    Yummy cake

    Having Tara for our wedding cake was the best because the flavors were amazing.

    Having a wedding in 2020 sure wasn't easy to plan due to COVID-19. But everything was smooth sailing with Tara, because we were in communications and moving the wedding date from July 11, 2020 to November 07, 2020 was easy and there was no complications what so ever.

    Because of the restrictions for November with social gathering of only 15 people. Tara gave us an option of making our wedding cake smaller but still three layers the way I wanted our cake to be made. The cake was completely gone at the end of the night and there was no left overs.

    Thank you so much.

    Our cake and mini cupcakes were DELICIOUS! Our guests were still talking about how good the cupcakes were a month later. Especially the cookies n' cream flavour! Tara made sure all of my dietary restrictions were "covered" so I could still have the perfect wedding cake without any dairy or gluten!

    Tara was amazing and her cake was just as good. She was very professional and answered all of our questions in a timely manner, and did a great job with our cake. It was absolutely beautiful and just how we wanted it.

    I can't even describe this cake. It was amazing! We ordered cake for 100 and 65 people ate the entire thing. My husband and I ended up sharing 1 piece because is was so well loved. Our guests couldn't get enough. Highly recommend!

    Thanks Chelsea! And thank you for including me in your special day! the hall looked beautiful and your vision of the cake worked perfectly in the room!

    Tara's cakes are amazing!! Every single cupcake we tried was delicious. It was so difficult to make our final decision because there were so many flavors to chose from. She gives you samples of any kind you would like before you make your decision. She is so sweet and super responsive. The display of our cake & cupcakes looked amazing and I'm so happy we chose her!

    From the very first meeting, Tara was a complete professional. She was organized, friendly, knowledgable, and walked us through the whole process - answering all our questions (both at the meeting at afterwards) quickly and concisely. Her cake flavours are incredible! There are so many delicious flavours to choose from, and she lets you try as many as you want (and take samples home!). I had picked quite a complicated decoration on my cake from a magazine, and hesitantly asked Tara if she could do something along those lines ... She did the EXACT design :-) Her craftsmanship is pretty incredible. I was absolutely blown away when I saw the cake at the reception, and even more impressed when I tasted it! I would highly recommend Tara and can't wait to use her services again!

    Once Upon a Cake made the most delicious red velvet cake I've ever had! There was no fuss at all with any of the arrangements and they are very affordable. I was one happy bride!!

    Working with Tara was a pleasure and a very positive experience! She gave me great ideas keeping in mind my budget. My husband and I fell in love wth her cupcake samples, that it was hard to choose the flavours for our cake. We were very happy with the final product and can't wait to work with them in the future!
