COVID wedding cake
I met Victoria at our venues vendor event, and we were able to try her cupcakes - and they were some of the best cupcakes we have ever had. Fast forward a year, and our big, dream wedding in May was affected by COVID-19. We decided to move forward with a small intimate ceremony with family so I reached out to Victoria, remembering how delicious her samples were, to see how she could help us. Victoria was not only extremely responsive, but she walked us through everything and set up a virtual meeting to start thinking about designs and flavors. From explaining my vision and colors of our original day, she drew up a sketch for a cake that was beautiful. Due to COVID, we also could not have a tasting so we described what flavors we enjoyed and she gave us a few suggestions. We decided to go with a 2-tier vanilla cake, white chocolate buttercream and raspberry preserves along with some mini cupcakes. When I picked up the cake it was absolutely beautiful! The detail that went into the design was incredible and everything, if not more, than what I imagined. And the most important part - it was so delicious. Her meringue buttercream is to die for. Everyone was raving about the cake and said it was one of the best wedding cakes they have had. We will absolutely use Victoria and quintessential cake in the futureSent on 07/08/2020

The quintessential cake designed my wedding cake and executed on flavors way beyond my expectations. The cakes were delivered timely and looked as beautiful as ever. The chocolate was moist with the dulce leche sauce as a strong compliment.....the red velvet was everything the southern states would boldly claim as their own. As for the service....prompt, professional, responsive, personable, and affordable. Victoria's work and craftsmanship spoke volumes as all my guests including those on diets could not resist not taking a bite and asking for more. Looking forward to my one year anniversary to obtain another cake from Victoria. My theme was Art Deco and she can totally rock it out.Sent on 06/20/2019

Highly, highly recommend
We had the most beautiful (and delicious) wedding cake I have ever seen, it was a work of art! Victoria is extremely talented! She took all the inspiration & design for our wedding and designed us a truly amazing masterpiece! She is easy to communicate and work with. If you have a budget she will work with you on it & respect it. We can't say enough good things about our experience.Sent on 06/21/2019
