An Absolute MUST!!!!!!!!
Victoria was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish!! With only 3 weeks to plan for our intimate wedding, Andrew’s Garden in Wheaton kindly recommended Quintessential Cakes. I was told it was a must that I meet with her, and I was so happy we did!!!! At our consultation meeting, she could not have been kinder, sweeter and more hospitable. Her store is beautiful and she was immediately able to capture our vision for our wedding cake. Not only was the cake stunning with so many delicacies, but it tasted out of this world!! We also did her famous macaroons as favors for the table, which were so delicious with charming colors. Thank you Victoria for making our day so special - you are a genius!!!!Sent on 08/14/2020

Great experience! Gorgeous Cake
We had a great experience working with The Quintessential Cake. Victoria was very knowledgeable, up front and honest. She knew we were working to a budget and my initial idea was going to really expensive, so worked with us to come up with a more budget friendly design that still had all the elements I wanted. Our tasting was really fun, beautifully presented, with lots of cake to sample, her delicious Macarons and a selection of Teas and Coffee. She even offered us Champagne! On our Wedding day we could not have been happier with our cake. It was perfect in every way.Sent on 10/25/2020
The Quintessential Cake's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Jen. I am glad to hear you loved your cake and enjoyed the tasting. We do try to make it a special experience for our couples.
