  • We had a wonderful experience with Simply Desserts! After trying two other cake vendors who literally just dropped cake samples on a tray and left us there, Simply Desserts provided the personalized experience we wanted. We left our cake tasting, not only having tasted some delicious samples, but feeling like we made a new friend. As I (The bride) am not a fan of cake, we chose to go with a smaller top cake, Strawberry Lemonade, and then a bunch of uniquely flavored cupcakes. They were all a huge hit! My mother, at the last minute, also requested Gluten-Free Cupcakes. This request was met with no issues and I am told they were delicious!

  • Hiring Simply Desserts as our baker for the wedding was the best and easiest decision! We met with Kathy in her home office where we had a tasting. She came to the meeting very prepared and she even brainstormed some decoration ideas for us, including drawings and photo inspiration! She was also able to work with my dietary restriction with ease (non-dairy). Everything was delicious and it was very hard to narrow down our decision on cake flavor! Our guests were so impressed with the cake and cupcakes! We got one 6-inch cutting cake (yellow cake with strawberry white chocolate cream cheese), and 30 cupcakes of each flavor: pumpkin with cinnamon buttercream, dulce de leche with vanilla buttercream, red velvet with white chocolate buttercream, and lemon cake with raspberry preserves. Kathy worked with our Harry Potter theme to tint the buttercream inside the cupcakes to match the Hogwarts house colors! Payment and delivery were flawless... she did everything exactly as we wanted and eve... Read more

  • O!M!G!!! Our wedding cakes were absolutely AMAZING! I am very picky about cake because I used to make them professionally myself, so understand the gravity of this statement: These were THE best cakes I have ever tasted in my LIFE!! We had them do individual cakes for each table with lemon/blackberry curd for the guests and truffle cake for us. I'm telling you, these cakes crossed our eyes and dotted our Ts! Kathy was WONDERFUL to work with, and the cakes were just beautiful. (I'll post pictures when I get them.) Trust us... you want these cakes in your life.

  • My fiancé now husband and I attended several cakes tasting, but we were not completely pleased. When I contacted Kathy, she provided me with a list of cake flavors. We were impressed with the list, because She has a good selection. The day of our tasting, Kathy was very professional, and we felt comfortable, because she has a beautiful personality. When we tasted the cakes, they were moist & delicious, and the buttercream icing was perfect. Kathy helped us in choosing our wedding cake style and she did an AMAZING JOB!! Everyone in our wedding like the cake design and flavor. We chose almond cake raspberry tiramisu. We will certainly be using Kathy again. Thank you, Kathy!

  • Kathy bakes the best cakes, they are phenomenal! We thought we wanted fondant because of the smoothness and appearance. However, Kathy uses Italian buttercream which is not as sugary and the texture is so smooth it looks like fondant and tastes so much better! Kathy was so easy to work with, very sweet and kind, and her communication was top notch! Payment was very easy and she delivered our cake right on time to our outdoor tent. Our guests raved about our wedding cake. We choose Tiramisu and Chocolate Chocolate, delicious! I would very highly recommend Simply Desserts, you will not be disappointed and it will definitely be our “go to” for any future cakes we will need!

  • WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL!!!! Kathy's cupcakes were the BEST! Thank you for making our day special. I recently got married and Kathy's professionalism through the whole process made ordering our cupcake(cake) probably the easiest thing we had to do through this entire experience. When you meet with Kathy it is just you and her, so all the attention is on you and your BIG day. We ordered 4 different flavored cupcakes. The Chocolate Caramel Rum, Chocolate Salted Caramel, Simply Lemon and Tres Leche. They were ALL DELICIOUS, especially with the Jamaican Buttercream..yum! We ordered 150 cupcakes and received our cake top for FREE, and with a different flavor then the cupcakes,(chocolate covered strawberry). The options are endless with Kathy's baking expertise. We will definitely order from her again, maybe for our 1 year anniversary? I am referring everyone I talk to about cakes to Kathy. I also work at a hotel, so anyone asking, she is the first to be mentioned. If you are looki... Read more

  • Kathy was simply simply amazing and she nailed our Travel themed wedding cake!!!! My husband and I did not see the finished product of the cake until we walked over to cut it and we were floored at how beautifully she nailed our vision. We went to Kathy with a Travel themed vision and asked if she could put a gold outline of the continents on our cake and she said she’s never done that before but she would try! Not only did she show us sketches of our vision during the process, but she also demonstrated which cake sizing would best display the continents. Our guest simply loved not only the look but the yummy soft taste the cake had to offer. The cake was georgeous and yummy!!! Kathy is awesome and a pleasure to work with. We can’t wait for our 1 year anniversary cake but I’m sure we’ll be using her again for other celebrations in the future!!! We love you kathy!- The Martins

  • Kathy is THE BEST. Hands down. She's friendly, sweet, and so easy to work with. The cake was gorgeous. The layers were AMAZING. She was willing to help us tweak the flavor to get exactly what we wanted, and the pricing was so reasonable. We will be getting our first anniversary cake from her as well. Try the Bailey's Irishcream. That was our middle tier, and I could have eaten that for days!!!

  • Pricey but the cakes are AMAZING!! All my Jamaican family members loved our wedding cake which was the traditional black cake with fondant and marzipan. Because we bought cake for over 75 people, a 7" cake or 5" black cake was included in our pricing which we used for our rehearsal dinner. We went with the 7" Amaretto Raspberry cake with her 'grown up' buttercream. Everyone loved it!! She is now my personal baker for any future events :)

    Thanks so much for the awesome review Peta. It was a pleasure making your cake (loved the challenge). I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and I look forward to being your cake lady for life :).

  • Our cake was delicious and beautiful. Our guests talked about it well after the wedding and absolutely loved the taste. My husband and I want to get a small cake just to have now because it was that good. Kathy did a great job and we recommend her to make your next cake.
