Y’all did an amazing job on my 40th birthday cake. It was as even more beautiful than I hoped it would be. We took it with us to Red Sky to celebrate with friends, and people were actually walking up to our table to ask if it was real and tell us how beautiful it was. I made sure to tell them to ask for Marea at Alpine Bakery next time they need a cake. When we finally cut it, several people we didn’t know hovered around our table hoping to get a slice. We obliged, of course. The cake got rave reviews all around. There was so much cake left that the wait staff got to take half of the cake to the back and enjoy a treat at the end of a long, busy night.
The frosting was smooth, creamy, and delicious (a detail I’m incredibly picky about), and the cake was moist and fluffy. I couldn’t have gotten a tastier or more beautiful cake anywhere else, and I couldn’t have made a cake for less money. The value of the cake, it’s quality, and it’s beauty have caused me to tell everyone about it, and my husband is so relieved because I have always made cakes for all our friends (which, for hubby, means spending a ton of money and having a messy kitchen and a tired wife for several days), but now I’ll be buying them from y’all. Y’all simply do it better and for less money than I can do it myself.
Working with Marea on the flavor and cake design was a joy. Her enthusiasm about my cake (when I know she has done a bunch of them) was so sweet. I appreciated her taking the time to really listen to what I wanted and letting me know that I needed to find the flowers I envisioned elsewhere. It made the whole process much easier, and I didn’t mind at all because it helped me get the cake I was dreaming of.
Thanks for the beautiful cake. It really made my 40th birthday special.
