Hi Karen,

A more delicious or beautiful cake in all of Florida can't be found. We arrived on the east coast to celebrate my mom's 85th birthday ( with your wonderful cake) and the pastry chef at the very exclusive restaurant wanted to know who had baked this amazing cake. She said it was one of the most beautiful cakes she had ever seen and after the party she admitted to tasting the cake and found it moist and delicious. Your artistry, attention to detail, and excellent baking techniques make a magical combination. Wish you could have heard all the accolades!

Many thanks,
Linda & Paul

Good Afternoon Karen~

I just wanted to thank you so very much for preparing and designing our wedding cake on Tuesday, June 8th at the Marco Island Ocean Beach Resort. Everyone loved the cake and took so many pictures to show other family members that weren't able to attend. The key lime cake and coconut icing was perfect.

Thanks again for taking the time to prepare and design our wedding cake. It was truly amazing and we loved everything about it!!!

Karen,

As discussed, and as you know, I want to sincerely thank you for coming through with another amazing cake creation for Angela and O.B.'s wedding, including the cupcakes. I know Angela was extremely pleased with the cupcakes at rehearsal dinner, and I also heard guests commenting at the dinner reception how great the cake was.

As always, I look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you for your extreme professionalism and I am telling everyone I know to tune into the Food Network channel to watch you on April 25th!

Best regards,
Kathie

Hi Karen,

Hope all is well. I never got a chance to thank you for the beautiful cake. Maria-Mer told me that you had left before I could thank you in person.

Everyone said it was beautiful and delicious! Thanks again.

Hi Karen!
It was wonderful finally getting to meet you on Sunday, the 5th. We wanted to say THANK YOU for everything; the beautiful cake, the larger size, the flowers, the delivery. Wow! You really pulled out all the stops and really impressed us. Everyone who saw the cake thought it was gorgeous. Our family loved it, both looking at it and tasting it ;) They were more than happy to have seconds.

Since my husband is a professional photographer, I thought I'd send you a few photos of the cake. If you'd ever like to have larger files to use for your business, please just let me know. We loved our stay at LaPlaya and didn't have enough time to explore Naples. We hope to return in the future and we'll be sure to order another cake from you.

Best Wishes and Much Thanks,
Airlia & Geoff
