We discovered Melanie while planning for our wedding two years ago. My husband hadn't gotten excited about any of the tastings we'd done (this was the only part he was willingly helping with) and I had to drag him out to meet with Melanie. When we are tasted her cake I knew he loved it as much as I did, because his eyes lit up and he started smiling. We couldn't narrow them down to just one flavor, so Melanie actually made each layer a different flavor: Lemon, Italian Cream & White Wedding. It was really important for us to have great tasting cake, not the cake people take a bite of and leave the rest. Melanie delivered a beautiful cake, of which no one that I saw left any! We barely saved the topper! Since our wedding, we have had Melanie make us a cake for each of our wedding anniversaries, and it brings back great memories. This last year she made a Dr. Seuss cake for our son's first birthday. Melanie is very creative and can match most any design. We highly recommend her for great tasting, wonderful looking cakes at an affordable price.

Melanie did a phenomenal job on my grooms cake for my wedding as well as the cake pops and the stuffed strawberries are to die for! I was referred by a friend of mine who had a fantastic wedding cake made by Melanie and I Do refer her to everyone I run across looking for an exceptional and delicious creation!

I had Melanie make my cake and it was beautiful and tasted great. She was very patient and friendly, and was happy to help with anything! I couldn't ask for anything better.

Melanie did a custom made Minnie Mouse cake for my daughter's birthday and it was absolutely gorgeous! Not only beautiful, but tasted great and was a great value overall. Definitely will refer business to her!
