Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Reuter's Bakery

"The cake was tasty and very pretty, and they were kind and easy to work with. My only issue is that the color of the buttercream roses was far too bright - the ones in the picture were lovely pastels and the ones on my cake were really really bright. But, they let me have a different kind of cake for each of four layers, which was lovely and they did a birthday cake for my flower girl and that was lovely."
