“We've gone to designer desserts since 2007, and loved the atmosphere, the warmth in the building, how creative all the desserts were down to their fancy name. The owner, outstanding. Very eager to listen, provide, accomodate, so much....we had our wedding cake made by him in 2009, and is still talked about. We continue to go in with our whole family, and they can't wait to see the surprises from there for birthdays. If you are looking for design, flavor, creativity, warmth, and something different...this is the best! 5 stars!”

-Sarah K.

“I have to say brainstorming with Adam for my special 40th Mad Hatter's Tea Party was the best decision I could have made. The Mad Hatter's Hat and the cards cupcakes and Alice falling into the hole cupcakes were a smash. Everyone loved the detail and the flavor! Thanks again for making my special day that much more fabulous!!”

-Kathy H.

“My daughter brought me some cupcakes as a gift. They traveled over 12 hours on a train and they held up great. Even after another 2 hours in the car they tasted as good as they looked! We loved them!!! I wish you were closer!”
