These are the best cakes I have EVER had. Shanita had done 2 cakes for my daughter and both were amazing in design and taste. I am in the process of ordering my third cake from her. You will not regret having Booka Bakes do a cake for you. Her heart and soul goes into every cake she makes. They are worth the wait.

Sophia M. (Vanilla Cake w/ Vanilla Buttercream -2 Tier Unicorn Cake w/ quilted base )

Rate: Excellent

Where do I begin...Shanita made a unicorn birthday cake for my Goddaughter's 5th birthday get together and it was the most amazing cake that we had ever seen. From the carefully placed unicorn's horn to the beautiful colors in the unicorns mane, everything was meticulously done and beautifully decorated!! The meticulously decorated outside of the cake however could not be compared to the taste of the inside of the cake...the amazingly moist goodness of the yellow cake inside was second to none..leaving everyone wanting more, and everyone initially saying no, wanting some!! Just imagine a bit of Heaven in your mouth. Shanita was extremely accommodating. I had back to back Webex meetings and was unable to go by to pick up the cake and she offered to drop it by my home, without my asking. Excellent, excellent customer service
Thank you for the joy and great taste that you brought to my dear Kylie's party!

Joanne C.  

Booka Bakes had me at cupcakes! When I first tasted a cupcake made by her given to me a few years ago I’ve never looked at other cupcakes the same! I knew that God would one day arrange for us to meet and work together on a custom cake. That time came for my recent 50th Birthday Celebration! And from our 1st meeting to delivery Booka Bakes exceeded my expectations! Not only is she a talented Baker she is a sweetheart of a woman who’s very passionate about what she does. Days later and I’m still getting compliments from my party guest about how beautiful and delicious my cake was! And I couldn’t agree more! Thank You Shanita for helping to make my celebration amazing!

Cheryl J.

We used Booka Bakes for my daughter's graduation celebration and the amazing job that Shanita provided was well past our expectations. Each creation is prepared uniquely for you.
