After trying a couple of larger bakeries, which were overpriced and/or inflexible, where we felt like a number, I searched for someone who baked cakes for the fun of it. I found Shelley, at Pearl's Unique Cakes. She made us the exact cake we asked for, no grief about personalizing it. She came to our home for the tasting, and the samples were so good, we couldn't wait for the wedding to come, just so we could eat the cake! She did NOT disappoint on the Big Day either. The cake leftovers were still moist a week later! She made a beautiful wedding cake and groom's cake, and supplied us with two full sheet cakes, for less than what the Big Bakeries were charging for half the cake, NOT customized to our preferences, and it tasted better than theirs. If I could recommend just ONE of our vendors, I'd tell every bride out there about Shelley.
