Beautiful and delicious!!!!
We loved our cake and the cupcakes were so beautiful. We went with four cupcake flavors. Sharon decorated the cupcakes to reflect their flavor. Not only were the cupcakes and the cake beautiful but they were delicious. Thank you Cake Courtesan!!!!Sent on 01/07/2019

Delicious Cake and Great Service
Our guests devoured the wedding cake and called the next day to ask if we had leftovers. In addition, the cake was beautiful!! We were unsure of what cake design we wanted and the owner sat with us, asked questions, and sketched our vision as she listened. The end result was a cake that complemented our wedding theme. I would highly recommend The Cake CourtesanSent on 08/07/2019

Sharon and Fay are a dynamite team. Excellent service, easy process, and very high quality product. I found the pricing reasonable and all that Sharon did within my budget far exceeded my expectations. I had shopped around a little but didn't want to belabor the selection process. I was satisfied with the first person I did a tasting with, but my wedding planner suggested that I at least do a tasting with her recommendation, The Cake Courtesan, and their cakes absolutely blew me and my husband away! It was so hard to choose a flavor because they were all so delicious. The other issue is I'm not really a cake person but I thought it was necessary since I was getting married and all... for that reason, I wasn't sure what I wanted so I gave Sharon some very basic guidelines. She created a GORGEOUS marble design using my wedding colors. The end product was classy, elegant, and DELICIOUS. My only gripe is that after the cake cutting ceremony my husband and I somehow missed getting an actual slice of cake to enjoy (our fault for dancing all night I guess). But the guests who got a slice loved it. I'm trying to come up with another fancy occasion to plan so I can come back!Sent on 05/21/2018
