If you want a beautiful, delicious, and affordable cake, hire Chivon. My wife and I hired Chivon for our wedding and we were very, very happy that we did.
First of all the tasting was free which is awesome compared to all the other companies we talked to. I don’t think Chivon needs to keep it this way, but it was a very nice surprise for us.
Chivon spent the time to get to know us and our flavor preferences. The tasting was perfect - she prepared samples of many different cakes and all of them were absolutely delicious. We had a hard time narrowing it down! She even spent the time to hand make cute little plates for us and label the slices. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
The cake was a semi-naked cake for 120 guests with three layers - banana and cream cheese, chocolate and salted caramel, and pound cake and strawberry. Absolutely delicious. I don’t know what Chivon does, but it’s magic.
The total cost for the cake and service was basically half the cost of any other company we talked to, and the quality of the cake was higher than any wedding cake I’ve had. This was great because before we found Chivon we were considering not having a cake - or worse; making it ourselves.
Chivon is a really kind person who we really enjoyed working with. She was very responsive, super nice and cheerful, a really delightful person. We really felt that we had a private chef that was dedicated to our event. Chivon also delivered and set up the cake at our venue, it looked so pretty and delicious.
Overall we were very impressed with Chivon and could not have asked for more. I will follow up with photos of the cake from our photographer when they are available! More...

Wish I can post a picture with my review, because it says it all! If you look through per pictures, it's the naked cake posted on 5/1/17. :) Chivon took time and careful consideration to get to know me and my taste in all things cake. I didn't want the frosting too sweet and I'm a sucker for caramel and coffee flavored things. Chivon adjusted her frostings to make it less sweet during the cake tasting and we decided on chocolate mocha with salted caramel forsting (top tier) and yellow cake with which chocolate cream cheese frosting (bottom tier). The cake on wedding day was AMAAAAAZING! My only regret is that I only ate half of one piece (shared with the groom and all) and there were no left overs! I will for sure be contacting Chivon to make a mini version of the chocolate mocha for our one year anniversary (or sooner if I can't wait that long).
She's fantastic to work with, I can't sing her praises enough and look forward to another even to hire her again.
Thank you, Chivon!!! More...
