This was the best wedding cake we've ever tasted and it looked absolutely beautiful, too! Melinda was wonderful to work with and the cake came out even better than we ever dreamed. We got eclair and key lime and both flavors were outstanding. A friend also ordered a small birthday cake for another friend in chocolate peanut butter which may have been the very best cake of all! It was wonderful.
From the first time I tasted Melinda's cake at the OBX wedding expo I knew she was my girl! He cakes are absolutely amazing and she is so talented. She made our wedding cake for our wedding at The Sanderling earlier this month and it was devoured in minutes! We received so many compliments on our cake and we can't thank her enough!
Melinda was a dream to work with!! She made the most delicious cake I think we have ever tasted! You can not go wrong with Just Desserts!!!
This cake was everything we expected and more!! We picked the eclair flavor and it was so delicious. It looked beautiful as a part of our wedding and was flawless. Melinda was super sweet and helpful figuring out what we wanted - definitely recommend!!
Holy cow! We had our wedding the past summer in Corolla, NC and had the best cake imaginable. We were going for a tropical, clean look for our wedding so we wanted a very simple cake. We chose a single 'top tier' cake with white frosting and had our florist add some flowers to the top. After going to a tasting, we decided on the key lime cake and I could not be happier with our decision. I'm not a huge sweets person and I devoured it. I highly recommend Just Desserts for creating not only a gorgeous cake for your wedding, but a DELICIOUS ONE! THANK YOU!!!!
WOW!!! It looked fabulous and tasted even better. If I could give Melinda 6 stars we would...it was the best cake we have ever had...and that's the truth. We got the traditional vanilla and chocolate éclair....our group of 65 people ate almost the entire 3 tier cake (it was that good!) Presentation was outstanding as we had a beach theme and the cake was coordinated perfectly to our wedding colors. Melinda was also extremely organized and pleasant to deal with....this added no stress to our day at all. Can't wait to eat our anniversary tier!!
I had a destination wedding in Nags Head in Sept. 2017. My husband and I are from Northern Va. We started planning 2 years in advance and took our family to the cake tasting. When we arrived we had so many different options. When I say no cake that she made was bad I truly mean it. We had trouble decided which cake to choose from. She had everything to plain generic wedding cake to chocolate eclair cake. Even the generic wedding cake was not so generic. We ended up choosing the chocolate eclair cake. I have never in my life tasted a wedding cake so good. She matched the exact design that we wanted and the taste was amazing. Cakes by Just Desserts are to die for. Best cake I have ever had. We can't wait to dig into our anniversary cake topper.
We met Melinda from Just Desserts at the OBXWA Expo in January & ordered our cake on the spot. We were amazed at how delicious the cake samples were, and she had so many beautiful designs from past events on display! We communicated with her a handful of times prior to our wedding, and she was just so very nice, kind, patient and charming! The cake was BEAUTIFUL and AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS; we were quite pleased that there was some leftover for us to eat on the days following our event! With our cake also came a small top tier, frozen, ready for us to place in our freezer and eat on our first anniversary. Thanks Melinda, you're wonderful!! xoxo
Melinda was very tentative and great to work with. The groom's cake was delicious.
Melinda is my favorite vendor to work with. She gave not only the bride samples ,my daughter but also some for me and her dad. She also even delivered the grooms cake under special circumstances. The key lime cake which was the grooms flavor got great reviews from all guest. The wedding cake was delivered and set up promptly and beautiful. My guest not only loved the looks of the cake but truly loved the flavor. Melinda is a real treasure.
So much talent & everything that we wanted for our wedding cake!! It was delicious. Not even a slice was left over after the reception!
This cake was the HIT of my wedding! Mine and my husband's families are BIG cake people, between the both of our families, we have seriously tried it all. EVERY single person at the wedding made a point to tell myself or my husband that it was the BEST cake they've ever had!!!! I ordered the cake for 150 people, but my guest count only ended up being 100- the entire cake still went! Every last piece, gone! We got key lime and traditional with fresh fruit filling. WOW! I mean I just can't say enough about how good this cake was. Just amazing!!! It looked beautiful too!!! She has amazing attention to detail, it was perfect!! My guests are STILL talking about the cake today! And on to Melinda, she is an AMAZING person!!! She is so friendly, and super easy to work with. I went to Melinda completely unsure of what I wanted and she was so patient with me and talked over all of the options. I changed my mind 100 times during our meeting and she happily made the changes. She always answered my emails in a timely manner and she is just so pleasant!!! I am SO happy that I found Melinda!!!! Thank you Melinda for making my wedding experience wonderful!!!
