From our first email exchange, I could tell Dawn is a true professional who cares about her business and her art. Dawn was so helpful throughout our planning process--she scheduled a professional cake ... Read more tasting at her home for us where we were able to try four different flavor and filling combinations from the multitudes she offers. We decided on a four-tiered cake constructed with pumpkin with white chocolate mousse, a classic vanilla with strawberry buttercream, and a red velvet with cream cheese. Even after we had talked over designs, Dawn still thought about our wedding cake and how to make it even better--she followed up with a design option that we loved even more than our original design. The cake looked absolutely amazing, was delivered promptly and securely, and, most importantly, was the best tasting cake we had ever eaten! It's one thing to have your cake look like an entry on a celebrity chef reality show (which it did!), it's another thing entirely to have it taste as good as it looks. We received so many compliments and had very few leftovers to pack with us the next day! Thanks so much for your professionalism, your care for quality, and your artistry, Dawn!

Phenomenal. Memomoriable.

About 2 years ago, I had Dawn’s cake at a 50th Anniversary party. It. Was. Phenomenal. Once I got engaged, I knew exactly who I wanted to make my cake! We had a 4 tiered cake and half a sheet cake ... Read more with 3 different flavors/fillings covered in buttercream icing. You would not believe how many people commented on the cake. It was delicious and I cannot WAIT to eat our anniversary cake (which by the way she makes and boxes separate so you have one!)! I would HIGHLY recommend Dawn. She is beyond amazing!

She made beautiful cupcakes for the reception as well and they tasted just as amazing as they looked. She personally delivered the cake, cupcakes and decorated the cake on site.
