    Michelle at Iced Art in Shawnee is amazing and she's done countless numbers of the weddings we've photographed. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

    I'm  using Hy-Vee for my cake, I've been to numerous weddings that have their cakes and they are always good.  We already had our tasting and loved all of the flavors.  They also aren't very expensive.  HTH

    Kristin Lynch of Kristin's Cakes.  She's young and bakes cakes out of her home as a side job.  Much less expensive than two other bakers I met with.  The cake was perfect...exactly as I had imagined it looking!  And I had so many people tell me it's the best wedding cake they've ever had.

    We're using Dragonfly. We loved how innovative her flavors and designs were. Can't wait to see the results!

    We used Just Cakes and LOVED them!  We got a much better cake than I thought I would because they are very inexpensive. 

    With a place like Hy-Vee, be careful of which location you go to.  I've heard rave reviews from some of them (like Overland Park), but I've heard not-so-hot things about others, so make sure youtalk to the person who will be decorating your cake and ask to see examples of THEIR work.

    Ask your venue too!  They see all kinds of companies, and they'll let you know who does a good job setting things up, and which cakes look and taste spectacular.  That might help you avoid hiring someone who wows you at the consultation but doesn't follow through on your own cake.

    <div>Trey&angel--You will LOVE her!!!  She's awesome and I felt like I could completely trust her!  I had around 10 people tell me it was the best-tasting wedding cake ever.  We still have some in our fridge a week and a half later...it's still amazing!! </div>

    Bridal Kitchen!  Jacque makes amazing cakes and is so great to work with.  She is affordable and was actually cheaper than any other place we looked including Hy-Vee.

    I'm using Annie O of Annie O's Custom Cakes. Her tasting wowed me! Not only because I got to pick 4 flavors to try, but she also drew the design and built the cake out of styrofoam right in front of me. I can't picture things in my head, I have to see it in person, so that helped a lot. Her prices were in the middle of the range I found, but her willingness to do as many flavors as you want and the fact that she'll make up any flavor that she doesn't already have (and that's a lot!) is what sold me.

    We're using Rebekah Foster. Her cake is soo good! The cake is not too sweet and very moist and the icing is delicious!

    We went with her bc she offered a bigger variety of flavors and didn't charge for those extra flavors. The only thing that costed extra were the fillings if they weren't buttercream but she didn't charge our top tier filling. 

    Plus, I'm from Shawnee, and she's in downtown Shawnee so I like to think of it as supporting my home town. ;)
