Adam's guitar cake was a huge success! It not only looked great, but as usual tasted great too! They didn't even save me a piece!

Ruthie, My cake was perfect, better than perfect. It was so beautiful and the guests kept commenting about the amazing smell as they walked into the ballroom at the hotel. It was better then I imagined. I can not thank you and your husband enough. It tasted amazing...so amazing there were no extras to spare. Everyone was so impressed. Thank you so much and thanks for doing the cupcakes as well. They were so pretty. You did a GREAT job. Thanks again --It was so nice not to even give the cake a second thought. I knew it was a taken care of. Thanks so very much for making our special day so wonderful.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I had to admit I was a little nervous since we designed our own cake on a piece of scrap paper. But when Mike and I got to the reception we were both blown away. The cake was not only beautiful but it was delicious. It has been a delight working with both of you. You can count on us referring and using you for many years to come. Thanks again!

Hi Phares & Ruth, Sorry it took me so long to get you pictures. I really appreciate you doing our wedding back in May. I only heard great things about the cake. You made my day so easy! It is so funny, I thought that we would have cake left over and when we got home from the reception, we told our friends to eat the cake while we were gone on our honeymoon. Well I guess the next morning ten of them were lined up to get a slice of the excellent wedding cake. As one of our friends went to cut a piece, it wouldn't cut. He immediately thought that it was ice-cream or had frozen and then remembered that it was on the counter all night. They finally figured out that it was the Styrofoam on the bottom, (the fake part of our cake). They were all disappointed that they could not enjoy your delicious cake. I can not wait till next May when Jim and I get to eat it again! Thank you both very much! You did an excellent job! Sincerely,

Rachael McClanahan

Hi Ruthie, I just wanted to thank you for the birthday cake you created for Jacob's 4th birthday. Everyone just raved about it. You made his birthday so special. And I'm so glad we found you on the web. I'll never buy another cake from anywhere else. Thanks again......

Dear Ruthie & Phares,
We would like to thank you both for the fine care you took in creating Jamie & Patrick's wedding cake. It was both beautiful and delicious. It was so reassuring to come to your home and taste all of your fine cakes. It also meant a lot to us that you spent the extra time to make pink butterflies. A special touch to a special day. We hope to order many cakes from you in the future. Keep up the good work and the personal touch. Fondly

Janet & Norm Essey and Jamie & Patrick McCurdy

Hi Ruthie,
I will definitely leave a testimony on your web-site about our cake. It was ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!! Everybody was raving about it's beauty and how it tasted so fresh. We heard from tons of people that it's the best cake they've EVER had!!! You did us proud and the caterer was so impressed that she would like to use you as a reference. She's a very close, Christian friend of the family and she's been bugging my mom ever since the reception for your number. I hear you talked to Becky quite a while when she brought the cake supplies back to you on Sunday. I can't tell you how many people have asked who did the cake and I proudly advertised for you! Thanks so much for your talent and making our reception so incredibly special!! God bless you,

Kathy & Mick

Ruthie,
We just wanted to thank you for an outstanding job you and your husband put together to make our wedding cake absolutely perfect and just the way Matt and I wanted it! It all started because Matt’s favorite cake is pumpkin so we knew we had to have it as one of our flavors. From the first time I called you, the first thing I asked was if “Pumpkin” was one of your cake flavors? And you told me, “No, but I’m sure I can find a recipe for it and try it…if my family likes it, I’ll have you come and taste it.” So we tasted the pumpkin cake and booked with you that same night. Two reason why I booked with you is because you were willing to try something you had never done before to make our wedding cake perfect and of course because your cake was so moist and delicious. And since our wedding was a buckeye theme already, we knew the cake had to show some buckeye spirit too…and that it did! Everyone loved the cake. It was a HUGE hit. Matt and I felt guilty even cutting into it but when we did, it was so worth it. Thank you for making our wedding day memorable and special! Go Buckeyes!

Dear Ruthie,
The cake could not have been better! Not only was it moist and delicious, it was absolutely beautiful. The pink ribbon was the perfect touch. You and your husband were wonderful to work with. Thank you so much for helping Megan & Pete's day to be perfect

Sincerely, Mary Jane

Dear Ruthie,
Tom and I would like to thank you for the beautiful cake that you helped us to create for our wedding. As you know, 7/7/07 was a very big day for weddings. We wanted a more traditional wedding, but wanted to cut loose, and have some fun at our reception, your beautiful cake did just that. My husband being a Buckeye Alumni, and having been a flight instructor for several years at Ohio State University, we couldn't resist a Buckeye theme for our wedding cake. Your cake brought beauty and elegance to our fun. Everyone loved the cake, and I gave your name to a few friends that have just started to plan their own weddings. When the night was over, there was left over food, and drinks, but no cake. I only hope the photographer got a picture before everyone gobbled it down. Thank you again for a wonderful touch to our wedding day

Hi Ruthie,
Vincent and I want to take a moment to thank you for the beautiful job you did on our cake. It was everything we wanted and more! You don't know how funny it was to hear an entire table arguing and making bets over whether the cake was real or when we were going to be bringing the real cake out! (Especially when the groom got in on the wager) Not only was it beautiful and delicious, but it was also a real conversation piece, giving my guests much joy. We really appreciate your effort in helping to make our day truly special. Peace & Blessings!

