We chose Gwen to do our wedding cake, and we were so happy with the final results! Throughout the process, Gwen was great to work with and easy to contact. She helped me transport the custom cake stand when I was in a last minute pinch and had no one to deliver the stand to the reception hall on the day of the wedding. Most importantly, the quality of her cake and frosting is excellent - not too sweet, light, and moist. When I asked for a second trial, she explained that she typically does not offer that but was willing to do another complimentary tasting for me to help choose the flavors. She also was willing to bring us a box to the wedding reception to take the leftover cake home. The final design of the cake looked great! Lastly, her prices are reasonable as compared to other vendors. I highly recommend her!
We had cupcakes at our wedding and they turned out perfect, she does such a wonderful job, we will being going back to Gwen for other occasions
Gwen's cakes are beautiful and she does not use fondant. Our cake was delicious and beautiful. I highly recommend the cherry cake with the cream cheese filling. It is to die for!
My husband and I found Gwen fairly easy to work with. She was flexible and available to meet with us and did multiple tastings to help us figure out our tastes. Her cakes are really delicious, and the cupcakes are huge! Her prices are also very fair, especially for how much you get.
We were quite disappointed with the decoration of our cake though. When we had our second meeting with her, we brought pictures and described in detail how we wanted it to be decorated. It was just a very simple monogram with round pearl border around it and really nothing else. When we saw the cake on our wedding day, the monogram was awkward-looking, messy, and almost juvenile, and the border didn't consist of the pearls we gave her pictures of - they were more elongated mounds than small, round pearls. The cupcake decorations were fine, but it was sad that our top tier of cake was sub-par. Our photographer didn't even take a picture of it from the front and we were surprisingly grateful for that :/
I realize that the decorations may have been a miscommunication between us and Gwen, but we tried to be very clear and make sure she understood what we wanted. I wish that if she were unclear or confused, that she would have reached out to double check.
My parents & in-laws are hard to please with "western cakes" because they claim that they are always too sweet compared to asian-styled ones. However they loved the taste & texture of our wedding cake.
One thing that was disappointing was that Gwen was a little hard to get in touch with. Maybe this was due to the busy-ness of wedding season and our wedding falling soon after a holiday weekend. It definitely required some phone & email tag. However the end result was lovely and delicious.
I also loved the fact that the pricing was very fair. I don't remember the final cost but the pricing was ~$3/slice + any set-up/travel fees. You do not need to pay $6-8/slice for wedding cake in order to get great tasting cake. Seriously contemplating ordering some normal cakes, maybe I can come up with a birthday/other occasion to celebrate =)
Our wedding cake was delicious and everyone loved it. Gwen is easy to work with and can create just about anything from a picture.
Gwen did a wonderful job on our wedding cake! It was beautiful and our guests keep talking about how delicious it was. Gwen was very easy to work with and would recommend her to anyone.
Gwen was easy to work with and produced beautiful cupcakes with amazing flavor. Moist, consistent, awesomely yummy.
We asked her to do a decorated cake round on the top, and I will say that piping / drawing is NOT her strong point. I'm sure she's great with floral frosting designs, but I do NOT recommend her for script / drawing.
If you're looking for a to-die-for delicious cake without a lot of fussy decorating, Gwen is AWESOME and I'm sure her price is hard to beat. Give her a try!
Gwen was nice but she didn't make the cake the way she said she would. I was disappointing but it was a beautiful wedding day regardless!
WOW! I was so, so impressed. Not only are Gwen's cakes amazing and delicious her professionalism and quality are something you rarely find. Pricing was unbeatable for what you get. She stays away from the typical tasting cakes and gives you 5-star quality. So many cake flavors and she was willing to work with me in all ways. The cake was beautiful and even better than I could've imagined. So happy!
I've had Gwen's cakes at several events, and our wedding cake lived up to the high standard. The taste was amazing and it looked great. She also did an awesome job arranging our cake topper and the flowers our florist provided.
Thanks Gwen, everyone loved you cakes!
Gwen is a true artist in her skill! I met with Gwen for a cake tasting and initial consultation and her cake was out of this world! The frosting was unlike any other that I had tried and just knocked it out of the park for me. Gwen was very pleasant, professional and helpful. From what I found doing research around my area she was the most reasonable as well. Gwen was able to take my numerous pictures of different cakes that I liked and came up with my PERFECT wedding cake. It was absolutely beautiful and I couldn't have asked for anything better. And, OH MY GOSH, was it ever delicious! I think the first thing out of everyone’s mouth who was at the wedding who saw me after was, " That cake was so beautiful and delicious!" I think I've heard more about the cake than anything else that was at the wedding!
Thank you Gwen for making my dream cake come true!
We were overall satisfied with our cake from Gwen's. She was very easy to work with and the cake was absolutely gorgeous. We loved her cake when we had samples at our tasting, but were a little disappointed on the wedding day. It was still very good, but the half of the cake that was supposed to be bavarian cream and strawberries seemed to have very few strawberries and just wasn't quite as moist as when we tasted it. She is very well priced, though. This is definitely the way to get the most value for your money.
Gwen is the nicest person. She works from her home and is very professional. I was able to taste the cakes beforehand. She is also the most reasonable baker I found at $2.5 a piece. I got so many compliments on the cake after the wedding!
I had a 5 tier cake with a different flavor in each tier. The cake was mouth watering good. Great Baker!
Gwen was so fun and easy to work with. We waited way to long before finding a baker, but when we met Gwen (two months before the wedding) She was more than willing to help. We had a delicious tasting. Her prices were very reasonable. The day of the wedding she came and set everything up with ease. And most importantly, the cake was delicious! Our guests are still talking about how amazing it was. We can't wait to eat our anniversary cake!
She did absolutely beautiful work and it tasted even better! The cake was EXACTLY what I was dreaming of and it turned out beautiful! Great pricing as well for a 5 tired cake!
The Ann Arbor area has a tradition of great food. Also, my grandmother used to make wedding cakes for a living, so I my expectations for the cake were high. Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful. It felt like it represented our event perfectly, and most importantly, it was the best cake I have ever tasted (sorry Grandma!). The frosting melted in my mouth without being too sweet, and we had the freedom to customize the flavor of each layer so everyone got their favorite combination. It was everyone's favorite cake. It was also very reasonably priced.
Gwen's professionalism, her patience, her obvious joy with what she does, her willingness to make us part of the process, and her attention to detail made all of the cake related duties my favorite part of wedding planning, which if you're a cake lover, is as it should be!
