what we wanted to made our dream a cake reality. She made my bridal shower cake, my groom's cake and my wedding cake not only look amazing but her flavors are out of this world. I know just the person for all of my cake needs!Sent on 05/05/2019

Delicious cake, Great Value
Rachel made the most amazing cake! It was white chocolate raspberry and peach alternating layers. The only thing I should note is that you need to bring something to store leftover cake!Sent on 11/07/2018
