Gwen made us a beautiful and delicious wedding cake. She was very accommodating to our wishes and was great about recommending cake flavor and filling combinations. She also beautifully arranged fresh flowers on the cake the day of the wedding. Everything was on time and easy. She also did a tasting with us before we selected our flavors.

Gwen was great at meeting with us, providing us with samples and suggestions, and most importantly, the cake both looked great and tasted outstanding! I feel she was greatest value out of the numerous bakeries that we considered and we couldn't be happier with the results.

My husband's parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on August 1, 2013 in Saline, Michigan. We live in Texas; therefore, I had to make arrangements through email for this event. Gwen's Cake Decorating & Etc. not only made a beautiful cake for the occasion, but also delivered it to the location where we had the party. Everyone at the party commented on how beautiful the cake was and how much they enjoyed it. I really appreciate everything Gwen did for me in making this occasion special.

Gwen's cakes taste great! Everyone commented on the flavors and fillings! We choose a very simple design and Gwen made it look very elegant on the cake stand that she loaned to us. My only complaint is that I didn't have the catering staff save us one slice of each flavor and the only piece I got to eat was the piece when we cut the cake!

Gwen was fantastic from the very beginning: from the initial meeting we had, to working with us on the exact cake design and flavors for the big day, execution on the day of, and even provided a delicious 1 year anniversary cake as part of the package. We were very pleased with the wedding cake and delighted with the anniversary cake. I'm not usually a cake person but Gwen's cakes are amazing - the cake itself is the right balance between having substance and fluff, the cream is light and not too sweet, and the filling options I tried were yummy. She will be the first person I call if I ever need a cake in the AA area.

My experience with Gwen was wonderful. My husband and I visited her twice for tasting and finalizing designs and both times were extremely efficient and productive. Her cakes were delicious and moist. Her prices are SO SO reasonable especially for the quality and quantity that you will receive. Our wedding cake turned out exactly as I had envisioned it and we got many compliments on how delicious the cake was. She also provides a complementary one year anniversary cake if you contact her around your anniversary date! Nice touch! I can't wait to have her cake again! It was a great experience.

Gwen did a great job accommodating our requests. We were out of state and she was able to handle everything via e-mail to book. They have a huge variety of flavors and it is charged by slice which is awesome! She took the picture we sent her for designs we liked and she tried to design it very similarly! She called to confirm the day before.

If I could give Gwen a 10/10, that may begin to approach my satisfaction with her services. Finding Gwen made me feel like the luckiest bride in the world, and looking at the pictures months later I'm still amazed at the results.

The Ann Arbor area has a tradition of great food. Also, my grandmother used to make wedding cakes for a living, so I my expectations for the cake were high. Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful. It felt like it represented our event perfectly, and most importantly, it was the best cake I have ever tasted (sorry Grandma!). The frosting melted in my mouth without being too sweet, and we had the freedom to customize the flavor of each layer so everyone got their favorite combination. It was everyone's favorite cake. It was also very reasonably priced.

Gwen's professionalism, her patience, her obvious joy with what she does, her willingness to make us part of the process, and her attention to detail made all of the cake related duties my favorite part of wedding planning, which, if you're a cake lover, is as it should be!

Gwen did an awesome job on our cake. She was very accomidating to meet us on a weekend and helped us narrow down our decision. She also did our rehearsal dinner cake. We got many compliments from our guests. Instead of freezing your top tier for your one year anniversary she makes you a fresh one, thus allowing for full use of the entire cake at the reception (saving money) and real enjoyment of a fresh cake on your anniversary.

Not only was it gorgeous, but it was delicious as well! It was so moist, and the filling was so tasty. Everyone was talking about how good the cake was. Gwen does an exceptional job without charging an arm and a leg. We're excited for our first anniversary cake, that she includes for free!

Our venue actually had a cake place that would have been included in our package, but we didn't love the cake at the tasting, so we decided to look around. We found Gwen's name on the Knot and called to set up a tasting. If you're in doubt, call to set up a tasting - it's so worth it! We had many compliments all night about how good the cake was. (We went with the chocolate cake with chocolate filling and also the white cake with raspberry glaze - so good!)

