Jutta did a fantasic job with our wedding cake! We had a very unique Mario themed cake which we custom designed with her in her bakery several months before the wedding. The day of it came out exactly as we dreamed, but better! And it tasted great too... our only regret is not being able to eat more the day of... so we plan on contacted her again for an anniversary cake next summer :)

I was setup with La Joconde through Vibrant tables and Events, I worked with Jutta on the cake design and flavors. I found a cake that I loved online and sent Jutta the picture. They helped us get the design of the cake I loved with in our budget. The cake came out beautifully and tasked great! They responded quickly to me via email and were very understanding to any questions that I had.

When we started the quest for the perfect wedding cake, we scoped out several different options. Choosing La Joconde was possibly the easiest decision we had to make throughout the entire planning process! We were literally scraping off the cake crumbles at the tasting- the flavors were out of this world!! Not only are the flavors creative, and the perfect texture, but the variety guarantees there is something (or somethings!) for everyone. La Joconde is extremely talented in designs as well so if you already have an image in mind, they will do it just right and better. Working with them was a real treat.

I found Jutta by accident.....clicking link after link after link, and there her cake was. After finding her website, and looking at the beauty of her cakes, I decided I wanted to use her, her designs were what I envisioned my wedding cake to look like.

Living in the deep south, I wrangled two of my girlfriends to do the cake testing for me. They had a fabulous time, and Jutta had them try multiple flavors. After much deliberation, I selected her chocolate/hazelnut/carmel cake, and her white cake with lemon/pears infused with lavender. Let me tell you, I am not a cake person, but the following day, I had cake for breakfast.

Jutta's cake was super moist, and the flavors were light and delicate. I think with modern cakes, the issue is they are too sweet. Jutta's was not; therefore, cake for breakfast was the best thing!

The design of the cake was beautiful. It was exactly as I had hoped it would look. Soft, elegent, and beautiful. I am so thrilled with how the cake turned out, and I am so glad, Jutta had time in her schedule to create this masterpiece for my wedding day.

Thank you, Jutta!

Beautiful, delicious cake, and Jutta was so fun and easy to work with! My now-husband and I went into our cake tasting without the slightest idea of what we wanted, which could have been disastrous--however, with just a few straightforward questions, Jutta designed a simple, yet elegant cake that we loved. We chose a different flavor for each layer, and she was very accomodating when our guest list expanded past our original expectations. The leftover cake in our fridge makes me very happy.....

Amazing!!! You can't go wrong when working with Jutta! She is so talented, and she really works to share the vision of the bride. I came with an idea in my head...I wanted white background with orange tones of paisley stenciled work. She found the stencil and the cake looked BEAUTIFUL...plus it tasted great!

Jutta made an amazing wedding cake for us on really short notice. She was able to copy the design I requested perfectly and even added a couple other details that I didn't think would ever fit in our budget! The only complaint I have is that our cake was slightly dry. That was sort of a bummer because I know guests really look forward to cake... I do, anyway!

Jutta is wonderful. We met with her to design an unusual cake request: a Norwegian kransekake and four smaller cakes for our wedding of 200. The cake flavors she had prepared for us to sample were all dreamy (lavender soaked pear , lemon raspberry, chocolate mocha, brown sugar bourbon, and several others, each covered in perfect European-style buttercream). Her cakes aren't as sweet as most cakes (European style), and the flavors are exquisite. After choosing our flavors, we explained our visual ideas and with a few artful color pencil strokes, she'd sketched my vision exactly. The cakes were amazing the day of and looked exactly like we'd imagined (decorated only with elegantly textured buttercreams and fresh flowers).
