let me share my cupcake experience; I got 4 dozen cupcakes for my daughters party. there were only 12 girls and a couple of parents so i planned on sending some home in goody boxes. before the party ended they were all gone! a couple of the girls hovered around the dessert table and cupcakes started to magically disappear. a few of the moms had called their husbands to turn around, drive back and try the cupcakes! my husband, who was banished upstairs, had one of the kids sneak him some (shame on him) there was an absolute uproar when i ran out. someone even threatened to bring their very colicky newborn over every night until i shared the name of the bakery. later that night my friend found the last two (that i stole from one of the younger girls and stashed in the back of the fridge) and ate them! so, yeah i'd say the cupcakes are good

I contacted Once Upon a Cake to do a cake for my mom's birthday. I found them after reading the reviews here on Kudzu. I was very pleased with the cake and will be definitely be using them again for their services. Their cake wasn't only gorgeous to look at it was so delicious too! I've already recommended them to friends and co-workers.

Maria made the most amazing cake for my mom's 60th birthday party. She designed and beautifully executed a cake with a full replica of Stonehenge on top. It was so cool! The design was incredible, and it was exactly what I wanted. The attention to detail was exceptional and the service was fantastic. Delivery was excellent too. I will definitely use her in the future for special cakes. It was the hit of the party. Most importantly, it tasted as good as it looked.

I have had the opportunity to have Maria's cakes on several occasions. All I can say is Wow!!!! I have never had a cake so moist and yummy! I am so glad that I found my own "personal" baker to call my own. My family is very picky about cakes and she has won them over!! Please don't hesitate to order a cake from Maria. Not only is she talented, but she is very professional and a genuine sweetheart! Cas

Please let it be known that "Once Upon a Cake" works with everyone and to top matters off the cakes are wonderful. To this day people are still talking about how GREAT the cake at our reception was. We look forward to ordering more in the near future. She made it such a memorable experience that I consider them to be friends of mine now. We look forward to doing business with them more in the near future. (smile) God Bless

last week, received custom fondant "fairy cake" for my sister's baby shower. A- It was absolutley beautiful. Many of the guests stopped by not just to look at it, but to take photos! B-It was delicious! The thin later of fondant had a light lemon essence. They had a waiter assisting with party that sliced and distributed (I think it was 60 slices, but not sure as he sliced very fast). In approximately 5 minutes, ALL GONE! No leftovers! I've never seen anything like that!
