  • Our experience with Veronica at Southern Gold Leaf Cakes couldn't have been better. She was professional, flexible, and creative, and most importantly the cake was delicious and beautiful. She also made gluten-free/dairy-free cupcakes that were enjoyed by guests with allergies and many without! We loved our cake, which featured diamond tiers and the beading design on my wedding dress. Veronica's prices are also unbelievably reasonable. Five stars on everything!

  • Both our wedding cake and our groom's cake were beautiful. They also tasted great! So many of our guests commented on how delicious the cake was. Veronica was great to work with. She was one of the few people I found who knew how to do false tiers to produce a bigger cake that added so much to the decor. We had a four-tiered cake (with a false tier) and a "kitchen cake" (a sheet cake that cuts just like the real one, but is kept in the back, cut and bought out for guests already cut.) This was such a great value. If you want a beautiful delicious cake at a great price, then definitely talk to Veronica.

  • Veronica made a beautiful cake for my wedding 10/27. We chose her based on the recommendation of our Wedding Planner (Catherine Katz-Cherrished Celebrations) as well as the great reviews on line. Veronica met with my Mother and I and providied samples of the flavors we were thinking about. My Fiance had given me several photo's of what was important to him in the appearance of the cake and Veronica was excited to be able to make our vision a reality. We chose a double layer cake with 2 different flavors and frostings that were all covered in her WONDERFUL home made fondant. I admit, I was worried that fondant would taste like card board, but hers was light and tasty. The cake was moist and beautiful. She delivered it herself and helped me (with my shaking hands) cut the first slices. My guests raved about the taste and look of her cake and I would recommend her to anyone! I will surely use her in the future for my Husbands business meetings as well as for other events. Thank you Veroni... Read more

  • Veronica made special "cake cups" for us. We had a basic idea and she took it and ran with it. They looked fantastic and tasted even better! We were able to choose a variety of flavors too. It was hard to pick our favorite from all the ones we tasted! We loved that she was willing to do something different for us.

  • Veronica and Southern Goldleaf Cakes made the most beautiful, most delicious cake I could have imagined. She was very responsive in getting just the right flavor (amaretto pound cake) and just the right design. I got a work of art as well as a very tasty dessert. My good friend also surprised me with one of Veronica's cakes for the rehearsal dinner -- it was a very clever design that was also delicious. Southern Goldleaf Cakes is a small operation that will give you the personal attention that you deserve in planning your big day.

  • Veronica met with my daughter and son in law months prior to the wedding. She brought a variety of cakes and icing flavors they were interested in for tasting along, with sketches of cake designs based on what the bride/bridegroom wanted. Then she guided them through "building" the cake that they wanted which included cake flavors, icings and the details of the cake design to create what they wanted. It was a delightful experience for the family. Veronica kept in touch as she said she would. On the wedding day, Veronica came and assembled the cake which was EXACTLY what they wanted and looked perfect with the other decorations. The bride/groom had selected 3 different cake flavors and icings and made sure to have some of each type. There was plenty cake left over which our family enjoyed for several days!

  • Southern Gold Leaf Cakes did mine and my husbands wedding 6 years ago, and did a WONDERFUL job! The morning of, she showed up extra early to make sure that everything was perfect, and that everything was in order. She delivered the cake, and set everything up, and everyone was so impressed and fell in love with the cake. It was absolutely beautiful, and the taste was incredible!!! I now live in Tx, and will tell my friends that are getting married about her!!
