"Thank you so VERY much for being such a HUGE part of our wonderful day!!! Not only was the wedding cake absolutely delish, the design and details that Dock requested and the presentation was much more than either of us had dreamed of for so many months. Again, I am so happy we chose you, you made our wedding complete."

Ms Louise,
 I just want to say “THANK YOU’’ for such artistic and tasty cakes for my granddaughter Hayden’s 3rd. birthday party.  The castle cake was just out of this world, it was everything and more than we wanted.  The Snow White cake looked as if she could actually walk off of the stand.  Hayden’s special tiara cake was exceptional too.  The staging of the cakes made them as if they were out of a fairy tale land which made the party complete.  You helped make the day perfect for all of us, but especially for our little ‘Princess’.  The kids loved the face painting also, you did an awesome job with them. We will certainly be calling you for all of our cakes!!!!
Thank you again,

       "Not only did I feel like a beautiful princess on my wedding day, but my wedding cake looked like something from a fairytale. I knew it would be delicious but I never dreamed it would be so gorgeous. All those hanging pearls made my cake look so elegant. It even brought happy tears to my eyes when I saw our initials within the filigree designs on the sides. We were almost afraid to cut it because it was so beautiful; we wanted it to last. One of our favorite photos of our wedding day is of us cutting our beautiful wedding cake. All of my husband's family wanted to take some back home with them - to PA. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special."

     The day we set our wedding date is the day I called you to make our wedding cake. I had seen and tasted your cakes before and I knew that one day I would ask you to make my cake. It was everything I had dreamed of... and more! Thanks for saving the date for us and being available for us so many times and making our wedding complete.

     My wife and I would like to thank you for making such a lovely wedding cake for our special day. Until I explained, she had no idea that you had been my foods & nutrition teacher in high school a few years ago. (I can still make some mean biscuits - better than the wifey can!) LOL I remembered watching you decorate cakes for faculty functions and was mesmerized by the talent and skill (not to mention patience) that you posses to create such works of art with food. Everything was almost as beautiful as my new bride and I just wanted to let you know that you made us both very happy. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

     I'm writing this review because if I let my husband do it there wouldn't be room for anyone else to post! Needless to say, our wedding cake was absolutely delicious - and beautiful! I had to steal my husband away from the cake table at least three times. He doesn't usually eat cake, but he absolutely loved our wedding cake! In fact, everyone did. I was also very pleased, of course, because not only was it delicious but it was beautiful. Everyone raved about how pretty it was. Thank you so much Ms Louise for making our wedding celebration complete. And a special thanks to your daughter who told me about you at work! Others agreed with her that you make the finest! Word of mouth is definitely the best advertisement. I'll be calling on you again, especially for my husband's birthday this year!

     When I sneaked a peek at the cake table while you were decorating my wedding cake, I was so amazed at how you did all that! I asked you if you would teach me how and you said "Of course!" I don't know if I'd every have enough patience to do all that you do. The finished cake was everything I expected - absolutely breathtaking! Thank you so much Ms Louise. I was so proud of my wedding cake. There was hardly a crumb left after the reception! What little bit that wasn't served was wrapped up and taken home by mama, my aunts, and even the preacher. He even said it was the best wedding cake he'd ever tasted and he'd tasted hundreds!

     I didn't know you made cakes prior to my daughter planning ithe anniversary party for my husband and me. If my friend (Margaret) hadn't told me about you I guess we would have onlyhad a sheet cake from the local grocery store! You made our celebration complete as we renewed our vows in front of our friends and cut the wedding cake we didn't get to have 50 years ago. We were so young and foolish then (and still are) when we had a very small wedding at the marriage chapel in SC. Thank you again for contributing to our special 50th wedding anniversary. The cake was so lovely and delicious. I'll be honored to "pass the word" about your culinary skills.

     I heard you were a talented lady but you really outdid yourself with the mini cake. It was a surprise for my wife for our anniversary. She was a little shocked that I would remember it in such a way. Instead of flowers and candy, that was usually the norm for me, her eyes got misty when she saw the miniature wedding cake with the little bridal topper. She knew immediately after she tasted it that Ms Louise had made it. I couldn't keep that a secret. I'm glad I asked around to find the best baker and one that was reasonable. Thank you for helping me pull this off for a special 10th anniversary surprise for my wife.

