I can not say enough how amazing this cake was! not only did it look amazing but I have never been to a wedding before where people are asking for more cake, and calling you the next day to see if you had any left. I had provided cake boxes for guest to take a piece home with them I had 150 boxes and about 90 guest, I got to take 1 piece home with us, we thought long and hard about going ahead and cutting into our top tier and just saying a *piece* of it instead. She did both cakes Brides and Grooms and the grooms what outstanding. It was his 18 wheeler with a step deck trailer with his two play toys on the back. it even had working lights in it! Tabitha truly out did herself.

We did tastings with three bakers, and Tabitha was by far the best. Her cake is perfectly moist, and her icing isn’t overwhelming. She was able to create a cake that was exactly what I had in mind based on a photo. The final cake was beautiful and delicious, and her prices are very reasonable.

My cake was off the chain!!!!!! First and foremost, my wedding cake had to be made with two major dietary restrictions; without gluten or dairy and still it was the most amazing cake ever!!!! The flavor was white chocolate mocha but you can ask for most any flavor and Ms. Tabitha is sure to deliver. I have also ordered cake balls and on both occasions they were amazing and again they were made to order without dairy or gluten. And the price quality ratio is by far the best I have ever seen for made to order cakes. I just love love loooovvveeeee her cakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tabitha is very quick to respond to emails and very easy to work with. She made our wedding cake and grooms cake, both of which looked and tasted great. All of both cakes were completely eaten. If you are looking for a beautiful, tasty and affordable wedding cake, look no further.

Tabitha was so sweet and easy to work with. She perfectly replicated the designs that we requested, and the cakes were delicious. My only complaint was that the groom’s cake (chocolate) seemed a little dry, but then again, we only ate a tiny bite of the edge so that may have been why. Everyone absolutely loved our non-traditional strawberry cake (and we did too)!

Tabitha's cakes were lovely and delicious. We had a 3-tiered wedding cake with different flavors in each layer as well as a groom's cake. I got to taste all of the flavors except one, and they all tasted great. Several people mentioned to me that the cake tasted moist and homemade. She also worked with me to make sure a cake topper that I made for the groom's cake would fit and be sturdy on top of the cake. Overall, we were very happy with our cakes and they were a great value for the price we paid. My only criticism would be with the website....it needs an update!
