My first experience with Cakes Abound was an order for Andrea's Apple Cookie Pies. They were delicious and traveled from Virginia to Massachusetts to be shared with family. I next ordered a beautiful flower cupcake arrangement for an event. For this order I chose pound cake cupcakes. Friends could not believe the talent that was displayed in the flower cupcake arrangement and the cupcakes received rave reviews. My latest order was a special request for a cake with a beach theme. Because Andrea had visited in our beach home, she knew we had a "few" mermaid decorations on the upper level. I was blown away when I received the cake. She had a mermaid positioned on the top with seashells, fish, starfish, etc. around the cake. It was totally AWESOME and my granddaughters LOVED it as did the adult family members. I chose a favorite flavor of Andrea's selections, chocolate fudge brownie which normally includes a caramel and nut filling. To my disappointment, I needed to request a chocolate filling instead to make the granddaughters happy. I have tasted the caramel and nut filling and it is divine! The chocolate cake and the fondant frosting were both wonderful. I continue to be amazed at Andrea's creative cake designs and the deliciousness of the cake, the fillings and fondant. The taste as wonderful as they look. Her work quality, communication, professionalism, value, timeliness and on budget are all outstanding. For some reason, I was not able to click on the stars above to indicate five stars in each category. You will not be disappointed with a cake from Cakes Abound, cupcakes or some of her great cookie pies!
