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.

Nancy is WONDERFUL!! She is someone that you can tell Genuinely LOVES what she does, and she loves to work outside of the box. She even encouraged us to design out own cake -- which we did and it was intricate and she nailed it! Not only does her cake taste great -- she makes them look great too! She is very, very talented!! :)
If you want a cake that looks and tastes great -- this is the place to go to!

Nancy was very accomadating to us. She brought lots of samples to our home for us to try, and all were delicious!

She was late the day of, I asked her to be there by 4pm, and she showed up at 5pm (and told her should could get there as early as 11am). that made me very nervous! the cake was delicious and all of our guests liked it. She responds better to calls rather than email. For what you get her cost is very low.

I really cannot speak enough about Nancy. My only issue was that I wouldn't receive response to my emails and calls, BUT, when I did get ahold of Nancy, she had heard my calls/read my emails and was all caught up, just hadn't gotten back to me. I used Nancy through a wedding package and we were given a $400 credit, and she basically said "I'll do anything you guys want, don't worry about pricing". My husband and i decided we wanted to really push the envelope and wanted a Mr. and Ms. Pacman wedding cake. Nancy had never seen or played pac man, so I sent her countless images and ideas and tried to get the idea of the game across so she could turn it into cake. I left it up to her for the most part, and we couldn't have been any happier. The cake was whimsical, cute, and still classy and wedding-appropriate. We got so many compliments- I can't recommend her highly enough!

Communication was our only little problem. It takes a little while for Nancy to return phone calls but I promise it's worth it. Our cake was so perfect people thought it was fake and the real one was in the back. She did EXACTLY what we asked for and ours was complicated. Not only that but the cake tasted to wonderful. Everything went so well with Nancy, she's willing to do pretty much any thing you need or want on your cake. She is VERY friendly and so sweet.

Nancy was extremely pleasant to work with and had outstanding cake. If I would have reviewed her prior to the day of our wedding I would have given her 5 stars. However, the day of my wedding, or should I say right before our reception was to start, there was no cake! She had FORGOT to make our cake! We had NO wedding cake for our wedding. We had met with her several times prior to the event and had no problems. How things changed. Not only did we not have wedding cake, she didn't have the decency to come inside and speak with us in person. Plus, the sheet cake that was brought in to help the situation was awful, it was old and not something we could serve to our guests. Nancy was extremely apologetic and even gave us some pleasant "gifts" during our honeymoon. However, no matter how many apology's given, we will never be able to get that day back. I would have really liked to have seen my cake and had my guest enjoy it.

Nancy did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. She was a pleasure to work with and a breath of fresh air compared to other wedding vendors. I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends who get married.

I also really especially appreciate the groom's cake she did. She went to a lot of trouble to get details right at the last minute. The cake was a huge hit at the wedding!

Nancy of Nancy Best Cake Design - A+. We took here a picture of a cake we say at a Food Network cake competition. Even though it had some design elements she had never done before, she made our dream cake to the T. And the flavors were great! Our guests are still commenting on it!
