"OMG, she nailed it"Reviewed on 1/10/2016
Travelling 3 hours several times a month to help select wedding vendors was a challenge, so as MOB, I was so relieved when we finally found a cake designer who was more concerned with the bride and groom's wishes that "here's what WE do. Nadine's attention to detail was amazing; and I especially appreciated the way she helped my daughter match her vision to a real cake! The groom's cake was was fun to work with as the British guy shared his thoughts and ideas of what he wanted on his cake that reflected memories of his home country. Although cake flavors and fillings were decided months before the wedding, the bride and groom were able to refine their choices a couple of weeks prior to the event. I remember my SIL bringing in cell phone pictures of the cakes to the bride's room on wedding day. The response was, "OMG, she nailed it." and we all cheered. Guests compliments on the cake included, "who made those amazing cakes?" Maybe Nadine should consider a name change.
From the moment I got engaged, my mom and MIL were determined for us to have our bride and grooms cake made by Who Made the Cake! And we are beyond thrilled that we did! We met with Nadine and had our cake tasting with her and she was a pleasure to work with! Everything we wanted for our cakes, she was able to do! The designs and especially the flavors were amazing! Everyone loved the cakes! Nothing but positive comments! Who Made the Cake was a fabulous company to work with and we can't wait to use them again in the future!
From our first appointment to the night of our reception, Nadine Moon only gave my wife and I confidence and excitement. In such stressful time worrying about just about everything, We never worried about our cake. Her work speaks for herself. Her attention to detail, flavors, and craftsmanship is truly the best I have ever seen! MY WIFE IS A PASTRY CHEF, and she was nothing but pleased with the service and quality of "Who Made The Cake." There is no point in shopping around for Cakes in my opinion...Nadine Moon should be the only choice.
Our cakes turned out wonderfully! I wish I could post a photo! Nadine listened exactly to what we wanted and did her best to execute everything we were looking for on our cake (other cake vendors threw down our ideas or didn't know what we were talking about or just didn't want to do it). I loved my bird nest cake and all the tiers were moist! Our two biggest concerns were dry food and dry cake; nope! Everyone went straight for the strawberry layer (we unfortunately didn't get any because it was all gone :( ). My only issue was for those special flavors, like strawberry and carrot cake are an additional fee, but we couldn't resist the deliciousness of those flavors! I regret we didn't make our bottom and the top tier we get to save as strawberry because that one was our favorite. Everyone, even my caterer and wedding coordinator said how extravagant and awesome my cake turned out! If you want your dreams to come true, please go to Nadine and her cake crew! Not only can your design come true, the cake doesn't disappoint with the cake art! :)
Delicious and Gorgeous Cake! The customer service was excellent. #SoManyHugs
Who Made The Cake by Nadine was so wonderful!! The cake was beautiful and so delicious!! We will definitely be using her again in the near future!!
Who Made the Cake is the absolute BEST! I normally don't like cake for dessert and their cake has changed my mind! We had a chocolate chip cookie dough wedding cake and chocolate groom cake and the flavor was out of this world! We had so many guests asking where we ordered and thought the cake was excellent! Thank you Nadine and the entire team for your creativity and service! We LOVED it:)

Beautiful and best tasting wedding cake ever!
The Cake She made us was ABSOLUTELY BEYOND what I could have ever imagined and more!!! And the Flavors?! OMG!! SO GOOOOODD!!
Nadine makes the most beautiful and delicious cakes!! She has always been a pleasure to talk to and very personable. We even got a post card in the mail! Our cake was exactly as described but SO much better. She exceeded my expectations by a mile. If I could give 10 stars, I would in a heartbeat!! Please go to Nadine for your wedding cake. You will not be disappointed!!
Beast cake I have ever had. All the guest agreed!
