Working with Carlton’s Cakes was absolutely amazing. Jenean took her time to figure out exactly what my husband and I wanted for our cake, and then made it perfectly!

Carlton's Cakes was a dream to work with! Jenean makes show stopper cakes in taste and appearance. Cake artist extraordinaire, Jenean did both my bride and grooms cakes. The grooms cake was a "shaped cake" in honor of my husband's Army service as an EOD tech and a nod to our... Read More alma mater Georgia Tech. Jenean crafted chocolate dynamite sticks complete with wires and a timer flashing our wedding date as well as a molded Buzz in a bomb suit working on the cake as a bomb technician. I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments we got on the cake. It was a hit amongst the guests for design and taste and a wonderful point of conversation for many! One of the reasons I chose Jenean is that I have a severe gluten allergy. It was important to me that I find someone who could make gluten free cakes that looked and tasted "normal". I was hooked at the first bite and I was totally sold on working with Jenean after I brought two slices for my Dad to taste and asked him to tell me which one was gluten free....he got it wrong! Her gluten free cake is as delicious (if not more!!) as the regular recipe. Jenean also incorporated our beloved pup in to my brides cake. She molded and then hand painted his sweet face as if he was hiding under the frosting. Guests loved seeing that, too! I really can't say enough good things about Jenean and her cakes. You just need to taste them yourself!
