Our experience with Holly for our wedding cake was AMAZING. For one, her prices are beyond reasonable; instead of paying $600 for an average tasting cake from a pricey bakery, we were able to spend far less without sacrificing any quality and still being able to feed just as many guests. Guests made comments for a week after the event about how good both flavors of our cake were; I even had one of my male friends who is not at ALL a baker or chef by any means text me a few days after the event asking 'what was up with the frosting' because it was so good and he was telling everyone at work about the cake! Throughout the planning process Holly let us taste as many flavor combinations as we wanted and always sent us home with what was left of the tasting cakes - none of which she ever charged us for. Our final choice was a few layers of marble cake with raspberry filling (which is so good you almost just want to eat it by the spoonful) and a layer of vanilla bean cake with honey caramel filling which was also amazing. As a caramel addict, I told Holly from the start that that's what I loved. Her response was to make and let us taste three different kinds of caramel filling, all of which could have been adjusted for the exact flavor we wanted; I don't think many other bakeries are that creative and committed to making the perfect cake! We were thrilled with the final result and I know our guests were too - I would absolutely recommend Holly any day for weddings, birthdays, or whatever else you need!Dec 7, 2017Verified

Everything about working with this vendor was absolute perfection. She provided the dessert bites and cutting cake for my wedding and I received so many compliments. We did a tasting before the event and I was completely onboard. Then, the day of, everything was even better than I could have imagined and my guests were pulling me off the dance floor to ask about my deserts. I could not have asked for anything more than what I received, which was perfection. THANK YOU!!!Oct 27, 2017Verified
Holly is incredible! I am so happy that we found her and entrusted her with our wedding cake. It was absolutely gorgeous and tasted phenomenal! I REALLY wanted to have a lavender flavored cake - Holly delivered. During our tasting, we loved everything so much that we ended up doing 4 different flavors (one for each layer and a groom cake). This was a huge hit with our guests and we had less than 15 pieces of cake left at the end of the night. Besides being incredibly skilled at what she does, Holly is just an all around nice person. We would recommend her to anyone. Can't wait to get our pictures back so I can share how beautiful our cake was!Jul 15, 2019Verified
The cake turned out wonderfully, she was a joy to work with, and everyone loved the design! Thank you for making the cake portion of our wedding a "piece of cake!" (Sorry)Sep 18, 2018Verified
Backyard bakery is fantastic! She makes beautiful and delicious cakes and took the time to make sure it was the color and flavors we liked. She was very accommodating when meeting and am I was so amazed how the cake turned out. She makes sure that you aren’t spending a fortune and still getting a great quality cake. I recommend her all the way!!!Aug 13, 2018VerifiedBackyard Bakery's reply
Thank you Kinsey for such a wonderful review. It was a pleasure to be a small part of your big day.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?what style and shape they would like to have. Having an idea what flavor they like is good too.
