Most beautiful wedding cake

We thank the French gourmet bakery and Trang for the most beautiful and extremely tasty wedding cake they catered for us. Trang was very helpful, patient and kind and helped make our special day even more special! I initially went back and forth several times about selecting my cake but Trang was so patient with me and helped me make the perfect selection. Thank you to the entire team for the amazing job they did for our big day.

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!

It was Perfect!

The French Gourmet was so easy to work with, and our cake came out beautiful! They also provided small desserts for our guests which were just delicious. Trang was absolute delight to work with, she was so patient with me as we had to switch our selections several times and she was most accommodating which is so nice to have throughout the planning process. You will not regret working with this vendor, they were just the best!
