Our cake was the best wedding cake that I had ever tasted, and I have been to many weddings. Our guests raved about our cake. It was absolutely beautiful, and it tasted even better than it looked. The price was also very kind to our budget. We chose butter rum, french vanilla, and barely banana for our various layers with a butter cream frosting. The cake was so good, I plan on ordering another one for my husband's birthday, for my birthday, and for any other special occasion that comes up because we just can't wait until our first anniversary to taste the cake again!

Sandy did a fantastic job on our cake! When we met with her, she let us pick out some flavors and made us a whole cake to taste, not just once slice to share. We picked the same cake immediately, and our guests loved our cake as well!

Sandy Sheppard made 2 beautiful and delicious cakes for our daughter's wedding. The wedding cake was a beautiful tiered cake with draping and fresh sunflowers. The groom's cake was a computer circuit board which looked just like a circuit board. Working with Sandy was very easy. She had several flavors of cake to taste and after a decision was made we had one meeting to talk about the cake. They were delivered on time and set up beautifully. We heard many comments about how delicious and fresh the cakes were. There were no leftovers as many people ate more than one piece! I highly recommend Sandy. Her cakes were very reasonably priced for the quality of the cake.

Sandy did a fabulous job on our cake. It was perfect and exactly what we wanted. When we tasted all of her cakes we were unable to pick between the vanilla and chocolate so she made our cake half vanilla and half chocolate. My groom has a dairy allergy so she made a special cake for him.

When my florist forgot to include cake flowers, Sandy was able to pull flowers from the centerpieces and make it all work. And it turned out beautifully! Thank you so much!!

When I first sampled cake from Confectioner's Art at a bridal expo I knew they were the vendor for me. Since my financee wasn't with me at the expo we went to tastings with 2 other bakers and he was also sold on Confectioner's art after trying their cakes. The others just didn't compare. I had a general idea of what I wanted for the cake but was blown away by how great it looked when it arrived at our venue the day of the wedding. It was exactally what I had imagined AND it was delicious! Numerous guests told me how much they enjoyed the cake and some even went back for seconds since we had extra due to the surprise groom's cake I had ordered. My mom even ordered a third cake for our family reunion the day after the wedding because I kept going on and on about how good it was. Needless to say, the family was all happy to have more of the cake the next day!

Absolutely delicious cake. Beautiful design. Very accommodating with changing design when the season of our event changed from Fall to Spring. We originally contracted to have chocolate fall leaves as decor, which would clearly not work in Spring.

We loved our cakes! Our family and friends agreed that the cakes tasted delicious, and as people know, some cakes look great but don't taste that great! Sandy also did a 2D grooms cake of our college mascot, the JMU Duke Dog, that look awesome. Our friends were so impressed, and it added some fun to the reception when everyone busted out into the fight song!

Sandy provided 2 grooms cakes and our wedding cake. The grooms cakes were decorated with the jerseys of my husbands 2 fav basketball players. Each was a different flavor. We did this because we just couldn't choose one. Everything was delicious. I am very picky about cake, but these were absolutely fantastic. There were no issues and the prices were well within our budget. Also, the delivery charge was reasonable (I found it to be much higher at other places).

Sandy is great! She spent a lot of time with my husband and I to put together a cake design that fit our style. When we went to taste the cakes she provided two free samples and two more samples for $5 each. We thought we were going to get tiny pieces to try like we did at every other cake tasting, but Sandy had four small cakes baked! After we had a slice of each, she wrapped up the rest of the cakes and let us take them home! These cakes are delicious. So many cakes we tried from other cake makers were either dry or the icing tasted strange. Sandy's cakes are moist and just overall delicious. My husband also wanted a groom's cake shaped in the style of a DeLorean time machine from the movie "Back to the Future." One cake maker told us it would cost over $500 to get a modeled cake like that. Sandy did it for a fraction of that! You can't beat her prices for the quality you get. The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious and the DeLorean cake was done in amazing detail. Everyone loved it! We almost didn't want to eat it since it would destroy it, but we knew how good it would taste, so we ate it in the end!

Sandy did an AMAZING job with my cake! We had an initial meeting and she answered all my questions and gave some suggestions, and the cake sample was soooo good! It wasn't just a teeny slice, it was an actual little cake! And for a small cost, you can have another little cake if you can't decide the flavor! So after that meeting, I found the PERFECT wedding cake in a magazine and scanned it and sent it to her via email. I explained that I wanted it exactly like the picture, and I was SO excited when the day arrived to see the EXACT cake in front of me as I saw in the picture! Everything was so detailed and she did a really excellent job! Oh, and the cake was super tasty too!! I can't wait to try it again when I eat the top tier with my husband on our first anniversary!! :) :) :) Def. recommend!
