I was at the North Hills Farmers Market this weekend and sampled the most delicious strawberry cake I’ve ever had. Truly. I went home with one, and shared with family and friends. I don’t ever write reviews, but this was just too good not to share. I will be a repeat customer for sure!

Asali made my wedding cake. It was the moistest red velvet cake ever. Even now, 8 years after the fact, we talk about how that was the best cake we’ve ever had.
