All of our guests raved about how tasty our cake was and I’m just glad I saved the top tier for myself (which we ate 1/2 of the week post wedding!).” – Rachelle Findley

I am from out of province and had no ability to do a tasting or a face to face meet.  I had only seen her portfolio and booked solely off of that and her ratings. I WAS  AMAZED. It was identical to my reference pictures. I chose a two tier cake with two different flavored tiers, both were delicious and beautifully done. I am so impressed and would recommend her to everyone.” – Mya Larkin

People loved them and the cake was so beautiful! she did a faux birch tree looking cake and people actually thought it was a real tree it looked so real! it was amazing. we couldn’t be happier with her service.

“Amazing cake. It is very unique in its flavour and texture unlike most generic cake. The cake is dense and isn’t too sweet yet flavourful. The icing is a perfect consistency/viscosity without a sweetness that isn’t too overbearing to the cake ratio. Ordered the London fog cake and in the center was ozing some delicious Earl Grey salted caramel which was also just enough to balance out each layer. The cake was beautifully made and worth a try (or two, or three…).” – CY Siu

“Lisa was so accommodating. Super friendly and personable. She loves what she does and it shows in her cakes. Delicious butter cream icing on a colour funfetti cake. Perfect for our little one’s second birthday. Don’t forget a birthday cake cookie for the ride home.” – Angela L (AL)
