Jacquie was everything I could have asked for in a home chef: super organized and efficient in the kitchen, creative, talented, fun to work with, and respectful of our space and time. The food was delicious! I would hire her again and/or recommend her to a friend in a heartbeat.

I highly recommend Tiffany Lund Custom Cakes and Desserts!! Tiffany is very personable and professional and her cakes are amazing and reasonably priced. She baked us a dozen cupcakes for us to cake taste for our wedding cake, some with buttercream and some with fondant. We wanted a customer flavor combination and she made us a spectacular cake. As you can see from the pictures the cake was flawless, beautiful and elegant. I had guests come up to me at the wedding and tell me how delicious the cake was! It was so good that we decided to eat the top of the cake the next day with family instead of freezing it for our anniversary next year. I'm going to order another fresh cake from Tiffany next year for our anniversary and for any birthdays and parties in between. Thank you Tiffany for the gorgeous wedding cake! It was spectacular!

This is my first time working with Gaby. I was taking a risk as the cake I ordered was for a dinner party for 12 adult, half of whom are amazing home chefs and two are professionally trained chefs. A friend got a job at Google and so, to surprise him, I ordered this cake (pics) for the party. Gaby was easy AND pleasant to communicate with. She made me a coconut pineapple flavored cake with rainbow layered inside to match the google colors. The crowd, 12 adults and 11 kids went crazy with how beautiful the cake was. Lots and lots of photos later, we finally got to taste it and suddenly the room got quiet. everyone kept shaking their heads with their eyes closed. The cake was so delicious, there was no sound for like 30 seconds. Gaby, I will be hiring you again and again. My friends asked for your contact info. Thank you for such an amazing cake that more than pleased my chef friends and the kids!

I cannot say enough good things about Khadija and James. They took away so much stress from me on my wedding day. They worked so hard the whole evening and allowed me to relax and enjoy the day. If you are getting married and need day of coordinators hire them and you will not be upset.

Honestly, I couldn't have booked a better baker for my wedding. Everyone at the wedding raved about how delicious and fresh our wedding cake was. It was so popular, there were no leftovers! I asked for a naked cake with bavarian cream and fresh strawberries and it was absolutely divine. Mary was also very communicative and incredibly professional. I can't recommend Mary enough. Book Mary for your wedding cake - you won't regret it!

Stephanie did a wonderful job with a special order cake. She was prompt, professional - and makes a wonderful dessert. I would hire her again in a second. You should, too.

Jennifer cleaned my house within an inch of its life. She cleaned it more thoroughly than it has ever been cleaned in the 13 years I’ve lived here. I told her that I was having a party for my daughter’s 16th birthday and she made this place shine. She rearranged furniture, she decorated, she put up lights outside, and she made the most amazingly beautiful cake. I can’t wait to work with her again.

I don't even know where to start! Nick is absolutely AMAZING!!! My husband and I had originally met up with him to talk wedding cake. But then he had stated him and his hubbie had gotten married at the same location where my wedding was located as well (The Vacaville Opera House). He went to tell us how he catered his own wedding and asked if we would be interested in that. After tasting his DELICIOUS white cake with strawberry cream cheese filling (which we went for with our cake) we knew we had to have a tasting. A few weeks later, my father and I had a catering taste test and fell in LOVE! Everything was delicious and full of flavor! We went with tri-tip, veggie pasta, rice and veggies. Since that day he has been there for me none stop. Attending meetings with me, answering any questions I had, and would even call me to calm me down if I has having a bride melt down. Hes passionate in what he does and he does a damn good job too. Shoot, he even came to my rescue the day of my wedding when a few things were missing! He made sure I didn't have a thing to worry about on my big day. I wish I could give him more stars on this rating because he deserves them! I will definitely be going back to Nick if I ever need any kind of dessert or event catering done. Thank you for everything darling!
