My husband and I would highly recommend Linda from The Confectionist! From the moment we left our tasting, we knew we wanted to book her for our cake. Not only was the cake the most delicious we had tried (we had tastings with two other bakers), but Linda's warm personality and willingness to create and make adjustments based on our taste preferences sealed the deal! For example, during our tasting, my husband mentioned that I love peanut butter, and Linda pulled out a jar of peanut butter and whipped up some peanut butter filling for us to try right then and there! Linda also incorporated my husband's and my competing taste preferences (i.e. two tiers of chocolate and peanut butter and two tiers of chocolate and raspberry) without hesitation, which made it easier to make final decisions about flavor. She was open to our thoughts and wishes for design but also made wonderful and much-appreciated suggestions based on her experience and knowledge. The final product was beautiful, just as we dreamed of, and was completely scrumptious! One of my bridesmaids made sure we got a huge slice in tupperware to take to our hotel after the wedding, and I definitely took some time to eat and enjoy late that night!!

Linda was amazing, I have never tasted cakes like hers before. Even my husband that does not like sweets loved everything she made for the tasting.She has such unique flavors that were all delicious! I received so many compliments on the cake she made for us,the Hawaiian wedding song cake. We were going to do the whole tradition of saving the top piece of our wedding cake for our one year anniversary but, we just couldn't wait or let it sit in the freezer, it was just to good. it was so awesome to have her apart of the wedding!

I went to several cake tastings and had to decide between Christopher Garrens and The Confectionist. After a very tough decision, we went with the confectionist. The tasting went wonderfully and my wedding cake was AMAZING! It definitely was the best cake I've ever had. White chocolate and milk chocolate cake with mocha toffee fromage and white chocolate frosting. EXCELLENT! I will definitely be using Linda again for future cake needs!

Linda is a true artist. The cakes were so beautiful and delicious. The Chocolate with Lavendar Vanilla Filling was a true work of art and the Red Velvet was the best we have had.

Utterly fantastic.

Taste buds are subjective. When I needed a wedding cake, I went to countless bakeries that people had raved about online--only to be severely disappointed with generic tasting cake. I wanted a wedding cake that tasted every bit as good as it looked, and I wanted someone skilled enough to not have to use fondant. For those who don't know, fondant is an inedible paste made from the tears of children and the souls of happy people. (In truth, it's technically food, although no one actually eats it.)

While I'll reserve the cake vs. pie discussion for another time, good cake should taste effortless. Effortless in the way Kobe drives the lane; effortless in the way that gymnasts conquer the rings; effortless in the way you drive out to the country on a lazy Sunday. It shouldn't taste processed, fake, pretentious, or dry; the frosting should be decadent without tasting generic; the fillings should complement the cake--not lend their moisture to an otherwise dry cake; The cake as a whole should be greater than the sum of its parts.

Linda, the owner at The Confectionist delivers on all fronts, and makes an other-wordly cake. If you've ever heard chefs comment on food, they will often-times repeat the mantra of needing good ingredients for a good final product. Linda uses exceptional quality ingredients coupled with delicious recipes to turn out a product that can only be described as "perfect".

If you've been searching for a bakery/wedding cake, your search is over. If you've noticed that cakes and cupcakes you've tasted lack that certain "something", your search is over. If you've wanted to find a bakery that is personal and passionate, your search is over. I knew my long and arduous search was over from tasting the first bite; the second bite made me forget about my troubles in finding a cake bakery; the third bite made me want to jealously guard the remaining bites.

I promise you—your search is over.

Thank you, Linda, for your professionalism and wedding cake creation.

David and I had a wonderful time meeting you and tasting the various flavors you make. We also appreciated your guidance and suggestion at our consultation with selecting the right flavors and style for our wedding cake and party favors, i.e., cupcakes.

We also loved the cake setup at the reception venue. The cake looked fabulous. Our guests loved the cake as well as the cupcakes.

We also appreciated your flexibility with assembling the cupcake boxes, the follow up emails, and your speedy response to confirm everything about the cake and cupcakes was in place for our wedding.

Thank you, again! We will definitely order another cake from you for our next special event.

Warm regards,
Elena

It was a delight working with Linda during the planning of our wedding. We greatly enjoyed the opportunity to taste a large variety of cake and frosting flavors before deciding on the final ones. There were plenty of choices to create a unique cake to celebrate our wedding day. We appreciated her willingness to work with our design ideas and our budget to design a cake that worked with both.
A job well done.
P.S. The cake looked amazing when we walked into our reception room.
