I used White Rose Bakery out of Oregon to do my wedding cake. We tried the samples at her home( where she does these cakes) and they were pretty decent.
However, the cake at the wedding was HORRIBLE! We had a dessert and wine themed wedding, with the focul point supposidly to be these great cake. We had so many pieces left, and whole pieces laying around on the tables after the reception. We spoke to some of our guests later, and they said it was the worst cake they had eaten.
Very flavorless, and bad. I emailed the owner, but she was so defensive that she has never had any other complaints, and asked why didn't I save her a piece. Well, sorry but I was too busy getting married, and on a honeymoon. I wasn't thinking about saving a piece of cake for 3 weeks just to show you how crappy it was.
I ended the communications with her because I was getting no where.
Please, if you are looking for a cake, don't go here. She isn't too difficult to work with, and look's wise, it was BEAUTIFUL, but it tastes like ***.
