I was very impressed when I walked in and saw my cake at the reception hall. I had given her a picture out of a magazine and the final product looked very similar. I had so many compliments on the flavor of the cake, it was very important to me that the cake be made from scratch and not a box. I would recommend using Trish's Cakes, but she does work out her home so you would need to be ok with that.
Trish is another vendor that works out of her home (state licensed bakery), and therefore saves on overhead costs. Therefore her prices were wonderful, and she had been recommended by many friends for the quality of her cakes. We met with her in her home (which was a little unprofessional, as her daughter was in the other room playing an instrument), and she took time to provide hundreds of wedding cake photos for us, as well as samples of her different cakes to try. We ended up choosing a photo from a magazine she had with her, and the final product looked exactly like it. It also tasted amazing!
Delicious cake but it was seriously one of the most ugly wedding cakes I have ever seen. And it was my own. It looked nothing like the photo we gave her, we told her we had a cake topper but she put flowers on top instead. I was horrified when I saw it. And she is rather pricey! We wish we would have used someone else.
