Etiquette of Chocolate
Jaycel created a beautiful cake for my wedding of 175 people that did not break my budget! I wanted fondant and he made this possible at an affordable price. He was so easy to work with and replied to my e-mails within a few hours. Highly recommend him to any bride!
I definitely recommend Etiquette of Chocolate. Our cake was beautiful and tasted fantastic. And the cost was not outrageous and will not break your budget. Jaycel is so wonderful and will work to do just about anything you want. I highly recommend EOC for your wedding cake.
Beautiful and delicious!
Jaycel makes beautiful cakes. As soon as we walked into his shop we know we would get our cake from him!!!
Booking Etiquette of Chocolate for the wedding cake and chocolate favors was one of the best decisions I made throughout the wedding planning process and also one of the easiest. The cake was fantastic and our guests haven't stopped talking about it yet! The chocolates in favor boxes were also a huge hit, none were left at the end of the evening.
We feel very lucky to have found such a superior vendor in the Jacksonville area. The cake and chocolates were of very high quality and it was a joy to work with Jaycel. His kind and patient demeanor was a help to me throughout the planning process.
I would recommend Etiquette of Chocolate, without reservation, to anyone planning a wedding or other event --especially those for whom the sweets are very important.
I loved my wedding cake, it was perfect! Jaycel did such a wonderful job, he exceeded my expectations on so many levels. I had so many people tell me at my reception how great the cake tasted & it was so beautiful I felt bad cutting into it... Until I tasted it, that blood orange buttercream is phenomenal! There isn't a better value in NE Florida. Thank you to Etiquette of Chocolate for the beautiful memories.
Etiquette of Chocolate was fabulous to work with! We were so pleased with both of our cakes.
We were planning our wedding from Orlando, so Jaycel was willing to meet with us anytime. We met him for the first time on an early Sunday morning because that is all the time we had in Jacksonville. I was just shocked that any business would be willing to be open for us at that odd time. He put on a great tasting for us
and truly was constantly conscious about our availability. We were captivated by this young, hard-working, and creative
We wanted a very simple cake, that's just who we are, and Jaycel
really listened to what we wanted and sent us to appropriate websites
to look to get ideas. He explained every step of the process and
truly guided and listened to us as we made our decisions. We had our
dream cake for our wedding! Not only was it beautifully done with
refined artistry, but it was the best cake we have tasted. We have
had so many of our guests and family members say that to us. We had
the raspberry and champagne filling.
We were not even planning on
doing favors, and had even decided against them, but we were so happy
with how we were treated and how budget conscious he was that we
ended up ordering chocolates as favors and, also, we had guests say
they were awesome!! I can tell you too, they are AWESOME!
I can't say enough good things about him. At the time we spoke with him for the first time, he had another
person working with him and helping. She moved to NY, which he made
sure to relieve any panic he saw in our faces when we found out. I
truly thought "how in the heck is he going to do all that work
himself?" Well, it was an incredible cake! Even more incredible that
he did it all by himself, with no other help.
I could truly go on and on about Jaycel and our Etiquette of Chocolate
experience. I personally think he is becoming and is going to be the "it"
baker/chocolate connoisseur in Jacksonville. He already has tremendous talent and
work ethic and fortunately for me and you affordable right now!
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much Jaycel!
Great service, great price!
What I liked most about Etiquette of Chocolate was the personal attention they gave to my cake and me, the excitment that I felt from them when I first walked in their door. They truly enjoy their profession and it showed on the wedding day when I was presented with a phenomenal, beautifully designed 4 tier cake. Jaycel, the President, was constantly in touch with me about the design for my cake. I met with him once at his store and through me explaining my personality and what I like, he immediately drew on idea and that is exactly what I was imagining. It is truly an art what they do at Etiquette of Chocolate. I did not want real flowers on my cake so Jaycel, through his extensive training, was able to design a bouquet, matching the colors of my wedding, of either sugar paste or gun paste flowers, I'm not sure of the terms. Jaycel was able to preserve the bouquet for me, my husband and I will be able to have that memory forever.
My husband is an avis fisher, I needed a fun fish cake for him. Jaycel designed a aqua blue chocolate cake with a fish jumping out of water with a hook and all. The fish was not an image pasted on the cake. It was a fish basically sitting on top of the cake. Hard to describe, just know that it looked amazing. My husband loved it. Last but not least, the taste of the cake. Words cannot express the flavorful cake. They can make what ever flavor cake you desire. (I hate wedding cake) I chose to have alternating carrot and white cake tiers. Simply done by Jaycel and bursting with flavor. I couldn't stop eating it.
They not only have wonderful cakes, the also make their own bon bons. I order 400 bon bons for my reception to be given as favors. Each choclate is named after a virtue, typing the flavors within the chocolate to that virtue. So, each table was named Etiquette of Chocolates virtue and those chocolates were at those tables. Jaycel worked closely with me and we had more tables than chocolate virtues. Etiquette of Choclate worked and created 5 additional candies with virtues just for my reception. If that is not customer service, than I do not know what is. They care at Etiquette of Chocolate, they are perfection. I cannot thank them enough for their hard work!!!
The photos say it all! If you want a creative and stylish cake, turn to Etiquette of Chocolate. Jaycel has made some amazing creations for our clients, and we love his chocolates too!
The Etiquette of Chocolate makes the most incredible chocolates and amazing wedding cakes. I love stopping by the store to get their famous bon bons. My favorite flavors are Courage and Fidelity.
We are dedicated to being the premier cake and chocolate boutique in Northeast Florida by offering the best recipes and craftsmanship to our clients.
2. Ask for a sketch of your cake. Don't expect a baker to provide a sketch before you put down your deposit, but I think that it should be mandatory to have one, so that you get a sense of proportion, colors, and the overall look of the cake. Don't expect the sketch to be a work of art, just expect the cake to be.
3. Be open to new flavors. Just don't think of what tastes good. Try to conjure up memories, from childhood or shared between the both of you, that are evocative of a taste. You can be vanilla if you want....but you don't have to be!
4. Be open to what the baker's vision is. It's your cake, have no doubts about that! But, your baker is a professional who...hopefully...has more experience with wedding cakes than you, so hear us out.
5. Please, use a professional baker, not an under the table operation. I'm sure your friend...a friend of a friend.....your mom...your aunt...or whomever is a terrific lady, but they rarely have the facilities to create a beautiful cake. If they don't have a storefront and/or a business license....bride beware.
6. I think that the most important things to spend money on in a wedding are: the dress, the venue, the photos, and the cake. That is what people remember, spend accordingly.
