Stunning Unique Cake

Victoria was such a pleasure to work with. I could not decide on my design for such a long time, she really helped us to narrow down what we wanted and we ended up with a stunning cake! She also had amazing flavors to choose from and puree's that we included with our buttercream filling between the layers. I am a wedding planner myself and I highly recommend Quintessential Cake.
