Lisa did an amazing job with our wedding cake, grooms cake, and cupcakes!! Not only were they delicious but beautiful as well!!! Lisa was very easy to work with, she answered all of my questions and even gave me suggestions to flavor combinations and decorations! My husband and I are lucky to have found Gourmet Confections, due to his severe nut allergy, Lisa was the only place that could guarantee nut free! We highly recommend Gourmet Confections!

We are so glad that we worked with Lisa of Gourmet Confections! She provided us with 480 cupcakes plus a topper cake on very short notice!! We were able to choose custom cupcake and frosting flavors and everything was delicious!! She also provided us with a huuuge box of treats to taste before our wedding and absolutely everything was delicious! Lisa delivered the desserts to our venue (on the Sunday of a holiday weekend no-less) and set them up in a beautiful display, including a cupcake tower that were rented from her (she has a round and a square one). We also loved that she had a long-standing, excellent working relationship with our wedding planner: Shannon Whitney of Wedding Planning Plus (also highly recommended!). You know if a wedding planner loves a vendor then they HAVE to be good! Also, Lisa is as sweet as her desserts :)

Lisa mad us an amazing grooms cake for our wedding. My husband is a Marine and we were married on the Marine Corps Birthday so we thought the perfect groom’s cake would be a birthday cake with the Marine Corps seal on it. We were referred to Lisa by our wedding cake baker who thought Lisa was a better fit for the job. My husband was so impressed at how amazing the cake looked and his marine buddies were blown away. The cake was beautiful and tasted great. I would highly recommend Lisa for any cake needs!

Lisa is truly a gifted and talented chef.... and a chef that I had all the confidence in the world in.

We were fortunate enough to have Lisa bake our wedding cupcakes, ranging in flavor from pumpkin spice, to apple cinnamon, to espresso, to belgian white chocolate. The cupcakes were to DIE for ... every single guest was raving about them. Lisa's work didn't stop there ... she also baked (from scratch!) an assortment of cookies and pastries for each table for us. The flavor, freshness and visual appeal left each person speechless.

Lisa's overall presentation of her work was magnificent. The cupcakes looked gorgeous, and our cake topper was truly a work of art. It broke my heart to cut it.

It is very rare to come across a moist, yummy and delectable wedding cake. With Lisa on your team, you are GUARANTEED to have absolutely delicious desserts. We were so fortunate to work with her, and still have some cookies frozen in the freezer ... although this broke her heart to hear, since she NEVER freezes anything. EVERYTHING she bakes is fresh!

xoxo - Allie & Steve Wik

I can't say enough nice things about Lisa! She was so fun to work with that I looked forward to going there every time. After our first cake tasting I was hooked. She gave us a box of cupcakes consisting of all the different flavors of cake with all the fillings and frostings in separate little containers. It was delivered to my hair salon while I was getting my hair done! Since then she's done a birthday cookie bouquet for my husband which was awesome and she did cupcakes for the rehearsal dinner. My wedding cake was amazing. She added Swarovski crystal bands around each tier and a square crystal broach on a black velvet band around the center tier. It was beautiful and I received tons of compliments on it. I'm sure I'll be using Gourmet Confections for everything now. Everything I've had so far has been amazing. I'm SO looking forward to our 1 year anniversary cake top!

We got a top tier of red velvet cake and 75 cupcakes from Lisa, and everything was delicious!! She was extremely flexible and made us 4 different types of cupcakes, even though there was such a small number of them. Lisa always got back to me very quickly when I had any questions. She was also extremely generous and made us a whole box of cupcakes and frostings to try when we met with her. I'm already looking forward to getting another cake from her on our 1 year anniversary, and I'm sure I'll be going to her many times over the years!

Our wedding cake designed and baked by Lise Ferreira at Gourmet Confections was both gorgeous and delicious! Lise is very creative, talented, easy-going and flexible. Her positive attitude makes her a pleasure to work with. And her dedication to perfection makes her cakes stand out. We wanted an entirely gluten-free cake, as the bride has a wheat allergy, however we weren’t willing to compromise on taste. After taste testing the gluten-free cakes of many of the bakers in Upstate New York, we decided that Lise was the only candidate that met our criteria – gluten-free and to die for. On our wedding day, Lise did not disappoint. Her Belgian Dark Chocolate and Pumpkin Spice cake was a huge success with our wedding guests (and us)! We can’t wait to enjoy Lise’s marvelous cake once again when we journey to her bakery on our 1-year anniversary for a complimentary top tier baked fresh!

Lisa was amazing to work with and has a wonderful product. When I first met with her I was very skeptical I have never and I seriously mean never liked a wedding cake in the past! But, now I was getting married and you obviously needed a wedding cake. So I was determined to find a cake that looked nice and tasted delicious and Lisa did just that. I loved every single one of her favors so I ended up going with cupcakes so I could fit more favors into my "wedding cake". At the time I told Lisa that my theme was apples and the center pieces were going to be apples in baskets and she ran with it! My wedding cake was the most amazing looking and tasting cake that I have ever seen! I also received many compliments from the guests at the wedding on the cupcakes and how delicious they were. My sister is getting married a year from me and booked Lisa as well!!
