Our cake was lovely and delicious and gluten-free, which was incredibly hard to find. No one at the reception knew, nor could they tell, which made it all the more wonderful. When coordinating with Alice, it was wonderful being able to brainstorm various ideas; my only... Read More challenge was that I needed more guidance about how to make my cake special and unique and was looking for an expert to give me suggestions. We ended up with a lovely ivory cake which was accented with real flowers from our florist; however, the design that was sketched out seemed like it was going to be so much more delicate and intricate than the final result. I also had to re-send and remind this vendor about timelines and information that I had previously provided, which was frustrating when it happened multiple times. Summary: 5 stars for taste and making a gluten-free cake possible, but I had to knock off a star for organization and the need to repeat logistical information multiple times and not having the sketch really come alive the way it was presented during the design session.
