  • I had the pleasure of working with Tai and Daneen for my Summer 2018 wedding. From beginning to end, my experience was wonderful. Tai and Daneen were patient with my "bride brain" and a couple last minute changes and provided great customer service. In the end they captured my "southern rustic chic" theme perfectly with my beautiful dessert table that included a 3 tier yellow cake with Italian buttercream, mini chocolate cupcakes, key lime pie shooters, and custom monogrammed cookies that served as my wedding favors. These ladies are truly talented and their desserts are not only beautiful but taste delicious! My guests couldn't stop gushing over how delicious and fresh everything was. Thanks so much to 5-12 Desserts for bringing my vision to life and making my big day even more special!
