 “We used Mimi’s for our wedding in March. After searching vigorously for the right cake vendor, we came across her website and saw that her aesthetic was the most refined and closest to what we were looking for. She was able to meet with us right away, was so easy to work with and we were very impressed with how her samples tasted. We chose her and are so thankful we did. The cakes were stunning! Not to mention the taste we had at our first meeting didn’t even do her cakes justice. I’m not even a huge fan of cake and I couldn’t get enough! Guests raved about them and are still talking about it after the wedding.  I would 100% recommend Mimi’s for whatever event you need cake for. I will be a return costumer for every occasion I have from now on.  -Payton

“The red rosette cake you made for my son’s wedding was a hit!  It was beautiful with the red roses all over.  Very moist and delicious which I was very happy with since we didn’t have time to do a taste testing.  The sheet cakes we got were all very good.  My favorite was the almond/strawberry swirl.  A few days later we got the “Super Y” cake for my grandson’s second birthday.  Super Cute!!  We have found a new cake lady for all of our future parties.  I have already recommended you to many of my family and friends.”  -Teresa

“Chloe was born during the Blizzard of 2012, so I wanted her first birthday party to reflect her blizzard baby nickname. I simply told Mindy what the theme of the party was and she created what I was envisioning. Not only was the cake adorable, but it was amazingly delicious. I don’t know of anyone else who does what she does, and I’m looking forward to Chloe’s next birthday already. I highly recommend Mimi’s Sweet Cakes and Bakes.” -Amanda

“My cakes were amazing! Mimi’s cakes are not only a work of art but delicious as can be. Not a piece left! They were so incredible that I had a hard time even cutting them. My husband was even amazed by the cakes which he usually doesn’t comment on. Parker hardly even cared about his birthday party because all he wanted to do was hang out by the cake (“Mommy, this is so cool” “Hey everyone look at my cake”). All Jackson could keep saying about his cake is “This is sick(slang)” “Have you guys ever had a cake this awesome?”) Never has our family been so excited about cakes. Wish I would have found her sooner! Can’t wait to have her make the goodies for my baby’s first birthday!! Until then I just may have to figure out what I could order a cake for so I don’t have to wait until June.” -Bridget

...

“I wanted to let you know that your cupcakes for our bridal shower were an absolute hit!!! Truly made our day and were delicious!

Thank you thank you thank for sharing your talent and making those of us hostesses look like the “hostess w/the mostest!” The bride to be said this was her favorite shower – cupcakes being the winner!” -Teri

“The year 2013 has been a roller coaster ride for my daughter, Audrey starting with brain surgery on March 21st, balance therapy after that, and finally eye surgery on September 5th, so when we started planning for her 10th birthday I had no questions about who I wanted to make her special cake. I loved the fact that all I had to do was tell Mindy the party theme we were going with and she came up with all these awesome ideas. With not an ounce of creativity running through my blood, I was so thankful for Mindy’s! Mindy made the most amazing tie dye cake with a peace sign, along with cupcakes and cookie pops. Everyone LOVED them. But most importantly, our little miracle was over ecstatic about having the “coolest” cake and cupcakes. Her friends raved about it and told their parents they want one just like that. I handed out all the business cards I had that day! Thank you Mindy for helping make her special day even more special! No doubt I will be coming back for more!!!” -Tiphany

 

“Mindy made my daughters 2nd birthday a Smash with the adorable Minnie Mouse cake and matching cupcakes. It was so creative and they were delicious! All my guests could not believe how cute they were and my birthday girl loved them!” -Joni  

 
“Once I found out Mindy finally opened up her business, I got my foot right in the door and asked if she would do my daughter’s birthday cake.  She turned 4 and wanted a Minnie Mouse party.  Mindy did a wonderful job making the cake and cupcakes (see pictures in her gallery).  My daughter had the biggest smile on her face once the cake/cupcakes were brought home. The flavor of the cake was amazing, we did almond vanilla with almond buttercream, it melts in your mouth!  We are going to use her again once my youngest daughter turns 1 to try out new flavors, I cannot wait!!  Everyone at the party commented on the cake and wanted to know where I got it.  I would recommend Mindy for anyone’s birthday, get together etc.  Thanks Mindy!! -Angie 

 
“I have been fortunate enough to know Mindy for almost 25 years. Growing up I remember Mindy’s mother would always make the most artistic, creative, great tasting cakes, and Mindy has inherited that gift as well. In March of 2012 Mindy hosted my bachelorette party. I remember all of my guests were blown away by not only the taste of the cupcakes, dips, and other sweets, but also the design and creativity of them. Immediately after my party, two of my friends wanted Mindy’s contact information so she could do their parties as well. Mindy has a special gift, but aside from that her work ethic and dedication to her passion will not disappoint you. I look forward to having Mindy help me with many more parties in the future.” -Morgan

 
“The first time I experienced Mindy’s sweet treats was at a friend’s wedding shower. I didn’t leave the dessert table all night. The food was so good, I left my pride aside and snacked the whole time! When my friends decided to throw me a baby shower, the first person who popped into my head for desserts was Mindy. There was no other option. I didn’t want anyone but her to have control of my dessert menu! Mindy was incredibly flexible and gave me a plethora of options so I could ensure I would be happy and my guests would be completely satisfied. On the day of the event, Mindy came down and set up the desserts. It looked like something out of a Southern Living Magazine: Cook Book Edition. Initially, the cupcakes were so perfect that the guests didn’t know they were real, edible food! We had to explain that they were indeed real and go through the flavors so they’d believe us. By the end of the event, we found people eating one or two, and then swiping extras to take home to snack on later. Her dips are my favorite! She’s got several flavor options and you can mix them up with teddy grahams, graham crackers, vanilla wafers—pretty much any snack cookie you wish! I wouldn’t recommend ANYWHERE else in Des Moines to go for your desserts over Mindy’s!!” –Marcia 

 

“Thank you so much for making such wonderful cake pops for a bridal shower I helped plan!  They were absolutely delicious and they were decorated just how I needed them! I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for amazing baked goods for any occasion. Thanks again Mindy!” – Kelli
