BEST WEDDING CAKE AND CUPCAKES EVER – Juanita and her staff made my wedding STRESS FREE when it came to the quality, taste, design, and creativity of our wedding cake. She took her time, designed a cake based on my wedding dress, colors, and taste, and delivered a wedding cake (and DELICIOUS grooms 'cupcakes') that my guests could NOT stop raving about. It was delicious, exquisite, elegant, and affordable. Juanita and her wonderful staff were courteous, skilled, professional, and reliable. They were also fun, creative, and accommodating, and have my husband and I as customers for life.
Cupcakes for a special birthday, Boston creme, red velvet, coconut, chocolate mouse. Cakes were dry and lack luster. Toppings were basically whipped cream with a little sugar and a hint of vanilla. Toppers did not cover cakes which allowed the cake of be even drier. Cupcakes were small in portion. The red velvet was actually a spice cake without a cream cheese icing. Could only identify the mouse topper as chocolate because of the light brown color. The chocolate cake crumbled when forked. Very disappointed and embarrassed at party with product.
Dulce = Delicious – I started out just going to Dulce Desserts for a possible wedding cake, what I found was an amazing person who has an unbelievable talent for baking life's sweetest moments into a single bite! Juanita is a wonderful happy-go-lucky gal who has a tremendous amount a talent for baking. After talking to several different people around town and doing some small tastings, I had not found anyone suitable for our summer wedding cake. then I went into Dulce and met Juanita. Her personality was so outgoing and vivacious I felt as if we were long lost friends! She has this amazing ability to make you feel as if you are the only person important even though you know she has a million other things going on. Her cakes are moist and delicious and I have never liked fondont icing and I told her this and she insisted I try it, I would like it. After much of me telling her it's not you it's me, i finally tasted it and found the only fondont icing that actually has flavor! We ended up doing a five layer cake with three different flovors, lemon cake with her amazing homemade lemon curd and lemon buttercream icing with fresh strawberries, Chocolate and butter cream cake with white chocolate icing and a chocolate genache swirl and a rasberry puree, and then an amazing spice cake with butter cream icing and a caramel swirl. The flavor was to die for but the beauty of our cake was just as fantastic! Our guests has told us how beautiful our cake was and how they each would share so they could try all of the flavors! Along with our wedding cake we have had Juanita make two different birhtday cakes, several cupcakes and an assortment of cookies ofr parties we have had. Every single time we are left wanting more or her delicious treats and she is so easy to talk to and a very upfront and honest owner that I never leave with a concern of there being something ese better. Of course with anything big a cake you should always try and call in your order as soon as possible! Every bite is worth it!
Special treats with superb service! – After reading a June '08 review and hearing raves from friends, I made a point to visit the little bakery on Villa Place - Dulce Desserts. When I arrived, I was greeted by the owner who was in the middle of creating a memorable and unique groom's cake. She put down her pastry bag and invited me to look at a variety of her creations. She and her employees were so friendly and helpful. I selected a variety of cupcakes - banana split, vanilla, chocolate chocolate - to share with my family. (I have 2 boys.) We all agreed that the cupcakes were the BEST we'd ever enjoyed. These cupcakes are not to be swallowed in 2 bites. The richness of the cake combined with the lightness of the whipped icing make these cupcakes a gourmet delight!
I like these folks and their creations so much that I brought an out-of-town guest to the bakery for an indulgence. She and I will be back with others in tow.
Dulce Desserts is not just cupcakes. Their bakery goods and specialty cakes are works of art - delicious ones at that.
poor customer service – I tried calling on a Thursday about the possibility of getting a cake for Saturday. When I called, I said, "I realize this is short notice, but I'm looking for a cake for Sat".
[Dulce] "That is short notice, but tell me what you were looking for".
[Me] "Anything really".
[Dulce] "Is it s special occasion?"
[Me] "No, we just have some family around and I was looking for a nice dessert."
[Dulce] "Oh, then you should just have our gourmet cupcakes."
[Me] "well, OK, I guess I -"
[Dulce] "Thank you, goodbye." Click.
So, they *might* be able to make me a cake on two days notice if I had a special occasion, but if I don't have a good reason or a specific cake requirement, then I am relegated to cupcakes without further discussion? They left me with the impression that not all customers are created equal -- and maybe that is reality, but it's not good business to leave your "sub-standard" customer feeling that way.
By comparison, on friday (now, 1 day notice) I called Sweet 16th and had a similar conversation until the cupcake line, at which point the person from Sweet 16th took a moment to look if there were any options for a short notice cake. And, as luck would have it, they found a chocolate cake for me. And now, my business is their's to lose.
