Cotton (Nicole) is a joy to work with.
She was the first vendor willing to work within my budget, and her chocolate hazelnut cake is the first chocolate cake my fiancee has ever liked. He’s an ice cream guy, so for him to like her cake speaks volumes about the flavor.
She took what little information I had given her about my vision for the cake and far exceeded my expectations for classic look with a vintage twist. The cake table was literally a work of art, but the cake didn’t taste like cardboard – both flavors were moist and delicious and we got lots of comments about how good it was. She provided 3 cake tiers (2 flavors) for 150 people. She also gave us a complimentary anniversary layer to take home with us and a dozen complimentary cupcakes for the kids (we got to choose a separate flavor).
We provided our own cake pedestals and cake topper. She is able to provide those for you, but I was envisioning something a little different and opted to purchase them myself.
I would highly recommend Cotton’s Gourmet Gifts and Creations!
Everyone is still raving about our wedding cake.
Thank you Nicole “Cotton” for taking our vision and making it come true! The cake was a sight to behold and everyone loved the flavors. We had the Red Velvet, Amaretto and Strawberry Supreme Cake. The staff was very understandable about the Bride having food allergies and changed the flavors to accommodate us. Everyone also loved the kid friendly cupcakes that were from the Kid’s Flavor Menu. When we walked in the reception, we were taken a back of the beauty of the cake and how it was more than what we could ever ask for!!! We will definitely be using Cotton again for future events!
Our cake and dessert table was delicious!
Everyone loved our cake design, which was executed perfectly. Our guest loved how our dessert table was set up and inquired on it’s creation. When we informed everyone that Cotton’s Gourmet Creations handled every part of the design they were truly impressed. The professionalism and flexibility were huge bonuses of working with Cotton. We can’t thank Cotton enough for creating such beautiful and tasty treats for our wedding day.
Glynn Jackson The Agency would like to thank for your participation in last year’s 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Golden Scissors Awards. Your cakes that you provided for our VIP reception were wonderful. The presentation was delightful. The tastes of your baked goods were out of this world. We received rave reviews from your tasty delights. If someone were to ask us would we use your services again, the answer would be yes, without a doubt. Keep doing what you’re doing because the quality of your work is top notch.”

Thank you soooo much for our lovely wedding cake. Everyone absolutely loved the Lemonicious and Coco Cabana Lime! … Thank you so much for your professionalism…we are so very pleased with everything!
Here are some photos that we wanted to share with you.

This is William Petruzzo. I’m one of the photographers you met on Sunday. We met towards the end of the day, after you’d run out of most of your samples.
However, I can’t get that chocolate truffle out of my mind! 🙂
Thank you so much, Cotton! The cake was so beautiful and so delicious. I’ll be in contact with you soon. I think I want to order a cake and keep it all to myself.
Everything was wonderful! All loved the sweet potato cake and pound cake. I was especially pleased when my son, Kevin, enjoyed the sheet cake. He broke it down as to how and what ingredients you used to made the batter turn out that way. You know, yellow cake, pineapple filling w/whipped creme icing topped with coconut is his favorite. This was his first time having someone else make it. I haven’t have any yet; I didn’t eat anything worthwhile the whole day, so I can’t tell you how much I liked the cake. But it’s not about me, it’s about Kevin enjoying it. As for my other son, Keith, I made him two sweet potato pies, plus banana puddin.
Thanks so much for your help in making my sons Father’s Day a delight.
Thanks for your support
Dear Michele, Dana (Herbert, TLC’s Next Great Baker winner) and Nicole (Cotton):
I wanted to thank you again for your support of PattyCakes Competitions by donating such delectable cakes and fruit in support of the Catalyst for Change Awards Breakfast (Kamika Bost, owner, DE). I had calls that the cakes were so very delicious and so beautiful. I have not heard from anyone from Catalyst for Change as yet, or pictures or a booklet, but when I do I will forward the thank you letter on to you. Thank you Michele for your dedication to PattyCakes Competitions for so many years. I love you all and I hope to see you in September!!!

Delicious Wedding Cake
It’s been a while since we’ve chatted, Cotton. I hope all is well. Back in April (Good Friday) you created the most delightful wedding cake for me….
I passed this on to a friend who is getting married this year.
Hope things are well with you! The wedding went off beautifully, you can see the photos here if you like…there’s a nice one of the tiered bridal cake…of one of our guests enjoying a large slice. Everyone LOVED the cakes and thought that the individual cakes for each table was fantastic…I remember your red velvet cake from the tasting – so delicious and moist!
I hope you are well. I meant to send you an email earlier to tell you how much my husband loved the sweet potato cupcakes. We’ve tried many cupcakes in the area and he thought yours were some of the best cupcakes we’ve had. I look forward to the next cupcakes of the month! I’m sure they will be equally as good.”

Beautiful Wedding Cake!
Just wanted to send a huge “thank you” your way for our beautiful wedding cake! It attracted quite a bit of attention at the reception! Our photographer loved photographing the cake and has asked for your name to pass on to anyone looking for a good cake vendor (not that you have any shortage of business!). You went above and beyond to create that ‘vintage’ look with our cake!
We cut one of the lemoniscious layers for our cake cutting – yum! We were sad that we really only got that one bite of cake at the reception – we both really wanted a piece of the chocolate hazelnut. We came back from our honeymoon and found our anniversary layer in the freezer at our apartment and decided to go ahead and eat it since we didn’t get any wedding cake…Our overall experience with you has been wonderful, though, and we will recommend you when we have the chance. I know our guests really enjoyed the cake, and it was just a blessing to be working with such a sweet and creative person!”
Thank you again –
That is amazing, Cotton!!
Definitely send info like that, or have the wedding planners/photographers of weddings you partake in submit photos to our bridal editor….And you know I always crave the sweet potato pound cake. Will have to order some soon. So great for fall time especially!”
Talk to you soon!

Hello my dearest Cotton
Thank you…the cupcakes where a hit (at the GSA Expo)!!!… I shared them with my sales office staff (as well) and we loved them.”

Thank you so so much for the amazing wedding cake (at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel) !!! We were in awe by the height and beauty of the cake. The only disappointing thing was that my name was spelled wrong (Ihuoma not Ihouma) on one of the tiers. Other than that you did a fabulous job and we are truly appreciative of you being so willing to work with us during a stressful situation.”
