The cake was amazing, tasted great, and looked beautiful, but she was mean to me. She literally made me cry, and was almost accusatory.

Kathy's Kakes, LLC responded with the following comments:

I'm very sorry that you were uncomfortable and cried during the appointment when you found out that you couldn't have a relative make your sheet cakes. I was also extremely uncomfortable and felt very bad for you. When your mother made the appointment she mentioned sheet cakes being made by a relative. I was very clear about our policy of no outside sheet cakes being allowed. She assured me it wouldn't be a problem to have the sheet cakes provided by us, so I was surprised when you didn't know. We've worked very hard to build an excellent reputation and won't risk it being damaged by cakes from another source.

Kathy was great to work with. Her cakes are amazing and she has a bunch of flavors to choose from. She was always timely when responding to my emails. We met about a month before the wedding to finalize the design of the cake and a few days later I changed my mind. Kathy was perfectly happy with meetibg again to discuss the changes. The cakes looked and tasted amazing!!!

Kathy was amazing. We got so many compliments on our wedding cakes. We had our big cake, a grooms cake, sheet cakes, and cake balls. The cake balls are amazing. I was so impressed and happy with how our wedding cakes turned out. She did an awesome job and met with me as many times as I needed. Very wonderful lady to work with.

We found Kathy online. During our initial meeting, Kathy treated us to some very tasty cup cakes with delicious frosting. She helped us choose the cake we needed (the right size and price for us). We ordered a 4-tier cake; it was setup on time, it looked great, and it was very tasty. We were very happy with our choice: we liked Kathy and we liked her cake. We would definitely recommend her.

Our cake was GORGEOUS! I showed her a picture from The Knot magazine and she made a beautiful replica for us. I thought it looked even better than the one in the magazine! Her gumpaste flowers were awesome and the taste of the cake itself? Fantastic! I heard so many compliments from my guests about how delicious it was. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to a bride!

Kathy is the most amazing baker. I showed her a picture of my dress (it had red flowers on it) and she copied the pattern of my dress onto the cake in red frosting. It was gorgeous.