I’m not one to dwell on unpleasant service experiences. A bad restaurant outing or complications at the cleaners has never inspired me to seriously consider doing a post hoc write-up. Yet, here we are. Of course, this would have been completely unnecessary had Nadine from Who Made the Cake! not been nearly as callous as she was. After meeting with her one afternoon and deciding to put a flat last name initial sugar paste atop my daughter’s wedding cake, I realized three hours later that the topper could not go on the cake. I notified Nadine of this request later that day, but was told that the $35 charge for the topper was nonnegotiable. She would not credit me that amount. This was despite the fact that I had only met with her that afternoon and was unaware that telling her just a few hours earlier of my interests was irrevocable. She insisted that she would not be willing to refund me the $35. As you can imagine, I was dismayed by this news. I had spent thousands of dollars on my daughter’s wedding, had interfaced with a host of different vendors and had never seen this kind of obstinacy. One has to keep in mind not only the total expense of purchasing a cake from Nadine, but also the fact that this was ten days before the cake was even to be delivered. The cake was in no way structurally altered nor were there any other changes. She justified her rigidity on the grounds that her adherence to the contract was sufficient and that it was I who was unreasonable. I appreciate her concern for contractual integrity, but the contract I agreed to upon choosing Nadine as my cake vendor was hardly a recipe for commercial success. I chose her not only because I thought her skills as a baker were worth the investment, but also because I thought that I was to work with someone flexible and customer-service oriented like the other vendors with whom I worked. She often made me feel as if I was the bad guy. I merely wanted to ensure a wonderful wedding for my daughter and Nadine seemed insensitive to that fact. She insisted in an email exchange that she went into this business because of her passion and love for baking—not for financial gain; her behavior regarding the $35 speaks to the contrary. A word of warning: If you plan to work with Nadine, be prepared that you will operate on her terms. Even something as rote and trivial as making a meeting time was done so as to “make time” for me. In other words, her willingness to meet and chat about my cake was a favor she bestowed on me. Need I remind you that I was the one making the significant investment to help her business. My recommendation is that since we live in a city as large as Houston, I would find a different baker. There are plenty of excellent and creative ones from which to choose.
We love Nadine, she really paid attention to the details of making my cake. I had my wedding on Nov. 5, 2016 at The Sweetwater Country Club. The cake was designed from my dress. Perfect details of roses, hydrangeas, and lace. It was amazing. Thank you Nadine. The cake was so delicious and everyone enjoyed it.
Who Made The Cake made my vision come to life!!!!!! It was the most BEAUTIFUL & DELICIOUS wedding cake I have ever seen and tried!!! Everything went so smoothly from our meetings, to the design and they were early to drop off our cake on our wedding day! Worth every penny! I will make sure and tell every bride to be that this is the place you want to go!!!! My new hubby and I were sooo tremendously happy with everything!!! Thank you a million times from the bottom of our hearts!!!
We had MANY cake tastings before we found Who Made The Cake, and let me tell you HANDS DOWN this is the BEST tasting wedding cake you will find and absolutely beautiful to top that off. I've baked all my life and love sweets and I know for a fact I will be using Who Made The Cake for future events. We sat down and had our cake tasting and knew after about 2 minutes we were going to order our cake from here. We got our quote, but before we put our deposit we saw several other cakes we liked the idea of. Raven, the receptionist I must've emailed about 35 times was so patient and helpful with me. Our wedding cake turned out AMAZING! We had the chocolate with caramel, red velvet, white cake and we had the white chocolate fondant that was delicious. We had so many compliments on our cake and I thank you for making my big day even more special!
I bought my Husband's groom's cake from Who Made The Cake! and it was definitely one of the best decisions I made for our wedding day! We ordered a classic chocolate grooms cake and it was absolutely delicious. Nadine was a pleasure to work with and really listened to what I wanted and she had some great ideas to offer! The cake was a huge hit and was definitely a highlight of the day.
My wedding planning process was stress free! Hard to believe, right? What helped to make it amazing was Nadine at Who Made The Cake. I knew exactly what I wanted. I described it to her and its like she saw my vision through my eyes. It is such a wonderful experience to see something that looks so beautiful and taste exquisite. My guess could not stop talking about the cake. The one question that everyone asked was; "Who Made The Cake"? We already know that when the time comes for baby, we'll be back. She will always be the one we call for special occasions. Thank you!
