Amazing Gluten Free Cake

I am so happy that we went with Megan for our wedding cake. She created the most beautiful delicious cake from the inspiration pictures that I provided. We were so happy to find a wedding cake vendor that provided gluten free options, which made the experience so much better for us. I would highly recommend her because the process is so smooth and simple, which is helpful when planning a wedding!

Megan is as amazing as her cakes are.

My request was a simple classic 2-tier cake with fresh florals in the colours of my wedding (pink and white), plus 1 simple piping to blend the line where the tiers were stacked. I couldn't be more impressed as she understood me completely. She even rents cake stands, which my partner and I did rent and returned the next day.

I do recommend the cake tasting box, so you can try the flavours she offers. That way you'll know exactly what you are getting.

Amazing cake and a pleasure to wok with!

We had the pleasure of working with Megan for our wedding cake. She was easy to work with and highly responsive. Megan provided the florals and she worked with our schedule to deliver the cake on time.

The cake exceeded our expectations, both in taste and how pretty it looked. We received many praises from our guests. We went with the high tea and strawberry matcha flavours, both were delicious and not overly sweet.

Would definitely recommend Megan and Mooch!

Best Cake Ever

Megan did the best job EVER on our cake. I changed the size and design a few times as we booked her two years before our wedding date- and she honoured her original price despite inflation and many companies that jump to current rate when you request a change. Megan did the most beautiful job. It was delicious, gorgeous, and she even sent a photo the night before to ensure we liked the flower placement. Not only that, Megan knew we were on a tight budget and gave us an extra tier at a great cost. Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day the best day of my life!

Cake was very very small, highly expensive and the taste was not at all good

The cake was very small, the decoration on it was already coming off and it's taste also not good...
None of my guests liked it

I couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better experience!

Mooch Custom Confections, owned and operated by Megan, exceeded our expectations for our wedding cake. From the initial consultation to the final product, Megan was a pleasure to work with. She took the time to understand our vision and preferences, and offered suggestions and options that perfectly matched what we were looking for. The cake itself was not only visually stunning, but also delicious. Many of our guests commented on how delicious the cake was. Megan was also very responsive and accommodating to any requests or concerns we had. We highly recommend Mooch Custom Confections for any special occasion cake.

Most delicious part of our wedding!

Megan was greay to work with, especially during covid. She was so understanding and made the cake of our dreams, and it was impeccably delicious. We will have to order another one just for one more taste. Thank you for being a part of our special day

All the love felt by Mooch by Megan! Amazing!

Megan was very attentive throughout the entire process of customizing a cake for our special day. We got Cinta in Classic 2 tier that was semi-naked design with flavours of vanilla cake, fresh strawberry compote, and vanilla italian meringue buttercream. It really tied together the rustic and wild theme of our wedding and tasted amazing! Every little bit of love was with us and felt from Megan. Highly recommend Mooch by Megan!

Beyond unprofessional in her conduct

I struggled with whether I wanted to write a Weddingwire review because I had already posted one on another platform, but I thought about it and in light of recent events, I felt like I needed to write this review. I initially hired Megan in 2019 for my 2020 COVID wedding. A couple of notable things that happened that I felt demonstrated Megan was unprofessional:
- When I reached out to her to inquire about ordering my cake, I hadn't heard back from her in a week, so I sent her a message asking if she was going to get back to me because otherwise I need to go look for another cake vendor. Her response is that she is very busy with weddings and I should wait 72 hours for a response. I reminded her that it's been almost a week and I hadn't heard back. Turns out she was having issues with her custom domain emails not sending out (not even to junk).
- I sent her some inspo photos asking if she could do something similar. She was confident in saying yes, but then a few months before the wedding date (and several months after I sent her a deposit), she said that the design I had in mind is actually more challenging to make so she asked if I can pay a bit more. I didn't know what to say at that point so I just said yes and paid her.
- The night before I was supposed to pick up my cake from her (i.e. two nights before our wedding), she messages me at 10PM saying she can't replicate the design I want and asks how flexible I am in the design. She said she is trying but she just can't do it. I was super shocked and disappointed because 1) why would you message someone this at 10PM the night before pick-up, and 2) if she wasn't able to do it, and hasn't even bothered to practice, why did she commit to being able to do it?!
- The end design was fine, but not really like the inspo pics I sent her.
- She immediately asked me for a 5 star review. It wasn't like her asking how everything went, but rather "please give me a 5 star review." I wrote her an email saying that I was uncomfortable giving her a 5 star review because a lot of things didn't go right. I explained how I felt about the experience, and she apologized and said she was dealing with personal issues. She went into a lot of detail about her issues but I won't repeat that here because they are personal. At the time I listened to her because she kept saying she treated me as a friend.
- Later, she messaged me offering to make it up to me by offering a complimentary mini cake on my birthday, which was two months after the wedding date. She asked what date my birthday was, and if I can get my now-husband to pick it up, and I said yes and thanked her for the kind offer. I insisted it wasn't necessary but she said she felt like I've been really supportive of her business so she wanted to do this for me as a friend. Birthday came and went, no mention of anything from Megan. The next day, I got a message from her saying "Sorry I missed your birthday" and that was it. No mention of wanting to make up for it, or anything else. That was the last direct conversation I had with her.

I felt like Megan used her personal issues to deflect the concerns that I had with her. I get that everyone has personal issues, and I definitely respect that Megan is human. However she didn't really take ownership of a lot of the concerns I had, and just attributed all of the issues I had with her conduct to "personal issues."

I have been a huge supporter of Megan since I discovered her, having personally ordered at least 6-7 cakes for various celebrations, on top of my wedding cake, AND posted about Megan countless times on various forums when people were asking for suggestions on celebration cakes. Around this time, she has messaged me to let me know that because of my helping to promote her, she's been getting a lot of celebration cake orders and she appreciated that I was helping to promote her.

In addition, due to COVID, I had rescheduled with every single one of my vendors with the exception of Megan. She was telling me that her business was really struggling because of COVID so I wanted to show my support by still keeping the same cake order from before, despite not really needing it anymore because our celebration was kept to a very small one with just immediate family in our backyard. She kept saying that she treated me as a friend, so I supported her as a friend, but in the end it felt like it was just an excuse to be unprofessional.

So the reason I wanted to post a Weddingwire review this late in the game is because I found out recently that Megan has been writing complaints on a vendor platform about clients who write less-than-5 star reviews. Not only is she NOT taking accountability for her actions as a less-than-stellar vendor, she's going out of her way to smear her clients as well. In response to my review on the other platform, she said that she's adapted to the challenges of COVID, basically alluded to the fact that she's no longer what I've described, but based on the comments from her other recent clients, it sounds like it's still the exact same Megan as before.

I said this in my other review, but Megan's cakes are delicious. There's no doubt about that. I went to another wedding recently where the cake was nowhere as delicious as Megan's. BUT, it doesn't excuse her conduct as a wedding vendor. Part of the job should be to provide good service, and not just bake delicious cakes. Unfortunately I would never buy anything from Megan again, and would not recommend her.

I included screenshots of the inspo pics I sent her, along with the final cake.
