The owner of our venue highly recommended Tortes N Tarts to us, as she said it's the only cake at her venue where she asks for a slice for herself :) We couldn't have been happier. I brought in a few images of the cake I wanted and she interpreted it beautifully. The actual cake was also so delicious. The grooms cake blew us away, the amount of detail and time that she put into it was just spectacular. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to try the groom's cake but it must have been wonderful because it was all gone in matter of minutes!!! We couldn't have been happier with Tortes N Tarts and the ease of working together and how great the final product was.

EDIT: I removed all stars for professionalism after seeing her response to my honest, well thought out review based off of my experience. The purpose of these websites are to help future customers and I utilized all of the ones I posted on while planning my own wedding (there were only 3 websites, I wouldn't say countless). I did contact her directly with my complaints prior to writing any review so all of this "anonymous" stuff is confusing to me. If everything goes well she is very pleasant, but if you have any issues you can expect to be spoken to as she shows below in her comments.

I had my wedding cake done by Kelly at Tortes N Tarts. The cake looked beautiful, exactly as I had hoped for. Kelly was great to work with and I loved that she delivered right to the venue. The taste, however, did not meet our expectations.

Unlike all the other bakeries, Kelly did not give us an actual piece of cake to sample at the tasting as she said she didn't have any made at the time. She gave us samples of the fillings she used in the cakes and they blew everyone away. Even though it was the most expensive, we went with her.

When it came to wedding day, we were all very disappointed. The cake part was good, not nearly as amazing as the way the sample had been presented, but it was fine. The part that was the most disappointing was the frosting; It was borderline inedible. Maybe I don't know what buttercream is supposed to taste like, but I hope it wasn't like what we got. I know that I wasn't alone because nearly every plate had all of the frosting untouched and we got a lot of comments on the Crisco-like frosting.

My suggestion to other brides (learning from my experience) is to sample exactly what you will be receiving on the day as to prevent any disappointment.

Tortes N Tarts responded with the following comments:

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry that it is a total misrepresentation of our Business.We have worked very hard to achieve the standing that we have in the community. And we are known for the freshest natural ingredients. At no time have we ever purchased Crisco for anything let alone buttercream! Buttercream which as it 's name implies it is 100% butter
I am totally mystified by your remarks as your Father who returned the cake stand said what a great cake, it was delicious! and how everyone had loved it! He said that it was delicious!

Highly recommended
We ordered my daughters Wedding Cake from Tortes N tarts, What a great experience.
Everyones still raves about it, we had so many compliments at the reception. We had 200 guests so we ordered 2 different flavors, fresh strawberry filling with real whipped cream mousse & we also had the fresh raspberry with chocolate mousse and chocolate cake, oh my you can really taste the difference when everything is made from scratch. the buttercream was made with real butter. kelly was an expert at helping design the cake to my daughters ideas.
They even deliver and apply the final touches on site. Excellent cake and service
Can't wait to order something for Christmas from here

I'm a total cake-aholic and Kelly Munk made my dream cake come true. After looking at tons of different photos she took all my ideas and made it into cake reality. She is the best of the best! All our guests LOVED the cake and the taste was divine. She delivered right on time, she set it all up and even provided the cake stand free of charge. Tortes N Tarts I would recommend to all brides!

Kelli is a the best of the best, we sent her a picture of our dream cake, after going to several bakeries and other cake "experts" that wouldnt even attempt to recreate our picture. Kelli not only created a beautiful cake, better then the picture, the colors were perfect and the taste...oh my it was heavenly! all our guests agreed that by far this was the best cake they had ever tasted. She delivered right on time, she set it all up and even provided the cake stand free of charge.
The price for the ultimate cake ever was lower then the other places that could not even come close to our design.
BUY your cake form Tortes N Tarts, you cant go wrong.

I contacted Kelly a little more than a week before my wedding. I was surprised she took my request for a cake at such short notice, but completely unprepared with how gifted she is when it comes to the quality and quantity of her products. I perused volumes of albums with pics of cakes she had made in the past in order to find ideas for the cake I wanted her to create. In just a couple of minutes she was able to articulate what I was trying to piece together as a vision. One week later, for less than the price of a supermarket cake, she delivered and staged the perfect cake for a perfect occasion. Every one of my guests wanted her name and number. The cake was not only beautiful, but there wasn't a crumb left. My husband and I finished off the little top piece you're supposed to save for that first anniversary within the next couple of days.

Our daughter was planning her wedding while in Kuwait. Since the wedding was going to be in Washington, it was up to us to find a bakery for the wedding cake. She knew she wanted red velvet and sent along a photo of the cake she wanted. Tortes n Tarts made a delicious cake that looked exactly like the photo. I will use this company again and will be more than happy to refer clients.

At first I have to admit I was a little worried because she only provided fillings, I had to make another appointment to try the cake. We picked her because she used the best ingredients and had the best flavors. We realized later that our cake design was difficult, but she made it happen. She research and purchased items to replicate the design for our cake. Not only was the design great but the cake tasted absolutely delicious. Then she makes a smaller cake for the bride and groom to have. I would highly recomend her. She was better than any other cake place we tried in the Tacoma area.