We had two cakes delivered for our wedding. The cake tasting process was simple and low stress - Nadine was even knowledgeable about Gulf Coast salt water fish, which led my soon-to-be husband to purchase a cake that mimicked a YETI full of red fish. While my traditional cake tasted like a dream and was made to fit every detail, his YETI fish cooler stopped the show. These cakes are not only beautiful but delicious! Nadine, Raven and the rest of the crew were easy to communicate with and delivered a phenomenal product.
Our wedding was in April. We received a beautiful cake -- simple but beautiful and us. The cakes went fast with the lemon cake filled with raspberry completely gone by night's end, and I didn't even get a piece. There was only one problem that caused a lot of frustration. Our hand made cake topper was not completely put together. We were told they didn't know how to put this one part on the topper so, instead of asking for help, they just kept it in a box below the table. Our wedding coordinators confirmed that box was never there. The cake venue worked with us afterwards. We found the cost to replace the item. The cake venue gave us the money to replace the piece and a $100 gift card for a 10" cake. They worked with us and were apologetic.
Words cant explain how wonderful Nadine and her staff were. I previously read some other reviews and felt I had to write a review because I had an amazing experience from the first time I walked into Who Made the Cake! When I began to look at cake designs, I think everyone can tell hers are the best by far.. She has been on every show and won every award, ( I did my research, even Steve Harvey). I have to admit I was a little scared to receive a quote because her designs are so over the top and unique, however after comparing her to all the local competitors hers came out to the best price per slice and of course the BEST designs! When I scheduled my appt, the ladies were so pleasant and even offered advice on other vendors that I was trying to lock down. When I got into the shop, I was completely overwhelmed because picking the cake design was the second biggest to do on my list. I think I had pinned and cut every single design I had ever came across, and began to show her and tell her my elaborate design details. Nadine sat patiently across from us and LISTENED while my mother, fiancé, and mother-in-law all poured our ideas out to her. While she was listening I noticed she was sketching, in a matter of minutes, she had sketched the most beautiful cake I had ever seen that included all the elements and designs I wanted. I was literally in tears! The hardest part about my wedding cake design was picking from the delicious flavors, even flavors I wasn't keen on made my mouth water. Long story short, I truly believe Nadine was the BEST decision I made out of ALL of my vendors. She has a calming spirit coupled with a unique talent. When I got to my wedding venue, I again was in tears not only because my wedding cake was better than I ever could imagine, but because my groom was in awe of his grooms cake! (EVERYONE was asking is that a cake?! ) I can say as a bride, I wanted all my guest to love all of my decisions I worked at for the past year, but the true icing on the cake would be my guest pulling me aside asking "WHO MADE THE CAKE"... I cant wait to visit her and all the wonderful staff again, for my baby shower :)
I'm writing this review one year after having Nadine's cake on the best night of my life to date. It was delicious then, and even better than I remember it one year later on our anniversary weekend. I heard a lot of horror stories from coworkers who also participated in the tradition of saving the top layer of their wedding cake for the first anniversary. Glad my story is just the opposite!
My family has been purchasing cakes from Nadine for years due to my mother's fascination with wedding cake and her numerous requests to have on instead of a typical birthday cake, so when it came time to choose a cake vendor we knew exactly who we wanted to go with. The cake tasting was very personal and made the decision on cake flavor very difficult as they are all spectacular. My husband and I each chose a cake and we were not disappointed on our wedding day! Our guests are still raving about how beautiful and delicious the cakes were. I even noticed some of the guests were taking pictures with the cake before we arrived at the reception venue! My husband and I will be purchasing anniversary cakes for years to come from Who Made the Cake!
Our grooms cake and bridal cake were amazing! Everyone kept asking "who made the cake?". Nadine and her staff are very professional and make wonderful cakes! I can't wait to have more of my wedding cake on my one year anniversary! Thanks for everything
