Incredible Desserts    posted 11/4/2013

I did a dessert spread/table instead of a cake and Katie did an incredible job. Not only was everything delicious but it looked absolutely amazing. She does a beautiful job. Highly recommended!

lackluster    posted 4/1/2013

I have to say, if you'd asked me six months ago what rating I would give this place, I think I would have told you four or five stars. So what happened? We came for a tasting in August for my march wedding. The tasting was delicious - I went with three flavors of French macaroons, a bottom layer rum cake and top layer white cake with raspberry and custard filing. They give you a small discount on the total price if you pay in full up front. So we did. I walked them through exactly the designs I wanted on my cake and was told no problem, no extra charge.

About a month before my wedding my coordinator started trying to lock down a delivery time. No response. I started calling. No response. They just wouldn't return our phone calls. I finally got my order confirmed the Tuesday before my wedding, so I figured all was well. When my mom dropped off the design elements, the woman working starting complaining that she didn't realize how much work it would be, blah blah blah. Luckily my mom got out of there before the woman could shake my mom down for more money.

Then, wedding day. I had cupcakes done by Sugar Cat which were so amazing and beautiful and the cake, which I was so looking forward to, was lackluster. They just didn't honor my vision with the design elements I supplied.

So even though the cake tasted fine, if I was doing this again I would skip the cake or have someone else do it. I wouldn't recommend this place to any of my other 8 friends who are getting married this year... weddings are hard enough and stressful enough - a bride should pick someone easy to work with who she feels she can trust, and this place just doesn't fit that bill.

Pretty and delicious!    posted 8/24/2012

Katie was the sweetest person to work with! We described what we wanted and she designed it exactly as we asked. The cake tasting was wonderful and we went with a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and whole raspberries because we love fruit topped with a whipped cream frosting. It was perfect and I would definitely work with her again!
