I recently purchased a half sheet cake for my daughter’s 30th birthday. I requested her picture to be added. Words can’t describe how much I loved the outcome of her cake. It was perfect!!!! In all my years of buying cakes for her birthday, her bridal shower and even her wedding, none has been as beautiful. A heartfelt thank you to everyone for an outstanding job!

The cake was beautiful and yummy! You were right about how good the strawberry was. I think we have a new favorite now.
