I called Sweet Gingerbread house for an order because my regular cookie lady couldn't do a last minute order. Definitely a blessing in disguise! Elma's cookies were not only tastier and cuter, but muc...h more affordable. She took my order when no one else would and did a fantastic job! All of my friends ooohhh'd and aaahhh'd over the cookies and how beautiful they were. From that point on, she was my new cookie lady! So friendly and super talented. Love love love Sweet Gingerbread House! See More

She dod an amazing job. She truly was so sweet the entire time and so informative on how to travel with the cake, pricing, size, opinions. I submitted a picture from Etsy to her and she made the cake ...even better than the one i submitted to her!! Will be ordering again for sure! She was so inviting when I came to pick it up, great family business and had great conversation with her and her husband! She was so patient and so sweet and truly down to earth kind. The cake PERFECT looking and tasted PHENOMENAL! Will be coming back! See More

Elma was simply AMAZING! I contacted Sweet Gingerbread House to place an order for personalized cookies as favors at my wedding. She went above and beyond from the beginning design stage to the very e...nd of the order and delivery process! Elma had immediate and constant communication to make sure the cookie design was exactly what I was looking for. Her creative genius is outstanding and not only was the order beautiful, the cookies were “to die for” yummy! I would highly recommend SGH for any occasion! See More

Elma is as genuine as she is talented. I think her work speaks for itself, but it tastes just as good as it looks. She will bend over backwards to make sure you are happy. I recommend her completely!

Seriously talented baker with mad artistic skills and amazing taste in her hands.
I gave her 6 different pictures of the features I wanted in my cake and she was able to put them all together for a go...rgeous cake that tasted like a dream. I'm very picky about chocolate cake and this one was absolutely perfect.
I also got cookies that were far and away the best I've ever tasted. Buttery, flakey sugar cookies that had a lovely crunch, with decorative frosting that was the perfect amount of sweet without being cloying.
I highly recommend Elma's work. She is a consummate professional, communicates in a timely & effective manner and her creations are not only beautiful but also delicious.

Sweet Gingerbread House went over and beyond to make the perfect cake, smash cake and cookies for my son's 3rd Halloween Birthday Party! 1. she runs her business well - she is responsive, sweet, and... attentive to details! I really appreciated her quick and thorough communication with me. 2. The cakes she made me were adorable and exactly what I wanted! Everyone was amazed at the how she well she executed the design! 3. Not only were the cakes gorgeous they were delicious! I'm not a fan of how fondant tastes and she was able to make the cakes with buttercream! They were moist and yummy! My favorite flavor was vanilla with strawberry buttercream / the vanilla was something special I don't what it was but it was just special tasting. My husband's favorite flavor was the chocolate with vanilla cream.

I will definitely order more desserts from this bakery!!!!

Elma agreed to make smash cake for my daughters 1st birthday despite her busy schedule. She was very attentive to my needs with respect to cake. Elma made a a beautiful sheep smash cake as I had reque...sted. She made the cake keeping in mind that it was for 1 year old. No artificial colors. She made cake of all natural ingredients with no food color and yet it perfectly matched my daughters birthday party theme. The cake was delicious. I never knew plain vanilla cake could taste so good. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends for their cake needs. Huge plus for me that she stays right here in my neighborhood. See More

Not only does Elma create the most divine cakes and cookies, they actually taste scrumptious. She is a true culinary artist.

Elma is so sweet and bakes straight from the heart. We commissioned her to bake my daughter's 1st birthday cake and smash cake. All of the cakes turned out so beautifully!

Everyone raved over not... just the look, but the taste. I even had one friend who isn't a fan of sweets come up to me and say, "I tried the cake and it's absolutely delicious!". I have to agree with them.

So great to have a baker like her in the neighborhood. I promise you won't be disappointed!
