"We arranged with Delaney from Savannahs Hall of Cakes to make our daughter's wedding cake, all via email. It is scary making a decision like this without tasting or meeting the person but Delaney was awesome. The cake was perfect and they were easy to work with. We highly recommend them!" Vicki

He has spent many years teaching Delaney the values, therefore, she has learned the practice which create a successful business.
With a background in art, Delaney loves to create unique desserts that are just as beautiful as they are delicious. Delaney began her love of art when she was just a child. Once she completed high school, Delaney decided to go to Savannah College of Art and Design. Sometime after Delaney's father asked her to work for him and to help him run his restaurant. Delaney took this job and worked for him for two years. Delaney learned valuable lessons in business management which only can be understood when a person is actually running a business. Soon after that, Delaney met Minette Rushing when her mother, Dianna, was taking classes from her at her bakery, although Delaney loved to bake, she had never decorated a cake before. Quickly, Delaney knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life, so she started to work for Minette. Delaney learned so many different techniques. Although her stay there was short, it was exactly what Delaney needed to kickstart her career. It has been over seven years since Delaney left CustomCakes, and she owes everything to Minette. She is not only an amazing cake designer, she is a spectacular mentor. In a nutshell, Delaney truly enjoy the entire process of creating rare works of delicious art.

They continually take classes to stay up to date with the latest techniques all over the country. They have taken classes from the French Pastry School of Chicago and have over thirty class credits under their belt. Delaney takes control in the design aspect of your cake. Delaney and the team do the baking and decorating. Dianna has a gift for making gorgeous pressed sugar flowers. Delaney and Dianna's favorite part of designing and baking cakes is to hear from the client that they not only loved how the cake looked, but thought it was the best tasting cake they had ever eaten.