She had a great experience with her and she recommended Gwen to me for my wedding. I would definitely recommend Gwen to anyone else.

There are plenty of flavors to choose from, and they're all fantastic. We're still getting compliments on how tasty the cake was.

Since she works out of her home, her price is very reasonable. She was also very friendly and easy to work with.

Gwen is amazing. Her cake is the best I have ever tasted. Ever. We decided on cupcakes, had four amazing flavors, and I sent her a picture of the cupcake tier design we wanted, though it was in different colors. She took the design, made it perfect with our colors, had great simplicity, and just got it.

Gwen is amazing. Her cake is the best I have ever tasted. Ever. We decided on cupcakes, had four amazing flavors, and I sent her a picture of the cupcake tier design we wanted, though it was in different colors. She took the design, made it perfect with our colors, had great simplicity, and just got it.

Gwen provided the services as promised and was very flexible with our schedule. We changed our initial meeting date at least once. Then I changed our delivery time for the day of the wedding 3 or 4 times (as it neared the date things got crazy!), and she was willing to accommodate whatever we needed, and arrived in the window we had asked. During our original consultation, she was very helpful in selecting and suggesting something to our liking. We were able to come up with a wonderful combination of flavors and decorations, and tasted some great flavors in the meantime!

When the cake arrived the day of the wedding it was perfect! It was not only elegant and beautiful, but absolutely wonderful in taste! We received many compliments raving about how wonderful the cake was! In fact, I have already provided Gwen's information to a close family friend that really enjoyed the cake so much she wanted her information for a future event of her own.

This was the best cake we had ever tasted and was the best value! Only 2.50 a slice! Not only did they taste great, but our cake was beautiful! It was better than I could have hoped for. People were asking us all night long who had made the cake because it was so yummy! Plus, my husband and i aren't the type of people who save the top and freeze it for a year, and what makes this great is that she gives you a free 1st anniversary cake.

Thanks Gwen!

We needed a cake for 300 people, and Gwen was the perfect person for the job. We met at her house where she had prepared small sample cakes and we got to choose and try different cakes/icings/fillings. My only complaint was that her house smelled like cats, making it a little difficult to enjoy the cake. (plus, I'm very allergic to cats) Otherwise, the cake was great! Gwen supplied pictures, different ideas, and was always happy to make a change at the last minute. Payments were simple, we had a $75 down payment to hold our spot and the rest wasn't due until wedding week. She was very flexible on when we could bring the platter/her supplies back to her. We went on our honeymoon and returned them a week after that. The cakes are exceptional tasting, and also had a unique look to it. I had several comments at my wedding on what a beautiful cake I had, and no one had ever seen one like it. I also had multiple compliments on the taste, people eating up to three or four pieces. Each time we met with Gwen to finalize plans she always had a new kind of cake for us to try, or we were also able to request a flavor. She lets you take home the sample cake too!

Gwen was a joy to work with and very flexible. Her cakes are delicious and moist! We went to a lot of nicer cake vendors and her cakes were definitely the tastiest! Not only were her cakes amazing, but she was definitely the most cost friendly as well. I think I spent a little over $300 for a 3 tiered cake and a grooms cake to feed 150 people and cake stand to rent, and we had TONS leftover. Our guests raved about the cake and loved it - one friend even said that he still dreams about the cake!

I gave her a picture of a cake design and she was able to replicate it almost exactly. She came to set up the cakes (we had a wedding cake and a grooms cake) during our cocktail hour and everything flowed very smoothly. Gwen worked with the venue coordinator to make sure she was on time and to plan the cake delivery. I can't wait to order more cakes in the future from her!

This was the cheapest cake caterer we found in the Ann Arbor area and also the most delicious. At only $2.50 per serving, it was a great deal. The cakes are homemade from scratch with delicious buttercream frosting. We received a whole cake to take home for our flavor tasting - so generous! Gwen did a great job designing our cake based on just a few photos we sent because we lived out of town. It was beautiful and tasty! She was very quick to respond to emails and extremely flexible in finding a time to meet with us for tasting etc. She also provides a free one year anniversary cake as well - another bonus! We couldn't have been happier with her service and the cake!

