    If you want a fabulous tasting cake, this is the place to go! Sure, it's nice if your cake looks pretty, but if it's dry and the flavors are over complicated, no one will eat it and whats the point of it being cake? I ordered a basic cake (the strawberry bagatelle) that was absolutely scrumptious - there was no cake left!

    Delicious wedding cake

    My husband loves cheesecake so for our wedding I thought a cheesecake wedding cake would be perfect. I had one once before at a wedding and thought it was a nice change. When I started the search for a baker I was surprised with how many did not offer that, or didn't want to try. The French Gourmet was the only baker I found that said they could make me what I wanted and Trang did a fantastic job at helping me to get exactly that. We had a beautiful and delicious 3 tiered traditional cheesecake with vanilla cake and raspberry purée. Thank you Trang for your responses to my countless emails, arranging the samples, and customizing our wedding cake. I had multiple guests ask where we got the cake from and how it was the best cake they ever had :) Thank you bakers at French Gourmet!

    A perfect cake!

    Our cake was exactly what we asked for! Trang was so easy to work with and so knowledgable for any questions we had. Our cake was 3 layers, 2 flavors, and a huge hit! All our friends and family said how much they enjoyed it.
