The cake that Donna made was fantastic and delicious. She had the cake assembled and decorated as per our instructions. It was so nice to find a person who enjoys making cakes and won't charge an arm and leg.

I needed a cake recreated for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. I sent
Donna a picture of their original wedding cake from 50 years ago and she recreated it, on a much smaller scale with no problem. And the cake was AH-MAZING! Top tier chocolate with white chocolate mousse filling and bottom was lemon w/lemon curd filling. Just insanely good, guests couldn't stop talking and we all wanted to leftovers for breakfast the next morning.
She doesn't use fondant - which IMO is disgusting - just homemade buttercream - delish! She can also make it for any minimun of people as opposed to other cake places which start at 30+servings and she it tatally reasonable at $1.75/serving. Will be using her for every event from now on. Donna Hallenbeck 805/687-2784

Donna is fantastic! She works out of her house, so there's no overhead for a storefront or any of that stuff. She has incredibly reasonable prices, and her cakes are so much better than the stuff you'd normally pay a lot more for. She doesn't use fondant, which I think is great because that stuff is gross. She is really good at decorating without it, so I really don't think it's necessary anyway. Our cake was beautiful. Why put semi-edible paste on a cake if you don't have to?

She was incredibly responsive, and she made us several little cakes to take home and try. We ended up going with lemon with lemon buttercream. It arrived in plenty of time, and it was a big hit at the wedding!
