  • Veronica was very helpful and did great design work on the "daisy" cupcakes. She was wonderful to work with and the cupcakes were fabulous.

  • To build on all the other reviews, I could not be more pleased with our decision to have Veronica help us with such an important factor of a wedding--the cake. We actually chose cupcakes and a small cake to cut. Her personalized tasting was so helpful, and she is wonderful! We ended up sitting and chatting with her for several hours after the tasting! The cake was beautiful and delicious and people are still talking about the cupcakes two weeks later! She did a wonderful job and I cannot thank her enough! I would recommend her to any and every couple getting married!! Thanks so much Veronica for helping us with our special day!!

  • I can echo the comments of many other reviewers. From the personalized service with the tasting, to the end product, my experience with Veronica was outstanding. Somehow, she produces quantities for large crowds that do not taste like a lot of mass produced cakes. You'd really have trouble distinguishing the taste from your grandmother's cake. She also walked me through the planning process and, last but not least, the cake was beautiful. I plan to use her services again for smaller scale events because the cake is just that darn good.

  • I heartily recommend Southern Gold Leaf Cakes for your wedding or event! I was absolutely thrilled with my wedding cake--it turned out just the way I wanted it, and the cake was delicious. I also ordered mini-cupcakes which were fabulous as well. I received numerous compliments from guests on the cake and cupcakes. The owner is extremely responsive, professional, and provides a wonderful product at a great value. Thank you!

  • Veronica of Gold leaf cake made my wedding extra special. From the time she came out to my house for the cake tasting up to the wedding day. We had to post pone our wedding because my husband illness and reschedule everything, but Veronica put us at ease by letting us know that we had nothing to worry about and she reschuled us without a second thought. Oh and the best part was the cake, it was beautiful just as Veronica sat in front of us and sketched it out. The flavored I chose was strawberries with real strawberries in the cake was the best, so moist. And my husband chose chocolate with cream cheese frosting and he loved it. I will use Veronica again and will recommend her for any event. Thanks for making Kelcey and my day so special.

  • Veronica was amazing. She asked all the questions I did not think to ask. She also made sure I got all the elements I wanted and never stated it was not possible. She prepared several tastes for me and my bridal party when making our decision and she gave insight that helped me understand what amount is needed for my guests without over doing it. The sizes she used where larger than the average size and her price was amazing. She also made suggestions that prevented my guests from looking like they had smurf mouth with my special blue tinted cake. Her sugar work was amazing and unique letting me know, that no one else had a cake like mine. She also made the most beautiful design and I got so many compliments on it. She will be used again.

  • Veronica was amazing! This was the most beautiful cake I have ever seen and it was delicious! I have had so many people ask where I got this cake. It was apple spice cake with caramel buttercream icing and the recipe was Veronica's original creation. It was moist and dense without being too heavy and just sweet enough without throwing you into a diabetic coma. Veronica was flexible at the pricing and delivered my cake to Kittrell, N.C. an hour away. I am so thankful that I found Southern Gold Leaf Cakes! My wedding was amazing and the cherry on top was this beautiful cake!! Thanks so much Veronica!

  • I am 47 years old and never been married before, so looking for a person to do my wedding cake was very important...even at the very last minute! I had Google "affordable wedding cakes in durham nc area" all lower case. There it was, I was so please to find Southern Golden Leaf Cakes website it was so user friendly. All the pictures of past weddings and wedding cakes were oh so beautiful and that is what I'd wanted for my big day. It said on the website "Contact Us" and I said a little prayer and called the phone number and left a voice mail message on April 10 and Veronica called me back that evening and left me a voice mail, I was doing homework and missed her call. But, the next morning I'd called her and she was very pleasant and attentive...yet, was she available with such a short notice? Yes! yes she was, I was overjoyed and she was happy for me after I had shared my story. I met with Veronica the following Tuesday, I knew exactly the cake it was her Bridal Budget Package 1, M...

  • Veronica was amazing!! She always answers emails right away and is so nice about everything. Her prices are phenomenal, especially for the amazing quality of product and service she provides. We got 3 flavors, which we were not expecting to be in our budget, but her packages are great. I would recommend her to every bride I know in the area and cannot wait to go back for our anniversary cake!

  • Veronica did a very original cake for my daughter's bat mitzvah. Her theme was Irish Dance and she re-created my daughter's solo dress. It was beautiful. She also made 2 side cakes that were allergy-free and they were absolutely delicious! Very happy with the product and the service I received.

  • Veronica did a great job with our cake. You really can't find better value for your money. Her butter cream frosting is very good. I think she is an especially good choice if you don't want fondant.

  • Instead of having cake at my wedding I wanted to do only pies and had a very hard time finding a place that would only do pies. When Veronica was recommended to me by another vendor and heard she only did pies, I had to meet with her. Veronica was beyond wonderful, sweet, and a talented baker. The pies were without a doubt a hit at the wedding and many came back for their forth piece. I love Veronica, her personality, and she can without a doubt bake amazing sweet treats!

  • Veronica is a creative, wonderful baker! We chose a caramel buttercream frosting for our white cake and the flavor was absolutely delicious. Our cake eas very detailed with a lace effect and ruffles, she ia a true artist! Our only wish that our cake would have been more moist than it was, but other than that we were very happy and pleased! Thank you Veronica!
