We had the most beautiful cake! We did a snowflake motif and Nancy hand made tons of snowflakes to go on our cake including this gorgeous 3-D snowflake topper. Plus the cake inside was delicious and we got so many compliments on it. She brought us so many types of cakes and fillings to try then brought us even more when we were starting to decide what combinations we wanted. Plus she constantly throws in extra things here and there. For instance a whole big extra cake that we used at the post rehearsal dinner get together for out of town guests because my husband is in the military. She can be a little scatter-brained but it is just because she is working so incredibly hard all the time. Everything was perfect and my cake was more amazing then I could have ever imagined. Plus the price was so reasonable. We went with shorter layers and had cake for 150 for just over $400. She just charges per person not by what you want on the outside so we did not get charged extra for all the snowflakes she made for the outside. I wish I could attach a photo because our cake was so amazing. Use Nancy Best!

HI Nancy!!

Me and Joe really thought you were an exceptionally nice person. For our first meeting we were drilling you about your services because we wanted to ensure we got the right person. You were so professional and kind. When we did the sampling I could not believe what you did for us! You provided 3 different types of fondant to try. 3 frosting flavors, and several different cakes to try. We were floored at how much cake you gave us. We had a hard time deciding on a flavor because they were all good. We wanted a cake that was affordable, yummy and very beautiful. Your carrot cake and lemon cake was super moist and very good. Thanks for doing all the different combinations for our wedding cake. Our guests stated, "wow, that cake was good." I loved the look of our cake, and the quality. You truly are a remarkable person and I will miss talking with you. You have a heart for this business and I can see that you love what you do. Thanks again for providing us with a great cake. In the future, you will be hearing from me so you can make me another yummy cake!!
I wished they had a way to upload pictures so people can see what you did for my wedding. it was such an elegant cake.
Love Monica & Joseph

Nancy was amazing! She is very friendly and her cakes are awesome! We had centerpiece cakes at each table which consisted of three different types of cake and we also had a two tier cake for the head table and the cake cutting ceremony. All of the cakes were amazing! All of our guests enjoyed the cakes and commented on how great they were. The designs were simple but beautiful and the prices were very reasonable. She was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her!

I worked in a bakery for many years, making me kind of a pastry snob. I wanted a great tasting cake. Future-wife put me in charge of finding the baker. I found Nancy. Nancy was absolutely awesome! Our cake was delicious, looked great, and complimented my face rather well if I might say so myself. (Thanks wifey.) Anyway, as I guy I loved the food tastings - especially all the cake shops. Hands down Nancy blew her competition out of the water, her cake is moist and flavorful. This pastry snob wants his cakes made by Nancy Best. Thanks Nancy!

Nancy Best, is absolutly hands down the best cake I've ever head. She has so many cake flavers, fillings and frosting options. It's almost overwhelming, but very delicous and fun process. She's super open and willing to do whatever your heart desires. She drove down to Loveland to meet with us (we live in Fort Collins). Each time was a wonderful expereince. She brought her cake samples book along for the initial meeting. She also has lots of pics on her website. I basically drew up the design idea I had at home and met with her another time to confirm the details. She provided us with many samples to taste two different times. The first tasting she has a bunch of cake flavors and filling that we were allowed to take home and try when we were ready. We loved them ALL which made it though to narrow down our fav's. The 2nd tasting she made a mini cake that reflected the design of the big cake. So very cool to see your different options and get a little preview! One of the best things about her cakes is that with each cake tier you can have up to 3 different cake flavors and two different fillings. So when they cut the cake, you get to try all of those great flavors! I just have to share with you our incredible combo's we ended up with. Guests LOVE to have this kind of variety. My husband and I didnt even make it two weeks with our anniversary cake being frozen. We already eat it because it's too good to waste. We're ordering another cake for our anniversary :)

Combo 1 (Bottom):
1. Black Chocolate Cake
2. Chocolate Truffle Filling
3. Kahlua Cake
4. Maple Butter Cream Filling
5. Hazelnut Cake

Combo 2 (Middle):
1. White Angel Food Cake
2. White Chocolate Raspberry Filling
3. Poppy Seed Cake

5. Lemon Cake

Combo 3 (Top):

First of all i have to say Nancy is one of the nicest ladies i have ever met. She was very pleasant to work with. She was very hard to get a hold of thought, I would suggest calling her because she never responded to any of my emails. I met with her once a few months before the wedding and then called her about 2 months before to touch base and she didnt even remember metting with me the first time. I had to meet with her again to tell her what I wanted again because she didnt remember. I got a topsy turvy cake and she did a very nice job, the only thing i didnt like was the middle tier because the vertical stripes were a little wobbley and croocked looking, but i was probably the only person that noticed. The cake tasted wonderful and she has so many different options.

Like most of her clients, things with Nancy started out wonderfully. She is indeed a very kind and sweet soul. The problem stemmed when I was clueless about the process of ordering a cake and knowing exactly what we wanted, and she was less than helpful. She let several months go by with no contact and then I called her about a month away from the wedding to touch base and she basically told me that she wasn't prepared to do my cake anymore, she didn't have enough info and that it was entirely my fault. I don't have time to go into details, but she was very frustrated with me, and maybe she had reason to be, but I was trying to be very nice and as helpful as I could throughout the entire process. That first phone call made me so upset that I didn't want anything to do with her. My husband said he would take care of it and called her. He said she was crying and felt so awful and that she said she "had a long talk with her cats" about the situation and really wanted to call me and apologize (which she never did do) and that she just wanted us to have a great cake. So we went ahead and met with her again, I gave her a check for a deposit. She was very short with us and all of her previous sweetness was out the window. We were just confused and never did figure out what went wrong to send her into bi-polar-land. The day of the wedding when she was delivering the cakes, she came to my mom and demanded another check to replace the previous one because she had lost it (she finally found it weeks later and randomly deposited it), and my mom said she was not very nice and quite short with her as well. In her defense, I found out later that she did come to the rescue with some back-up cakes (we had mini-cakes for everyone) when a few were dropped at a table during set-up. She lives very close and had some more in her fridge, which was very helpful. Also, you can't beat her prices. There's no way we would have gotten such a nice product (not perfection but quite nice decorating, especially since she had to do so many little cakes, about 80 of them) for the price we did anywhere else. Overall, Nancy was very moody with us, I wouldn't recommend her except for the fact that we seemed to have a uniquely poor experience. It seems that most others have a good experience with Nancy, and that's great. Maybe we were just the problem! Either way I feel like a good vendor never tries to go out of their way to make you feel bad or mad about anything.
