Christina does such a great job from the tasting, the creating and the end product. She was very professional and offered so much more than other cake vendors. I chose her mostly because my husband wanted something unique and she offered basically anything he wanted to create. But the nice thing was, I could have my own semi-normal flavored cake and he could have his wild flavors and she did not charge us anything additional. I also really liked the fact that instead of doing sheet cakes she does a "kitchen cake" instead. It is still 4 layers and that way guests do not know they aren't getting the decorated cake. And it is much cheaper than buying a large tiered cake. She delivers for free and I did not have to worry about it on my wedding day. It just appeared and looked beautiful when I made my entrance. About the negative comment about her not contacting them the day of the event, I feel it is better not to. I do not want people calling me on the day of my wedding. She made it worry free and the delivery and set up was flawless and completely arranged between her and my wedding reception site. Anyway I highly recommend Cakes by Christina and would absolutely pass her contact info to others I know are getting married.
Christina made a cake for my shower and it was amazing. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do and Christina was really good about helping me decide on a design that fit my personality and went with the theme of the shower. The cake was so beautiful and exceeded my expectations. What I loved also was the fact that her cake not only looked good but tasted amazing! I would highly recommend her.
Our cake really drew a lot of attention and positive comments. The way that the cake flowed with our topper characters and tasted delicious (not something you can say about most wedding cakes)
Christina made a grooms cake for my wedding. My husband is a big scuba diver and she made the coolest scuba diving cake ever! I gave her some ideas of what I wanted and the final product was awesome! Everyone raved about how cool the design was. The cake was also very delicious! Christina has a strong attention to detail. All the details from the scuba diver to the fish on the cake were done incredibly. I would recommend Cakes by Christina to anyone! She did awesome!
Christina made my cake for the wedding. It was not only beautiful but it was delicious as well. We tried several samples at our cake testing but we ultimately decided on the champagne cake, but they were all delicious! I had a specific style I wanted her to replicate. The design was very intricate but Christina did an awesome job and the final product turned out exactly how I wanted. I heard so many positive comments about how beautiful and tasty our cake was. I would definitely use Christina again and recommend her to others!
Christina is awesome. She was so easy to work with. She did a beautiful job creating the design for my cake using my ideas and photos. The flavor of the cake was excellent. We chose lemon with raspberry filling and andes mint with chocolate cake. My guests have been raving about the cake for weeks. I would highly suggest Cakes by Christina!
When we first met Christina at her home, she situated my husband and I with different cake samples, fillings, icing,etc. Everything we sampled was delicious! Christina also showed us different samples of wedding cakes or cupcake displays which were all uniquely decorated to her clients' taste. We decided on cupcakes with different flavors and designs with a topper cake for my husband and I. On our wedding day, the cupcakes were beautifully designed and decorated with every detail exactly what I had planned. The topper cake was perfectly set with the simple monogram cake topper that I supplied prior to the wedding date. My only regret was that my husband and I did not order more cupcakes due to the fact that every cupcake was eaten soon after we cut our topper cake! Our guests were very happy with the dessert!
I think the only small detail that we were surprised with pertained to the deposit of the cake stand. Understandably, you pay a deposit for the cake stand because it is specially made and if there is any damage, it would have to replaced. Both my husband and I understood prior to ordering our cupcakes that the cake stand deposit was being held on to and not cashed until the stand was returned with damage. Instead, both checks(one for cake stand and the other for cake deposit) were cashed. For future brides, I would make this understood or have it written down in the contract so that each person planning a wedding that is allocating funds and budgeting multiple vendors at a time will already have that planned and budgeted.
Otherwise, if you are planning a wedding and want fantastic results with great quality cake/cupcakes at a reasonable price, Cakes by Christina is a fantastic vendor and I will continue to recommend the business.
Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure working with both of you.
It is true that the cupcake stand requires a refundable deposit to use. If this deposit is paid for by check I do cash the check. This prohibits someone from damaging the stand an...
I thought that my cake from Cakes by Christina was a good deal. I got a cake for ~120 people (4 tiers). I was able to get different flavor/filling combinations for each layer at no additional cost. Bottom layer: white cake with lemon filling. Second layer: pumpkin cake with cream cheese filling. Third layer: chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling. Fourth layer: peanut butter cake with chocolate ganache filling. I haven't tried the top layer yet (saving it), but everything tasted good. My only complaint is that the bottom layer with the lemon filling did not go throughout the cake layer. Only about half of the layer had lemon filling and the rest was the white buttercream that was on the outside of the cake. I was not informed of this ahead of time and it was a little disappointing. Otherwise everything was great. The cake was beautiful and on time. Christina was relatively easy to get a hold of and the process of booking the cake went smoothly.
