Gwen at trifles is amazing. She did such a great job in bringing our vision to edible life. Our Guests loved the cake so much that it was all gone at the end of the night! I will definitely continue wen to use trifles for any future cake needs, And the dessert pizza is a amazing too!
Thank you Gwen for everything!

The cake was absolutely delicious but unfortunately it looked absolutely nothing like the picture I gave her to copy. It was bright green and looked very rushed through! very disappointed in how it looked but everyone said it tasted great....
We wanted to have cupcakes instead of a traditional tiered cake, and Trifles definitely delivered. We got to sample a bunch of their treats during our consultation appointment, and didn't find a single thing we didn't love. They have a huge variety of sweets and treats, and we willing to work within our budget while still offering a large range of choices for our guests.
The staff is incredibly creative and came up with a beautiful display to compliment our colors and theme.
Our cake was fabulous! Gwen fit us in on very short notice to meet about our cake. We got everything we wanted in our cake!
I had a 3 tier cake and also mini cheesecakes. Many of my guests said it was the best tasting cake they've ever had at a wedding. The display was beautiful and the taste was amazing.
Trifles provided our wedding cake for our reception at Waldenwoods Resort in Hartland MI on February 9th 2013. We had a three tiered round cake with white frosting and ivory piping with a custom cake topper, buttercream frosting, and two flavors - a white cake with white chocolate chantilly cream and raspberry chantilly cream and chocolate cake with chocolate chantilly cream and raspberry chantilly cream. My (now) husband and I met with Gwen (the owner) several times before the wedding and each time she offered us a tasting to remind us of our options. She was very helpful in picking out the size of cake and the amount of sheet cake we would need to accommodate our guests as well as discussing options in our price range. For what we got I feel that the price was excellent! I did a custom design for the cake which I drew myself and Gwen re-created perfectly! She even added small metallic gold balls through the design to add a tiny hint of sparkle (gold was one of our colors). The beautiful cake stand she provided (free of charge) also complimented the ornate style of our wedding. Most importantly - the cake tasted delicious! It was moist, very flavorful, and VERY rich. Gwen had worked with Waldenwoods several times so she knew when to drop the cake off, who to talk to, where to take it to, etc. so that was very helpful to me as it was one less thing I needed to worry about. I do not have any complaints about my experience with Trifles, Gwen, or the results, and I would absolutely recommend Trifles.
Booked this baker a year in advance for our wedding. She promised the cake would look like the photo I brought in to her... Well she it showed up to the reception the only thing that kind matched the photo was the colors! And the best part was it was leaning backwards like it was going to fall of the table. Kind of a let down, but it still tasted alright. I'd be hesitant in booking with her again. I think she says she'll make what you want and then does whatever she has time for.
My cake from Gwen was gorgeous and tasted delicious. However it wasn't even remotely what we asked for. Not the right flavors, not the right colors but tasty and pretty nonetheless.
Please send me a message to explain so how I can find out how this is possible. I would surely appreciate it! Sincerely - Trifles
Gwen was the very best to work with, as we talked about what we wanted she was drawing a picture of the cake as we talked. We wanted a hazelnut cake she made exactly what we wanted.Our guess enjoyed every bite. Gwen is a very talented artist our cake not only looked beautiful it taste awesome. I am so happy we went with Gwen, we went to a lot of cake tasting and once we met Gwen and then taste her samples we were hooked. We will continnue to by all our cakes and or desserts from Gwen she takes pride in every cake, cupcake, candies etc. she makes. She is a very hard worker and she makes sure her customers are very happy and yes Gwen you have one more satisfied customer. Thank you, you are awesome. Maggie & Mike
I think of all the things I was excited about at my wedding, the cake is what I couldnt wait for! We have the most beautiful cake with 4 tiers. All 4 were different flavors and were just amazing!!
Gwen was awesome to work with! We didn't really know what we wanted for our wedding cupcakes, but she patiently worked with us and helped us figure it out, and made the most amazing cupcakes for our wedding! I loved walking into our reception and seeing the most beautiful, elegant, artistic, and delicious looking cupcake display! Our guests LOVED the gorgeous details on the cupcakes and they LOVED how amazing they tasted too! Gwen even made a special low sugar cupcake for my dad, who has diabetes. I would recommend Trifles to anyone looking for an amazing product and awesome service! :)
Cupcakes were great, got rave reviews from all of your guests!
Gwen did an amazing job creating the most beautiful wedding cake for our head table and a cupcake tower filled with cupcakes, small cheesecakes, and cannolis!!! They were so picture perfect that the photographer included several pics of them in our album. As always, they were delicious and all gone by the end of the reception! Trifles is the BEST!!
Gwen took the time to really listen to what we wanted. We met with her for a tasting and really liked what she offered. We wanted a strawberry/chocolate marble - something she had never done before - so she made up a small sample cake for us to try for a second tasting.. It was amazing! The only thing my husband looked forward to was this cake. We had 3 tiers and a grooms cake. All 4 were completely different, giving us basically 4 cakes. I gave Gwen a picture of a design I made, and the cake was exactly what I drew. I couldn't be happier with the results!
Trifles is a spectacular vendor to work with. Gwen is fabulous at whatever she does and was more than willing to help me come up with ideas and work within my budget. She knows what shes doing and has a great cake/bakery. I have recommended her to all my friends who are getting married! I am still getting emails from guests and even friends of guests, telling me how awesome my cake was!
The owner sits down and plans out your cake with you when you make an appointment. My cake was everything I wanted plus more! She is a little more money then some, but well worth it!
Thanks so much! Our prices hover in the $4 - $6.50 per person price range and are holding steady in that range through 2012. We do not have an extra charge for sugar flowers or a rental fee for cake stands, so we feel that the "perks" of working wi...
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I can't say it enough, in a sea of upsetting vendors Gwen was the one I felt really earned her money. My cake was beautiful, it tasted divine and not once did I have to worry about whether or not it would turn out alright. I must have changed my mind about three times on the design and Gwen always adapted well and gave me honest input, she was a true pleasure to work with.
When I got fed up with my venue/catering I called her up and begged her to do an appetizer table for me. She of course I agreed with very little notice and my guests loved it! Espically the bacon pastry, and I didn't even get to try one! I can't say enough praises she has earned my husband and I's buisness for life.
The owner was very nice and was willing to work with my budget. I choose one of the "budget cakes." It was pretty and tasted good, but it was a little on the small side. It was to serve all of my guest and there was not enough cake! The pieces were cut very, very small and there still wasn't enough! Luckily my reception venue had a house cake to serve the rest of my guest!
I will be happy to address any concerns that readers of this post may have in person during our cake tasting and consultation. At Trifles, I always strive for excellence in all areas of the wedding experience. It is in my best interest to satisfy m...
Gwen was really easy to work with. Her cake captured our vision for our wedding and was so delicious!
Thanks for your review. It is always fun to capture a couple's vision in cake!
She was so easy to work with and could create anything. The cake looked awesome and tasted amazing.
Thanks for reviewing :) Every week is a new adventure in cake and winter weddings are so much fun to do!