     By the way, my wife just informed me that you had actually made our wedding cake! I guess the bride takes care of all those things and I was just clueless.

     I told you in high school that when I got married I was going to tell my future bride to make sure my former home ec teacher makes our wedding cake. Not only did she ask, but you did a beautiful job on our cake. And, you made our son's 1st birthday cake too! Hopefully you'll be around and available to make him many more! Just save the date - March 25th each year! Thanks again. Always...

     It amazes me how you can take a birthday invitation, draw it only a sheet cake with a toothpick, mix colors of icing identical to the invitation, and create an almost replica on the cake! My children are so excited each year for their birthday (and so am I) when their birthday cake arrives. Whether it's Blues Clues, Sponge Bob, Spider Man, or Dora the Explorer, your cakes are beautiful and utterly delicious.

     Margaret should get a commission for referring you to us to do our son's wedding cake. Our daughter-in-law's mother passed away a couple of years ago and I had the honor of being asked to help her plan her wedding and reception. It was a pleasure to meet you and after our initial consultation I felt as if I'd known you all my life. You are a lovely person inside and out. Thank you for being patient with us, but most of all, thank you for making my son and daughter-in-law so happy with such a beautiful cake.  Margaret was right! It was so moist and the best cake I'd ever tasted. We appreciate all the help and advice you shared with us to make the wedding event complete.

     Thanks for the memories! We thawed the cake topper for our first anniversary and it was as good today as it was a year ago. It was still pretty, still moist, and still just as delicious. When we have our first child we'll be calling you again for a special birth day cake and future birthday celebrations.

     Our wedding day would not of been complete without you! The cake was the talk of the neighborhoods for weeks! It was delicious and so very moist. Thank you for all you did to assist us in planning and making our wedding day beautiful.

     The birthday cake you made for my husband's 60th birthday surprise party was beautiful as well as sinfully delicious. He liked the idea of being lei(ed). I also want to thank you again for the beautiful job you did on the wedding cakes of both of my chldren. I can be a witntess that I have never tasted a wedding cake so moist and one that is still absolutely delicious the day after (if there is any left over). I would suggest for anyone that orders one of your cakes to make sure you order one large enough to serve your guests (and then extra) because they will want more than one slice! And you will definitely want "a little piece to take home with you."

     I want to personally thank you for the grooms cake that you did for my son. It was the one that looks like a laptop computer. He works on computers every day and is a computer tech in South Carolina. He was in awe of it. He has even shown pictures of it to all of his friends and has it on his cell phone! It was so delicious as well as lovely and realistic-looking. The wedding cake with the seashells was a work of art. My new daughter-in-law was completely blown away. Also, you made my grandson's birthday cake with the barnyard theme. It was so precious. I can't thank you enough for doing such a great job. You are truly an extremely talented lady.

     Weezer! I don't know how you did it but the groom's cake of the laptop computer was a kick ass cake! Not only was it delicious but at first glance I thought it was a real laptop sitting on that table! You did an awesome job and I'm still in awe of how you do what you do. I took photos of it with my cell phone an showed it at work (after the honeymoon of course!) Thanks again! I love you!

       You are very blessed and so talented! I attended a wedding where one of your wedding cakes was the center attraction at the reception (July 2008) and it was so beautiful. Not only that, it was the best cake I've ever tasted in my life! I'm serious! I had to go back for seconds! That was the creamest buttercream icing and the cake was exceptionally moist. I don't know how you do it! My husband and I will celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary in December '08 and I'm telling you now, I'd like to place my order for an anniversary cake. Plus, my grandson has a birthday in November, and I'll also be calling you for a special birthday cake for him. Anytime you want to drop off a chunk by my house on your way to the beach, just do it!

      My son (and family) loved the Elmo cake you made for his birthday. Every crumb was eaten that day. My birthday is in November and I want a cake in the shape of a butterfly. I'm confident that you'll do a beautiful job and I know it will be mouthwatering as well. Tim and I are looking forward to our wedding in April when you create our special wedding cake too! You are so special and I'm so glad someone referred me to you.

