Perfection!

5/ 5

Our daughter’s wedding cake from Desserts by Dana was truly a work of art. Dana took a roughly drawn sketch and turned it into a magnificent wedding cake. It was so meticulously decorated that our guests could not believe the flowers were made of icing! Beyond the beauty was a most delicious cake with delectable fillings and an incredible grand marnier butter cream icing. It was perfection!

Beautiful and Delicious Cakes

5/ 5

I ordered some cakes for our daughter’s third birthday party, and they were absolutely amazing! Everybody at Desserts by Dana was so accommodating, and as a result, we wound up with the perfect cakes! They all tasted fantastic and looked gorgeous, too! Dana made them coordinate beautifully without having them match exactly. They were designed very artistically. And let me reiterate… They were all delicious!!! We actually ordered Dana’s famous Southern Lemon Cake for Easter, too. It was also above and beyond!
