  • Flavors were all delicious. Decorating was absolutely beautiful. Probably one of the most beautiful cakes I’ve seen. Finishing touches were spot on with fresh flowers.

  • We first met Dawn at the Honey Creek Resort menu tasting and vendor fair in November 2019. A few weeks later, we stopped by her house on our way from Kansas City to the Quad Cities to sample several cupcakes. I contacted her with only a days notice and she was able to make about 8 different cupcakes to try and we were so thankful! We also grabbed a few others on the drive from Hy-Vee and Walmart and Dawn’s were better by a landslide. After tasting hers, we felt so silly for even considering other places and her prices are definitely fair. We chose the following flavors: almond wedding cake, funfetti, chocolate with salted caramel frosting, gluten free chocolate (which was incredible and our biggest order), lemon, and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. We first ordered 6 different flavors because we simply couldn’t decide; they were all incredible! Due to COVID, our guest count dropped by about 50% and Dawn was kind enough to let us omit two of the flavors at the last minute... Read more

  • Dawn is INCREDIBLE! She’s not only easy to work with, but she has THE best cake you’ll ever eat. They’re beautifully decorated and taste even better (if you can believe that). She executed EXACTLY what I was looking for on my wedding cake. I had countless guests telling us how wonderful the cake was, which was no surprise to me. It’s the day after our wedding and we’re already looking forward to eating our anniversary cake!! 😊

  • Can’t say enough good things about Dawn... I used her for my daughters bridal shower & wedding. Everything is delectable, your guests will rave over it. Dawns presentation is 5 star, her setup of the cake & cupcakes at the wedding was elegant. It was truly a pleasure to work with her.

  • We loved working with Dawn for our wedding day. She is extremely thoughtful and professional throughout the entire process. Dawn gave us the most amazing cake tasting, which helped us decide on our cake and cupcake flavors. We absolutely loved our cake and cupcakes. Every single detail was perfect. All of our guests still talk about the cake and cupcakes and we cannot wait for our anniversary to have another taste of the cake! I cannot wait for another occasion to work with Dawn again.

  • I love that Dawn had our cake testing held in her house. It made our experience very personal. She had so many options for us to choose from. Surprisingly, my husband and I are not very big cake fans... until we tried Dawn's! Her cake is unbeatable and her options are limitless. We left for our honeymoon the day after our wedding and found ourselves bummed because we didn't get to enjoy any of Dawn's leftover cake and knew it wouldn't be good by the time we got back. I guess we will just have to wait until we eat our anniversary cake to have some more :)

  • Dawn is beyond phenomenal. Her work is so beautiful but it is also delicious. She did our wedding cake and it was a four tier piece of art. Everyone raved about how yummy it was. I might add that she was incredibly professional and prompt with delivery and set up. I didn't have to worry about a single detail when it came to the cake. My husband and I are so excited to enjoy our anniversary cake.

  • Dawn did a fantastic job on our wedding cake and the sheet cakes were so tasty! She was very flexible on flowers and our topper and was great at answering my questions! I was considering having a family member do our to save on cost, but I am so glad we ended up going with Dawn!