Wow! What a great cake! – Our daughter was married on May 23 and we had a small, family reception at Mere Bulles in Brentwood. None of us lives in middle Tennessee, but we made a trip there a few weeks before the wedding to get everything set. On a word-of-mouth recommendation, we visited Dulce Desserts and met with Juanita, the owner. She sold us. Within a few days of exchanging information, including a photo of the style of cake, we had our cake established. On the big day we arrived at the restaurant after the wedding and there sat the cake. Juanita had delivered it and used the hydrangeas that we had left for her to decorate it. It was lovely. But what about taste? Well, delicious hardly does this cake justice. It was a delightful and mouth-watering treat. European butter flavor (and she had stressed that she uses lots of butter), alternating icing on the layers of hazelnut cream and chocolate ganache, then the whole cake iced with buttercream and covered with fondant. Not fond of fondant, you say? Well, you haven't tried Juanita's fondant. It was excellent. We have a family of very good cake bakers and our matriarch was so impressed the we had to send her home with a couple of slices to savor. We simply cannot imagine another cake that would have been more satisfying for our baby daughter's wedding. Thank you Dulce Desserts. Thank you Juanita.
Best Desserts in Nashville – Juanita Rocks! Her creations are absolutely amazing and out of this world. Everything I have ever had from her bakery has been amazing. We have sampled quite a bit since we are getting our wedding cake from Dulce. We have ordered cakes, cupcakes, and a few pastries from her. Everyone who has sampled them has loved it! Her chocolate and hazelnut cake with her homemade chocolate buttercream will send through the roof it's that wonderful! She also makes her own caramel that she'll use in her cakes and cupcakes! We are so excited to see our wedding cake! Go to Dulce, you won't be disappointed!
Wonderful Wedding cake and wonderful experience – I was just recently the MOB for the first time (only daughter). We had so many recommendations for wedding cakes but after tasting Juanita's cakes at a Bridal Show we were sold. Meeting with her in person sealed the deal. Not only are her cakes and buttercream (UMMMMM!) fabulous, she worked so well with what we wanted and had great suggestions. The wedding cake was BEAUTIFUL and delicious. She worked out a monogram we requested and copied the lace from the wedding dress. The groom's cake (chocolate, chocolate, chocolate) was incredible and inhaled by the guests. The whole experience was great. This may have been my only wedding cake but if I ever need a special cake in the future I will get it from Dulce Desserts
A great spot for a quick bite, or a custom cake – I stumbled upon Dulce Desserts while exploring the growing Edge Hill area and thank god I did! I stopped in to look at the selection of tasty treats and ended up taking half a dozen of their cupcakes home to my wife. Many calories later we have become huge fans of Dulce and all of their made from scratch confections. My wife and I have used Juanita for three birthday cakes and have been always had a winner on our hands. Compared to other bakeries in the areas Dulce beats them all with taste as well as customer service.
Best Desserts in Music City!!!! – I first met Jaunita and her fabulous cakes when I was looking for a wedding cake for my May 2007 wedding. I must begin by saying I work for a high-end restaurant company so I have nortorious high standards for quality of ingredients and customer service. After first bite of Dulce's cake at a Bridal show, I was hooked I had never tried a cake quite like it rich, creamy, decadent but not overally sweet. After a weekend of craving more of her cakes I scheduled an appointment for my fiance and I to meet Jaunita, she accomodated our schedules completely and it felt like we were invited into her home. Before I could even try the chocolate icing my fiance ate the entire plate of cake he also could not believe the melt-in-your-mouth quality of Dulce's cakes. Jaunita told us of her passion for high quality ingredients how she made all of her cakes from scratch and even makes her own caramel and lemon curd. We were blown away, we fell in love with her ideas for our wedding, her cakes, her passion and her!!
We obviously booked her, and our wedding and groom cakes were stunning in presentation and taste and her service was impeccable! I have also called on Jaunita in need of her desserts for other occasions (mostly cause I couldn't wait till my wedding to have that cake). I served her cupcakes at a dinner party, and my guests were speechless upon tasting her vast variety of delightful mini-cakes!! I recommend dulce de leche, my favorite flavor. I purchased a Berry Neapolitan for my boss's birthday and now he is a raving fan too! My favorite story however, is Jaunita was able to recreate for my parent's 20th wedding anniversary an exact replica of their very 1987-ish wedding cake, mauve frosting and all!!!
The service is over the top, and the desserts simply can't be put in to words you must put them in your mouth!! Dulce is reminiscent of times gone by, when shop owner's knew their customer's names and took deep pride and passion in the products they served.
