    Delicious and Beautiful

    We got 200 decorated mini cupcakes and a small cake for cutting. Dianna made 3 different flavours of cake, made a flower with the icing and used chocolate to create an F (for our last name) on each of the 200 mini cupcakes. These were perfect because people would take a few at a time and we really didn't have a lot left over. Our cake had reverse roses and it looked and tasted awesome. Best Wedding cake I have tasted! ( we had banana chocolate chip!) Her price was very, very reasonable compared to others.

    Cakes and Takes's reply:

    Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm so glad everything worked out! I wish you both a life time together as sweet as the dessert on your perfect day!!!!

    Beyond Exceptional Service for a Reasonable Price!

    Diana from Cakes and Takes was amazing right from the first email! When we met with her she was excited about our wedding as we were! Her cakes are delicious! If we could have we would have gotten every flavour after taste testing them. Her photography was exactly what we were looking for: fun, natural and unique. She was very open to any ideas we had for both photos and cake. We loved her so much my husband and I decided to get family photos done with her once a year :)

    Beautiful and delicious!

    We were delighted with the cake Dianne created for our wedding! She listened closely to our design and flavour ideas and incorporated them expertly into a magnificent culinary work of art. The cake she created was just as we had envisioned. She advised us on how to include both of our taste preferences (I like a vanilla base and my husband prefers chocolate) so we could both enjoy the cake equally. Our guests loved it as much as us. Her pricing was very reasonable and her communication prompt. We highly recommend Cakes and Takes. Dan Bart, Kingston

    Cakes and Takes's reply:

    Amazing! Thank you both for choosing me to help bring your ideas to life. It's not often that I receive a request for an elegant water themed wedding cake, I really enjoyed making it.

    Cheers,
    Dianna

    Quality and Efficiency, a great 2 for 1 deal!

    We cannot thank Dianna (and Maddy) for capturing our day and for providing 3 delicious kinds of cupcakes (plus a gluten free option, and a slab cake to cut into for our wedding day. Dianna was so easy to work with, we knew after our first meeting there was no other option for our cake and photography. Dianna provided us with some different options for cupcakes to try and choose from and gave lots of samples of shots she/Maddy took. They took the time to set up each shot and provided us with so many wonderful memories. The day after the wedding we had a quick glimpse into our day with photos Dianna fixed up and uploaded immediately. We then were provided with a set of at minimum 150 (sometimes upwards of 250) pictures a week, until now just over a month after our wedding we have all of our pictures! We cannot thank Dianna and Maddy enough. The price was perfect. Our family and friends are amazed with the efficiency and quality of photos provided. If you have a chance to work with Cakes and Takes you will NOT be disappointed!!

    Cakes and Takes's reply:

    You're amazing guys, thank you so very much!!! I've never had the opportunity to shoot in such a beautifully rustic barn. The wedding was perfect with great weather, a fun bridal party and wonderful family :)

    Amazing quality!!

    Dianna was amazing. She was able to last-minute change our order, was in constant communication, the set up was fantastic, and obviously the cupcakes were to die for. Thank you again Dianna, we will be using you again!!

    Boat Wedding

    Dianna did a great job on our pictures and gave us an amazing deal (cake + pictures + photo albums) for a reasonable price. She went above and beyond what was expected from a photographer and captured all the important moments of our special day. We couldn鈥檛 be happier with a result :)

    Cakes and Takes's reply:

    Thank you very much Anna! Congratulations to you both on a unique, fun water wedding! It was great to party with your family.

    Dianna was over-the-top when it came to the final product. She really seems to put in 110% effort. I was highly satisfied and would recommend her to friends. Great service and lots of help in making decisions. Beautiful work that you almost don't want to eat.
