I was BLOWN AWAY by the Happy Tart. For an INCREDIBLY REASONABLE PRICE (too reasonable...) I got an amazing array of cupcakes all decorated for different princesses. They were almond with rose buttercream, chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin spice, and apple spice. The cake was.... well... I was emotional anyway, but I cried just seeing it. It was trussed up like the entrance to the Secret Garden. EVERYTHING was delicious... and everyone could eat it, because a lot of my cousins have trouble with gluten so it was gluten free.
Guess who knew it was gluten free? Me because I ordered it, and the people who couldn't normally have cake... the taste was RIDICULOUS. I was too excited to eat anything except my cupcake that was saved for me.
This is the most wonderful, magical place... because even more important than the cake, the bakers (and Emma, especially) worked tirelessly to make my vision come true beyond my wildest dreams.
thank you thank you thank you Happy Tart, for making my wedding a fantasy.

Best GF cake of all time
We got a small wedding cake from the Happy Tart -- just something for my husband and I to cut and eat -- and it surpassed all expectations! Was delicious, beautifully decorated, and affordable! Would highly recommend.
