Barb is wonderful. I had her make both our wedding cake and a small, individual cake for my MIL's birthday, which happened to be the day after our wedding, in the shape of a witch (family joke). Barb had two meetings with us to help design our cakes and she was great at listening to my ideas and making suggestions. I wanted an Art Deco design, and she helped me take pictures from Pinterest of other cakes I liked, and combine the different elements to come up with something totally unique to me. Barb's business is small and she works out of her home, but that means you get personal service. I had a really bad experience at another storefront bakery, where my tasting was conducted by a 21 year old who obviously never baked a wedding cake in her life, and didn't listen to a word I said, then priced making EXACT COPIES of cakes that are already all over Pinterest. Barb actually LISTENS to what you say and helps you make something unique and special for you. And, her cakes taste great. My MIL was thrilled with her personal cake. I wish I could post pictures in these reviews, because they were amazing.
disapointedReviewed on 2/03/2015 Amber H
found the vendor online, loved her designs and the fact she would be willing to accommodate anything we wanted. however upon showing up for a cake tasting I was shocked to see her answer the door in a tank top (middle of winter). she gave me and fiancé the time to look at her cakes. she had picture hanging up and some in books; however I found it odd she didn't have her cakes separated by types, when looking through the books I had to sort through pages of birthday cakes. I understand she does all types of cakes but I would have liked to have a book that was just dedicated to her wedding cakes. The she offered us a cake sample and that's when my disappointment really hit. The cake was cold and tasted old. I also was not a fan of the icing, it was runny more like a pudding then an traditional icing. I was then put off a bit further by her security depot fees for her cake stands, because I saw how poorly she treated them, they were un polished silver trays thrown and stacked under a table. After out cake tasting my fiancé and I knew we had to look for another wedding cake vendor.

Barb was beyond flexible, patient and accommodating with our wishes. The cakes were beautiful and delicious! These were actually for Baptism cakes but the check box did not allow.

Barb is amazing. Her cakes not only look fabulous, but also taste delicious. She has been making cakes for me and my family since 2004, and we have never been disappointed. Her cakes are by far the best tasting cakes of any I have ever had, and I have traveled all around the globe. If she sold them in stores I would buy one every week, because there are never left overs. She is talented, kind, and makes a personal connection to the client, which is important. She creates your vision, not hers, and her cakes are always amazing. Her cakes truly help make the event spectacular and memorable. I always look forward to a special event, when I can get a cake made by Barb.
