I'm a guy, and my first thought when our venue The Mansion on Main Street informed us we could choose from three companies to make our cake was "Who cares...cake is cake". Little did I know lol. Diane blew us away with all the possible choices and flavors -- we went with a... Read More marble mocha and chocolate chip pound cakes and vanilla buttercream icing. It was PERFECT! Moist and delicious but not overly sweet. The only problem is everybody loved it so much the guests didn't want to leave us any to take home....the Maitre'D had to beat 'em off with a stick to make sure we got to take home the top layer. Please do yourself a favor and make an appointment with Diane before you sign with anyone else.... Brett and Lisa Nath 6/11/16

Diane was extremely pleasant and accommodating to work with. Our tasting was great and let us sample several flavors of pound cakes, fillings and two different outer frostings- needless to say we had options! We ended up going with chocolate chip pound with vanilla filling on... Read More the bottom layer, the lemon pound with raspberry filling on the third layer, marble pound with mocha filling on the second, and chocolate chip pound with cannoli filling on the top. This was topped off with a delectable French buttercream on the outside. Diane worked with us to get the right look and style for our cake which we kept to buttercream designs on the outside that varied by layer. If you choose to work with Diane for your event, you won't be disappointed!

We were extremely pleased with the cake that Diane’s la Patisserie created for our June 2017 wedding -- including the presentation and taste, as well as the excellent customer service. Before we had even started to think about cakes, Diane had thoughtfully delivered several... Read More samples to our venue, for us to try during our dinner tasting. The taste alone sold us. Working with Diane was a pleasure. She met with us for an hour, in the late evening, close to home, to explain our many options and help us figure out exactly the right cake for our reception. She put us extremely at ease and explained how we could save money by obtaining the appropriate decorations and providing them to her. Diane also followed up with us to make sure that everything was going to plan. On our wedding day, the cake arrived, as promised, exactly on time. We were confident that the result would be great, but the final product amazed us. The cake was exactly what we wanted, if not better, in terms of both exquisite presentation and delicious taste. All our guests loved it too. Although we also had an extensive Viennese table of deserts, most people chose the cake, which probably would have been enough on its own! We wholeheartedly recommend Diane’s la Patisserie to anyone looking for a wedding cake. Thank you for the great service and excellent cake!

I just have to say I am extremely disappointed with Diane. My wife and I had our wedding at the Mansion in Voorhees, NJ. From which they supplied a list of three wedding cake vendors that we could pick from. After trying all three Diane had the best flavors and seemed the... Read More most experienced. The sample cakes tasted amazing and i could not get enough. But this is where the bad comes in. Our cake was the driest pound cake I have every tasted, like worst than the Entenmann's pound cake you find at your super market. It really put a huge damper on my wedding when we did the cake cutting. There was so much cake left over at the end of the night because our guest found it dry too. And its not like it was just one layer, because we had a layer of the chocolate chip pound cake, a layer of the marble mocha pound cake, and plain vanilla pound cake. Like a proper baker would make smaller sample cakes of each batter to taste and make sure what you are supplying has the quality and isn't dry as all hell. I really do not recommend her, I hope she reaches out to me so that we can talk, because I never even got a follow up to how the cake tasted and how happy we were with the final product. -Mr. & Mrs. McMahon

Diane Nussbaum

I began my baking career as a hobby, while I was teaching students with reading disabilities. After moving to NJ in 1979, I decided to bake for a friend who had just opened a restaurant in Phila. After baking for a few restaurants from my home, I decided to look for a commercial space. This led to my working with a bakery in Haddonfield, and then buying that bakery-La Patisserie Francaise. I baked there for 15 years, moved to Bellmawr for more space, and finally moved to W. Berlin , where we now bake every thing to order. We fill orders as they are placed and are picked up there.
