"Nicole made the cake for our wedding in September. We needed a four tier cake for 200+ people and with so much going on I gave her very little direction to go on. She created a masterpiece. Each layer was frosted differently but all the layers were color coordinated. We had multiple flavors and fillings. Our cake was absolutely beautiful. More importantly, our multiple tiers were delicious. Several people commented on the cake especially the handmade buttercream frosting. Nicole was easy to work with, detailed, and reliable. I highly recommend ByPensa! Thank you Nicole we couldn’t have asked for a better cake!”
“The cookies for my sister’s bridal shower were amazing! Loved the design and they were delicious!”
“Nicole made our wedding cake for our October 2015 wedding. From our very first meeting she was responsive, inventive, fair and meticulous. We wanted a vanilla cake with late summer berry preserves and a maple buttercream to highlight the onset of fall. We hadn’t seen this combination offered anywhere we looked but Nicole never flinched at the ask. Our cake was unique, delicious, FRESH and beautiful—without the use of fondant—which we weren’t big on. I have regularly recommended her to friends and family since then and look forward to enjoying more of her creations at future events!”
“Nicole made delicious cupcakes for my baby shower. Nautical themed for our soon to be son! The seashells she put on top were also little chocolates she made herself too. The cupcakes were perfect! They were moist and so yummy the second it hit your tongue. Whatever is in her frosting is magical. I highly recommend her for any special event!”
“I cannot say enough about ByPensa! Super easy to work with, great customer service, delicious/ beautiful cakes and so helpful in making suggestions as well for people like me who don’t know what flavor cake/ icing I want, how many tiers, fondant vs. no fondant, etc. I would highly recommend ByPensa for any event!”
