Sharon and her team were great. Their prices are awesome. It took awhile but Sharon and her team (for the first time ever) made my key lime flavored mini cupcakes for my wedding and everyone loved them!!! Everyone loved the 3 flavors they did for our cupcakes. Sharon's display for our 3 towers of cupcakes was so amazing. I cried when I saw the outstanding job they did! The presentation wowed! I can't wait for my free one year anniversary cake, to retaste their awesome cake!

Since this was my second marriage I wanted something differant. I went with cupcakes. We were invited to Sharons for a tasting of cakes. I told her what I wanted and had many things to choose from. I also had a family member who had Sharons bake many birthday cakes, so I know her cakes were very good. When we went for the tasting she presented us a plate of mini cupcakes of all flavors. After choosing the 3 flavors we wanted, she let us take home the remainder of cakes! She also stated her mom had collected salt and pepper shakers and asked us to pick the pair we would like! Now we have something to always remember the day! After that I didnt have to worry about anything! The presentation was beautiful and everyone loved the cupcakes and flavors!

Sharon was very nice and helpful. She had several books for us to look through to get ideas, and she also looked at some clippings I had brought. She had some flavors for us to taste at our meeting. She also hosted a open house where you could come and taste all her flavors and fillings. Her pricing was reasonable, and they also offer a free one year anniversary cake. I loved my cake and it was exactly what I wanted. She also did my groom's cake and it came out fabulous too. I especially like her red velvet cake.

I actually didnt get a piece of my own wedding cake :(
But from EVERYONE, the cake was delicious.
I loved the fact that we were able to do a different flavor for every layer, so everyone got something different.
And their prices were really good too!!

Sharon is amazing!

First of all, her cakes are out-of-this-world. We chose three flavors: lemon w/ lemon curd filling, carrot w/ buttercream, and red velvet w/ buttercream. All were great, especially the lemon. It was a hard choice- she has tons of options and everything is great. Check her website for tasting events!

Second, she's a character- funny and really sweet. She gave us hugs and congrats when we saw her on our big day!

Third, she's so helpful in the planning. We had no idea what was doable cake-wise, and she has tons of samples to browse and is capable of doing pretty much whatever. We ended up going with something very simple and elegant, and the cakes turned out exactly how we discussed.

Finally, the price was right. We priced out multiple vendors and she made the most sense economically. We had three separate cakes (a 75 person event) and it came out around $350. So worth it!

I can't say enough good stuff about Sharon!

She was amazing, her cakes were amazing! My cake turned out beautiful, and tasted great! Another great thing about Sharon's is that instead of having to take the top of your cake and save it for a year she bakes you a new one and you can pick it up before your first anniversary. Sharon works out of her home in Crete and when you go in there she makes you feel like you have known her for years! She is wonderful and I highly recommend her!

Sharon was not even on my radar but my mom ran across a gift certificate for a Wedding Cake from her in a charity silent auction. Come to find out she also did the cake for my cousin's wedding as well as that of my bridesmaid and her sister. We went to the wedding open house, which I highly recommend. You can taste most every filling, frosting and cake type they offer and she has loads of pictures to look through. I was unsure of what to expect but she really has a great range of traditional to contemporary and trendy styles and she was totally patient as I changed my mind several times. We chose a different type of cake for every layer and one of my favorite things that she does is that you can cut up the cake topper at your wedding because on your 1 year anniversary you receive a complimentary FRESH cake of your choice. When you book her as your vendor she has you self address a post card that she sends out as a reminder. Our guests all loved the cake choices and said it was delish, which we already knew from the open house but agreed with nonetheless. The cake was awesome looking too! It was beige frosting with brown swirly and dot decorations that were slightly different on each layer (this matched the BM dresses, beige with a brown sash, as well as the stationary for the wedidng, etc). She was also already familiar with my reception site and knew the rules and timing issues that went along with it. Bottom line, the service and the cake were both terrific! The price reflects the actual price of the cake for about 200 people but my mom won it in a silent auction so our actual cost was a little different.
