Vanessa made the cake for our wedding on a very short deadline and it was amazing! It looked beautiful and it tasted even better! She was so great to work with - we wanted flowers on the outside of the cake so she arrived early (after coordinating with our florist) to place them before the ceremony began! HIGHLY recommend!!

Thank you for being amazing!
Would absolutely recommend and will work with Vanessa and her team at the Chocolate Rose! They exceeded our expectations and created the most delicious and beautiful cake I have ever seen! It was so flavorful, our guest devoured and said nothing but amazing things!

Great work, awesome detail!!!
Vanessa was so easy to work with she walked me through all three flavors I picked. I had a speciality gluten free cake she made it taste like it wasn't gluten free at all. She can do different flavors for each layer as well. The cake turned out great!! I highly recommend the Chocolate Rose to any bride/ groom to be!!!
Vanessa at The Chocolate Rose has an exceptional eye for detail. Product freshness and client satisfaction are priority #1. She's kind, easy to talk to, and you can see how excited she is to create art from flour and sugar. Her heart goes into each and every cake and dessert I've ever seen her create. She's thinks out and plans the entire visual display from the way the table is dressed to the smallest details surrounding your cake making it so much more than you could ever imagine a cake to be. The Chocolate Rose isn't just a bakery, it's an experience.
Wonderful, talented and creative team, we love working with The Chocolate Rose! They listen to your vision and execute your confections with perfection!!
I was first exposed to Vanessa's beautiful work via social media so when one of my college roommates/close friends got engaged, I immediately had her in mind as a potential dessert vendor for the bridal shower I was planning for March 2015. She was responsive, reasonably priced, and knowledgeable, providing great recommendations for a 2-tier Chanel-themed cake. The bridal shower team was immediately sold by her professionalism! Vanessa also created diamond-cut texture cupcakes with three-dimensional Chanel items (i.e., purse, shoes, necklace, logo, etc.) as toppers that truly brought my vision to life. Her attention to detail and technique are superb, and the colors matched the shower's coral, black, and white theme perfectly. Not only do her desserts look good in photos (guests were taking pictures of her work at the event) and in person, but they taste even better! Delivery was on time, and the shower was complete thanks to The Chocolate Rose. I unequivocally offer Vanessa my highest recommendation and can't wait to work with her again in the near future!
