We went to multiple cake tastings and even put a deposit at another vendor. The previous vendor's cakes were okay, but really too sweet. My new mother-in-law thought we could do better. She found Kathy through a friend. Kathy is a delight to work with, and her cakes were by far the best we found. The tastes were full and distinguishable, and very elegant for the occasion. She help tease out a design at our first meeting, and included a nice drawing of the cake with the contract. The whole process was enjoyable.

We plan on getting a fresh cake next year for our anniversary.

We can't thank Kathy enough for such a wonderful wedding cake.

Kathy was amazing to work with. She listened to all my ideas and suggested things when I didn't have any. She was quick to respond to emails as I was planning my wedding from across the country, and made it very easy to do so. Set up on the day of way was perfect- I didn't even know she was there and the cake was everything I could have dreamed of. My guests even said it was the best tasting wedding cake they have ever had (and I agree!). I would recommend Kathy to anyone looking for a reasonably priced and an amazing wedding cake.

We recently were married on 9/7/2013. The cake was beautiful & delicious and Kathy was very nice to work with! She had great ideas, was very friendly and professional, and her prices were lower than all of the other vendors I came across in the area. I would recommend her to any friends/family who is searching for a wedding cake!

Simply Desserts by Kathy was definitely the right choice for baking my wedding cake, and I am so glad that I chose her! We actually met with several other companies for cake tastings and left each appointment disappointed with either the quality of the cakes that we tasted or the expensive price for what we would consider to be a relatively basic wedding cake (circle tiers, buttercream frosting, no decorations). When we met with Kathy, we knew that we wanted to book her as our cake baker. She conducts business out of her residence, so don't let that throw you off during the initial consultation! Kathy's cakes are absolutely delicious and really taste homemade unlike some other companies with whom we had cake tastings. She has a huge variety of cake flavor choices, too. We ended up choosing a four-tiered almond with chocolate ganache and raspberry preserves cake. Kathy was very flexible, too, allowing us to modify part of our contract (change the top tier to having a cake topper instead of fresh flowers and also to use our venue's cake stand instead of renting one from her) only a few weeks before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, we literally heard from the majority of guests about how awesome the cake was. When my husband and I saw it when we entered our reception, it was absolutely beautiful! It looked like it was made out of fondant, but was actually buttercream. Kathy also coordinated with our florist to apply fresh flowers to the layers of the cake and also around the base of the cake. The cake was absolutely delicious and I am so happy with our decision to choose Kathy as one of our vendors. Kathy included instructions for freezing the top tier of our cake for our anniversary, which I also thought was a nice touch. We would highly recommend Kathy to anyone!!! The price for the cake was incredibly reasonable, and it turned out absolutely beautiful!!

Simply Desserts is absolutely incredible. We knew upon the first meeting that Kathy was the one to make our wedding cake. We came up with a design together and she went above and beyond, perfectly matching our colors and creating the most beautiful palm trees and beading throughout. It was without a doubt the cake of our dreams. She's incredible responsive and works with you throughout the whole process, available for questions and anything you need. She made the most amazing groomscake for my husband as well and it was a hit. She is so very creative. Her costs are really fair and her quality is impeccable. The flavors options are endless and they are just the right amount of sweet, not too sweet but perfect. We went with a lemon strawberry filling for one layer, and a amaretto raspberry for another layer...fantastic combinations. I can't say enough about Kathy at Simply Desserts. Go to her!

Kathy is AWESOME!!! Her cakes and flavors are unique and sooooo sooooo tasty!!

We booked her about two weeks before our wedding and she was able to accommodate without blinking. It took forever to find just the right baker because we had so many problems with our other options. The biggest issue with just about every place we went (we went to five different vendors...) was that they either wanted tons of money for a small cake or tons of money for a cake that was mediocre in taste. While other vendors may have had great design sense all of them lacked heavily in the taste department.--Not Kathy at Simply Desserts!

Her flavors are simply fabulous and her designs are equally stunning. We already had the design of the cake and gave her some leeway into placement of certain elements on our cake. When we finally saw it at the reception we were FLOORED. It was beyond what we could imagine, very very neatly done, matched our decor PERFECTLY and was truly stunning with large handmade gumpaste flowers as a topper. We had a 4 tier, custom cake, each with different flavors! Our guests were RAVING and going back for seconds and thirds. lol.

Please, if you're looking for a cake vendor that has both style and taste (literally and figuratively!)--get in touch with Simply Desserts!

Simply Desserts was wonderful to work with and made an AMAZING cake. Her prices are very affordable in comparison to other companies and is willing to work within a budget. We got a chocolate layer and then a spice layer. Kathy was very helpful in helping to create design of cake. We only met in person once but that was all we needed. She took the time to help us with a design and did a beautiful job decorating. Kathy calls back to emails/ calls in a professional business time frame. Wedding cake was delivered on time and looking beautiful, we got many compliments on the taste and moistness. Brides & Grooms- Don't forget to eat cake at your wedding as we did!

