Carol and her team made us an absolute beautiful cake. When I walked into the consultation with Carol, I knew that I wanted a fairy tale wedding cake. And she presented me with an amazing idea for decoration. We ended up getitng a beautiful 3-tiered cake in which there was a road going up the side of the cake with a glass horse and carriage at the bottom. At the top of the cake was a beautiful glass blown castle (Manitou Glass Blowers). It turned out to be absolutely gorgeous. The taste of the cake was extraordinary, each layer was different. We decided on chocolate, lemon and red velvet. Our guests were in love after eating Carol's cake. She was such a delight to work with and if I could do it over again; I couldn't imagine anyone else to have done our wedding cake. Thanks Carol!

WOW! If you are looking for gorgeousness and deliciousness in a wedding cake, all at the same time - you have found the right baker! Carol was awesome with the planning and decision making process for our daughter's wedding cake. She chose a beautiful 4 tier cake, with offsetting textures and adorable buttons running down the front of all 4 tiers. All tiers were delicious; chocolate, vanilla with raspberry filling, german chocolate and strawberry! QUADRUPLE YUM! On top of the cake, she added a small silver airplane and coordinated some purple flowers with our florist! It was adorable and done in such good taste and complimented the theme of the wedding perfectly! You cannot go wrong with this lady!!! PS: Personality a huge plus!!

Carol is the best! I contacted her after attending a friend's wedding where Carol had made the cake. Carol was so easy to work with, and made everything to our specifications. Her cake is SO delicious. We had four flavors, and many of our guests went back for multiple pieces because it was so good. The cake was beautifully decorated and displayed, and Carol took care of everything for us. We could not be happier!

First off, my family and I probably went to 7 different cake tastings and by far Carol's are the best tasting. However you must know that she uses whipped cream as frosting if you don't ask for buttercream (we did). We are a buttercream family and her buttercream was delicious... probably the best cakes I've ever had in my life!! For about $300 + $65 delivery fee I got seven single layer 8" cakes that were the centerpieces on each table (all different flavors) plus one two-tier, two-layer cake (6x8). We requested that each cake have pretty basic, but different designs on each with different colors and they turned out perfect. Trying to communicate out of state was definitely difficult, and Carol was not very responsive to (and misunderstood) email communications. However when I got up there a few days before the wedding I sat down with her in person to go over the finer details and everything was much more clear. There was also an issue where one of her employees gave us a very low quote (as you can see) so I could tell she was not thrilled that she had to make 8 cakes for only $300. Considering everything though, I would definitely use her again because she had the best looking and best tasting cakes I've ever had.

They were INCREDIBLE!!!! The cake turned out perfectly. I couldn't have been more pleased with what they did with the cake. At the last minute, I brought in two items to be placed on the cake and they did it with no problem and made the items fit in perfectly.
I also had Creative Cakes by Carol do the Groom's Cake. My husband flies Blackhawk helicopters and they made a helicopter for him. I sent Carol some pictures of the Blackhawks and my husband was so impressed with just how close they got to the Blackhawk. The only problem was they had him hanging out the wrong side of the Helicopter, but that was my fault not theirs. They did an absolutely incredible job! The Groom's Cake was the hit of the reception especially with all the other military men who were at the wedding.
Thanks Carol! Highly recommended for any wedding!
