Fall Wedding  “I didn’t get to see you the day of my wedding on October 18th and so I just wanted to follow up. You did such a wonderful job with our wedding cake! I had some issues with the flower delivery so I didn’t have quite what I wanted for the cake but you made it work and it looked absolutely beautiful! Oh, and it tasted amazing. We had so many compliments on how delicious it was! The pumpkin spice was especially popular. Thank you so much for all of your hard work! I will certainly recommend your work to anyone I know getting married in the area. ~ Elizabeth & Winston

Fairytale Wedding  “Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious! Raquel made every cake a different flavor with a different filling. The cakes were moist and delicious! It was also exactly what I wanted. I gave her ideas of what kind of cake I wanted and she delivered! We were shocked at how beautiful the cake was and and at an extremely reasonable price. She delivered and set it up also. Everyone loved it. I also needed gluten free and she was able to make those too! She made some beautiful cupcakes that matched the cake in gluten free! Thank you Raquel! You did an amazing job!” ~ Giovanna & Chris

Love Birds  “Cannot thank Raquel enough for making our day perfect. Not only was the design EXACTLY what we had asked for, the cake itself was to die for. Two of our layers were the pumpkin spice with cream cheese filling. They were phenomenal. There was only enough left for my husband and I to enjoy with our coffee the next morning. Would absolutely recommend Raquel’s Creative Cakes to anyone with an upcoming event. Raquel was professional but made us feel like friends throughout the whole process. Thanks again for everything Raquel. XOXO” ~ Nicholle & Clint

Bear-y Love  “Raquel was unbelievably creative in taking our idea for our wedding cake, improving upon it, and making it a reality. She was a joy to work with. The best thing was that she came to our cabin the morning of the wedding and decorated the cake right there so it was absolutely fresh and didn’t get damaged during the delivery process. We had people at the wedding reception going back for seconds and thirds of the cake. A number of people said that it was the best wedding cake that they had ever tasted and wanted to know where we got it. For the quality and the number of people the cake served it was an outstanding value. She will be the person we have make all of our special occasion cakes from now on!” ~ JeanAnn & Bill

Little  Dogs  “Raquel was awesome to work with. She assisted us greatly with choosing a cake design, flavoring and delivery. Her help in finding us a custom made cake topper and accompaniments was excellent. She made sure everything was just right, and arrived to set everything up on time and very eager to help. Her cake was absolutely beautiful and tasted great. The local artisans she recommended for our cake topper and “little dogs” were also the best. I would recommend Raquel to everyone for help with there wedding and bakery needs.” ~ Carol & Andy

Wedding Cupcakes “I contacted Raquel for my daughter’s wedding cupcakes after meeting her and tasting her entries in a chocolate cook-off contest in Bryson City. She was very attentive to our needs and wishes, and went above and beyond with suggestions and even set up the entire table for the reception quickly and professionally. The cupcakes were amazing. I highly recommend her for your special event! ~ Suzy
