Raquel was absolutely wonderful and extremely professional. She did our dessert table which consisted of a small wedding cake, mini cheesecakes, mini apple pies, and mini cupcakes. Everything looked and tasted amazing! Raquel is a pleasure to work with and a genius when it comes to designing.

11 Days before our wedding, Raquel had added 200$ to the quote. My response of course was, "WHAT"!!!!!
Her response to my, “WHAT”, was her producing a hand written quote she wrote in pencil, and at some point later adding (written in pen at the bottom) extra charges. When I questioned her about it, she came back and tried to defend it, not knowing that I still had a copy of her quote she gave me. I then scanned the quote and sent it back to her demanding to know why she was trying to rip my mom off; she then stated that she was sorry we couldn't agree on the terms and was sending back my mom's deposit. At this point we were at 9 days until my wedding.
At first my mom was furious at me, thinking I was being bridezilla (everyone that knows me, knows I am not that girl, however, I can be very direct!), when she found out that I was speaking the truth (providing the evidence) she too, was furious.
Besides Raquel being unprofessional in our dealings with her, living in the middle of nowhere and working out of her home, she does not produce her own fillings, in our experience she did not make most of the decorations for the cake (at least in our dealings) and the actual cake is not moist or remarkable at all. The money you think you will save will be added on at the end.
9 days before our wedding, we finally called a professional, and he came to the rescue. We landed up paying more for a smaller cake (still less than her final invoice by about 150$), finding out from him that the cake that she convinced us to add another layer to, was enough to feed 200 people before the additional layer was added for my wedding of 125.
In any event, in my Cinderella story, our wedding turned out flawless, beautiful, no other issues or problems, but it is my opinion, if you want to avoid this unnecessary stress for your wedding, use a professional. Cutting corners & using pop up vendors such as Raquel is a stressful and dangerous way to try to save money. Happy Wedding Peeps!
