Rubik's cube cake

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Joe for his beauitful work on my wedding cake. As a bride that was planning a destination wedding and a surprise Rubick's cube wedding cake for my groom, I found Joe to be professinal yet approachable. He calmed my every nerve and communicated with me regularly to ensure my cake would be what I wanted for my wedding. On the wedding day, thanks to Joe the cake was the hit of the night. The cake was beyound my expectations and absolutley perfect. Considering all the factors that went into this event: a surprise unusal cake two days after Christmas I couldn't ask for anything better! THANKS JOE!

The chocolate hot chili peppers J.S. sent are utterly divine. And thank you for the 80% buttons, they taste fantastic and have an incredibly smooth texture.

I met you last month & tasted your wonderful cake)!  We are definitely going with you & want the cake for about 60 people (as of now).  We loved the cake you made for us!  Do you need us to sign a contract & mail you a deposit for it?  If so, please send me the contract and let me know how much the deposit will be.  We thoroughly enjoyed your cake & getting to meet with you! Thanks so much for everything & I look forward to seeing you again soon!

My husband and I met you at breakfast at Frog pond and you invited us back to the shop. We sampled and purchased some wonderful chocolates and have told many people about your shop.


Thanks again for all your time today.  My husband and I love the candy shell favors and hope our daughter does too.  We sent her a picture and hope to get back to you soon.  In the meantime, we're enjoying your chocolates.  They are soooo good!!!

My husband Matt and I were in your shop the other day and were blown away after eating your chocolates. My kids teacher's are so wonderful so I would love to bring them a little assorted chocolate box. I would like to spend $12-15.00 each for 6 total teachers.

Joe ,
Thank you for the fabulous cake you designed for my friend Stacy's shower. It was a true "masterpiece" and tasted like heaven. I will be bring in photos as soon as I get them so you can see the happy Mom to be with her colorful rug cake.
Many Thanks,
-K. E

Joe, thanks for responding so promptly. We have yet to find chocolates as good as yours anywhere (we just returned from San Francisco visiting our son - and their choc. wasn't as good!). Thanks so much. We love your chocolate. Our order should be 24 ebony/ivory, 12 Frangelica truffles, 12 choc/raspberry truffles and let's go with 24 sugar-free choc. covered cherries (milk chocolate).

I would like to thank you for delivering a special birthday cake to the Don Cesar Maritana on July 16th for my daughters birthday. Living in New York City, I was accustomed to fabulous cakes and chocolates, however... your Chocolate Cake with the banana cream filling, and the roses you set at the dinner table were ABOVE & BEYOND my expectations. I cannot thank you enough for your time and effort in helping to make my daughters birthday so memorable. The cake was sooo extraordinarily delicious (truly divine!)that we are still enjoying it day by day (slowly savoring every last morsel). I will be so happy to refer you to all of my friends at the St Petersberg Country Club for any and all future events.
