iver a box of sample treats.
After weeks of back and forth communication, a visit to our home to talk through day-of display and set up details, various iterations of a proposal for our cake and desserts, Denetia sent me an email saying she needed confirmation of our order by the next day, which would mark 2 weeks out from our wedding. I emailed her back as soon as I could, around 1pm. I did not hear from her that day, so I sent a follow-up email the next day. Another day later I received a short response from Denetia noting that as she had not heard from me soon enough, she had filled our spot and would be dropping our order. We we shocked to be treated with such little consideration & respect after a very pleasant relationship, especially as we had been given no notice of such a deadline, and had planned on our cake coming from Denetia for weeks. Overall, I was so sad and so disappointed and frustrated to have to scramble to find a new vendor to make two cakes and a dessert spread that we had spent so much time and effort planning with Denetia, less than two weeks away from our wedding. I can't in good conscience recommend Denetia for this reason.

My wedding was on 7/14/18. I initially was not going to write a review, but every time I think about my wedding or see our wedding video or look at pictures of our reception, I get furious.
When we had our initial consultation with Denetia in...
January 2018, she was wonderful. The samples were moist and delicious. She was personable and professional. We hired Denetia to create a 9 tier dummy cake (supposedly about 5 ft tall) along with 3 sheet cakes. We created sketches on that date and we picked flavors.
About 2 weeks before our wedding, the final payment was due. She sent over a final invoice but the cake design was completely different than what was in the contract and we were told that the original design could not be done. I was devastated and let my wedding planner handle it. We were back to the original design (or so I thought), so I paid the balance.
When I walked into our wedding reception, I was so happy until I spotted the cake. It was NOT what we agreed on. It was about 3 ft tall. It was poorly designed. The fresh rose on the flower teir were wilted. The monogram looked hand written with poor handwriting. It did not look professionally done. What was suppose to be a focal point of my reception was a huge disappointment. I had been bragging about her and this cake for months and now I was embarrassed. Furthermore, the sheet cake that was actually served did not taste anything like the samples at the tasting. They were nice looking, but dry. Many of my guests did not finish their desserts.
Afterwards, I communicated with her through email about my disappointment. My wedding planner had already let her team know upon delivery that the cake was unacceptable. (My wedding planner even knew it would be a problem before I saw it.) Her response to my concerns, "I have been doing wedding cakes and pastries for 15 years as a business owner and college instructor and have never experienced a unsatisfied customer I do extend the resolution of a refund for the dummy cake less the material cost." I received a refund of $100.80, which is less than 10% of my overall invoice.
I thought I was finding my lifelong baker, but I really just found my lifelong nightmare. I am truly surprised that there are not more negative reviews, which hurts me even more. Are we really one of a couple people who have experienced this?

The two tiers on the bottom were real and the top was a dummy. Altogether, people could choose between four different flavors once the cake was cut and set on the dessert table. They could either have vanilla bean cake, carrot cake, a chocolate cupcake with oreo frosting and a little oreo on top, or a wild berry lemon cupcake with gold foiling on it for presentation! Then I had her do my bridal shower favors which were deliciousssss!!!!

My desert table was a complete disappointment. I’m baffled at all the good reviews. First of all-her team showed up after my reception started and set up for the first hour. I understand being a little late, but this was unacceptable. Her team...
was setting heavy objects on top of cookies that my SIL made...almost breaking them and my SIL and MIL had to go tell them that they couldn’t do that because the cookies would break. 2nd, Denitia and I discussed in detail my bright colorful color palette-the lack of color was blah-but the stuff that she did color was tacky, honestly embarrassing when I saw that she chose to use pastel pink and purple for the donuts, strawberries and my wedding cake (my colors were burgundy, cherry red, neon coral, magenta, black, gold, blue thistle, and dark green-which i told her multiple times-in more ways than 1). I swear she mixed my stuff up with someone else’s wedding-it felt sloppy and like no thought was put in to it-like she just used what she had left over. She completely missed the mark. 3rd-Denitia told me that they provide a dessert menu, which was never placed on the table so no one knew what they were eating. 4th-when I confronted her via text because she didn’t actually set up or tear down my reception, she completely ignored my questions on how she got the color palette so wrong-but did apologize for her team being so late. I spent $1300 on a table that when I think about, was a complete flop! Something that was supposed to be an amazing focal point was a complete eye sore. Don’t waste your money on these deserts, save yourself the headache and keep looking.
