Kathleen did a great job on our ccake. I was blown away at all of the options at the cake tasting and she was very easy to get ahold off if I had questions. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a cake.

We love, love, loved our wedding cake! Kathy makes the BEST cake I've had. So super moist and the buttercream frosting was perfect. Together with Kathy we designed the wedding cake of my dreams and we were very impressed when we saw it. She also did an amazing job with the groom's cake I surprised my hubby with. It was decorated in Red Wings complete with the octopus on top and looked super impressive. I fully recommend KJ's Confections for any baked needs - she is absolutely wonderful!!! She even makes an entire pan of various mini cupcakes to sample and delivers to your house! Just superb service!

My daughter's cake turned out absolutely beautiful and delicious! Kathy is very detailed oriented and made a gorgeous cake for her wedding. She had different look on each tier which can be tricky and possibly ruin a cake, but Kathy made it flow together perfectly. It looked like a cake out of a magazine. The flavors and texture of her cakes are awesome. We had a different flavor on each tier, which our guests loved! I would highly recommend KJ's Confections to anyone looking for a unique and delicious wedding cake.

Kathy and her team are amazing. They provided our wedding cake and favors of gourmet caramel apples. The cake was beautiful. Kathy works hand in hand with you in designing the perfect cake. The bride, my daughter is gluten -free and Kathy makes the best gluten free cake we have ever eaten. The caramel apples - order extra to take home they are amazing.

I didn't want to do a cake or even cupcakes for my wedding...I had fallen in love with Cake Pops and thought they would be a fun and yummy idea for a wedding (instead of trying to eat an entire slice of cake...you could just had a biteful or multiple bitefuls...one cake pop or 20!). It proved challenging at first to find someone who was doing cake pops in our wedding area. Thankfully, my AMAZING wedding planner (Beautiful Day Planning) found Kathleen at KJ's and the rest was...a cake walk! We went in for a "tasting" and were blown away with how yummy the cake pops were! Kathleen was so friendly and down-to-earth and fun to chat with, and was willing to make pretty much any flavor of cake pop we wanted. She worked with us to create awesome Cake Pop centerpieces, and we had such a great variety at the wedding. People could NOT stop raving about them! Kathleen also does regular cakes and cupcakes and if they are HALF as delicious as our cake pops, you'll be thrilled!

If you are to work with this vendor, however, you have to be very flexible and patient. At times, Kathy was very hard to a get a hold of, which very much added to the stress of the overall wedding process.

Loved the cake. It was made to our specifications and very beautiful to the point of fusing jack skeleington and tinkerbell together in perfect harmony. I have never met a more professional baker even in the midst of moving locations she kept her professionalism intact and delivered the cake and set it up exactly the way we wanted it.

P.S. the white chocolate curls mixed in with the cherry filling was heavenly

I would highly recommend Kathleen. I found a cake in bridal cake magazine that I fell in love with. She was able to replicate the cake exactly and stayed within my budget. She also recreated a cake topper at the last minute from a picture that I sent her, for 1/3 of the price another vendor wanted to charge. How awesome is that!

Her flavors are to die for, my guest especially loved the Boston Cream. My husband and I loved the Black Forest.

If you are planning a wedding this year, you have to schedule a tasting with Kathleen. You won't be sorry!

KJ's Confections offer a variety of options. We had ordered cupcakes for our wedding. They did a wonderful job setting everything up, the cupcakes tasted amazing as well as the cutting cake. The owner made sure that everything was personalized and took the time to get to know us. The tasting was a wonderful experience. We were very happy with KJ's Confections and definitely recommend them.
