My wedding cake literally took my breath away when I first saw it. Tammy went above and beyond any and all expectation and I am so thankful to have chosen her to make our perfect delicious wedding cake. I wanted something original and quite different from the norm and she was... Read More so excited to make my vision my perfect reality. I had a navy cake with gold lace detailing that would knock your socks off. No flowers or cake topper needed to accent this cake. It was originally supposed to be a sugar stencil, however, when I saw the cake I quickly realized the stencil was gold piping gel hand piped gorgeously which must have taken hours for her. She never said a word about the issue she had and I know it must have been lots of time and a very steady hand. I am so grateful to you Tammy for all your hard work I know went into the design, which was better than I could ever imagined. I added some cake lighting which really made the cake look even more stunning in the evening light. Our tasting meeting was wonderful with so many cake and filling choices to choose from. We actually loved them all and trusted her entirely by going with a seasonal flavor we didn't taste that day; pumpkin spice with cream cheese frosting. It's our favorite and perfect for our fall wedding so we knew we couldn't go wrong and boy were we right! We received rave reviews about the taste and even though we gave everyone larger pieces of cake, it was wiped out at the end of the night. People were stealing other guests pieces it was so yummy! Thank you again Tammy. We ABSOLUTELY LOVED it! ~Monica & Dustin

Tammy did an absolutely amazing job on both our wedding cake and our grooms cake!

Cakes by Kasarda was AMAZING!!!! We had an amazing cake tasting and could not have gone wrong with any of the many many choices of cake and frosting that were provided. We ended up getting two cakes - a wedding cake for the big day and a second cake for the rehearsal dinner,... Read More which was also my sister's birthday (she approved the wedding date :-)). We told Tammy that we wanted something special for my sister's birthday, and, because my sister was working at a planetarium at the time, we wanted a space cake. We showed Tammy a couple of pictures of things we found online but gave her a lot of freedom on how to make it look. The cake was BEYOND what we were ever expecting. Tammy delivered the cake to the rehearsal dinner restaurant, so we did not get to see it before it was brought out, but it was, by far, the most amazing cake I have ever seen. Tammy and Cakes by Kasarda made an absolutely beautiful and delicious wedding cake and also helped us surprise my sister on her birthday!! Thank you for helping to make our entire weekend perfect!!

Tammy, Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding cake, the delicious flavors, and yummy oatmeal cookie sandwiches featuring the icings from our cake! The lace detail and monogram turned out more amazing than I ever could have imagined! Our tasting was a fantastic... Read More experience as well as got to taste a wide variety of cake flavors and frosting options. Tammy was very easy to work with and even did 2 custom flavor combinations.

Our cupcakes were amazing! We did a few tastings at other places and the cupcakes were all too sweet and too heavy. Every place also only had certain cupcakes on certain days and that's what you needed to choose from. When we met with Tammy, in her wonderful little yellow house,... Read More she had a bunch of cake flavors, many frostings, and some other toppings (fruit drizzles & such). She gave us some pointers and advice on which cake goes with which frosting but then let us get crazy to mix & match flavors. We then got to choose which flavors we liked best. We did 200 cupcakes (50 each of 4 different flavors) and we got a cutting cake with another flavor. The cupcakes were so amazing! We even took a box of them with us on the plane when we left so we could eat more the next day. We definitely recommend Cakes by Kasarda.

My wedding cake wasn't a top priority to me. I was actually just going to get a cake from publix, but that would cost me a lot for poor quality. Therefore, the cake tasting began.
