To start, the tasting was a wonderful experience. They had a folder of information ready for us with our names on it, which was a nice, personal touch. They do a component tasting with the cakes and icing/fillings separately. Everything was very organized - and it all tasted AMAZING. Their butter creams are the best I've ever had. I didn't have an exact idea of the design but they walked us through different ideas and had a ton of photos to browse with all different designs. The team at Cute Cakes was very easy to work with through out the planning process. We ended up choosing 4 different flavors. And the cake was beyond what I had imagined. It tasted so fresh, and looked beautiful. I'd highly recommend them!!

We found Cute Cakes from http://TheKnot.com for our wedding in July 2013! We chose them because they had a good selection of flavors including basic ones, which we really enjoy. We contacted them via email and it was really easy to book a tasting. We were impressed that they had a folder with our names and tasting sheets ready to go, it made it really easy to keep track of the samples! We were given small amounts of every cake and frosting that they had. We had a lot of fun sampling and the cakes were very tasty! Although it is a simple choice, we just fell in love with the vanilla cake with raspberry buttercream filling and vanilla buttercream on the outside. Our guests raved about the cake!! We also added a different flavor in the 2nd tier to mix things up. We had marble cake with chocolate buttercream filling! Both flavors were not left on the table for very long!!
Jill did a great job going through everything with us and setting up the cake. She was very nice and did a great job on our cake, penguin cake topper, and adding the flowers! My only comment to improve the process is to make sure all of the questions are asked upfront about the cake board color, who is placing flowers and the charge, and ensure it is clear what they are making. We were not asked these questions when we placed our order, but when I called to add a tier Jill asked me at that time and I am sure glad that she did!!! Awesome cakes and we will be back!!! We can't wait to have the top tier on our anniversary!!

My wedding cake was made by Cute Cakes and I was beyond thrilled to see it on my wedding day. My cake was so beautiful and turned out so much better than I imagined it in my head! They went above & beyond for sure. Everything was perfect even during the very first tasting, my fiance & I loved so many flavors that we literally had 4 different flavors in our wedding cake. They let us do each tier a different flavor which was great for our guests since everyone has different favorites. All the flavors were delicious. Jill & the whole staff are always so wonderful and made my time as a bride very easy. They showed up on my wedding day & made my cake dream come true. Thank you forever Cute Cakes :)

All of the ladies we talked with a Cute Cakes were great to work with. The cake flavor a themselves were very good (we had a lot of compliments). The design on the cake was pretty close to the picture we gave them and overall we were very pleased. Thank You!

Cute Cakes was one of the best vendors I worked with. They made me feel special and comfortable from the very beginning at my private cake tasting to the end on my wedding day. I felt confident that my cake would be exactly as I hoped, and it actually exceeded my expectations. They also made a great gluten free cake that I needed for one of my gluten-intolerant bridesmaids. They set up the cake and I didn't have to worry about a thing other than if my husband was going to smash it in my face or not! It was delicious and beautiful and Cute Cakes was so caring while still being professional!

This vendor is great! I don't have that much to say because they really were great! The cake was gorgeous, it tasted amazing, and it was a really great price. The cake tasting was also a blast (make sure you're not hungry when you go). Simply said, I would highly recommend this vendor : )

Cute Cakes did an excellent job with my wedding cake. We had an awesome cake tasting where we literally tasted 50 different combinations. They were very accomodating to us, provided us with the cake samples and left us to enjoying ourselves! When selecting the design of my cake, I basically brought in different pictures of cakes I loved and with their help (in reviewing costs etc) we were able to select one that they re-created for us to perfection! We selected the lemon cake with rasberry filling for our June wedding. Because we were on a budget, they even have the option to us faux cake pieces so you have the look of a larger cake, but really are only paying for the design of the faux cake and the real cake you actually purchase. They were easy to work with and very professional. I would highly suggest calling them to work with you! I submitted my request directly to their (and others) websites and Jill - the owner - was the first and only cake shop owner to even respond to my information request! Thank you Cute Cakes!

