We just wanted to say thanks for making an absolutely perfect wedding cake for us on New Years Eve. When we saw the cake it was even better than we expected. I've gotten countless compliments from our guests who thought it was the best wedding cake they'd ever seen. And it really was exactly right for the event. On top of all that, it tasted amazing, which we know it would. Julie, you were so great to work with- Gerald and I are recommending you to all our friends! Thanks so much! ~Leslie and Gerald

Thank you for creating a cake for us that was more spectacular than we ever could have imagined. You are amazing. Many oohs and aahs at the wedding- everyone wanted to know about the artist. I wish I'd had your business cards. ~Caitlin and Chris Cadaques, Costa Brava

...What can I say but "beautiful and Delicious!" The cake you created for Stephanie and Tim's wedding on October 10, 1998 was a stunning presentation for a five-tiered cake...! ~ Lisa Russi
