  • Jutta's cake was extraordinary. We tried several different vendors, and Jutta's cakes stood out to us right away for the variety and creativity of her flavors--for the same price as more standard cakes. Jutta was so easy to work with, and our cake turned out exactly like we wanted. I would recommend La Joconde to anyone!

  • She made the most divine cakes! All so unique and I couldn’t help but finish every bite! She was so much fun and her prices for a beautiful 4 tier cakes were unmatchable!

  • Jutta was an absolute pleasure to work with and made a cake that was visually spectacular as well as absolutely delicious. Our guests raved about it. She saw our vision even more clearly than we did and the cake she came up with was perfect. We can't say enough about her!

  • Jutta was such a pleasure to work with! We ended up using La Joconde for both my wedding and bridal shower. At the tasting, Jutta provided samples of 12 different cakes and they were all delicious. I had such a hard time choosing flavors that I added an extra layer to my cake. I loved the look of "marbled" wedding cakes, and Jutta went above and beyond to create a custom cake based on my vision. I highly recommend La Joconde Cakes.

  • Jutta is truly an artist when it comes to her cakes! For my wedding I wanted something classic and elegant without having to use fondant. Within our first meeting Jutta had designed my dream cake simply with a pencil and a quick sketch. Her cake flavors were delicious and different. The wedding cake was five tiers and she was able to incorporate tiny pearls she made out of frosting all over it was an incredible cake. She also designed and made a fun grooms cake for the wedding as well. I am looking forward to eating the top layer of our wedding cake next year on our anniversary!

  • Jutta made us a beautiful and delicious cake which she delivered and then decorated with fresh flowers delivered by our florist. She had spent a lot of time designing a cake with me earlier and yet was flexible enough to change the design after I changed my mind about how I wanted the cake to look. My family and friends were wowed by the cake's appearance and it's delicious taste.. I would not hesitate to order another cake from her!

  • After having another baker cancel on me, I found Jutta Bach's gorgeous studio in the Pearl. Her expertise and professionalism was evident from the start. This is not the kind of baker who would cancel on you or not return a phone call. She is immensely talented and her cakes are divine not only in taste but her architectual background shows in her beautiful designs.

  • I'm writing this review at the stage of having just had our tasting and design consultation, and I'm already wowed! Jutta, the owner and chef, opened her studio for us on a Sunday to accommodate our difficult schedules. She had created a special recipe for us based on information about our tastes she had elicited prior in emails. It was incredible; like a little bite of heaven. In fact, the hardest part so far was choosing flavors for different layers from such a wide array of absolutely divine and unique recipes. She is preparing a sketch for our approval based on discussion of design preferences, and we can hardly wait to see what is surely going to be the crowning element of the serving table at our reception. She obviously not only cares about her work, but also about her clients. I cannot praise LaJaconde highly enough.

  • Jutta did a fantasic job with our wedding cake! We had a very unique Mario themed cake which we custom designed with her in her bakery several months before the wedding. The day of it came out exactly as we dreamed, but better! And it tasted great too... our only regret is not being able to eat more the day of... so we plan on contacted her again for an anniversary cake next summer :)

  • I was setup with La Joconde through Vibrant tables and Events, I worked with Jutta on the cake design and flavors. I found a cake that I loved online and sent Jutta the picture. They helped us get the design of the cake I loved with in our budget. The cake came out beautifully and tasked great! They responded quickly to me via email and were very understanding to any questions that I had.

  • Jutta's cake was wonderful. Three unique layers that were all lovely. Word to wise naked and semi naked layers are a bit vulnerable to the air. It all disappeared!

  • Jutta is an artist! We wanted something unique and special for our wedding, la joconde fit the bill. Jutta had done macaron cake layers before and with her flavor combinations we hit everyone's taste preferences at the wedding. She matched our colors and made something simple look amazing.

  • Jutta is wonderful. We met with her to design an unusual cake request: a Norwegian kransekake and four smaller cakes for our wedding of 200. The cake flavors she had prepared for us to sample were all dreamy (lavender soaked pear , lemon raspberry, chocolate mocha, brown sugar bourbon, and several others, each covered in perfect European-style buttercream). Her cakes aren't as sweet as most cakes (European style), and the flavors are exquisite. After choosing our flavors, we explained our visual ideas and with a few artful color pencil strokes, she'd sketched my vision exactly. The cakes were amazing the day of and looked exactly like we'd imagined (decorated only with elegantly textured buttercreams and fresh flowers).

  • The most amazing cake I could have ever dreamed! It was loved by all, a centerpiece of our Reception like none other I could imagine and we can't wait to reflect back on our day in another way on our first anniversary by enjoying it again with some champagne!
