AMAZNG.. AND DELICIOUS! Vanessa is a genius with baking and a true artist at designing the most gorgeous desserts. I had a vision in my head of our cake, she did exactly that and more! expectations were exceeded. We received so many compliments on how beautiful our cake was and... Read More yummy it was! Another thing that was a must for me was a football cupcake display. We are huge football fans and i wanted to incorporate that into our wedding some how! After i got to see our cake for the first time and was already taken back with happiness for it i went to our cupcake display and could not believe it.. blown away it was the best thing i have ever seen! Just goes to show Vanessa can create anything you want and bring your visions to life AND have it taste amazing. We loved working with her, she is so kind, so thankful for her!

Delicious Gluten Free!

We hired Vanessa from The Chocolate Rose to do our wedding cake & cupcakes. I am gluten free & often times I am less than impressed by GF baked goods. The Chocolate Rose is definitely an exception to that rule! Initially, I was planning on doing a combo of GF & regular... Read More cupcakes, but after doing a tasting that included only GF, we decided that all of them should be. All of our guests were floored by the fact that they were GF & you couldn't even tell. On top of the taste, the presentation was gorgeous & the price was very reasonable. Rather than eat stale cake on our 1 year anniversary, Vanessa is providing a fresh cake for us to enjoy!

Absolutely Perfect

I contacted Vanessa with only a few months before the big day with really no idea what we wanted. She met with me, showed me ideas, brought me flavor samples and we figured it out together. She was really great about communicating in a timely manner and always double and triple... Read More checked details with us (delivery time, address, date). I also added a groom's cake about a month before the wedding and she delivered with perfection! Our wedding cake was so beautiful we didn't want to cut into it and our guests are still raving weeks after! We also love that although she will freeze the top tier, she offers the alternative of contacting her before the first anniversary and she will make you a new "top tier" at no additional charge!

We could not have been happier with the outcome of our wedding cake! If there were more stars to give, we would gladly give Chocolate Rose more! Vanessa was a delight in helping us pick out the cake size and flavors. Vanessa was also so kind when helping us design our cake and... Read More she did such a great job at bringing all of our visions to life. At the tasting, we knew right away that our guests would fight over it. When we saw the cake on our wedding day we were so pleased, we felt that this was one of the best features at our venue! We had a small wedding, (around 70 guest) and we literally heard from everyone how much they liked the cake. Many of them told us that they had to have multiple pieces of cake because every flavor was so delicious. Some even asked if there was any more cake hidden away and they were surprised when they found out that the cake was Gluten Free. Our flavors were Coconut Rum, Black Forest and Strawberry Almond so not just one lousy Gluten Free flavor. We will definitely go back for not just cakes but all things Vanessa makes, for our next events. She is truly amazing and so easy to work with. We won't hesitate to recommend The Chocolate Rose to any of our friends not only for a wedding but for any special occasion!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Vanessa and the Chocolate Rose were recommended by our venue and we couldn't be more happy with the results! We had a 100 person wedding with a 3 tier cake and went with a different flavor per tier (chocolate raspberry, chocolate champagne mousse, and my... Read More favorite- the fireside favorite aka s'mores). The tasting was lovely and super fun as I went with my teenage cousins since my fiancé wasn't able to make it. She executed my cake requests beautifully and the end result was just stunning. We went with a darker grey icing with gold accents and she was super willing to go along with this more non-traditional request (and figure out how to make it taste great). Added bonus for Instagram loving people- Vanessa keeps her feed up to date so you are able to see her most recent creations through your whole planning process. Would HIGHLY recommend the Chocolate Rose to future couples!

Vanessa is a treasure. She's such a joy to work with! From the very first meeting with her, we instantly hit it off. She's kind, knowledgeable and engaging. She listened to our ideas but more importantly got to know us as a couple-- what made us special, what was unique to our... Read More relationship. We came in with pictures of other cakes that we liked, but had other ideas we wanted to incorporate and did not know how. We're archaeologists (we met on an archaeological dig) so we wanted to include that in our special day. She took that and ran with it, giving us all sorts of ideas of unique ways to pay tribute to our profession and our story. Her suggestions were things I would never have thought of on my own, but would make our day uniquely us. She never let us settle for something we had just seen on Pinterest. She is an artist and really takes the time and energy to make the perfect cake for each couple. I was really nervous about the final outcome of the cake, as I was unsure how it would all come together (we'd never seen anything like it, after all-- how many archaeologist cakes are there?) but it was better than we ever could have imagined. It came out better than perfect. Her craftmanship and attention to detail was astounding. We gave her a really complicated image to replicate, in a small and cramped space, and she executed it flawlessly. We couldn't believe it! It was the perfect centerpiece and everyone couldn't stop saying how amazing it was. She also provided us with archaeology themed cookies to accent our tea bar, and those were fabulous as well. We couldn't have asked for a better treat! And, to top it all off, Vanessa's cakes are HANDS DOWN the best cakes we have ever had. The unique and expertly crafted flavors are so yummy and moist. I could quite literally eat her cakes (and cookies) for the rest of my life and be so happy doing it. Her frostings are so flavorful and rich, but you won't ever feel overladen with sugar and sweetness.
