My cake was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and the flavors were scrumptious. I'm not a big fan of cake to begin with but I was excited to see the cake on display once I arrived at the reception venue. Fresh ingredients and perfectly blended flavors made for the perfect dessert. Our event took place in the Hudson Valley and Heather brought the cake up from NYC on time and flawless. There is no better blending of taste and aesthetic.

Our wedding cake was so beautiful and exactly what we wanted in terms of design. Heather herself took her time to do tasting with us and we love ALL her cake flavors. We chose 2 flavors - carrot cake & strawberry shortcake. The carrot cake was so yummy i ate it for breakfast next day! As for the vanilla cake with strawberry we were a bit disappointed to hear some of our guests said it was a bit dry. Overall , the cake was picture perfect.

Heather was wonderful to work with! The cake she designed and created for my daughter's Sweet 16 was absolutely magnificent. The cake fit the theme of the party perfectly. The chocolate cake and banana filling was just as perfect. My guests are still talking about how beautiful and delicious the cake was. I highly recommend Heather and look forward to working with her again in the future.

I worked directly with the owner of company and was able to directly exchange every detail I wanted in the cake. Her expertise and guidance alongwith the particulars I wanted for the cake created made the day even more special. The cake has been talked about by all who attended this event. Never had a cake with such richness and flavor ever ever ever.......I look forward to the next time I can order a cake from them just to get another taste.
