Sure, we're biased, but I have to say that Chris's wedding cake was the best we've ever had. Our cake was so light and fluffy, with delicious fillings and a yummy buttercream frosting.

We met Chris at a wedding show in Madison. We went specifically to find our cake vendor, and of the eight or so we met there she was by far the best. When we went for a tasting with her, we were in heaven — so many sweet options! We ultimately chose three tiers, and received compliments on all of them the day of.

Chris was professional, on time with her delivery and even built a small stand for our cake toppers so they wouldn't sink into the cake itself. We're looking forward to receiving our anniversary cake from her in nine months!

We had so many compliments on the cake! We had three different flavors and every flavor was delicious. I also had Chris do a little more intricate design on the cake that we saw she did for her niece and just loved it, and it turned out beautiful, exactly what I was looking for!

Chris’s Confections baked and decorated our wedding cakes. We had a unique vision for our wedding cake – we ordered three separate cakes. The largest one had varying tier heights and the other two were smaller cakes to set on decorative cake stands. She was open to our ideas and gave us suggestions based on what she felt she could accomplish. We met with her for a tasting and to discuss the design. All of the cake flavors and fillings combinations were really delicious. We couldn’t decide, so we ordered three different flavors: white cake with lemon blueberry filling, mocha cake with chocolate ganache filling, and chocolate cake with turtle (caramel, pecans, and chocolate) filling. There were all just as delicious on our wedding day. We ordered extra just to make sure we had leftovers!
The final cakes didn’t look exactly like I pictured, but they had the rustic look I wanted. I gave Chris a pattern to mimic on the main cake that we used in other areas of the wedding. The day before the wedding, she called to let me know that the pattern wasn’t working out very well, and asked if she could modify the design a bit. I agreed and really appreciated her letting me know. I knew since we came up with the design ourselves, it was likely it wouldn’t turn out exactly like we imagined. It was pretty nonetheless and none of our guests knew it wasn’t exactly like we originally planned.
Chris worked with my wedding coordinator to schedule delivery. In the days following the wedding, we misplaced the cake’s structural supports, so we had to forfeit the $35 deposit. However, I think that fee is reasonable so it didn’t bother us. Chris was very accommodating and easy to work with and always communicated professionally and promptly after contact.

Chris did an amazing job with our wedding cake!! It looked like something out of a magazine and was delicious!! I sampled multiple vendors in the area; Craig's cakes, cupcakes a go go, rolling pin bakery, Gigi's cupcakes; she was hands down #1 best value, taste and service! I would recommend her for any occasion.

We decided on Chris's Confections after visiting Carl's, Craig's and Chris's and these are the reasons why:
- Although we missed our tasting due to flight issues, she sent us home with a tasting platter and they were all so yummy! First and foremost the cakes tasted great. We especially loved the White Almond Poppy Seed with raspberry filling!
- The main reason we choose Chris is due to her designs. Although Carl's and Craig's cake's tasted delicious they were no match in the design department. Our colors were black and white- Chris did a black ribbon and detailed black scroll that was exactly what we had envisioned. We had tons of compliments on the uniqueness. (wish I could post pics)
- Chris was easy to work with, responded quickly and did everything we needed. (straightforward, but nothing wrong with that)

Overall, I would use Chris again and recommend her to others- the cake looked beyond amazing and tasted great!

Chris is a fabulous baker and her cakes are to die for! My cake was not only gorgeous but delicious (even after being frozen for several weeks it is still moist)! Chris also made cookies for our favors and bagged them for us ahead of time so that we would not have to worry about getting them to the reception site. My only quibble is that Chris can sometimes be hard to get in touch with and is a little less flexible in terms of returning items (dowels, cake stands, etc.) to her home after the event. This proved a little challenging for my husband and I since all of our guests were from out of town and we left for our honeymoon the morning after our wedding.

She made me feel dumb asking questions at the initial meeting and kept asking my why mother wasn't there. Her cake tasted fine but her service was horrible. On the wedding day she missed the one exit to the venue, got lost, and called my mother. She blamed her for giving her wrong directions. (She didn't get lost on back roads, she literally drove to the wrong town. She had no GPS and apparently forgot how to ask for directions from someone OTHER than the MOB. My mom handed the phone off because she couldn't take the extra stress. For someone who makes wedding cakes for a living, Chris is clueless about wedding day stress. Also, our order was for the top cake to be white with plain vanilla filling for my mom and she didn't do that, it was just like the rest of the cake. Getting lost happens and my family would have been so fine with her lateness but she was so rude!

Chris's Confections responded with the following comments:

Wow! In all of my years in business I don't think I have ever had anyone tell me I made them feel dumb. I can honestly say that I do not recall the appointment but I can't imagine why I would have asked her why her mom wasn't there. Most brides and grooms come in with out a mom and I would never ask them why their mom wasn't there. The only thing I can think is that possibly she came in alone, without the groom but I would not have asked her over and over why her mom wasn't there. Why would a bride book with me if she says I made her feel dumb and was rude to her?
I went back and looked at the contract and I can see where I might have done the top cake the wrong flavor. There was never any mention of this after the wedding or I would have made them another 6" cake in the white for them. I am a people pleasing person I generally bend over backwards to make people happy and or make things right.
I do recall the delivery on this cake. The family had given me directions over the phone ahead of the day of the wedding. I am located on the east side of Madison and this wedding was way out in the Dodgeville area in the middle of nowhere on a farm.
I did get mixed up on the exits and had to go further and turn around. I can't imagine that anyone else could have given me directions to this farm.
My GPS on my phone did not work out there but works fine in and around the Madison area and closer surrounding areas. I know that some MOB are stressed on the wedding day but I was lost and had to get there.
The cake was well ahead of the ceremony starting so I'm not sure why she said it was late. I do remember there being a lot of chaos when I got there because of the parking situation.
If I recall right they had a bus bringing guests there because of where this farm was located and the lack of parking. I can't imagine that others would not have gotten lost too.
This wedding was on Sept. 21, 2013. Wondering why she chose to wait until Feb. 2014 to write this review?
