"I picked up the cake for my wife's sister, this morning (the same wife who I had ordered a cake for back in Nov. with your help) and it was a success, as expected. :) It's different than the sheet cake we were used to, but just top layer served 6 people (with a piece left over) and everyone thought it tasted great. Please thank everyone involved and I look forward to getting my *own* cake for my *own* birthday, this August. :)"
"Do you sprinkle crack in the Coconut Meringues? Because I'm hooked. . .Bestest, most number onest, most amzingest, meringue ever!"
"Some of my favorites are your Basque Tart, bread puddings, passion fruit marshmallows, and some delightful chocolate caramel cake/tart I picked up one day for a dinner party ~ ALL Fantastic. If my exclamation key wasn't broken I would be using it a lot. Take care and keep up the great work making the world a sweeter place. :)"
"I just wanted to thank you for the great bread-baking class this week. The class completely exceeded my (already high!) expectations to a ridiculous degree, and i'm already feeling sad that it's over! I definitely ate a ton of bread for breakfast this morning -- thick slabs of lightly toasted pain au levain + sunny side up egg + coarse sea salt? so, so yummy. anyway, you and mark are both so incredibly kind and sweet; i had a great time and learned a lot. thanks again, and I look forward to seeing you again soon in another class. :)"
"Thank you, Rachel and staff, for your dedication to keeping things pure. It is so rare on this "left coast" land of chain food to find true craftspeople with an uncompromising passion for their trade... It is amazing how your works of art can look so good and taste even better."
"I just wanted to let you know that EVERYTHING I ordered was absolutely scrumptious! Our whole family loved [it]. We will certainly be back to Blackmarket Bakery for all our baking needs!"
"As a mother I really appreciate the manner in which you craft your products. I applaud you for using real and honest ingredients that result in a superior product. I have no qualms about feeding my children your products because I know exactly what they are ingesting. But most importantly, I like that I am able to cultivate a food quality and flavor aesthetic in them at such a young age... Thank you for doing what you do and I wish you much more continued success."
"Just ate the black widow tart from the desert Les Dames event... Oh my goodness, what a delight!... The crust was still crisp and the caramel......oh my soooo good. Just a choc party in my mouth...Yum, yum, yum."
"Thanks so much for the wonderful experience in your kitchen. The girls had a blast. Three of the mom’s called last night to say that their daughter came home and couldn’t stop talking about their time in your kitchen. It is so cool... Thanks again for the memorable experience. You are wonderful!"
"I loved attending the chocolate making class! Can’t wait for the next one…. I made the flourless chocolate torte at home last week, and it turned out great! My husband has stopped teasing me about my lack of crème Brulee skills…."
YUM, YUM, YUM... your bakery items at Kean Coffee are delightful!!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful 3-tiered birthday cake - everyone was raving about how delicious it was and asked where I got it (and I gladly told them). It was for my son's first birthday - he was born in the year of the tiger... It was great fun to decorate the cake as well and I think your concept of the semi DIY cake decorating is genius.
I stopped by and picked up some treats at Blackmarket yesterday for my daughter's birthday party. I posted about it on a blog entry and just wanted to pass it on to you. Your white peach marshmallows, coconut meringues, Blackmarket bars and creme brulee tarts were a hit!
Wow, the cakes we made in class were delicious. The ganache & buttercream combo was so yummy!!! Thank you for offering such amazing classes and great recipes.
Loved our weddings cakes from Blackmarket Bakery...complete with our addition of an archaeological excavation, ceramic initial balls nestled in flowers, and a trowel for cutting.
My MIL always complains...the usual complaint is the dessert is too sweet. That didn't stop us from picking up a tart to take over there last night for my FIL's birthday. We were hoping to take a Black widow Tart but you were out of the large one so, instead we took over a Basque Tart which was fine by me as I have been wanting to try it. My MIL LOVED it...not just a little....she had seconds, and then began to search all of her recipe books for something similar. You have NO IDEA what kind of compliment that is....she usually has some complaint about everything she doesnt make herself.
I know its a few weeks later but I really wanted to thank you guys for making my cake for my birthday. It looked great and was very yummy. Everyone kept asking where I got the cake from, it was so good! So, thank you again for a job well done!