Sincerely,

Vincent & Angelique Goliday

Hello Ruthie,
My daughter and her husband Paul celebrated their wedding yesterday on June 29, 2002 I just wanted to tell you that their cake that you and your associates made was very delicious and the icing is out of this world. It was very beautiful also. We just wanted to say Thank you for sharing the day with us and for the wonderful cake. The wedding and reception was so beautiful and all went smoothly all day and night!

Thanks again,

Mother and family of Tabi Graham and Paul Savage

Dear Ruthie and Phares,
Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on the cake for Heather’s wedding. From the first taste Phares had us sample at the bridal show to the finished product at the Franklin Park Conservatory, our experience with you both was fantastic. When we first came to talk to you about the cake, we thought we were going to a place of business and were quite surprised when we pulled up in front of a home! The aroma coming from your kitchen was enticing, and as we sat with you drinking coffee and sampling cakes, you both made us feel like family. If that would put anyone off, it shouldn’t, because you were extremely professional in performing your services! What a great combination - a very personal touch and family warmth combined with extreme professionalism! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, delicious cake - everyone raved about it (especially the chocolate with raspberry filling)! We had some left to bring home and it was devoured by friends and family. It’s a good thing we had already frozen the top portion for Heather and Nick’s first anniversary or I do believe it would’ve been in jeopardy! You took the time to capture Heather and Nick’s vision of what she wanted her wedding cake to be and made it happen! I will recommend you highly to anyone I know and we will definitely be calling on you again for other events!

God Bless you both,

Steve and Susan Stewart

Hi Ruth,
The cake was delicious!! Thank you so much for delivering such a beautiful (and great-tasting) wedding cake! Upon meeting with you I was sold on selecting Ruthie's Cakes because your stories and portfolio showed me the pride that you take in your work... thus, I knew I was in good hands! I was surprised that you had an entire cake prepared for me to take home and sample... you were very professional, accessible, and so pleasant to work with. Not only was I satisfied (COMPLETELY) with your service, the cost was very affordable, especially when attempting to maintain a tight budget. I never had any concerns with the cake and you delivered to exceed my expectations. Thanks again for your contributions to make our wedding day such a special one. (The referrals have begun...)

Hi Ruth,
Just thought I would thank you again for the wonderful job you did on recreating the top of the Wedding Cake for my wife and my 10th Anniversary. The replica was an exact match, right down to the roses! My wife was very impressed. It was the best cake we have ever tasted! I think for our 20th Anniversary I might go with a full size recreation. To heck with diets!

Hey Ruthie,
When our favorite bakery moved out of the area I tried cakes from at least ten different places. Once I tasted Ruthie's cakes the search was over! Her cakes are fabulous beyond description and her designs are ingenious. When my son had a GI-Joe birthday party the cake got rave reviews. I am one extremely satisfied and permanent customer.

Ruthie, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful wedding cake. I had many people comment on how wonderful it looked and how great it tasted. I thought you and your husband did a wonderful job! Thank you once again for contributing to our special day.

God Bless,

Jodi & Ernie

Hi Ruthie,
We visited numerous places in search of someone who would be flexible enough to create the kind of wedding cake we wanted. Ruthie was that flexible person we were looking for. She was willing to decorate our wedding cake exactly how we wanted it (with sliced fruit adorning the top), despite her never having done it that way before. The end result--an absolutely beautiful wedding cake. Also, the cake was very delicious...my wife and I barely got a few bites of the cake before our guests devoured it. Thank you, Ruthie!

Clayton Peoples

Hi Ruthie,
We wanted to thank you for the delicious cake! It was so beautiful. Kip and I only got one bite (after we cut it!) so we are glad we remembered what it tasted like... we can't wait till 9/1/2002 so we can unfreeze the top! Thanks again & we will refer you to everyone we know!

Kip & Denise McBride

Dear Ruthie,
Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding cake!! I got so many compliments on it. It was delicious! Thank you for adding the Special touch to our reception.

Kip & Denise McBride

Hi Ruthie,
I would like to take a moment to express our gratitude for the cake you provided at our wedding. We were very pleased with everything. You were dressed professionally, the cake was beautiful, and most importantly it was what we wanted. The cake was very easy to break down to serve and very delicious! Ruthie, Phares, Thank you for making our special time of marriage even better. It was a delight having you as our cake maker. We will definitely recommend you for our friends and family!

