Bayshore Cakes by Rachel Donnell
My new father in laws exact words were "I never had a wedding cake I actually enjoyed eating until yours." That's something coming from a 50 year old man in Utah whose been to a LOT of weddings. Seriously the flavor is absolutely fantastic. It was moist and delicious and I was craving our wedding cake weeks after our wedding, and I'm not a cake person. The fondant is marsh-mellow based so it's not disgusting like most fondant. I would have liked to see a little bit more intricacies in the outside detailing (with the frosting flowers ect.) but it was still a very beautiful, playful cake.
Rachel made our cake for us and I provided the decorations for the cake. She did a beautiful job and met with us personally to ensure our cake was what we wanted. They do scheduled tastings throughout the year, which we couldn't make it to, but we ordered a chocolate cake, with caramel over it and it tasted AMAZING. She makes her own fondant, which also tasted incredible.
Great cake and wonderful value for...
Rachel is an excellent baker! My wedding cake was delicious and all of my guests loved the cake!
Your ideas were above and beyond anything we thought COULD be done with a cake. The cupcakes were so beautiful people didn't want to eat them, then when they did they couldn't stop! Beautiful AND deliciious. Thanks for being a big part of a beautiful evening!
Rachel was great! Her responsiveness was great, she was always available when I called with questions, or she got back to me the same day. Her professionalism was never a concern to me, she knew what she was doing and she is very good at it. The cake was absolutely amazing, everyone loved it. It was the only thing that actually went right that day. Our cake was delivered on time as promised and it tasted better than we ever imagined even after our two tasting sessions. We are from Wyoming but Rachel had no problem delivering to us, which was great for us because there really no where here that can do what she does. We are so lucky to have heard about Bayshore Cakes and picked them to do our cake. We could not be more happy. We will be giving Bayshore Cakes as a high recommendation to everyone.
I loved my wedding cake. It was designed just how I wanted it. And it had amazing flavors. The only thing that was hard, was that it took about a month to a month and half to get a responde to an email I sent to them about changes I needed to make to my cake. But other than that, it was amazing service.
Typically speaking, I am not a cake person. Cake is fine and I like it enough to eat it, but if some one were to ask me what sounds good the answer would not be cake. Rachel and Bayshore Cakes have changed my mind.
I went to the Bayshore Cakes tasting with my mom and we were surprised about cake. We tried 15 mini cupcakes. There was the regular butter pecan, chocolate, white, red velvet, and carrot cake. And then there were crazy awesome flavors like cinnamon crumble, lime, orange, pink lemonade, rootbeer, peach, lemon poppy seed, brownie and others. And there was more than just the regular chocolate, buttercream or fondant frosting. Rachel had cream cheese, grape, pink lemonade, whipped cream, pina colada, ganache, and almond frosting, too! I don't like cake that much and I ate Every. Last. Cupcake.
At the tasting Rachel had actual wedding cakes so you could see them up close and compare sizes. This really helped us to decide on our tier sizes.
Rachel made the whipped look just like the picture I gave her and she was extremely prompt in answering my emails (I was one of those nervous brides and there were a lot of emails). The longest it ever took her to respond was 24 hours.
She delivered our cake and set it up and helped put the petals on the cake. Rachel was fantastic all the way around. The only reason I gave her 4.5 on professionalism is because she was wearing a hat and sweatshirt when we had our tasting and also when she delivered our cake. But business wise, she was extremely professional.
T and I LOVED our cake! It looked beautiful (#279 on her website) and tasted even better. We made sure to snag some big pieces of all three kinds to eat after the party. We had so many people tell us it was the best wedding cake they have ever had. The cake was so delicious that it would have been the best value at twice the price.
If we still lived in Utah I would have Rachel do all my birthday / holiday / event cakes because they are that fantastic.
Rachel did a great job with our cake! I sent her a picture of the cake that I wanted and she created it perfectly! It looked and tasted great! I would recommend her to everyone!
We had a picture of the cake we wanted but of course we wanted it to be somewhat original, which she did. She made a beautiful, delicious cake that was affordable, I highly recommend her!
Bayshore didn't do my wedding cake but they have made several cakes for us for birthdays. The cakes are wonderful and gorgeous. I wish I would have known about Bayshore cakes when I got married....I would have definitely had them do my wedding cake.
Rachel is amazing! she often does 100s of cakes in 1 month...I don't know how she does it. Each cake is unique, custom and fabulous. It is hard to find a baker of great quality and bar none design and that is Bayshore Cakes! She continues to impress. I can't imagine my weddings or special events without a cake or cupcakes from Bayshore!
I have known Rachel for years now, and I am consistently amazed at the quality, detail, creativity, and artistic expertise of her work! I would recommend her to any of my Brides, Company, Anniversary, or Birthday Clients. Rachel will make your custom cake better than you could have imagined!
