Linda created our wedding cake and we had a great experience working with her. She was super organized, prompt to our tasting, and had incredible flavors and designs to choose from. Her pricing was very reasonable and she was easy to work with throughout the whole process. The cake turned out beautiful and the design was exactly as we imagined. She even placed our cake topper, worked with our florist to place fresh flowers on our cake, and coordinated the set up time with our venue - I didn't have to worry about a thing. The cake tasted fresh and moist, and our guests were raving about the strawberry shortcake with fresh strawberries. Thank you Linda!

All I can say is Yum!! We ordered 5 different flavors of cupcakes and had a small anniversary cake that my husband and I could cut. Not only were the cupcakes some of the best we had but Linda came to us for the tasting and she was 1/3 of the price of the other vendors we met with. Everyone raves about the cupcakes and how delicious they were. People were telling us they are about 2 or 3 cupcakes. We should've ordered more! Linda was great to work with and we are happy that we chose her as our cupcake and cake vendor.

Linda was great to work with for our wedding cake from start to finish. We meet with her in the beginning and she let us sample pretty much every cake flavor and icing for free. We changed the design of our cake a few times but she was very flexible and ultimately went with a textured cake with fresh flowers. Although I was a little hesitant at first with more of her intricate cakes, ours turned out beautiful and better than I imagined! The cake and icing itself tasted great and there is nothing I would have changed about it. If you are looking for a simple style wedding cake I would defiantly recommend Linda! She was so helpful and very reasonably priced.

Linda's cake is absolutely delicious!!!! She is also very reasonably priced for our area. I absolutely LOVED that we could choose a different flavor for each tier of our cake at no additional cost. I also appreciated her professional input on how much cake to order to avoid having too much extra cake left over at the end of the night (I hate always seeing so much cake go to waste!) Linda was friendly and very professional throughout the entire process. My cake was truly beautiful and exactly the vision I had! It also tasted GREAT! My only complaint and the reason she is not a perfect 5 stars is that one of our cake tiers was the wrong flavor! We originally wanted the third tier to be red velvet, but then changed our minds to an almond cake with peanut butter creme filling. This change was confirmed via email months before the wedding and I never gave it a second thought. Then at the wedding, I was served a piece of red velvet cake! It was delicious -- but it was not what we had ordered. However, everything else was flawless so it would not keep me from recommending Linda whole-heartedly.

Linda is amazing! It was so hard to choose flavors during the tasting because all were so good! We went with fun-fetti, red velvet and lemon with strawberry filling. All were amazing! The cakes were beautiful we did a traditional wedding cake with red roses cascading down and a grooms cake that was a replica of my husbands truck with our dogs made out of fondant in the back of the truck throwing a little mud onto the wedding cake! It was a huge hit with our guests and beautifully done! Better than we imagined!

Linda was awesome! She worked with my budget and was able to create the cake of my dreams plus a surprise grooms cake! Her service was also excellent. She came to my house for the cake tasting and consultation and it was so quick and convenient! The cakes looked great and were delicious! I highly recommend her services and I will be using her again when I need a professional cake.

Linda brought my vision to life for our very unique wedding cake and cupcakes. She was absolutely wonderful to work with - very professional, responsive, and accommodating. And the cake/cupcakes were to die for! Everyone raved about how delicious they tasted and how amazing they looked. And to top it off, Linda was one of the most affordable options I could have ever asked for.

I can be very critical when it comes to creative services (decorated cakes/cupcakes, photography, etc) and Linda completely exceeded my expectations. Can't say anything but great things! I hope to have the need to work with Linda again!

We absolutely LOVED the wedding cake that Linda made for us. The whole experience with her was great. When we first met with her she brought a box full of cake and icing samples for us to try. She was very patient with us as we thought about each flavor and combination. Once we decided to book with her, we narrowed down our flavor choices. She even allows you to make each cake layer a different flavor at no extra charge! Her pricing is extremely reasonable and definitely beats competitor pricing. Linda's decorating skill is wonderful too. She had us provide a couple of inspiration photos and she created the exact cake we were dreaming of! It was beautiful and delicious!! We definitely recommend Just Desserts by Linda!
