Our cake was pretty but not what we ordered.

Throughout our communications with Carlos prior to the wedding, we made it very clear that the single most important requirement that we had for the wedding cake was that we did not want any fondant. This was discussed in the initial emails, in person, and noted on the contract. When we agreed to the contract he reassured us that it was not going to be a problem to have buttercream, even with the heat (this was an outdoor wedding). Unfortunately, when we took our first bites, in front of all our guests, there was a thick layer of fondant and a very thin layer of buttercream. It does not taste good. This may be a personal preference but one that we made very clear and should have been a priority over looks.

We contacted Carlos to see how such a mistake could be made and he said that it was a decision he made in case the wedding remained outside if there was rain (we ended up inside), as he wanted it to "look pretty". Had we been consulted, we would have told him not to do this and would have avoided the surprise at our reception.

We were very disappointed with the product and lack of communication as well as the responsiveness following the wedding.

**EDIT: In reply to vendor's reply, from the beginning we had said that if the cake being outside due to weather would be a problem, we would rather keep it inside until the cake cutting than have fondant. Although we did not complain at the wedding (because there would have been nothing that could have been done at that point), we had multiple guests mention it to us after the fact because they know how much we dislike fondant. As I wrote before, the cake was good and pretty, except for the fondant. It's just not what we ordered.

C+M Contemporary Master Cake Designers responded with the following comments:

As we explained to you before, The weather of your wedding day was a really bad one as you know. They was a lot of rain and your wedding was moved from outside to an OUTSIDE TERRACE, so it wasnt inside with air conditioning. You recived a great product. We decided responsably to put fondant because if we didnt make that your cake in the OUTSIDE TERRACE is was going to melt, and if it melts you were also going to have a complain. We talked with lots of People that worked in your wedding and NO ONE received a complaine of the cake, All Your guests ate the cake and no one complaine about it. That You Dont Like FONDANT it doesn't mean that it was bad. As i said before we made the decision Because we know our weather and cakes are very delicate if The Wedding is outside like your that was in an OUTSIDE TERRACE it was not inside like you say.

You also send us the complain 3 days after the wedding and you didnt complain with anyone that worked for you in the wedding because we already asked. Also you send an email Saying that you where going to wright a bad review. WE did a Great job like a responsable Pastrey Chef Would in a VERY BAD WEATHER in Your OUTSIDE TERACE. WE saw all the wedding pics and you looked very happy in all of them.

Carlos and Maricel are true artists. They make some of the most beautiful wedding cakes not just in Puerto Rico, but in the world! There's nothing else like them and I've done my research. Everyone was blown away by how beautiful our wedding cake was. The details were amazing and the final result was nothing short of a masterpiece. They are Puerto Rico's best kept secret! You won't find anything even close! Thank you for exceeding our expectations and making our wedding cake a spectacular work of art.

Carlos and Maricel made us an absolutely beautiful wedding cake that was exactly what we wanted! It was a fairly simple design, but it looked elegant and perfect with our decor. They were also able to make each layer a different flavor so our guests could choose a traditional (marble) or a more unique (yellow with guava) flavor. Overall, we loved Carlos and Maricel's work and how easy they were to work with. We would recommend them to anyone!

My cousin is in the wedding industry in Puerto Rico. The only cake designers she recommended to use was C=M Contemporary Master Cake Designers and for good reason. I gave the some styles through my awesome wedding planner Yaska that I liked and they executed it perfectly. You can tell that they take great pride and our very talented in making your wedding cake a piece of art to remember for a lifetime. My husband and I were so very happy with our cake. I looked amazing, and the flavors of coconut and rum were delicious. I've looked at their previous work and have loved everything that I have seen, I knew that would not be disappointed. I have the top layer of our cake in the freezer, and I'm not sure I can wait a year to have it. I highly recommend them for the wedding cake.

First off, I think it's important to say that I was equally excited to shop for my wedding dress as I was to shop for our wedding cake! I LOVE cake and it was an important factor of our wedding. I knew I wanted something non traditional, I wanted each guest to have their own beautifully crafted mini cake and then a small 2 tier cake for my husband and I to cut etc.... Our wedding planner, Maria Lugo set up our initial meeting while we were visiting about a year before the wedding day. We met with Marisol who was so professional and a complete joy to worth with. I provided pictures that interested me and she provided valuable feedback to make our cake even more special and unique. She brought along a portfolio of work along with samples which were so delicious we ate every bite!

As the wedding approached, I provided color chips I picked up from Home Depot because we wanted the half the cakes a deep red with one design, and the other half of the cakes were a very saturated teal color with a different design. C+M was totally on point and nailed the cake! I wish I could post photos because the detail in all 50 of the cakes was to die for!!!! They were displayed like a piece of art and many guests actually thought they were art, and were shocked they were cakes. I couldn't be more thrilled with their work they made my wedding so special!

I would also like to mention my husband had contacted them in private to have them make a surprise cake for me. He had bought me a pair of laser cut Christian Louboutin heels as a wedding present, but had given them to me before the wedding. At our Welcome party, I see Marisol out of the corner of my eye carrying a Louboutin box with my heels.... Except it wasn't my heels, it was a cake made to look just like them! WHAT A WORK OF ART!!! The detail was spot on and the shoes looked real enough to wear! I didn't want to cut the cake, but I love cake so...ya... We ate it, and it was the best surprise of the trip!!

The cake was beautiful. I didn't have a specific idea of what I wanted so I gave the designer creative license. The cake was classic and looked great. They incorporated my last minute cake topper beautifully!

This was a destination wedding for us, so I didn't get to do a tasting. I saw many reviews raving about the guava/rum cake, so I ordered that. It turned out it was too sweet for my taste, but I don't fault them for that! I didn't know what it would taste like, and accepted the risk!

The staff were friendly, responsive, and professional through the process. I highly recommend them!

I sent at least FIVE totally different ideas for pictures to Carlos and Marisol. He merged the most beautiful ones into a single and unique concept. He got it right with only meeting in person once (it was a destination wedding) and speaking on the phone twice. Not to mention, I had to change the wedding date..long story... And he fit us in. We almost had to find another vendor! We got tons of compliments on the cake. The exterior was exquisite and the cake itself was to die for. We chose Cinnamon and White Wine for one tier, and Rum with Guava for the other. I don't remember what the top tier was, but we will find out in a year. Their cakes are moist and more like Puertorrican baking, and the flavored are amazing. I think we might have picked Nutella with Frangelico for the top. If I redid every aspect of my wedding (totally wouldn't, it was a dream) this is the one thing I would NOT change!!!

My wedding cake was a stunning work of art consisting of 5 tiers covered in beautifully laced fondant accented with Swarovski crystals. Each tier displayed an intricately hand crafted pattern with the bottom tier resembling a bed of satin roses. Deliciously baked to perfection, each tier was an exquisite blend of flavors which was one of the highlights of our evening. Our guests are still raving about the majestic confections which included chocolate covered strawberries, truffles, guava cakes, cake pops provided by C&M Cake Designers. It was undoubtedly the sweetest end to a glorious event!