When I found this bakery through a general area search I was very excited by the selection of flavors offered. My fiancé and I arranged to have a tasting, which was $25 but that went toward the cost of the cake when we ordered. During our tasting we were served a large selection (of our choice) of the menu offerings; I requested to have the cake, fillings and icings all separate so we could mix and match, but having the cake varieties filled and iced was also an option. I was pleasantly surprised that every single cake we tasted was not only delicious, but melt in your mouth moist! And the buttercream and fondant, made in house, is real (not made with “fake” ingredients) and exceptionally delicious! The cakes are made fresh for each event, and not frozen before icing or for storage like at some bakeries (this is important for quality).
They have a large collection of prior works to look through if you need some inspiration, and Kristina was very helpful and accommodating when we described the design we wanted. The cake turned out beautifully, even after we had some last minute sizing and flavor changes, and everything was delivered on time and as ordered. The cake was not only beautiful but delicious as well!

We worked with Kristina, and she was absolutely wonderful!!! She was very patient with my husband and I, answered all of our questions and worked with our budget!
Our cake was absolutely beautiful and perfect! Even more importantly, it tasted INCREDIBLE! It was so delicious!! Cute Cakes is about 2 hours from where we live, but my husband and I plan to visit Cute Cakes again to get another cake from them to celebrate our first year anniversary! We love Cute Cakes!! Definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding cake vendor! They can do anything, the cakes always look gorgeous and taste amazing!!
Thank you Cute Cakes!!

Our wedding cake wasn't what we expected, but it was just as fantastic. The flavor combination we picked out was delicious and pleased everyone (Apple, Beanutl Butter, and Raspberry Jelly)! The marshmellow fondent was delicious and a fantastic alternative to frosting, since myself and most of our guests aren't particularly fond of frosting, or fondent, really. The decoration was creative, unique, and exactly what we asked for. Everyone loved the gingerbread decorations and was in awe!

Cute cakes have the most amazing tasting cake and are simply beautiful! We had a little issue with customer service with a sales person and the owner handled well, she offered a cake tasting , which was fun and delicious! I will keep going here for special occasion cakes :-) thank you cute cakes, the guests loved our cake!

This place has the best cakes! And at great prices too! I got a 4 tier cake, all of which had different flavors, and it was wonderful! They were very detailed in their description of the cake after I told them what I wanted, which was a load off my mind, and they used the topper that I already had to top it off. They are wonderful. I am going to go back and get some cupcakes or individual cakes of more flavors and some more of the ones I had at the wedding because I didn't get to have hardly any when I was there. Yummy!

I had a very simple cake design for the top of my cupcake tower from Heavenly Cupcake, so Jill and I worked over email to set everything up for my wedding. She was reliable, our cake looked good and it was delicious - marble pound cake with whipped cream filling and buttercream frosting, mmm....

The best cake place ever. The team were a joy to work with. They listen to what I wanted and I had the best bling cake ever. I love them it was a joy working with them and I know they will be very successful. I wish the company nothing but the best and will always recommend her to my friends, aquaintances and family.

We used Cute Cakes for our 10/29/11 wedding and it was wonderful! We had 4 different flavors, all of which were so delicious. Jill and her team were excellent; they took care of everything and made the cake look and taste awesome. We had a green cake, which made my dad so nervous to hear about (he wanted a traditional “white” cake), but when he saw it at the wedding, even he said he was glad we didn’t get white. Their fondant is delicious, which helps make their cakes taste even better, and their tasting was incredible! I don’t understand why some bakeries expect you to make a huge, perishable purchase like a wedding cake without having as “accurate” a tasting as possible, but Cute Cakes made sure we could try all combinations of cake/icing/fondant exactly as they would be in the finished product. Overall, a big recommendation for Cute Cakes!

WOW! Amazing cake!! We had fresh flowers arranged, cascading down the tiers, white fondant with black ribbon. It was so beautifully simple and elegant. And not to mention DELICOUS! First tier was chocolate cake with raspberry jam, second tier was a simple white cake with lemon cream and oh my was it good. My step-mother said it was the best lemon cake she'd ever had. Even the fondant which is mostly for looks tasted great! We are so happy we used Cute Cakes for our wedding. Fantastic!

We used cute cakes on a referral from a friend and went with cupcake/cake combination. Everyone was extremely friendly and willing to work with you to get you idea exact! They set everything up with the delivery (which was a huge plus) they even added the flowers for us! The cake/frosting is AMAZING! Everyone at the wedding loved them and wanted to try all the different flavors.

We meet with Jill she was awsome. I brought her a pic and it was 10X as beautiful my favorite pics are of my cake. I changed my mind last min and wanted to suprise my man with a grooms cake. I told her to make me a red sox cake she emailed me a pic right away. When the cake showed up on time it look great. The cakes taste amazing. I highly suggest the pound cake. Love this Bakery!!
