Delicious and resonable posted 10/19/2012

I'm a bit of a cake snob since my mom ran her own cake business when I was younger. The only reason we didn't have her make our cake was that she lives in TX and the wedding was in IA. We must have priced out 15 bakeries and gone to tastings at 6 or 7. Anne at Classic Cakes was so easy to work with, had amazing flavors and her buttercream is the closest to my mom's. We also were surprised at her reasonable rates! We were able to get a 4 tier cake for the price of a 2 tier everywhere else we'd looked.

I was so impressed, that I went back to her without my fiance and got a groom's cake for him. Again-- amazed at the price and quality! He had no idea and it was a great surprise. We had the groom's cake at our rehearsal dinner and it was a hit.

We highly recommend any of her flavors, but our favorites (and consequently the ones we had) were: Margarita, Mimosa, Champagne and Raspberry. We WILL be going back to Anne for cakes in the future!

Fantastic Cakes! posted 7/23/2013

We couldn't have been happier with our cake. Not only was it a visual centerpiece to the wedding, it was delicious. It was so good we ordered a lot of extra cake because we knew people would definitely want more than a traditional "wedding cake" sized slice. Our layers were Mimosa, Champagne and Strawberry. Mimosa was my favorite.

beautiful posted 11/6/2012

Aanne did an amazing job on my cake. We had a spice round, a champagne round and a chocolate and white sheet cake. Everyone commented on how wondeerful it was. She was very easy to work with. The cake tasting was amazing. It was the best tasting of all my vendors I sampled.

AWESOME! posted 10/11/2012

I do not think we could have had a better experience! Carolyn was super professional and friendly. The cake was the best wedding cake we had ever had, and all of our guests agreed the entire night! Our cake served 100 people, we had 62 attend, and there was no cake leftover! We wished there was some leftover, but it obviously showed how delicious the cake was!

Disappointed Mother of the Bride posted 6/8/2012 (modified 6/11/2012)

We had a wonderful tasting session, but the actual wedding cake was coarse and dry. I have a feeling it was overbeaten and overbaked. We were very disappointed and ended up discarding the leftover cake from the wedding.....something that never would happen to cake at our house. It was well decorated, but definitely not like the cake we'd tasted at the tasting session. I would DEFINITELY not recommend her cake for a wedding. Several of our guests commented how coarse the cake appeared when cut and tasted so dry.

Just ok posted 5/20/2012 (modified 6/11/2012)

I had 3 different flavors. Cake was dry and crumbled easily during serving as well as trying to eat. The cake was beautiful though.
