  • Tabitha was absolutely wonderful to work with! Her red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting is SO delicious and we received so many compliments on the cake at the wedding! Unlike other wedding cakes this one stayed moist and the frosting wasn't dry at all and had tons of flavor. She was very professional and quick to respond. She got the style of cake I wanted immediately. She delivered the cake to my venue and everything was timely and perfect. I loved working with Tabitha and would 100% recommend Cakes By Design!
