    Incredible wedding cake!!

    50/Fifty made our three-tiered wedding cake this past weekend, along with sheet cakes to cut and serve to all of our guests. Due to the pandemic and me and my husband living 6 hours from our venue/vendors, we were not going to be able to make a trip to the area for a cake tasting. This was no problem for Mandy, who boxed up all of our chosen cakes/fillings/icings in dry ice and ice packs, and overnighted it to us to do an at-home tasting! From the start she was so professional and easy to work with, and her cakes were absolutely DELICIOUS. I wish I had more leftovers, but all of our guests enjoyed it way too much! :D Thank you 50/Fifty!!

    Something to write home about!

    I cannot recommend 50 / Fifty enough! I worked with Mandy who was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process; we decided to go with mini desserts and a small cutting cake for our wedding at Highland Brewing in Asheville, NC in May of 2021.

    Since we don't live in Asheville, I was a little hesitant to pick out desserts without tasting them first, but in hindsight I don't think we could have gone wrong. We went with an assortment of bars, macaroons, mini cupcakes, and tarts... everything was so delicious and beautifully arranged!

    They were a huge hit with our guests, so much that people started crowding the dessert table before the "official" dessert time, and our wedding cake was possibly one of the best pieces of carrot cake I've ever had! A big THANK YOU to Mandy and the team at 50/Fifty for giving our guests something to rave about!

    Yummy cake!

    50/fifty was a pleasure to work with! We had a lot of funny with our tasting as we got to completely create the cake we wanted. It was fun to see our cake vision come to life on our big day. The cake tasted amazing and was designed so well. Would highly recommend!

    Excellent Service

    As my mother and I (Bride) were looking for wedding dessert options, Mandy (owner) had posted on her instagram beautiful and impressive wedding cakes that we thought looked amazing. We decided to scheudle an initial tasting. Mandy was clear, direct and detailed in what cake, filling, and icing flavors were available as we chose the limited amount for the initial consultation. When my mom and I arrived at the tasting, Mandy had already neatly placed our requested flavors (cake, filling, etc) on the table and all her other offered flavors. We had a great conversation with her as we discussed cake sizes, pricing, and flavor combinations. She was so kind and thoughtful!

    We decided on almond cake with nutella whipped filling, and lemon cake with raspberry whipped filling (which I still dream about). Mandy was responsive and organized with the billing, my vision for the wedding cake design and my guests LOVED the flavors!!

    If you want a professional, bubbly, detailed, and organized cake vendor, Mandy is your lady!!!

    We were so lucky to have found Mandy and we would recommend her to anyone!

    Mandy was incredible! From our first meeting, I knew she was going to be extremely helpful. She messaged me back almost immediately and helped us schedule a tasting really quickly. She was one of the first vendors we booked and she was extremely flexible with our change in guest count due to Covid. She answered all our questions promptly and gave us detailed answers every time! We had a small cake and mini desserts that Mandy recommended and they were delicious! We were so lucky to have found Mandy and we would recommend her to anyone!

    Most Delicous Cake I've Ever Had!

    Mandy is AMAZING to work with! The most delicious cakes I have ever had. She made a custom cake of my husband's mountain bike and did an incredible job. Definitely trust her with all our dessert needs!

    Delicious and beautiful!

    50/Fifty came highly recommended by our wedding planner and venue and we are so happy and thankful that we trusted them to lead us in the right direction when it came to dessert! Mandy was very responsive to our emails and questions about flavor combinations. 50/Fifty also makes gluten free cake, a huge plus for us to make sure that the FOB could enjoy cake! The cake and cupcakes were beautiful and so delicious! If we lived closer we would use Mandy and her team to celebrate every occasion! Thank you for being part of our day and making it delicious!

    Awesome!!!

