    The only let down of our wedding : Not what we asked for even slightly

    This review hurts to write. I had been following Megan on Instagram since we booked her in 2020. We had specifically told her it was a rustic wedding and the one thing my fiancé wanted from our three layer classic cake was a layer that looked like wood and that had our initials carved in them.

    A couple of days before the wedding Megan wanted more money for a stand. I understand that her pricing had changed since 2020 but the last thing you need is another cost for something you’d already paid for.

    A few weeks before the wedding she wanted to change the look from the requested succulents down the side to berries and flowers . We again said no and reminded her of our conversation. It was the third time I had to send her screen shots of our conversations / or payment to remind her of our vision . I figured it was just time that had past.

    We decided not to pay her fee of another $100 for the stand as we already had paid $40 for a stand so we said we would use our own as she doesn’t really have rustic stands and I scrambled to do that.

    The day of, the cake arrived and I asked the photographer to take a picture of our initials. She came back and told me that she couldn’t really make it out very well and that she didn’t really see the succulents either when I asked her how it looked.

    This cake looked like I had done it myself. It looked nothing like her Instagram cakes. Or our many inspirational photos. It had TINY flowers around it and instead of a wood looking tied it was solid all white and it looked like a kid or one of the guests had quickly drawn a heart. You couldn’t see our initials. We didn’t even bother doing a fancy photo with it as a result . It was a $500 cake and we had nothing but a hassle for a cake that looked cheap and didn’t fit our theme.

    I expressed my issue with the cake and kindly said that I felt our cake was an afterthought . I told her that what we paid for and what we got didn’t match. She only then gave back the money for the stand we didn’t use and she basically blamed us for the reason the cake wasn’t well done and said that it was a learning experience with regards to the initials not showing up.

    She made no effort to even make anything better. She didn’t seem to underhand that we actually had a detail photo planned for this and had paid a premium for a good cake not just a random white cake with cheap flowers on it.

    I would never recommend her and I was actually really a supporter of her based on her social media and photos.

    Complete disappointment

    Mooch: Custom Confections's reply:

    Dear Ashley,
    I put my all into each and every cake, I want my clients to be happy. To hear that you are unhappy with something I created really cuts deep and makes me feel terrible. I created a design based on the inspiration images I was sent and that both parties have had access to since 2020. I have to trust that the inspiration images and written description that has been seen by the client is accurate. It has been agreed on by both parties via email that in all the inspiration images, the wood design was not included for my reference. Unfortunately the cake that you had asked for was not the cake you had in mind. I will agree, now that I have seen the inspiration photo (sent today) that the wood grain you had in mind was not the same. Unless I am asked for my professional opinion on a design, I do not feel it is my place to question a client’s wishes. I was informed that the design was to be an all white cake- and I even asked to clarify if that meant white on white for the carved wood aspect, this was approved design wise by both you and the groom.
    Please let me clarify, the lesson I learned from this was that a white on white wood grain is subtle in design- not that it is invisible or doesn’t show up at all; the texture is there. The lesson isn’t that this is a bad design, the lesson is to be very clear with the client that this is the effect they are looking for as some clients do want a subtle design. The RD + AA was carved in a heart, as seen in the images I took of the cake and sent your way.

    In regards to the cake stand, it was a $100 deposit that would be returned in full once the stand was returned the following day.

    I know that no monetary value can be put on such a special day such as your wedding day and that nothing can turn back the clocks to change the middle tier of this cake. I apologize that I was not able to give you the cake of your dreams. I understand that you feel upset over the difference in the design you sent me today and the notes I had from before your wedding, however I hope that the other wonderful memories of your wedding day overshadow a cake. I wish you and Ryan all the happiness in the world as you begin your life together.

    Delicious!

    We ordered a mini 3-tier cake and two dozen cupcakes for our wedding and the flavours were amazing! We had lemon raspberry, vanilla strawberry, and gluten-free chocolate caramel. It was great to have that variety of flavours and they were all elegantly decorated. It's not often that you see the whole dessert table cleared out so quickly! People kept going back for seconds!

    A dream come true - your cake BFF

    ALRIGHT, LET’S TALK CAKE….

    All I can say is if you haven’t booked Megan from Mooch for your 2022 wedding, you need to run and not walk before she gets all booked out.

    When I first met Megan, the world was a bit more normal than today. No one saw what was coming. But through it all she was one of the most supportive and understanding vendors I hired for my wedding. This woman is so hard working and puts her 100% into every single thing she does. From her cakes to marketing herself to writing you a personalized card on your wedding day. Not a single detail passes her by.

    Like I said, I met Megan pre-crazy world. So while I waited for the rules to allow for the biggest day of my life (so far) to happen, I ordered a few cakes from her. Not one of them disappointed.

    Halloween, check.
    Friend bday, scrumptious.

    When my wedding day arrived I had no doubt it would be just as delicious but what I WAS surprised by was by how she took on the challenge to make me my dream design and let me say it was no easy feat.

    I asked for 2 tiers, top tier was a vegan chocolate, including a vegan and gf buttercream, while the bottom was her regular chocolate recipe. The exterior had a rice paper design that made everyone do a double take.

    Got so many compliments that night both on flavor and look!

    I can’t wait to have it again on my anniversary next August ❤️

    Amazing Cake!!

    Megan was amazing to work with despite all the challenges with the pandemic. She was always quick to reply and understanding of the changes that were happening with planning a wedding during the pandemic.
    The cake looked amazing and tasted even better! The butter cream icing was to die for and all our guests raved about it! You definitely won't be disappointed hiring Megan!

    Perfect In every way!

    Megan’s beautiful cake artistry is not limited to visual! Her cakes are incredibly delicious! A step above the rest! She was professional and oh so patient with my indecision. I was taking on the gentle surprise with this cake for my son & his bride and the cake was stunning!
    You don’t need to go anywhere else...She’s the ONE!

    Amazing!! Highlight of our event.

    Ordered a custom eight inch and six inch cake for a large bbq/party…to celebrate our University and High School grads. It was one of the hottest days on record…but the cake came through with flying colours. In fact, it exceeded our expectations. Fresh, delicious and a visual extravaganza. Would definitely recommend Mooch!

    Amazing! minimalist cake design

    I loved how simple the process was for my wedding cake! And very thankful for everything as I was deciding whether to delay the wedding or change the order due to covid... but ended up sticking with my original cake design.

    Mooch: Custom Confections's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to write Mooch a review, Crystal! Your cake design is actually one of our 2021 Design Book's. Thank you for allowing me to be creative on your wedding day.
