"Thank you so so much for our delicious cakes for our wedding!! We heard soooo many people raving about them!! People have even asked where to get the banana with salted caramel from!" ~Salena~
I highly recommend CakesbyDesign. They listen to your needs and the flavor is unbelievably delicious! Everyone at my wedding said the cake tastes amazing!
Our wedding cakes turned out absolutely incredible!! My husband and I still can not believe how beautiful they turned out and everything was so professional with Tabitha. We had custom designs for both the bride & grooms cake and we were blown away with how she was able to make our ideas come to reality. For the groom cake, she was able to make these incredible little queen guard men out of fondant (my hubby was in the English queen’s guard and so this was lovely and sentimental) Also, we got to go do a cake tasting with her in order to help us decide on the flavor and they all tasted so good that we had a hard time deciding. We went with the strawberries & champagne flavor and it was delicious. We still have wedding guests talking about our cake months later after the wedding. Highly highly recommend & so happy we went with her! ~Trina~
I've received many compliments on "my" cake, and so it's only fair that I should pass them on to you.
Whomever asked, I gave recommendations to your business and on behalf of everyone who liked the cake (which was everyone I'm sure) Thank you !!
You did an amazing job and I'm very grateful.

I can’t wait to get you the professional picture, but I just wanted to share that everyone LOVED your cake!!! It looked and tasted incredible!!! HUGE HIT!!! You are wonderful and I appreciate the work you put into the grooms cake!
We had all the aggies put their rings around the cake and it was probably one of the coolest things I have ever seen! Thank you again so much!
We just had our wedding and Tabitha made us a four-tiered cake with all kinds of delicious flavor combos (one per tier). It was seriously so beautiful and our guests loved eating it. The price was the best around and she used an inspiration picture we shared with her and executed the design wonderfully! ~Gina~