Kathy from Simply Desserts was fabulous! My husband and I attended several cake tastings. However, she was the only vendor who took time to learn about us and our vision. While I had some ideas as to what design we wanted, she shared her creativity and helped to really shape the final design. She grabbed her pencil while we were talking and made a sketch on the spot. So, we left our initial consultation with a hand-drawn picture of the cake. Later on I wanted to make a few changes, and she was very accomodating to my requests. Let me just tell you that I was blown away when I entered the reception hall to see the cake for the first time. It was absolutely perfect. It was gorgeous and had a great taste. One thing you'll love about Kathy is that she doesn't encourage you to purchase more cake than you'll really need. Her prices are fantastic and she doesn't disappoint. We look forward to seeing her again next year when we return to pick up our anniversary cake.

Her prices are much more affordable than other bigger companies and we appreciated the time she spent with us at the tasting discussing design ideas.

Our wedding cake was amazing! We had been to four other bakers and tested cake samples before finding Kathy. As soon as we bit into the cake samples we both looked at each other and had huge grins on our faces - there was no comparison. We ended up going with half strawberry shortcake and half tiramisu - unconventional but absolutely mouthwatering. Kathy also had all the more traditional combinations. She offered by far the most extensive list of cake options (it was almost overwhelming) and let us select 3-4 to taste. They were all fantastic. She was also very flexible, extremely professional and efficient, and very well organized. As your cake provider is someone you'll likely never see the day of your wedding, you want to trust that they are competent to deliver the cake and decorate it appropriately (fresh flowers that we provided in our case) and make sure it is where it needs to be on time. Kathy was fantastic

Absolutely the most scrumptious wedding cake ever!!

We met Kathy based on a recommendation from of our wedding planner and we are SO glad that she did! After coming from a horrible consultation with the rude staff at Sugar Bakers in Catonsville, MD, Kathy's professional demeanor and upbeat personality instantly put us at ease. We brought pictures to the consultation of some cake design ideas and she was so receptive to our wishes. We were impressed that she didn't try to copy our photos but instead took the pictures we provided and our wedding inspiration (1930s Harlem Renaissance glamour) and totally reinterpreted it into a fabulous wedding cake. We were absolutely blown away when we entered the reception venue and saw our stunning wedding cake. Kathy truly exceeded everything that we could have hoped for!
And the best part - THE CAKE TASTED AMAZING! I have some serious bakers in my family and they, among our other guests, are still raving about how great the cake tasted!!

Kathy can rest assured that we will be using her services for many years to come. Since the wedding, I've bought a birthday cake for my husband and a cake for the Christmas holiday. If you want not only a beautiful cake but one that also tastes great, then I definitely recommend Simply Desserts.

Kathy did an amazing job on our wedding cake. She has an enormous variety of cake flavors and fillings. It was almost too much to choose from! The tasting we had with her was great. We had a tasting with a larger bakery and felt rushed and like we were not valued customers. Kathy gave us her undivided attention and made the tasting really fun. Obviously, the most important thing (in my opinion, at least) is the taste. Every sample we tried was DELICIOUS. Again, after doing a tasting at a more prominent bakery, I thought Kathy's cakes and frosting were MUCH tastier than everything else we tried. The cake was also decorated beautifully. We had a special request for Kathy to make gum paste versions of our rather non-traditional flowers and she did a great job. I also thought the price was completely reasonable. I honestly don't have a single complaint about our cake. Deciding to use Kathy as our baker was one of the easiest decisions we made while planning our wedding. I only wish I had eaten more cake on our wedding day! Thanks, Kathy!

Choice of vendor is everything in planning a wedding. We were fortunate to choose outstanding vendors. Although your cake is supposed to be beautiful, make sure people actually want to eat it. That is how we chose Kathy. The cake was so good we had it served as dessert at our reception (a good way to save a few pennies). We went to several cake tastings and hers was the best.

The cake for our wedding was absolutely incredible! The cake was moist and light, and the icing was perfect. I don't like icing that is too sweet and when I tried the cakes by Simply Desserts it was light and delicious! Our wedding was in October, and Kathy suggested that we do a Spice cake as one of the flavors -- INCREDIBLE! We alternated the tiers with Spice Cake and White Almond, and the guests of our wedding kept going back for more. I found Simply Desserts on a whim (because our reception site did not have an in house baker) and it was one of the best venders we worked with throughout our wedding year. Kathy is wonderful to work with, was interested in getting to know us as a couple, and was so responsive during the whole process. You will not be disappointed! We will definitely be using her in the future!

Also for the tasting she doesn't give small pieces of cake she gives a nice slice so really get a GOOD taste of the cake. The Raspberry and lemon cake was a big hit at the wedding. We had people trying to sneak pieces away.lol. But seriously thanks Kathy for the great work you did and for working with the florist to make the cake more than beautiful......

