Rafi's Pastry & Cakes

Worst wedding cake

It takes a lot for me to actually write a review, but Rafi was really a disappointment. The first meeting with him was very casual, but I should have realized from the beginning not to trust him because all the pictures he showed us were NOT even his cakes! They were other cake designers pictures he simply downloaded on his ipad and talking us into replicating others' work. This should have been a que, but anyway, we decided to go with him because his pricing was a bit cheaper. It's true when they say you get what you pay for. During the design process, he constantly tried to push his old designs and was trying to convince us to use "recycled designs" to make his job easier, at least that's what it looked like. It was a nightmare trying to show him my dress design to incorporate into my cake. I think he's just too tired or not open to new ideas at all. Anyhow, we settled for a nice cake, but came wedding day and oh boy was I disappointed. The cake showed up at 9pm!!!! I clearly told him to not be late since I heard from others that he's not precise on time. This was the worst wedding cake. It showed up crooked and cracks in the fondant. My bridesmaids were sticking fresh flowers to cover it up. Anyway, his pastries might be decent, but never would I trust him with an event cake. He is too all over the place and confused. Very disappointed Bride & Groom.
