  • Palmer's makes great cakes at great prices! We went in for a tasting and ended up loving so many flavors we had two different types on different tiers of our cakes. The pastry chef took the time to go through photos with us of decoration ideas we liked, talked about opportunities for texture and color, and accepted samples and images of the colors and types of flowers we wanted. They are very professional and the cake was delish!
