Andrea and her Cakes we more than we ever dreamt they could be for our wedding! She took such thought and consideration to the designs and flavors we asked, and simply brought them to life.
We were in the process of planning a wedding from afar - we live in Chicago, but were getting married in Kansas City. We found Classic Cakes by doing a search of wedding cake providers in the area. We were drawn to her sophisticated designs - no hokey, theme cakes - it was all beautiful and you could tell care was put into each to artfully design and execute each cake.
After a delayed flight and speeding to get there, we met Andrea at her shop I think around 8:30 or 9:00 p.m. We were so thankful for someone who was willing to work with us on our unique travel schedule. We sat down to 10 or 12 different samples and tried them all. I'm not actually a big cake person, so I went into our tasting not really expecting to be wowed. I could not believe how much I loved it all!
Her flavors were interesting, well-thought out, and different from the run-of-the-mill typical wedding cake fare. She was also great at making recommendations to help us make choices to appease our guests. As far as design, she listened to what we liked on her other cakes and created a wedding cake design that was perfectly in-line with the general aesthetic of the event.
I heard rave reviews from many of our guests and I was bummed I didn't get a slice of every flavor! Andrea was great to work with and provided us with an amazing cake at a very reasonable price. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a delicious and beautiful wedding cake!
I had such a great experience working with Classic Cakes. Not only was my wedding cake beautiful, but it tasted amazing. I still get comments from friends and family about how delicious my cake was, and my wedding was 4 months ago! If you want your cake to look like a work of art and taste great, this is the place you want to go to. It was worth every penny!
Our wedding cake was so good, people still talk about it almost 2 years later! Andrea worked with us and was so nice--even when we had to add on extra cupcakes when our guest list kept growing. Very professional. She brought and set up the cake before the wedding. I could not be happier with our experience!
Andrea of Classic Cakes was amazing! She made the daunting task of picking a wedding cake so easy. She has so many delicious flavor options to pick from, and her work is second to none! My wedding cake was stunning, and turned out exactly as I envisioned it. My husband's groom cake was a huge hit! Andrea is welcoming, sweet, an artist, and a true professional!
From day one till wedding day Classic Cakes blew my socks off with service, quality and creativity. She made us the most one of a kind cake that tasted as good as it looked with plenty left for leftovers after serving 85 guests. The hardest part was deciding on flavors with so many great options to choose from. We went with carrot, blueberry lemoncello and grand manier with poppy seeds.
You won't be disappointed by choosing Classic Cakes!
Andrea made my experience with choosing a wedding cake absolutely fantastic! Not only was she friendly, professional, and heart felt, she was straight forward and honest. The cakes tasted better then any other cakes we had tried. I would HIGHLY highly recommend her.
Just amazing cake. Lots of great flavored and Andrea is a dream to work with, not to mention the cake looked stunning! Definitely worth going for a 20 tasting, it goes towards your down payment if you book her. And I bet you will :)
Andrea makes everything from scratch using high quality ingredients and you can tell - the cake was delicious. She offers so many great flavors and gluten free options as well. She was able to re-create the lace pattern from my dress onto part of the cake and it turned out beautifully. She's a bit more expensive than some of the other cake vendors but the price included any decorations added to the cake (except sugar flowers) and the use of the cake stands she has. Thanks Andrea!
Andrea is a true professional with a passion for creating beautiful and flavorful cakes that shows! She is a creative person who also has a numbers side to help you make decisions (like cake flavors). I had a few ideas about my cake, and Andrea took the time to look through pictures and have me describe what I liked or didn't about cakes. She was able to use my likes to help me create a cake that reflected our wedding perfectly. She was also honest about what features would and would not work with our cake which I appreciated! The unique flavors are incredible. Our guests were delighted at the creative and variety of flavors (we had salted caramel, poppy seed grand marnier, strawberry shortcake, black & white, and red velvet). My now husband wanted to go back for another tasting just to eat her cake! Thank you Andrea!
Beautiful and tasty cake! Andrea helped me surprise my groom with a layer of his favorite cake - German chocolate. When we cut into it and he saw that it was his favorite- he said " you really do love me!". One if my favorite moments! Plus that layer was the first to go. Best cake EVER!
Andrea at Classic Cakes makes amazing desserts with natural ingredients. She offers many flavors and focuses on quality. My dessert table with cake, cupcakes, whoopie pies and brownies looked amazing! I am excited to enjoy our top tier on our anniversary.
