  • Zest did our wedding desserts (10/12/19) and they were absolutely incredible. Gabriella was professional, informative, and flexible from the time we did the cake tasting all the way through to the wedding! We had an array of desserts including a pumpkin cake two-tiered cake, pumpkin pie, apple pie, and a mix of different cupcakes (carrot, pumpkin, champagne) and every single thing was so delicious and beautifully decorated! I’m so glad we went with Zest and can’t wait to get desserts from them again in the future!

  • Gabriella was fantastic to work with! Our cake tasting was a lot of fun and we got to try out a variety of cake flavors we were interested in. We are really big cake people and it exceeded our expectations for both flavor and design. It was absolutely stunning and tasted incredible. We continued to eat leftover cake for the next week! Highly highly recommend Gabriella and Zest! They really are the best :)

  • We chose to do 4 different types of cupcakes for guests, with a small cutting cake for pictures. From the cake tasting before hand to setup the day of, I highly recommend Zest. They have a variety of classic and unexpected flavors combos, and they are all amazing. All of the cupcakes were gone after our wedding!!

  • Emailed back and worth without Gabriella. Which worked best for my fiancé and I. She was prompt and friendly. Called to make a deposit which only took seconds.

  • Zest is a no brainer for wedding cakes. Despite wanting a nontraditional cake, with only 2 layers and a bit funky, Gabriella supported my vision and absolutely nailed it. And the cake was DELICIOUS. Mmmmm. Highly recommend the Champagne flavor.

  • Working with Gabriella at Zest was so easy. We had a vision of what we wanted our cake to look like, and brought a few pictures to the tasting with us, and she gave us good advice about what would work best given our anticipated guest count, budget, etc. I was a bit indecisive and changed my mind a few times as we were finalizing the details of the cake, but Gabriella was very patient and we were so happy with the outcome!

  • If you are looking for an amazing business run by wonderful people with even more wonderful desserts, Zest is your place! Our cake was not only beautiful, but absolutely delicious! We went with champagne cake with a strawberry mousse and have gotten countless compliments on how yummy it was! We also ordered Zest's cookies for our dessert table (chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal coconut butterscotch) and they were outstanding! Highly recommend Zest for your wedding in the Mystic area!

  • It was a delight to work with Gabriella from Zest. My husband and I love cake, so choosing a bakery wasn't an afterthought — we were serious about choosing someone who could create something beautiful and with great flavor. We opted for a naked cake with layers of lemon cake with lemon curd and "American frosting" (I love sweet, and she obliged) which was topped with lemon buttercream and gold foil. I also sent her a figurine of our dog, which she positioned at the bottom layer and make it look like he was nibbling from the cake. I plan to order future anniversary cakes from Zest!

  • Zest was incredible to work with! We loved their cake so much at the tasting for our wedding cake that we decided to also order one for our rehearsal dinner too! We are still getting complements on how delicious the cake was, especially the raspberry mousse filling! Our wedding cake was also stunning- it exceeded our expectations!

  • Zest provided our pretty wedding cake on 10/21/18. The owner, Gabriella, was phenomenal from start to finish. The cake was so delicious and everything we had hoped it to be. The service and delivery that Zest provided was flawless. Would definitely recommend!

  • I worked with Gabriella at Zest to create the most perfect surprise groom's cake for my now-husband at our rehearsal dinner. I found a photo of an edible sailboat perched on top of a round sea-like cake and Zest was able to recreate it perfectly. To boot, the cake was DELICIOUS. The design process, ordering and communication were seamless. I highly recommend Zest. Thank you, Gabriella!

  • We used Zest Fresh for our wedding in nearby Mystic, CT in mid-September 2018. We reached out and coordinated through Gabriella with relatively short notice and she couldn't have been more helpful and flexible. We ended up doing an assortment of small desserts like macarons, cupcakes, and whoopie pies - they were all amazing but the latter was a real standout! She was very warm and calming during the tasting when we discussed logistics etc - not to mention hospitable with the cutest setup in their bakery for the actual sampling. Things went off without a hitch on the big day with a beautiful display that resulted in multiple compliments from our guests! Not a single negative thing to say.

  • We found Zest through our caterer and we're so glad that we did! The whole experience was wonderful. My husband and I were planning our wedding from across the country, so we wanted to try and do our food and cake tastings on the same weekend. When I called Zest to make an appointment, I explained our situation to Gabriela. She was so sweet and was able to work it out so we could do our cake tasting the same day we had our food tasting scheduled. When we got to the bakery, Gabriela greeted us with a big smile and brought us over to the most darling setup with coffee and a plate of individually baked cupcakes and fillings in the flavors we wanted to try.. heaven! They were honestly all so good, I don't think we could have gone wrong. We sat down with Gabriela afterwards to discuss flavors, decorations and details of our big day. She made it all so easy, we didn't have to think about it again after we left the bakery that day! The only thing I could think about was that I couldn't ... Read more
