Yum! posted 12/26/2013 (modified 12/27/2013)

We used Desserts by Design for our wedding dessert. We had mini cupcakes in 5 different flavors. They were all wonderful and gave our guests a chance to try more than one flavor. They set everything up before anyone got there and it was extremely convenient. We really enjoyed not having to worry or be concerned with this part of the day. They were so helpful and wonderful!

yummy! posted 8/29/2013

I'm not a fan of buttercream icing (I like the better cream), but for decorating purposes I know it's hard to work with. The cake itself was awesome. They have an overwhelming variety of cake flavors and fillings. We went with chocolate and raspberry for our display cake, then did a tuxedo (half white/half chocolate) sheet cake with raspberry filling. They decorating was excellent. We had a movie theme and Ellen did a film stip around the base of each tier and then put our action figures (Batman and Black Widow) on top holding hands. We loved it!

Ellen is really easy to work with, but she was hard to get a hold of in the beginning. She was really easy to get a hold of closer to the wedding though.

The food and cupcakes were great! She is willing to make whatever you want (yay! no set menus!!). We got appetizers, family style dinner, and cupcakes for 160 people at $28 a person. Great value!

They had great ideas and I went with them because they offered free delivery to my venue being just a few blocks away. I met with them twice, the second time was about a month before the wedding and should have finalized everything but instead it left a ton of questions in the air. What would the final cost be? How would some design elements be handled? The owner said she had to look into things and was slow to get back with me despite my final payment being due in one week. I had to track her down and remind her to get me answers. And I really feel that she BS-ed me on price. Then on our wedding day the delivery was supposed to be made by 3pm, We arrived at the venue at 2:54 and there was no cake in sight! I called the bakery and spoke with the owner who was unaplogetic, she said she had to close her shop to deliver the cake and would be there when she could. Luckily our wedding was not until 6:30pm! And the cake was DELICIOUS!

My wedding cake was delicious! I still have people commenting on how good it was. I also had her make some polish desserts which were incredible! I highly recommend Ellen!

ellen is fantastic posted 5/22/2012

we went through a lot of work before we finally found someone we could trust. Ellen provided a fantastic tasting and helped with advice with the wedding as well. I can't say enough good things about her and would love to use her in the future.

Beautiful Cake! posted 8/9/2010

Loved my cake from this business but it was a little bit of a headache getting through the tasting and then getting to the final product. She lost our info several times, and forgot she had an appointment with us for our tasting. Doesn't make you feel that special when they forget about you!