Thank you for reviewing Cakes by Christina. I am glad that your overall experience was positive.
I would like to clarify about the cake filling comment in the review. The filling on all cakes is throughout the entire tier. But there is a buttercream ...
BEST CAKE OF MY LIFE! Christina knows her cakes, how to make them beautiful, and how to keep cost down. I had a 5 tier cake (which makes the price more)and it was simple but so beautiful!! She was always professional, on time, and communicated very quickly. She worked well with my husband and I as well as all of our other vendors. Her cakes, hands down, are the best I have ever tasted! She literally has hundreds of UNIQUE flavors of cake, filling, and frostings! I could not believe she did all of this herself and was this good! The price is a tad high but completely worth it, and I mean a tad! I have left over cake that is still good and I can't wait for the anniversary cake, which she gives detailed instructions on how to keep it as fresh as possible! She is so sweet to work with and so creative!
Christina did a great job with the cupcakes for our wedding! She was able to advise on size and quantity and was patient and helpful as we selected flavors and colors. I was running around so much on the big day that I only ate half of one cupcake — and it was delicious! Many others agreed. I would definitely recommend Christina. A heads up: her contract is super long and involved but don't get intimidated, she takes what she does very seriously!
Working with Cakes by Christina for our wedding cake was such a pleasure! Christina is very organized, professional, and responsive. We had more cake than guests and had none leftover. Many guests have told us it was the best cake they have ever had and that they went back for seconds and thirds even. The appearance of the cake was amazing and exactly what wanted. Also, the wedding was outside in July and had no problems. Cakes by Christina was very easy to work with and I would highly recommend her services!
Christina is very accommodating and very helpful. Her cakes are beautiful and they taste delicious. Thank you for having so many samples on hand. She is very prompt and made our dream wedding cake a reality.
Thank you so very much for everything! Highly recommended!!
I was ecstatic to find Christina at a local bridal show! The cake was the last big thing we had to decide on, and she made our decision easy! She was so open to making our cake special for us, and seemed genuine about making the cake perfect for our wedding! I wanted color and pop for the cake! I wanted people to walk into the reception and see the cake and say "WOW!". Christina made sure this happened. She sketched three different ideas for us to choose from, and her pricing is the cheapest you will find, period! Her cake is delicious and the fact she lets you choose from so many different flavors and doesnt charge you for every little thing is amazing!! People loved the flavors of the cake and I am so happy we picked Cakes by Christina! :)
My wedding cake was absolutely gorgeous and delicious. I received so many compliments on the look and the taste. I cannot say enough about how great Christina was to work with. Our experience was wonderful and I would recommend her services time and time again!!!
We ordered a 3 tiered cake with 3 different flavors and each one got rave reviews, I had countless people coming up to me throughout the night asking where I got the cake because it was the best they had had at any wedding. The decorations were perfect, it was everything I imagined it to be and more! Thank you so very much for making my cake a highlight of the night :)
Absolutely horrible. There are no business ethics or principles. The customer service provided was virtually non existent. Cupcakes were delivered way before the scheduled 1.5 hours. No contact was made with me that they were delivered or anything! The few times we contacted her before the wedding she was short and uninterested in the issues discussed. Very unprofessional.
As the owner of Cakes by Christina I want all of my customers to be happy with the service provided them.All deliveries are arranged with the venue. Delivery times are based on when the venue will allow vendors on the premise, the type of goods provi...
My cake was fabulous!! I had 5 tiers, each a different flavor, and it didn't cost a penny more than having only one flavor. From the moment I contacted Christina, she was very professional and super friendly. I could tell that I could trust her to make my cake perfectly and she did. I would recommend Cakes by Christina to every bride! The price was unbeatable and the quality and service was exceptional!
nice to work with. delicious cake. no problems about extras (diabetic cake).
Cakes by Christina was amazing! Her cakes were so delicious and she really encourages you to think outside the box. She was extremely easy to communicate with and has some of the best prices in the area. Our guests are still raving about how wonderful our wedding cake was.
Not only was this cake the best I have ever tasted in my life, it was affordable- which made selecting Cakes by Christina no contest when it came to choosing a cake vendor. The other thing we loved about Cakes by Christina was the huge selection of inventive flavors. We chose Cinnamon Roll and Peanut Butter Fudgy and got so many compliments on the flavors and the cake in general.
If you are looking for a cake vendor, please look no further!