Andrea created a beatiful and amazing cake for our wedding with 5 tiers of flavors. For all of those flavors, the price was incredibly reasonable and it was so fun for our guests to have so many choices! We absolutely LOVED the tasting... it was so hard to choose! For something a little different than just white cake, Classic Cakes is perfect!
We discovered KC Classic Cakes by attending a bridal fair in July. There were other wedding cake businesses there, and we tried samples from everyone. Andrea's cake sample stood out, and we had only tried one of many cake flavors she offers.
Our experience with Andrea was nothing short of exceptional. She responded to our inquiry promtply, and she kept us informed all the way to our wedding day. She is very detail-oriented, and that helps a bride-to-be's nerves. Her cake flavors are unmatched by any other baker in the area.
You can be sure she will work with you and your groom, go over your ideas, explain her flavors at the cake tasting, and make sure your special day even more memorable with her cake.
After our tasting session, my husband could not stop talking about how wonderful all her cakes were... for days! And our wedding guests quickly polished off the chocolate malt hazelnut tier! Luckily, we had two other distinctly divine cake tiers left.
I recommend using KC Classic Cakes to any bride-to-be!
I am an aspiring wedding planner, and was very picky when it came to my vendors. I met with and tasted cakes from multiple other companies before deciding upon Andrea at Classic Cakes. Andrea's raving reviews on multiple sites speak for themselves. Andrea is creative, over-the-top helpful and fun! We loved meeting with her in person, and she is prompt and helpful via email as well. I wanted a cake that was both modern in unique, but I didn't have a concrete idea to provide her with. Andrea is truly an artist. She sketched out and came up with the exact vision I had in my head. The cake was literally stunning; it was above and beyond what I had hoped for. And usually when you see a beautiful cake, the taste is lacking (I am the queen of tasting wedding cakes for the number of weddings I've been to). This was not the case. We selected six of our favorite flavors for my cakes. SIX FLAVORS! Every single one was INCREDIBLE. (Pumpkin, Carrot, Marzipan (almond), chocolate, white chocolate raspberry and hummingbird) I'm drooling writing this. Our coordinator at our venue said she will now refer her brides to Andrea because she hasn't seen/tasted a cake like ours. We've heard nothing but LOVE from our guests about our cake also. THANK YOU, Andrea, for making our wedding cake so memorable and outstanding!!!
Loved our cake design and flavors! We had an unusual topper that we wanted to be the base of our design and Andrea accommodated it perfectly. She does a ton of flavors that are all amazing - it was really hard to pick which ones to use! So you know some options, we used White Chocolate Raspberry, Salted Caramel, Carrot cake, and Chocolate Hazelnut. We were afraid we would run out because everyone would want to try them all! She also let us borrow a beautiful cake stand that made the final touch!
We were referred to Andrea and Classic Cakes by my friend, (a pastry chef)- and we were so happy with the cake, and her service. Andrea really went above and beyond to get to know our style, desires, and most importantly- tastes! Even for our tasting, she accommodated my request for a coconut cake- We had several flavors for our wedding day, and people raved about the cake even months later ("I loved the one with the poppyseed crunch!" etc...) Her baking skills and ingredients are absolutely top notch- she is worth every penny- and my husband has asked twice if we can get our anniversary cake topper sooner!
We had the pleasure of working with Andrea from Classic Cakes for our daughters wedding in August. What a true artist. She was able to take the lace from her wedding dress and make the pattern in the frosting just like my daughter wanted! She was also able to incorporate all of the flavors that we had at the tasting. The cake was moist and delicious and we had several comments from people that attended the wedding on how good the cake was.
We LOVED our cake from Andrea! It was gorgeous, delicious, and I love that she's a whole foods baker. Everything was perfect. I would suggest that every bride who's getting married meet with Andrea. She's so great!
Andrea's cake is the best tasting cake I've ever had. My husband doesn't even like desert and he loved her cakes. She is very thorough when she asks for your design and works very hard to give you exactly what you asked for. I sent her a sample of the lace from my dress and the patter on the icing matched perfectly. It was everything I ever dreamed and delicious to boot. We got compliments on it all night! I ordered a pretty huge cake, so it was a little pricey, but I say it was worth every penny.
