CakeSuite Wins 1st Place in Visions of Gingerbread Exhibit
CakeSuite's Michelle Ashear Klem took first place in the Stamford Museum's Visions of Gingerbread exhibit.
“Sublime and unforgettable”
“There were just three cupcake varieties available the day I finally got my hands on some — although they plan to offer more flavors as business picks up. All were by far the best in their class.”
“The golden butter cake was topped with a generous piping of an almond buttercream... the pairing was sublime and unforgettable. ”
“CakeSuite's devil's food chocolate was topped with a chocolate frosting
that was so thick and rich it was almost solid fudge.”
