I can't say enough about how kind and talented Aleta is! I contacted her FIVE weeks before my wedding day and she was miraculously available! During our consultation, I showed her a few images I had in mind and she made all of them come together beautifully and she also had... Read More several creative ideas that made it even better. Our wedding cake was gorgeous and we had several compliments on it as well as the Groom's cake! Not to mention it was all so delicious and she had great ideas on what flavors to put together so we didn't have to have just one. She went above and beyond for everything I asked for. Aleta was always prompt in replying to my questions or concerns. She is professional, kind, and I couldn't imagine having anyone else make our cakes for one of the biggest days of our lives. Thank you Adorn Cakes! I can't thank you enough Aleta for your hard work!

Exquisite in Every Way! Aleta, We wish to extend to you our heartfelt appreciation and express our thanks for such a beautiful, exquisite and elegant wedding cake. The beauty of the cake was only exceeded by the Taste! The gentlemen at Pierpont's, who have cut and tasted... Read More hundreds of wedding cakes, were VERY impressed with your attention to detail and the care you took when you set the cake up. They said that they have NEVER cut, tasted, or seen a better cake. (They were STILL raving about it 2 months later!) We, as well as our guests, were blown away. One guest said they would have skipped the exquisitely executed Steak and Lobster for the cake alone! You more than exceed our expectations. Meghan of Spencer Studios Photography took such beautiful photos of the cake. I hope that you have received them! We were so blessed that you chose to be a part of our wedding day. I will forever be grateful on so many different levels. Of all of the vendors that we had the pleasure to work with, as I am typing this I have tears coming to my eyes. Thank you Aleta. I can't wait for our anniversary! We are sincerely looking forward to having more! Oh, wait! There are always our birthday's too!! Oh Happy Day! If you are reading these reviews and you are confused and apprehensive as to who to pick for your own special day...do as I did, GO FOR A TASTING! Aleta's cakes TASTE Fantastic! But, truly she is the WHOLE package; the cake was BEAUTIFUL. Her piping is unparalleled. Aleta is truly skilled. The icing was a light, fluffy not overly sweet Italian Buttercream. We did 2 flavors: Opera Cake (Almond cake soaked in espresso syrup with a layer of chocolate ganache and espresso Italian Buttercream) and White Chocolate Raspberry (White chocolate cake with a layer of Raspberry puree and fresh Raspberry Italian Buttercream). But, she has LOTS of wonderful flavors to choose from. You will find your own special cake for your own special day with Aleta and Adorn Cakes. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Bless you Aleta!

After meeting with a few vendors for cakes, we ended up choosing Aleta at Adorn Cakes for a few reasons. The number one reason, of course, being that her cakes were absolutely delicious! She was also so great with the design of our cake and collaborating with us until she... Read More understood what we wanted. She knew exactly how much cake to serve and I didn't have to worry at all about it. All I had to do was enjoy the beautiful and delicious cake when I arrived at the reception. We ended up with a 4 tier cake that had buttercream frosting. The two flavors we chose were a pink champagne cake with strawberry puree and a lemon cake with lemon curd filling. There were others that were delicious too! She even tried to match the lace on my dress on two of the tiers and recreated the buttons from the cuff on my mom's dress that was around my bouquet. It was stunning. She's even giving us a small cake for our one year anniversary, so we can go ahead and eat the top tier from our wedding!
