Chef Rocco was very professional to work with, came up with a creative menu suggestions and most importantly, the food he made and served was delicious. He even made an awesome carrot cake for dessert! In addition, there was no mess to clean up afterwards. Thank you Chef Rocco!

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.

Gaby was great! I put in an order for a wedding cake for tomorrow because Thumbtack didn't have a birthday cake option, and didn't have same day option, but I clearly stated "need a birthday cake TODAY." (previously set up deal fell through). She came through with flying colors! She did it for a great price and drove to the party and delivered the cake herself, without charging a delivery fee. I tipped her extra for that and you will want to do the same. Annoying that Thumbtack doesn't allow for picture upload on reviews.

I used Three Sisters Decorations for my friend's Bridal Shower's desert table. My friend's wedding theme was "pastel" which is fairly vague. We were also on a budget so I was nervous about how it would turn out. I heard great things about Three Sisters Decorations so I reached out to them for the desert table. Three Sisters Decorations gave us a HUGE discount, worked with our budget and everything turned out to be quite fantastic! They provided all of the beautiful decorations, tasty treats, and set up. Emmie came herself to set everything up, make sure everything was perfect. The guests loved it too. It provided a sophisticated setup for our bridal shower. I would definitely use them again for future parties and events.

I just had a lovely Christmas dinner party at our home for 10 couples. Nicolas cooked for us and it was amazing. He spent the entire afternoon at our home preparing dinner while we were decorating and putting the final touches on things. It was as if an old friend was in town helping us prepare, we listened to music, sang and laughed. When our guests arrived they were wow'd at the thought of having a chef come and cook. This was our first time at having someone come into our home and prepare a meal and we would definately do this again. Nicolas was spectaular and I would recommend him to anyone!

I ordered 2 dozens of puffy cakes for an event at the office. Communication with Marie was very smooth, she was super professional and able to accommodate my requests. The order was delivered timely and the puffy cakes were delicious. I'd hired her again in the future and I'll totally recommend you do the same.

This is the first five star review I've ever given and I won't be surprised if it is the last. You just simply don't often encounter true dedication to perfection and willingness to go the extra mile, nowadays. The Frozen themed cake I ordered was incredible!! The father had tears in his eyes recounting how he felt like hero that day, entering the party with a cake that his little girl will never forget. It literally stole attention from the birthday girl! I cannot recommend The Sweet Stuff enough. You will be more than delighted, you will be amazed!! Thanks so much The Right Stuff Sweet Stuff Cake Shop!

For my wedding of 190 people, I needed a LOT of cupcakes and a small cake for my husband and I to cut. When I met with Susan, she had so many ideas that I would never have thought of on my own! She was able to take a piece of a bridesmaid dress and match the frosting to it! For our small cake, she ombred the frosting to give it an amazing look! It wasn't just a simple cake with colored frosting, I can't imagine the time it took to get the ombre to look so perfect. She came on time to the wedding and set everything up, she used flowers from the florist to decorate the cake on my request. Obviously, everyone absolutely loved the cupcakes. They all told me how delicious they were. So, they not only looked pretty, they tasted amazing as well. Susan was so sweet and kind, she listened to everything I had to say and came up with multiple ideas of what I could do to go with my color scheme and idea of my wedding. I could not have asked for a better person to handle my wedding cake and cupcakes.

Sary is incredibly gifted in her craft as a Pastry Chef. She has a wide range of skills when it comes to making a variety of pastries. Her cakes, pies, rum balls, macaroons, and all of the numerous other baked goods she makes are all delicious. Not only are they delicious but her decorating skills and presentation are better than some of the best bakeries I've been to!

Anita Starr from A Starr Events will be the best part of your wedding planning experience. She is professional, kind, and highly experienced in event planning and flower design. If you are looking for ideas, she has so many reference pictures and website suggestions for your every need. If you already have a clear idea of what you want, she executes your vision perfectly. She is highly organized and will keep you on track with what you should be organizing for your wedding day. The day of the wedding, everything went off without any problems. Somehow the payment for our musician had been misplaced by one of my bridesmaids and Anita paid him with her own personal account. I was so embarrassed that she had to do this, but it just shows how committed she is to making your day go off without a hitch. During our planning process she went through every detail meticulously and everything was placed exactly where we had discussed. Anita was also my florist and I cannot express how gorgeous the arrangements turned out! All of my guests were fighting at the end of the night to take the arrangements home. I had a vision for my arrangements and decor greenery and Anita brought it to life even more beautifully than the inspiration photos. Hiring A Starr events was the best decision I made during my wedding planning process. Where I needed inspiration and ideas, Anita was there providing beautiful suggestions that met my theme and vision perfectly. Where I needed someone to execute my exact vision, Anita went above and beyond my expectations. Whether you are a bride/groom looking for a fountain of suggestions or you are looking for a disciplined professional to execute your vision to the very last detail, Anita Starr is your perfect coordinator. Do not miss out on the opportunity to work with her and her staff--I cannot recommend her enough!!

I met the owner/cake designer of the Wild Orchard-Specialty Cake and Design through a local bridal show in San Francisco. She is very responsive in the whole process, from initial consultation and tasting appointment to my late decision (less than a week before the wedding) of adding mini wedding desserts for my special day. She communicates efficiently and professionally during the planning process to ensure all my special requests have been met. We like that this vendor is flexible on creating customized cake flavor based on my preferred ingredients and elements for a wedding cake. Both the wedding cake and mini desserts (macaroons and mini fruit tartlets) were great in texture, flavor profiles were unique without being overly sweet. We did not really research on the average pricing for wedding cake during the planning process, but we appreciated that the owner gave us suggestion on how to lower the total cost. We had a total guest count of 200 at the end. As an alternative, the owner suggested to have a smaller three-tier wedding cake that served 100, and supplemental sheet cakes that served 100. Based on the quality of services, responsiveness, flexibility of Wild Orchard-Specialty Cake and Design, I would recommend this vendor to a friend.
