  • Hi Anthony!

    We had our wedding on October 7th, 2012 and I wanted to express how thankful we are to you and your team for our amazing wedding cake! We had people in awe and asking Dean and I if the cake was real or not. Once the guests tried the cake they were yet again in awe. Thank you so much for your numerous samples of the design and you got it just right! We can’t wait to come back for our 1 year anniversary. I have and will highly recommend you to all family and friends!!!!!!

    Thank you again so much,
