Delicious!!! Used Delectables several times and the product is fresh and tasty! I especially love the chocolate covered strawberries, so that’s been my go too for gift giving! It’s also great to have a local bakery with great hours!!

I met Carlene 7 years ago, and totally impressed with not only her technique but also blown away with her taste for pastries, cookies, cupcakes, pies, and cakes. Carlene has a natural talent for baking and decorating. I highly recommend her for any event.