     The cake you made for my wedding was absolutely gorgeous!! It turned out way better than I anticipated. As a bride with a hectic schedule, you helped make my day so much easier by being so agreeable and helpful with the planning of my cake. Your ideas and creativity made choosing a final cake so much easier. The cake was beautiful and delicious!! Six months later and people are still raving about how moist the cake was and how beautiful it was. My supervisor was at the wedding and ended up using your services to make her wedding cake in November and people are raving about that one as well. Thank you so much for all your help, advice and for the wonderful cake. It was a masterpiece!!

       Oh Ms Grier! You outdid yourself this time! My (Nov 2008) wedding cake was a fairytale come true! I know we had to downsize it a tad due to the sit-down dinner for our 300 guests, but the matching cupcakes on the stands were also a hit with our guests. Everyone raved to me about such a moist wedding cake. I'm sure you ran out of business cards because everyone was wanting to know who made it. By the way, did you see your name in our wedding program? We listed you as the cake designer and "The Cake Lady" under your name. :-)  Thank you so much. Words cannot express how much Tony and I appreciate all that you did to make our wedding day complete.

     Thank you so much for helping out! The two red velvet cakes with the cream cheese icing were absolutely delicious. The wedding party enjoyed them as the main dessert for the wedding rehearsal dinner. The little bit that was left came home with me; I brought it to work and the guys dug into it like there was no tomorrow! I really appreciate you lending a fellow catering colleague a helping hand.

     Louise, I just visited your website ...Wow! You have created some beautiful pieces of art here! They look too good to eat...but I hear they are delicious! Who knew retirement could be so much fun, huh?  Congratulations on your success! Your cakes are gorgeous! I wish I lived closer so I could enjoy your hard work! I heard about the cake for my mother's birthday. When I called to wish her a happy birthday she was still so excited and told me all about the special cake and balloon, and you singing Happy Birthday to her. And she said the cake was delicious, so I know I can take her word for it.  I'm glad Cindy thought of it!

      You made my wedding cake last year and it was such a huge success that I knew I had to commission you to make a cake for my first baby shower. The cake was absolutely darling and everyone thought it was wonderful. Your cakes are always so moist and decorated in such a creative and beautiful way. I know I will be using your services to make all of my son's birthday cakes in the future! Thanks again for making a special time even more special.

       Louise, I just wanted to send you a note and let you know what a great job you and your staff did assisting with Catherine's wedding at Holden Beach, NC.  You guys were on top of everything.  We could NOT have pulled this off without you.  Thanks so much for pitching in and helping clear the plates when the caterer forgot to send someone for that.  That was above and beyond the call of duty.  The cake was wonderful.  It was so beautiful, and tasted even better than it looked.  Everyone commented that it was the best wedding cake they had ever eaten.  You have truly found your calling.  We can't thank you enough for directing the wedding, coordinating vendors, managing the reception, and making the cake, and all the other little things you did to make their special day so perfect.  My contact information is below.  Please feel free to use any of these comments any way you like.  Also, please let me know anytime you need a reference.  I will be more than happy to provide one.  You are a Mother of the Bride's dream come true.  Thank you again.

   The graduation cakes were a huge hit! People were so impressed at the individualtiy put into them. Matt was so excited with the Progress Energy symbol and Kelley was amazed at how "perfect" it was. They were absolutely delicious and more than fed our crowd. We have some to take to the beach for our week long vacation! Thanks so much for helping to make their special time even more special. I bet nobody else had any cake that fit their future plans like Matt and Kelley. Maybe you'll get some extra business after them being such hits!
Thanks again!

Ms Louise, I couldn't have asked for a better birthday cake for my daughter's 1st birthday!!! Everyone loved it. The floral artistry underneath the cake stand (as you suggested) was performed by my brother, as I have no decorative skills! It was beautiful with the bumble bee cakes and turned out beautiful! I've sent you some photos for you to choose to put on your website. Once again, thank u! Can't wait to use your services again!

P.S. The cake looked AND tasted Wonderful!!!
