“Thank you so much for creating such a masterpiece! The wedding cake looked amazing (exactly how we envisioned it) and tasted fantastic. It truly helped make our wedding day very special.” (David and Mark)
“Thank you for creating such a beautiful and delicious cake for my wedding! Everyone commented on how gorgeous and unusual it looked (“like a lovely present wrapped too beautifully to open!”). My Aunt (the family cake guru) declared it to be the most lovely and delicious cake she had ever enjoyed. Even though people did no want to turn into rush hour traffic leaving the reception, every single guest stayed to make sure they had a piece of cake (or two!)… You made the whole process fun and both Harriet and I enjoyed very much meeting you. It makes the memory even more special to me knowing that someone so genuine and talented was taking care of this part of the wedding! Please accept our heartfelt wishes for your continued success and happiness!” (Eileen and Timm)
“The Cake you created for us was absolutely stunning! It was beautiful, quirky, fun and elegant. Each piece was paraded in with a sparkler and lights dimmed, exactly what it deserved! Everyone commented on what a delicious and perfect ending to the day. You did a wonderful job for us and we won’t be waiting a year to eat the top layer! We look forward to another LPK’s creation!” (Susan and David)
“I can’t thank you enough for making such a wonderful and great tasting cake. It looked just as I wanted it to… The cake was a great hit, so many guests complimented us on the cake and many of them hand numerous slices because it was sooooo good.” (Erica and Dave)
“As always it’s a pleasure to have you at my events…! You present beautifully and your commitment to sustainability is beyond reproach – a true testament to what we are all trying to accomplish. Anything we can do to help promote local businesses like yours is a pleasure.” (Jaye, Brewer’s Plate 2009)
“Lorne and I wanted to thank you again for the beautiful cake you made for my mother-in-law’s birthday party. She was so surprised by its beauty, and it tasted fantastic! We ate this cake with much awe and reverence, believe me!! It was truly a work of art. It was perfect.” (Kelly and Lorne)
“Thank you so much for the breathtaking cake. You are truly talented. I loved the teapot cake with all the little teacups. Thanks for contributing to making my tea party so special. Everyone can’t wait to see the wedding cake!” (Shari)
“I wanted to thank you immediately for the incredible, fabulous, delicious and beautiful cake. It FAR exceeded my expectations… Stunning… It got RAVE reviews from everyone. THANK YOU, it was the highlight of a delightful celebration!” (Esther)
“I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the fabulous pastries you did for Paula’s shower on Sunday. They were absolutely delicious, gorgeous to look at & beautifully done. You are a true artist & everyone could not stop raving about them. The only problem was they went so fast. I had so much actual food leftover, but no pastries… I do have to say you’ve become a huge fan of my kids, Jared was lucky enough to scarf down the last mini cupcake when he got home & Amanda now wants you to make her birthday cake! Thank you again & everyone at the shower is looking forward to the wedding cake next month…. (Judy)

“Thank you so much! The Pastry Basics course was amazing! In four full hours we learned trade secrets, and how to prepare amazing lemon curd, ganache, shortbread, and Italian meringue, among other things. Your professionalism, punctuality, and sense of humour made the class fun and enjoyable. We all agreed you were a wonderful teacher. And, we were left with LOTS of goodies to enjoy afterward. All in all, it was a delicious way to spend an afternoon.” (Lisa)
“Thank you so much for all the great things you’ve taught me about baking and chocolate… I had such a great time at both workshops. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into teaching the classes and all the notes you prepared for us.” (Diana)

“I just wanted to write you and tell you again how great I thought the workshop was. Lisa, Michelle and I agreed that we learned a lot from you and we LOVED the cakes/icings that you made. I have never liked lemon desserts in the past but I love that cake and I can’t wait to make it for my family. We hope to sign up for more of your courses in the future. Thanks again.” (Ivanka)
