Dear Tabitha,

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.

Kind regards, 

Vincent and Shelby


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!




Hi Tabitha!