Simply Desserts bakes superbly delicious and beautiful cakes! Kathy Wallace Boschulte, Owner/Pastry Chef, is pleasant, easy to work with and an expert at what she does... wedding cakes and more. She does exactly what she says she is going to do... but you we were so surprised that it is so much more than we ever dreamed or expected. My daughter's wedding cake was exquisite, and guests raved about it's taste! We chose Carrot Cake and Chocolate Cake for alternating tiers, with Butter Cream frosting throughout. Alternating tiers were decorated with polka dots and lattice work and although it had the look of fondant, it was buttercream frosting and tasted heavenly! The wedding cake was the crowning effect to the meal and evening! Kathy followed up with a lovely thank you note to us! How professional, courteous and kind! Great prices! Wonderful, happy memories as the pictures show! Working with Simply Desserts has been a delight!

Simply Desserts is wonderful! Our cake was delicious, and absolutely beautiful, we got many compliments on it. The flavors we chose were Mudslide (Bailey's & Kahlua filling on yellow cake) and Chocolate Nutella (chocolate hazelnut filling on chocolate cake).

We tried several popular bakers in the area before our tasting with Kathy, and after meeting with her it was no contest. Her cakes tasted the best, looked great, she was friendly and very professional, and her prices are amazing!

I took her several photos of cakes I liked, we reviewed her book of designs, and then combined elements from all of them. It was so exciting on the big day to see the final product, especially when it was PERFECT and exactly the vision I had in my head!

If we ever need a professionally done cake in the future, my first call will be to Simply Desserts!

Instead of a traditional wedding cake we actually had tiered cupcakes. Simply Desserts was the first and only place we had our taste testing...because her homemade cupcakes were DELICIOUS! She didn't make us stick to the exact flavors on her list...she let us mix and match and decide which worked best for us. The arrangement was so cute it was unreal! Kathy was 100% accessible, flexible and helpful.

Kathy is a such pleasure to work with and, in taste and appearance, her cakes are amazing. That is not an over exaggeration. Our wedding cake was the third cake we purchased from her because her cakes are that good. No wedding cake I’ve ever had tasted was as good as ours. Her cakes are fresh, from scratch, and simply beautiful. She does not doctor up box cakes and I have NEVER tasted a bad cake from her. She has so many flavors for you to choose from, even vegan and gluten free choices. She uses high quality ingredients to give you a unique and memorable experience.
For our wedding cake, we came to her with our ideas after being pleased with the first two cakes she made for us (birthday and engagement party). We do not like fondant but still wanted a smooth and cleaning looking cake. Kathy did not disappoint with the buttercream nor the decorations (ombre flower petals cascading down the 3 offset square tiers). Not only did she help us through the design so that we got the beautiful, unique cake we wanted, but she also was creative in coming up with a new flavor combination based upon our foodie taste buds. For all three cakes we ordered, we’ve had her red velvet which never disappoints. Her lemon cake from our engagement party was so fresh and moist. For our wedding we had the yellow cake with strawberry cream cheese filling (wow) and the Tres Leches cake with caramel buttercream and toasted pecan filling (best cake I’ve ever had in my entire life). This cake was moist, rich, and so good. We had some left after the wedding and we froze it to eat after our honeymoon because we couldn’t get enough. We can’t wait to eat our anniversary tier (the red velvet). Contact her early because she’s so good and you REALLY want to get your date on her calendar.

Simply Desserts made our delicious wedding cake. Our guests are still raving about cake and how beautifully it was decorated. Kathryn used a picture I provided as a base design and added her own style to complete the cake. She was very helpful in adding some additional decorations such as flowers, and cake toppers in the day of the wedding. Thank you Simply Desserts for being a part of our special day.

The best wedding cake ever!!! Simply Dessets uses fresh fruits and and the different flavors are awesome! My fiance and I tasted their samples at a Bridal Showecase in Baltimore, and we knew that we wanted them to do our wedding cake.

Finding a wedding cake for a reasonable price was a huge struggle for me. Simply Desserts was right on par for all the other bakers in the area. However, working with Kathy was such a pleasure and she was what made us decide to use Simply Desserts for our cake!

The cake itself was delicious, and because this is a local baker, it was made with real ingredients, (not artificial) which was very important to my fiance. She was very prompt in returning my emails and flexible as I had to move my wedding up 5 weeks.

The only thing I didn't like was that the cake was not the color we agreed on and I had to provide some of the extras for the cake to accommodate my price range. I probably should have been more specific about the blue color I was looking for, and none of my guests noticed the color wasn't correct, but just make sure to clarify your color choice with whoever your baker is.

I would definitely recommend Simply Desserts to my friends!

Simply Desserts! Was Awesome! The tasting was very perfessional, fresh and the atmosphere was great. I took her my topper and ribbion early and photos. She was great at holding them until our wedding. My cake was perfect to the design. We had ordered the carrott and rum butter cream. Wedding October 20, 2012~ Carrie Matthews Brown

My husband and I loved working with Kathy for our cake on our wedding day! We were nervous about the wedding cake experience in general because I am vegan and my husband and all guests at our wedding are not and Kathy was willing to make a cake with both vegan and regular cake to please everyone involved! My husband and my sister were literally laughing out loud during the cake tasting because of how delicious her cakes were! She even made a new recipe for her vegan cake and icing and called me up to provide me with an extra sample to make sure it met my approval! We am truly thankful for the effort that Kathy put into our wedding cake and we cannot wait to eat our top tier on our anniversary :)
