The wedding cake Lisa baked was delicious as well as gorgeous. Often wedding cakes are attractive but not tasty. In this case, the cake was both beautiful and had incredible flavor. It was moist and light as we hoped. We had both an almond cake layers and chocolate cake layers - both were fantastic. The fillings were out of this world and the icing was yummy.

We are delighted with our selection of Cakes by Lisa.

I couldn't be happier with my experience with Lisa. My mom and I went to her house to view her cakes and sample them. Immediately we looked at each other and thought wow we are not going to be able to afford these because they look like something out of one of those pastry talent competitions on TV. Then we tasted them and not only do they look exquisite, but they taste incredible too. Shockingly she fell perfectly within our budget and I was thrilled... my cake was going to be amazing!! The entire experience was stress-free and wonderful. I was so happy when I saw my cake the day of the wedding, it almost stole the show as guests were lined up to take a picture of my cake. Thank you Lisa for your talent and making my wedding day just that much more special! I can't wait for our one year anniversary when I can eat my cake again!

You are so very welcome Carey! It was a pleasure working with you-you were an awesome bride! And the cake may have been pretty, but no way could it ever outshine you on your day! I had a blast creating it and was quite happy with the results too. I truly believe cakes should taste as good as they look, and always try to price them fairly according to how much work is involved. I'm so glad you chose me to make your cake! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Lisa was so great! She saved the day for me! My original wedding cake vendor was very unresponsive from the start and after struggling to communicate with them I decided to go a different route. I found Cake Expressions by Lisa a little over a month before my wedding date and thankfully she was available! She arranged a meeting with me so I could taste her cake and I was sold. No stress for me from that point on! She was so wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. I gave her my ideas and everything turned out beautifully and the cake and cupcakes were sooo yummy! I couldn't be more pleased! I'm so glad Lisa was available and was such a pleasure to work with.

Lisa was amazing to work with! I planned my wedding from out of town, which made scheduling a cake tasting in advance difficult. Lisa worked with me so I was able to do my tasting 3 days before we needed our groom's cake and 4 days before our wedding. Every flavor and filling was delicious and we were beyond pleased with the design of our cakes. Our wedding cake was exactly what I had envisioned and Lisa was able to take an idea and make it come alive in our groom's cake. She was easy to get in touch with and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I would highly recommend Cake Expressions by Lisa!

What a fantastic experience! Lisa not only makes gorgeous cakes, they actually taste good too! I had to entirely plan my wedding from Florida, so I never got to try samples or meet Lisa, but she was very responsive to email, and helped me put my dream wedding cake together over email. She provides helpful input, without badgering you into just doing things her way. I had several people at my wedding stop me and say "this is the most beautiful cake I have ever laid eyes on," and one of them bakes wedding cakes herself! Also, for her high level of work, Lisa's prices are very competitive. She doesn't gouge you for the setup fee like many others do. She also made the groom's cake for the rehearsal dinner, and that was absolutely delicious as well. My only regret is that I never got to meet Lisa or thank her in person! Very highly recommended...you can't go wrong with Cake Expressions!