Gwen's cakes are by far the best wedding cake flavors I've ever had. In fact, I liked her so much I used her for my bridal shower and my grooms cake, too! Beautifully decorated and delicious, and Gwen was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

The details on the cake were supposed to be painted with a metallic finish, but they were just plain white frosting. Otherwise the design was fine. Also, it seemed like she changed her frosting recipe between the tasting and the wedding since it didn't taste quite as good that day.

Our cake was definitely delicious (actually neither my husband or I had a piece at the wedding, but the samples were amazing!). Gwen does a great job of letting you sample any flavors you want, she bakes an entire 6 inch cake for sampling! We had some difficulty with communication, I sometimes felt like she had forgotten about us. The cake looked nice, not exactly what I had pictured but that could be my fault since I didn't ask to see any decorating samples. Overall, I would recommend Gwen for her quality baking and delicious cakes, but if you are looking for an intricate design I'm not sure she would be the bext choice.

While my husband and I LOVED the dessert platters, and all of our guest gushed about how amazing the cupcakes, cookies, and pastries were our cake was sad. The taste of the cake was 5 star quality but the presentation of it was not what we paid for. We had asked for a cream colored cake, with wasabi colored beading, and floral and fern decorations on one spot at the bottom (we even gave her a picture of exactly what we wanted). What we got was a plain white cake with Kelly green (so green that it dyed our teeth, which was a concern I had voiced that I didn't want) squiggles in 3 spots on the sides of the cake. Again the cupcakes and other little desserts were amazing and beautiful but I wouldn't buy another cake from Gwen since presentation is extremely important to me.

I met with Gwen in September for a cake tasting and was simply delighted with the quality of her cakes. I immediately put down my deposit and secured our wedding date for the following June. I made repeated attempts to contact Ms. Briston and was very frustrated at her very leisurely attempts to call me back. I fail to understand how a business can successfully operate without answering the phone between the hours of 9am-5pm. It was not until 2 weeks before the wedding that she finally got in touch with me and made excuses, almost blaming me, as to why she had been unable to return my calls. On the day of the wedding I was very dissatisfied with the presentation of the cakes. She did not share my vision, despite several phone calls and multiple emails including detailed pictures of what I was expecting. I ordered a sheet cake to be half cherry and half vanilla, but apparently Ms. Briston forgot so she supplied me with a full cherry sheet cake and a full vanilla sheet cake, but failed to decorate the cherry cake. The cake tasted good and in fact received many compliments, but Ms. Briston's less than desirable professionalism and poor phone etiquette left much to be desired. I would not recomment these services.

We are sorry for your disappointment. A full sheet cake was ordered, with 1/2 of it french vanilla and 1/2 of it cherry and this is what was provided (these are two cakes). These are kitchen cakes for extra cake and are not decorated. We did return your phone calls; there was a message that was broken up and we were unable to hear the message or get the phone number. Since it was a backyard wedding, we were given a very simple design, somewhat rustic looking and we decorated the cake as per discussion with the bride how she wanted it decorated. Thank you.

The cupcakes turned out with just white icing that looked like they were made by grade schoolers and then were handled very lousy such that the smudges on the icing are so obvious the first time you look at the display. The pictures I sent her had flower decoration on each cupcake and that's what I asked and all I got were ugly plain-looking cupcakes. The top cake had a few designs on it that looked very unfinished and we had asked for fresh strawberry cream filling and it had strawberry jelly instead. She was generous on providing sample cakes in the beginning but did not deliver on the big day. Prices were very good but the quality of the cakes and the design were not.

The hotel provided a very small table for the cupcake display and moved the cupcakes from one location to another after delivery. The cupcakes were in perfect shape, no smudges when we left the hotel.

i was very unhappy with the service. she lost our agreement, did the wrong cake fillings, did not pay attention to details like we wanted the layers offset.
