(WMC) - She designed the "hunted fox" cake for the wedding that royals Prince William and Harry attended in Memphis.

She crafted a University of Georgia bulldog cake so real, it made you want to pet "UGA."

This week, Laura Jackson whipped up a perfect health inspection.

She owns The Flour Garden, 4730 Poplar Ave. It earned an 100, our High Score of the Week, on its Aug. 15 health inspection.

"If you're going to be doing anything with food, especially with a wedding cake where you're going to be serving hundreds of people, you want to make sure everything is done to the highest standards, so it was clear that she was the one to make our cake," said satisfied customer Lindsey Rea. The Georgia Bulldog cake was her husband's groom cake. Jackson designed Rea's bridal cake, too.

Jackson opened The Flour Garden, by appointment only, five years ago. But she has more than a decade's experience designing custom cakes, ever since she shaped a Scooby Doo confection for her 3-year-old daughter, now 16.

"They know that they are going to get the quality that they pay for," Jackson said of her customers.

Her attention to detail is the proof that Jackson cares about her clients' satisfaction.

"Not only in cake, but the cleanliness of the establishment," she said. "They can take pride in knowing that across the board, they will be getting what they are asking for."
