We hired Rosa to do our wedding cake! She let us have a tasting to try several cakes and they were very delicious. We knew right after the tasting that we want to hire her. She also gave us many ideas and showed us pictures of cakes to help me decide what kind of style we wanted.

I hired Anna to cater a baby shower I was hosting for a friend. She was so easy to work with and flexible with menu choices. It was my first time hiring a chef and she made the experience awesome and I definitely would hire her again. She provided tasteful decor to accompany the table and the food was wonderful!

I must say! When I first heard of Rahea's Kakery, I was a bit curious. The owner being so young. What could she offer? Well I was impressed by the homemade buttercreme icing and the oh so moist cupcakes. I will continue to use her services for any event that I need cupcakes, sheet cakes and anything that have to do with cakes. I highly recommend this young entrepreneur to anyone! ONE HAPPY CUSTOMER :)

We were so blessed to work with Alexandria & her whole Purposefully Designed Event team. She planned our entire wedding effortlessly and truly made the entire experience a stress free one!! Their team catered our wedding, too! Stephanie- their patty chef created a beautiful and delicious wedding cake for us! She recommended great vendors for our music and photography. We even were married using the venue she recommended : the Nottingham garden house. It was beautiful, budget friendly and truly enjoyable! No matter if you are on a tight budget or have all the money in the world- Hire Purposefully Designed Events!!! 10 out of 10!

Kim was wonderful! I hired her as a surprise chef for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was outstanding. She gave us some great cooking tips. She was professional, efficient and a delight. We will be having her come cook again!

FOODWAYS AND FOLKTALES by Vera Oye’ Yaa Anna In January 2008, Vera Oye’ Yaa Anna, presented a program for the African Section of the African and Middle Eastern Division of the Library of Congress entitled “Foodways and Folklore.” As a culinary Griot, Ms. Yaa Anna prepared a buffet meal of Garlic Collard Greens, Couscous, Jerk Turkey, Spinach and Cilantro and fried plantains, with Auntie Oye’ Pettit Rice Bread Muffins for dessert and a beverage of Alkaline tea, made with ph balanced water. The program was open to the public, and as it was held on a Saturday, many families came. Understandably, there were no left overs. The carefully and tastefully presented food was served alongside folktales and history about how these foods came to be, and the interconnection between Liberia, the native land of Yaa Anna, and the United States. She told the history of how freed slaves came back to Liberia with some influence of the times they spent in the United States. Later in the program, Yaa Anna told humorous, moral tales in the fashion of the Palaver Hut, a Liberian tradition where people hold discussions and tell stories. The three-hour program, which included time to eat the delicious food, time to hear the history of the food and time to hear amusing stories with some sage information embedded in them. Yaa Anna’s engaging story-telling, healthy and lovingly prepared gourmet dishes made for a fun and educational Saturday for the two dozen visitors, who then asked “when are you going to do this again?” We here at the Library of Congress would gladly extend the invitation again for this excellent program.

It was such a pleasure to work with Stephanie who designed the most beautiful seashells cake to celebrate an anniversary! We called late in the season but she managed to work us in graciously and relieved our stress. Nothing could have been more beautiful than the two tiered cake the color of sand adorned with white chocolate seashells filled with delicious chocolate caramel! Stephanie guided us in the decision process, was prompt, professional and just a delight to work with. Love in the Detail's cakes comes with our highest recommendation!

All my items are created using only the best ingredients. I have a commitment to quality and freshness; therefore cakes are never frozen and always baked 24 hours before they are due to be served. You'll definitely taste the difference!