    We weren't originally planning to have cake at our June 2020 wedding, but Covid messed up our alternative dessert plans. Mandy was very responsive and set up a tasting with very little notice. The tasting was so awesome that we went from 0 cakes to 3 cakes plus some baked goods! She was even able to create our dog, Cooper, for the grooms' rehearsal dinner cake! 10/10 would recommend

    Mandy and her crew are absolutely amazing. They made the most beautiful and delicious cake for our wedding. Our guests were thoroughly impressed. Mandy was also wonderful to work with in the planning process. She is completely down to earth, and she gave us exactly what we wanted. We would choose her again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend.

    So amazing!

    We had a two tier vegan cake. One layer was lemon cake with a raspberry compote and lemon butter cream. The other layer was hazelnut cake with a Nutella cream cheese. We also had chocolate chip cookies, white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and peanut butter cookies. Everything was AMAZING! She was so easy to work with as well.

    Sweet Tooth Approved!!

    Mandy is the absolute best!! When we initially connected, Mandy was so helpful - as we were so up in the air as to what we wanted to offer for desserts! (We knew we wanted to do something other than cake alone!) Mandy gave great insight and advice for us to choose from.

    When it came time to do the tasting - we wanted ALL of the options! Mandy is extremely talented and has a true gift!! Mandy has really nailed the tasting consultation, and is able to customize to you and your day!

    Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful the dessert table and cake looked, and more importantly - how DELICIOUS everything tasted! Mandy, there are not enough words to thank you for everything you did for us to make our big day so perfect!!

    Delicious!

    Mandy at 50/Fifty was a pleasure to work with! We went with a selection of mini desserts and a small cake - the cake was not only delicious but also beautiful, and we loved being able to offer variety with the mini desserts. Everything was delicious and reasonable priced. The tasting before was very helpful too. Very happy with our choice!

    Simply Perfection

    Our wedding cake was amazing! In preparation for our wedding cake we knew that we wanted something that tasted amazing and was affordable. 50/Fifty delivered that and more! We selected three different flavors to be served as there were were so many combinations that tasted amazing. Each cake was moist and the icing was the perfect balance of sweet and flavorful.

    Delicious!

    My husband doesn't even like cake, and at the tasting with 50/Fifty we took home a goodie bag because he hadn't had enough! We did a Champagne flavored cake with raspberry compote. Absolutely delicious! The design was exactly what we envisioned too!!

    Absolutely Delicious

    Delicious! They did wonderful work. We got to try so many combinations of cakes and frostings/fillings that it might have taken longer to decide on the flavors than to actually sampling them. We only had a small 2-tier cake as we had other desserts for our guests that it didn’t them long to set the cake up and put the design we wanted on the top tier during the day of set up. Definitely thinking of going back to them for an anniversary cake at some point.

    Amazing Design and Taste

    Mandy created our wedding cake and desert bar. We found a cake design online we liked for our wedding cake that was lego themed and showed a picture to her. Mandy recreated it and it turned out better than I could have imagined. We absolutely loved it. We also had a desert bar with a variety of pastries, macarons and bars. Everyone loved all of the deserts and everything was gone within an hour.

    I am thinking of placing an order just for me on my next trip. Mandy is great and everything looked and tasted delicious.

    Beautiful tasty desserts and wonderful to work with!

    Mandy is an absolute pleasure to work with and her desserts are so tasty and very reasonably priced! 50fifty provided a stunning dessert table for our wedding and we were so appreciative of the variety in the offerings. We had a tiered wedding cake, chocolate mousse cups. tarts, cupcakes, lemon bars, and more. We even had gluten free and vegan options to accommodate the dietary restrictions of our guests. Our guests were raving about how yummy everything was! Mandy's desserts are also aesthetically beautiful and the way she showcased them at our wedding, on gorgeous platters with handwritten labels, was very artistic. Our friend who loves to bake, brought some homemade cupcakes that Mandy incorporated into our dessert table and brought her own displays and signs for. Thank you Mandy for filling the tummies our guests with scrumptious dessert and be an absolute joy to work with!
