We can't thank you enough for the most outrageous wedding cake ever! I was in shock when I walked into my wedding reception. I knew it was going to be beautiful, but never did I expect it to look like a celebrity cake. Please use us for any references. We admire your work. So talented!

Chef Melissa was so pleasant to work with. I had no idea what kind of cake or design I wanted. All her samples were fantastic. After picking 2 flavors and talking with her she pulled out of me exactly what I wanted my cake to look like. She also worked with me in finding the right cake as I did not have a very big budget. People at the wedding raved about the cake and even asked if there was anymore as the cake was gone from people taking 2-3 pieces. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect cake.

I accompanied a friend who was also getting married to a cake tasting with Gourmet bake shoppe and after just the first bite I had chosen them to also do my wedding cake!!! I was absolutely blown away! We had a nice planning meeting with Melissa, who was incredibly helpful in drawing out designs to help us envision what our cakes would look like. She brought out about 8 different flavors of cake for us to choose from and we ended up selecting three of them. My wedding was exactly a month away and Melissa was able to fit me into her busy schedule and provide me with an absolutely beautiful and delicious wedding cake. My cake is still being talked about!! Thank you Gourmet Bake Shoppe!!!

Melissa was great! We had so many options when tasting the cakes and all were excellent. I have tasted many wedding cakes and Melissa's were far above. They were not dry and were interesting. Our cake was lady Godiva chocolate with Kahula and almond with buttercream and fondant. We also did a grooms cake in key lime. I couldn't eat enough of them. Our decoration was amazing and she really listened to what we wanted and provided that and so much more. We had so many comments on the decoration of the cake, as well as, the sculpting of the grooms cake (shape of our bulldog). Simply amazing.

Melissa was great. We live about 4-5 hrs away and was able to come down one wkd about a month before the wedding and do our cake tasting. I left there wanting more cake, that's how good it was. We had our reception at the Lucky Oyster and she set up out cake and cupcakes like a true pro!! We found a picture online and it looked exactly how we wanted it to be. Super impressed!!
