The cakes were delicious and Karen was great to work with. I'm looking forward to our anniversary tier! Our designs were quite simple, but could definitely add up if you have a specific vision or want fondant.

Karen is wonderful! Our cake was awesome! My husband doesn't really like cake, and he ate every last bite!

We moved to MS shortly after our wedding, and our cake top didn't make the trip. A year later, we were back in Milwaukee and my hubby surprised me with a cake to match our wedding cake! Karen had matched the colors and the flavor - so much better than a freezer burned cake!

I tried cakes at many places around Milwaukee, and either had issues with the service or the taste of the cakes (or even both), and I started to get discouraged until I found The Cake Lady!
You aren't going to go in and pick a picture out of a book when working with Karen! She sat down with me and my fiance and got to know us and our wedding and designed a cake just for us! The cake was not only gorgeous, but delicious as well! It was a hit on our wedding day!
If you do go in for a tasting, be sure to try the lavender cake! It's awesome!

We used this company for our grooms cake and it was AMAZING! My groom always wanted a "Taylor guitar" for his gift, but that just wasn't in the budget at this point : ) So they made a life-size replica and it was gorgeous. It tasted really great, too. I would definitely go with this company!

Karen is fabulous! I kind of knew we'd be hard-pressed to afford her, but she totally understood that we were on a budget and worked really hard to come up with something that fit our price range. Though the cake was a bit of a splurge, I'd say it was totally worth it. We had a beautiful (no, perfect) 2-tier presentation cake and then sheet cake for everyone else. Lavender cake with raspberry preserves, lemon curd, and buttercream icing--a party in my mouth! We also later found out that our top tier was spice cake with vanilla bean pastry cream, which was something we had mentioned before but nixed because it was too expensive. What a wonderful surprise to thaw it out and find she had thrown that in at no extra cost! Karen is super professional and really knows what she is doing--we were impressed from our first meeting and I'd recommend her to anyone.

The Cake Lady was one of my most reliable and flexible vendors. Karen was great to work with and easy to get a hold of. She responded to emails and phone calls quickly, which is one of the most important qualities of a vendor. She was also available if I needed to drop by her shop. Both my husband and I really got along with her well and felt like we've known her forever. As far as the cake goes, it was delicious and extremely creative. My guests couldn't stop talking about how great the cake looked and tasted!! If I ever need a cake for any event, I'm going to get it from The Cake Lady.

Wonderful cake design and so yummy. We had a chocolate ganache with chocolate and a lemon with lemon curd - so good. We ordered birthday cakes from Sarah after our wedding and each one is even better than the rest.

I am originally from outside of the USA and was heartbroken when I realized that US bakers simply do not offer the cake flavor/recipe that I had my heart set on from a young age. I sampled cakes from many different bakers and found that they were all very dry and flavorless. Until I found The Cake Lady. Karen made my dream wedding cake! From design to taste our guests were wowed. Expensive as it was, it as worth it.
