I can't say enough positive things about Simply Desserts and Kathy's wonderfully delicious cakes! Simply Desserts came up leaps and bounds above the rest, and those cakes were also delicious. Kathy provides the attention to detail you want and listens to you to determine the best options for you. In addition to our wedding cake, we also purchased the groom's cake from her. Instead of us saving the top layer of our cake, she offered us to come back close to our 1 year anniversary to get a "fresh" top layer from her! Not only are these cakes delicious...they are beautifully decorated as well. We had 240 guests at our wedding and there was PLENTY of cake for all! My husband and wedding guests are still commenting about our wedding cake (lemon cake with strawberry preserves and buttercream icing). Can't wait for our 1 year anniversary to enjoy more from Simply Desserts! I absolutely recommend Simply Desserts for all of your dessert needs.

Our cake was beautiful, delicious, and it was everything we wanted. Having an amazing wedding cake was very important to us, and Kathy of Simply Desserts made that dream come true. Kathy is great, and shines above other cake bakers. It is our promise that her ingredients and cake texture is superb! Her personality is amazing! In addition, she gave special care to meeting our needs. So many of our guests said, "Where did you find her?-The cake was great!" We truly believe that no other could have measured up to Kathy. We highly recommended her! Especially, if you desire to work with someone looking to meet your best interest! We plan to order again in the future! Thanks so much.

Kathy was lovely to deal with and the cake was both gorgeous and tasty! The sugar flowers were amazing--I couldn't believe how real they looked. All our guests raved about how delicious the cake was. Our biggest problem was choosing flavors--there were so many good ones! Kathy was helpful, responsive, and flexible throughout the process, even changing flavors at the last minute at the request of my daughter and her husband-to-be. A great cake from a great vendor!

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.

Wow...this place is great. I wish I had my wedding cake right now to eat because it was amazing!!!! We had this amazing five tier cake and it was 4 different flavors and amazing. Everyone raved about it. I highly recommend them and they had the best price out of the places we visited. And they give you a free cake one your one year anniversary. Your can't find a better place to make your cake. They are responsive and we had no issues with them delivering on time. There was a minor mishap with our cake topper and it breaking, but she bought us a new one so we had a nonbroken one as our keepsake which I found very professional.

Highly recommend!

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!!

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 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!
