I actually knew that DessertWorks would be making my wedding cake before I was engaged. A great friend of mine had DessertWorks make the cake for her wedding several years ago and I stand by what I said then - its the best wedding cake I have ever had. It was not only beautiful, but tasted absolutely amazing. In order, the important things to me at my wedding were 1) my husband, 2) the cake. So, finding the right baker was essential to me. In order to make sure we were still making the right decision, we went to a couple other bakeries before committing to DessertWorks. One was okay, but the other was an awful experience. They sat us down with a plate, walked away, came back 30 minutes later and asked what flavors we decided. We had never been to a cake tasting so we didn't know where to start. Sandy, on the other hand, sat with us the entire time and walked us through the tasting. "Okay, so you liked this filling but thought it was a little too sweet - try this one instead but pump it up with the white chocolate frosting". In the end, the hardest part was narrowing it down to 3 combinations. I have gotten so many complements on that cake I cannot keep track anymore - my cousin is actually getting married in Alabama soon and called to ask if she could get that cake down there, that's how much she loved it. I loved the cake at our wedding, and, no joke, every cake I buy comes from DessertWorks. I cannot wait for our 1 year so I can have more cake!!!

Sandy worked magic when it came time to transfer what we really wanted our wedding cake to look like into reality. She was very easy to work with, was always happy to see us, was on time for our big day, and her tasting was amazing! We really appreciate that she makes her own cake and frosting, because my husband has a sulfite intolerance and he can eat her lovely cake without being sick (no other cake ever has let him do that!).

If you haven't tasted cake from DessertWorks Cakery yet, you are missing out. They are the best. So many choices for cake and icing. And Sandy is so talented in decorating. If you can dream it, she can do it. Cake tasting is one of the best parts of planning, but once you taste DessertWorks you'll have your winner. We had so many people tell us how delicious our cake was at our wedding. One tip: make sure you take time out of your reception for just a few bites of cake. It is oh so good!

We chose DessertWorks for our wedding because their cake was included in our reception price; however, I don't think we could have had a better cake! When I first saw our cake in the reception hall, it literally took my breath away. I told my husband that it was the most beautiful cake I had ever seen. Sandy and her team truly exceeded all of our expectations with how gorgeous the cake was! All of our guests were also raving about how delicious it was. In fact, over a month later, we are still having people tell us how beautiful and delicious the cake was! Thank you so much to Sandy and her team! We could not have been happier with our wedding cake!

Out of all the vendors from bridal shows, DessertWorks was the first name I remembered. The taste of the cake is unmatched! Sandy is the best and surpassed my expectations- which speaks volumes as the cake we chose was very challenging. She is amazing and her passion for what she does shows!

I loved my cake from DessertWorks. The cake was beautiful and exactly what I wanted. The cake also tasted AWESOME. The thing that I did not like about this company was the professionalism and the responsiveness. This company would take FOREVER to cash a check that we would pay with. She would also be extremely slow in responding to us when we called. The worse thing that we encountered was on the actual wedding day. She showed up to my wedding with my cake a couple hours after she was scheduled to show. When we were calling to see where she was she NEVER answered the phone. She walked into my venue with an attitude. She explained that she did receive our messages but she just did not respond. This was very unprofessional and rude! Even though the cake turned out awesome I am not sure if I would want to deal with a vendor like this again.

DessertWorks Cakery responded with the following comments:

Ok, let's see...1)The cake was beautiful and EXACTLY what you wanted,and 2)The cake tasted AWESOME! I believe that is what you hired us to provide!!! I'm delighted you were thrilled with the cake. I'm glad we were able to interpret your ideas & provide your dream cake on your special day, even after meeting only once,at the initial consultation. 3) All cake pmts were by credit card, not check, by your aunt. The 2nd pmt was even held for 2 weeks past due, while she recovered from surgery. My communications with your aunt & mom were delightful and timely. Your mother’s $56 check for a castle topper I custom ordered, (at wholesale $), wasn’t cashed immediately due to the suppliers backorder, so I reordered it from another supplier, not cashing the check until I had topper in hand.
Your wedding was to start, in the separate outside patio, at 5:30 with a 6:00 reception start. Our delivery window originally estimated arrival at 2 -4pm; Due to the heat and traffic, (it happens) I arrived at 4:30pm, 1 ½ hours before reception start time;not late. Msgs were left with the venue staff advising our eta. I became aware of 2 calls to the shop by my asst. as I was arriving at the venue. (Can’t answer the SHOP phone if I’m not there). Upon arrival, your aunt was lovely & helpful holding the side door (it locks); I was distracted by bridesmaids constantly interrupting with questions, flitting about the delivery cart and table jeopardized the safety of your cake. I left about 5:30 and, unfortunately, did not see you as you were still upstairs getting ready. I did chat with the adorable groom who grinned from ear to ear over the cake; Your grandmother hugged me over the beautiful cake. We provided exactly the very detailed, delicious, elaborate castle fairytale cake you desired. I am glad we were able to provide you with your dream cake and thank you for your business. Best wishes for many years of happy years together!

Sandy did SUCH a wonderful job on my cake! I came in with not very many ideas on what I wanted, and she was able to help me narrow in and figure out what look good. I came with a picture I had found that had a fairly intricate icing design going up the layers of the cake and she was so excited to take on the challenge, and it ended up looking fabulous!
