Gwen helped my design a FABULOUS wedding cake and on top of that it was delicious! No fondant! Her prices were well within reason for the final outcome. Her cake was one of my most favorite things about my whole wedding and I got so many compliments on it. Definitely recommend her to anyone!

Gwen is a pleasure to work with--very intentional about providing the best service she can. The cake, in terms of taste, is the best I've had. It's not too sweet, but not bland.

The decoration was also very beautiful. If you are looking for a very specific kind of cake, she may not be able to replicate it completely--she has a set of flower designs she works with and a style she likes. However, this is all from years of her experience and no doubt that her "edits" will be for the better. So as a note for the future customers, if you are looking for a very specific design, just let her know.

Some little girls grow up dreaming of their wedding dress. I dreamt of my wedding cake. The absolute one and only dealbreaker for my wedding was that I wanted a Swedish Prinsesstarta for my wedding cake. They're fairly easy to find in California, but for some reason, we had the absolute hardest time finding one in Michigan despite the huge Scandinavian population.

Fortunately, our planner finally found Gwen, who really knows her stuff! She had the technical know-how to turn what is traditionally a marzipan-covered dome of fluffy, custardy, whipped goodness into an opulent tiered (!!!) wedding cake (with necessary modifications, of course). Did I mention it was delicious? And so beautiful—covered in realistic, gumpaste flowers with gemstone accents.

Trifles provided our wedding cake for our reception at Waldenwoods Resort in Hartland MI on February 9th 2013.

We had a three tiered round cake with white frosting and ivory piping with a custom cake topper, buttercream frosting, and two flavors - a white cake with white chocolate chantilly cream and raspberry chantilly cream and chocolate cake with chocolate chantilly cream and raspberry chantilly cream.

My (now) husband and I met with Gwen (the owner) several times before the wedding and each time she offered us a tasting to remind us of our options. She was very helpful in picking out the size of cake and the amount of sheet cake we would need to accommodate our guests as well as discussing options in our price range. For what we got I feel that the price was excellent!

I did a custom design for the cake which I drew myself and Gwen re-created perfectly! She even added small metallic gold balls through the design to add a tiny hint of sparkle (gold was one of our colors). The beautiful cake stand she provided (free of charge) also complimented the ornate style of our wedding. Most importantly - the cake tasted delicious! It was moist, very flavorful, and VERY rich.

Gwen had worked with Waldenwoods several times so she knew when to drop the cake off, who to talk to, where to take it to, etc. so that was very helpful to me as it was one less thing I needed to worry about. I do not have any complaints about my experience with Trifles, Gwen, or the results, and I would absolutely recommend Trifles.

We LOVE Trifles! Gwenn handled all of our desserts for our reception. We had everything from cupcakes to miniature tarts and sugar cookies! Every single dessert was delicious, each one being even more amazing than the last. Not only was everything so tasty, but Gwenn is an artist and creates such beautiful displays of her pastries. Our dessert table was a huge hit with our guests. On top of all of that, we had one tiny misunderstanding as we ordered rock candy from them to give as gifts to our guests. A few days before our wedding, we realized there was a mistake in the order and we only had half the amount we had originally requested. Panicked, I brought this to Gwenn's attention and she responded immediately and assured me it would be handled. The very next day (with plenty of time to spare before wedding day), Gwenn had resolved the problem and all the rock candy was sitting in her shop ready to go without charging us a single extra penny! :-)
If you're having a tough time picking between cakes, definitely go with Trifles for the AMAZING customer service experience! I'd recommend them over and over!

Gwen made an amazing cake. She met with us multiple times and even made a sample cake for us to try as we wanted something she had never done before. We loved her flavors and the quality of her work. She made the cake exactly like we wanted and it looked and tasted great. I would highly recommend Trifles!

Gwen\'s cakes taste so good! The cake we ordered ended up being much bigger and better than I imagined. It was less than $300 with delivery for 70 people for very large servings of cake. One guest told us he usely doesn\'t eat cake but ours was so good he ate his whole slice. We considered saving the top layer for our 1st anniversary but decided that we will just order a small cake to eat fresh in a year. Her cakes are so good it is worth getting a fresh one and I can\'t wait to have it again!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I can't say it enough, in a sea of upsetting vendors Gwen was the one I felt really earned her money. My cake was beautiful, it tasted divine and not once did I have to worry about whether or not it would turn out alright. I must have changed my mind about three times on the design and Gwen always adapted well and gave me honest input, she was a true pleasure to work with.

When I got fed up with my venue/catering I called her up and begged her to do an appetizer table for me. She of course I agreed with very little notice and my guests loved it! Espically the bacon pastry, and I didn't even get to try one! I can't say enough praises she has earned my husband and I's buisness for life.

My wedding cake was one of my most favorite parts of the day- believe it or not it was THAT gorgeous. I can't say enough good things about Gwen--- she went above and beyond what was asked and gave us an incredible masterpiece. AND she was not very expensive.