Melinda is the best! Not only did our cake look amazing but it was soooooo delicious. We went with the eclair cake which did not disappoint. On the night of the wedding we received so many compliments on the cake. Every piece was eaten! Thank you for making our dream wedding cake!
"Best wedding cake, ever!" That is what we heard all night and into the next day! After trying a few of Melinda's desserts, our daughter and son-in-law knew exactly what they wanted; the Eclair cake. Not only was it delicious, but Melinda worked with our daughter's vision and created a beautiful, elegant cake. Knowing that Melinda's business is extremely popular, we asked our wedding planner, Brenda Zeigler, to act on our behalf to get the ball rolling and then, when the time was right, Melinda worked with our daughter on the details. If you want a cake that is thoroughly enjoyed, the Eclair cake is it!
The cake that Melinda made for our wedding was the most delicious cake I have ever had in my life!! She made it look exactly like the picture I sent. So many of our guests commented on how it was the best cake they've ever had! It is so taunting having the anniversary layer just sitting in our freezer. My husband and I have debated just going ahead and eating it so many times in the short time we've been married because it is just that good.
Just desserts makes the most delicious wedding cakes. Not only was my cake beautiful but everyone loved it! We ended up having 2 cakes of different flavors and I'm so happy to have worked with Just Desserts. They made the process seamless and a huge hit at the reception.
To say our wedding cake was amazing would be an understatement. It was absolutely beautiful! We chose the eclair cake and everybody is still talks about how delicious it was. Melinda is the best baker on the Outer Banks. We loved having her be a part of our big day!
Melinda's cakes are literally THE BEST CAKES I'VE EVER TASTED (and that's saying something b/c I have a sweet tooth)!! She did such a wonderful job for my husband and I and was very responsive to emails and phone calls. She really wanted us to have a great experience and it was obvious in the love, care, and creativity she put into our cake. I HIGHLY recommend the marble cake with chocolate buttercream frosting inside. It was a crowd favorite!! I can't wait until our one year anniversary so we can finally eat our top tier! Melinda is awesome and so are her desserts!!!
This was not just the best wedding cake we have eve eaten, it was hands down the best cake we have ever eaten. Melinda is amazingly talented and it shows in the beautiful cakes she creates. Unlike some other vendors, she creates cakes that are both stunning to look at and to eat. We were so taken with her flavors that we couldn't pick just one for our wedding cake, and ended up picking two flavors! Both the berry and the eclair flavors were unbelievable. If we didn't live out of state all of our cakes would be made by Melinda. Out of this world delicious, you will not have any regrets!
After taste testing a couple of cakes, it was very clear that Melinda was the best choice for our wedding cake. She was so wonderful to work with for our 9/13/2016 wedding and made sure we got exactly what we envisioned for our cake. She truly is a master of her craft and we have received so many compliments on how beautiful the cake was. We look forward to being able to relive our wedding day on our one year anniversary when we bust the anniversary tier out of the freezer!
By far the BEST cake we have ever had! Melinda was easy to work with and very responsive! She clearly knows what she is doing. The cake was beautiful and tasted great!
Three words: Chocolate Eclair Cake! Our wedding cake was beautiful and the two flavors we chose (rum, and chocolate eclair) were both delicious. The cake was so good that my husband and I ate our anniversary cake a year early but saved a slice for next year.
Our wedding cake not only looked amazing but it tasted delicious! Melinda is very easy to work with, extremely accommodating, and talented beyond belief! Many people told me it was the best wedding cake they've ever eaten and I have to agree. Many times, I have heard couples say that they had a lot of left over cake and ended up throwing it away. While we did have some extra, as we had a dessert bar too, every last piece got eaten in the day or two after the wedding. I can not recommend Melinda enough. In fact, I can't wait to return to the Outer Banks next year and order an anniversary cake from her.
Melinda is an amazing designer, our cake was not only beautiful but delicious. I read her other reviews, we decided on our wedding theme as such and then I contacted her. We never questioned a thing, all reviews and word of mouth just lets you know that you will not be disappointed and we are not. Our guests are still raving about "our cake" and even inquired if she would ship orders?! So yes, that good. Melinda is very caring and considerate, not just a vendor, but a professional to her trade that also cares about what you are trying to purchase as well as to convey any assistance she is able along the journey. Once we discussed my other aspects of the wedding itself to the reception, she assured me I was fine, matter of fact in great hands and she was so very right! We were totally pleased, so very thankful to all our vendors and most now feel like family friends! I highly recommend Just Desserts, OBX for any of your cake needs.
Our wedding was June 2016. Melinda made our cake and it was delicious (just like EVERYONE from OBX said it would be)!! She is professional and very talented. We absolutely enjoyed our cake!