Mr. & Mrs. Timothy R. Bush

Hi Ruthie,
Just wanted to thank you for the delicious cake you baked for our November wedding. It was super yummy and looked beautiful. We received lots of compliments about the cake. Please feel free to use us as a reference if the need ever arises. We sincerely appreciated your professionalism; honesty and fairness in dealing with us and helping us make our big day extra special. Sincerely

Renee & Michael Snyder

Dear Ruthie,
We just wanted to let you know how much everyone at our wedding LOVED your cake! All night long people were asking us who had made it & several people mentioned using you for their next party or event. (I know WE will be!). It looked so beautiful (all of the time you spent perfecting the icing color was not wasted!) and it tasted simply fabulous! There wasn't a bite left over by the end of the night - so much for getting to save some for our anniversary! Still, it was worth it to know how much everyone enjoyed it. Thank you so much for your hard work and all of your help - we truly appreciate it and we WILL be seeing you again!

Shawna & Chris Kacmarsky

Hi Ruthie,
I have never given any type of testimony unless it is truly warranted and believe me this one deserves recognition. My husband and I are very picky about cakes and the icing. I am a person who doesn't like icing and my husband has a very sensitive stomach and cannot eat a lot of sweets. So when it came time to choose a wedding cake I was a little on edge. I found Ruthie's on the internet and what impressed me the most was all of the information I needed to make a decision was on the website. All we needed to do was taste the cake. I called and made an appointment to meet with Ruthie and to taste a sample. Well instead of one sample she made three sample cakes for us to taste and we picked the flavors! My husband arrived and we sampled each cake and to my surprise it was the best tasting icing I had ever had and my husband ate all three of his pieces, completely, and the sensitive stomach was not bothered one bit. We knew that this was the cake for us! Then we looked at all of the designs and styles Ruthie had to offer. I had a hard time but my husband knew the one he wanted and with a little tweaking of colors we had the perfect cake. Ruthie took care of everything! We just gave her the address to the reception hall and the time the reception started. It was nice to know that I didn't have to worry one bit about the cake and the setup. To be very honest I had so much on my mind I didn't think about it until I walked into the reception hall after the wedding and saw the beautiful cake all setup with the topper we left at the hall. I had comments from the guests like, "We have had wedding cake before, but this is awesome". "We don't know where you found this cake but it is the best we have had". "She drove all the way from Columbus to deliver this cake, that is great because it was well worth it". So take it from a person that only recommends people if they are worth it, Ruthie's cakes are more than worth their price and Ruthie is worth more than her weight in gold. Thanks Ruthie,

Rachel Aderhold

Hey Ruthie,
Our wedding party turned out wonderfully. Everything seemed to fall into place perfectly and the cake was the star of the show! Our cake was truly beautiful, like a work of art. Everyone commented on how gorgeous the cake and the roses were - the colors were truly stunning - it was a definite hit even before anyone tasted it! And, even though I hated the thought of cutting into the cake, the french vanilla and the red velvet were as delicious as the cake was beautiful. I would recommend Ruthie's Cakes and Desserts to anyone looking not only for a great tasting cake but also a cake that will make a special event even more memorable. Thanks for everything - including the fun we had setting up the cake :)

Kimberly Austin Oser

Dear Ruthie & Phares
Scott and I would like to thank both of you for such an awesome wedding cake! It was everything we hoped for and you promised (plus so much more!) We have told everyone about you guys (and will continue to do so)! Thanks a ton!!!

Scott & Leslie Brown

Dear Ruthie,
In planning my wedding, I was really worried about expenses. When I found Ruthie's Cakes, I realized that the price was a really good deal, and I decided to go with it. What a wise decision that was! Our wedding's crowning touch was the cake created by Ruthie's. When we arrived at the reception, Ruthie had done a fabulous job setting up the display. The cake was beautiful! The fresh fruit and ornate decor were enticing to the guests, as they kept asking with anticipation when we would cut the cake. When we did, people were immediately impressed by the freshness and moistness of the cake. Thank you so much for a wonderful job.

Amanda Kennedy

Dear Ruthie & Phares
Thank you so much for doing such a lovely job with our wedding cake! It was perfect - the crowning glory of our afternoon tea wedding. It was great to work with two very nice people!

Mary & Howard

Hi Ruthie, THE CAKE WAS GREAT!!!! I just want to say that it looked beautiful and it tasted 10X better than it looked. I only got the small bite we exchanged during the cake cutting, the small bite of which I had to wipe off of my nose and eat. It was so good. We had a lot of people tell us that was the BEST wedding cake ever. I just wish I had gotten a full piece, but it was all gone. Guess I have to wait till our anniversary to have another great bite. I didn't have time to follow up with you and was a bit worried b/c I hadn't but when we got there, there it was, just like we had expected.Thank you so much!

Sincerely, Melissa & Carey Richardson
