    Wonderful experience with great tasting cake!

    I could not say enough good things about Nancy and our experience with Top Tier Cakery! We had a great time at the cake tasting and felt like Nancy did a great job of guiding us through the process. We ordered a two-tier cake with lavender ombre and 100 cupcakes (5 different flavors). My husband had a very specific flavor that he wanted (dark chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting) and Nancy made sure to put a cupcake directly on our sweetheart table so that he got his cake! Nancy was very thoughtful throughout the whole process and made sure everything was perfect! She really knows her cake and it showed :) We left the venue with very little leftovers because everyone loved the cake so much!

    Perfection!

    We can’t say enough positive things about Nancy from Top Tier and the incredible care and attention to detail she put into our wedding cake. From the very beginning, it was easy to see the unmatchable experience, skill, and dedication she brings to everything she touches. The hardest part about the process was actually choosing what we want because she is willing to make absolutely anything you envision, and you KNOW she is going to totally knock whatever you throw her way out of the park. Also, every single cake and filling we tasted, we loved…so it was extremely difficult to whittle it down to three flavor combinations (due to our small wedding size). On top of everything, she made a succulent for our cake that was unbelievably realistic. Her workmanship is absolutely outstanding, and she makes the most memorable cakes. If you want a flawlessly beautiful and delicious treat, go to Top Tier Cakery!

    Top Tier Cakery's reply:

    Thanks Britt. It was a pleasure working with you and bringing your vision to life, and I, too, loved the way the succulent turned out!

Nancy is absolutely delightful to work with and her cake artistry is some of the best I've ever seen, especially with sugar flowers and fondant. She welcomes our creative ideas and makes them even better, both with delicious cake flavor requests and with design. She is very professional and as a planner who has worked with her on multiple events, I have the highest confidence in her work!
