CARLA IS AMAZING! I found Carla on a whim - I think after a Pinterest search that brought up a styled shoot she did in Richmond with mossy trees. I knew she was our cake girl FOR LIFE! So much our cake girl for life, I booked her a year and a half out from our wedding date. It... Read More was that serious. Carla was so hands on from the start of my first email to her: beautiful presentations during the tastings, helpful and extremely communicative during the contract process of any questions I had, and accepted my cake toppers & stands a few days before the wedding. Literally, she was everything. Not only were the cakes perfect in tasting (marble cake + Trader Joe's cookie butter + chocolate ganache = PURE GOLD. You're welcome.), she is a game winner at her business and should be recognized as a huge game player in the cake industry in Houston. High quality cakes with a cute & charming baker; can't go wrong, y'all! Carla, I can't wait to find more upcoming occasions to celebrate with more of your cakes! <3 Thank you for being a part of our day!

Carla was seriously a last minute wedding miracle/life-saver! I booked with her over the phone/email .... without even having the chance to meet her in person or do the tasting... and I was AMAZED with how beautiful & affordable of a cake she made! I was planning my wedding... Read More from outside of the Houston area, and had met my previous cake vendor during a wedding-planning visit. There was delay in getting paperwork, and eventually they upped the quote from to $1,000 which was a bit too much for my budget. 2 months before the wedding (eek... a bit last minute!), I stumbled upon Carla's page and fell in love with her simple & natural art of cake decoration. After a phone call to talk about the details, I found out how passionate Carla was about her work and she was so caring & sweet over the phone. So, even though I didn't get a chance to do the tasting, I knew she was the one to go with. Booking and planning with her while being miles away was a breeze; she was literally a quick text away! She had made the yummiest, moist hummingbird wedding cake which was the perfect shade of turquoise, with flecks of gold and Gerber daisies to match my vision. She also baked an additional I am so thankful our paths crossed, and I would highly recommend going with Carla with Whisk Bakery!
