I couldn't have imagined a more perfect cake for our day! We met with the owners for taste testing and they are the sweetest people. I showed Linda 3-4 pictures of an idea of what I wanted and she went ABOVE and BEYOND my expectations. It was pure perfection!! Now on to the taste...our cake was ordered to serve 150 people. We ended up having about 90 show up. There was very very little cake left. Everyone I talked to had at least 2 pieces with one person having 5!!! I had numerous people tell me it was the best cake they had ever had- and I have to agree. My husband and I both aren't huge fans of cake, but LOVED this!!! Our flavors included: French Vanilla with Raspberry and Creme Cheese filling, Pink Champagne with Champagne and Buttermilk filling, and Red Velvet with Creme Cheese filling. It was outstanding!! Do yourselves a favor and choose Kingsley Cakes for any of your cake needs- Great price and great product and service! THANK YOU!!!
The cake for my daughters wedding was perfect. She did not even want to cut into it! My daughter was very specific on what she wanted and they did a beautiful job. It also tasted wonderful. Would highly recommend.
Kingsley Cakes makes our cakes for every special occasion. Linda and Chrissy do an excellent job of making sure you get exactly what you want and helping you see their vision. We knew the colors and style we wanted, but weren't sure what patterns to make each layer, the ladies took the time to tell us all of our options, even drew pictures of how it would look. Since we live out of state, my husband could not be there with me to taste test, Linda sent home samples with me, so we both felt involved! I couldn't ask for a better experience! Kingsley Cakes cares about making your cake perfect and unique for your day, they are truly one of a kind!
Linda made our wedding cake experience comfortable and easy! She was wonderful from the first time we met her. We tasted a variety of flavors and she still had a plethora of other flavors to choose from—the possibilities seemed endless. This was one piece of our wedding that we had decided to keep a tight budget on, and we were ready to have a simple plain cake. Linda was very understanding of this, and she did not push us to spend more. We had a 2 tier square cake (top was our anniversary cake and bottom tier was for the bridal party), and we had sheet cakes to serve to our guests. I couldn’t believe how beautifully frosted the sheet cakes even were—I was not expecting them to be like that! Our guests had 2 flavors of cake to choose from, and our guests raved for days about how good our cake tasted. I am not a huge cake person, but Linda’s cake was definitely delicious—very moist and not too sweet. Linda delivers the cake and sets it up for you the day of your wedding so you have no worries. The only complaint I would have would be the look and set up of the cake. I sent Linda a cake topper and ribbon to place around the bottom of each layer of the cake. She contacted my florist to get a few flowers to place on the cake as well. I had asked for piping along the sides of my cake, and a monogram “L” in the middle of the top layer. When I saw the cake, Linda had added the turquoise ribbon and flowers to the cake, but the piping and “L” were not on the cake. The table that the cake was displayed on was a round table and because my cake was only a 2-tier cake, it looked extremely small on the table. It would have looked better if the sheet cakes were displayed behind the cake to take up some more space on the table. I had some guests look at the cake and think, “There is no way this cake is going to serve all these people. I wonder if I’ll even get a piece.” I was a little disappointed at this because Linda knew what I wanted, and she helped me choose the added elements to our cake. Looks are not everything though, and the taste of the cake helped me relax about the appearance of the cake. I am definitely excited to taste the cake in another year, when we eat our anniversary cake (which Linda includes free of charge as a gift to you!). I would recommend Linda and her company to other brides (the cake was the best I have ever tasted), but make sure you are persistent in telling her exactly what you want.
I was extremely happy with our cake. We could not make up our mind with what we wanted, so we asked if Linda would choose for us if we gave her three options. She went with it and made a beautiful cake, that was also very delicious! All of our guests said it was the best cake and they are still talking about it! She will also do each layer a different flavor if you would like. She is extremely reasonably priced and does great work. So happy we went with Kingsley Cakes!
Kingsley cakes did an amazing job. They made sure to help you figure out exactly what you wanted, and made sure to make your dream cake. The cake was absolutely delicious. I had so many guests say it was the best wedding cake they had ever had.
Linda was wonderful from the first time we met her. She came HIGHLY recommended by so many people we talked to. Her cakes are simply AMAZING and her prices were so incredibly reasonable. I would recommend anyone planning a wedding, party, or just wants a delicious cake to enjoy to go with Kingsley Cakes! Thank you for making our day amazing and giving us a perfect cake! Linda-you were wonderful, sweet, personable, and a joy to work with! Thank you for everything!
My husband and my wedding cake was simply beautiful and most certainly the most deliciously moist wedding cake I have ever had. (You bet I had a slice of each flavor to go) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Linda and Chrissy made our wedding cake experience comfortable and easy! We chose a design and they helped us figure out details (frosting patterns, ribbons, flavors, etc). The day of the wedding, the cake was set up first thing, so fast we didn't even notice they had come! Our guests raved about how beautiful the cake was and the variety of flavors. We couldn't be happier with Kingsley Cakes, we have always used them and will continue to use them in the future. Thanks Kingsley Cakes for taking part in making our day perfect!
My husband and I met with Linda, who is fabulous to work with knowing we both do not like cake. After our tasting with Linda we would definitely eat her cake again! She definitely made our dream cake that not only we enjoyed but our guest could not stop talking about ! Thank you again Kingsley cakes for making our wedding day great !
This was one piece of our wedding we had decided to keep a tight budget on, and were ready to have a simple plain cake. After several communications with Kingsley Cakes we realized we had an incredible number of cake flavors and designs with no additional costs. We had a 4 tiered cake each a separate flavor.
Everyone at the wedding really enjoyed your cake. The taste was excellent,looks and quality were impressive. Several people wanted to know who made the cake and that they would give Kingsley Cakes a try in the future. We have used Kingsley Cakes in the past and will continue to use them. YUMM!
I went to Kingsley Cakes for my wedding cake, and it was one of the best decisions I made for the wedding! Linda is so kind, and helps with anything you may need and at a very reasonable price. She did my wedding and grooms cakes. The grooms cake was shaped like a tire and it looked exactly like what we had wanted. Everyone was commenting on how amazing it tasted and looked. I would recommend Kingsley Cakes to anyone whether it be for a wedding, birthday, or any special occasion.
Wow! This is the only accolade that seems to come close to the quality and service we received from Kingsley Cakes. We're a military family living in Washington DC, the bride in Wyoming and the wedding in Michigan. Planning and logistics were not easy, but from first contact Kingsley Cakes made sure we knew there was one less thing on our "to do" list to worry about. The long distance planning and flexibility right up to the actual event was outstanding and I haven't even started to tell you about how amazing the cup cakes were! If you're thinking about using anyone other than Kingsley Cakes, do yourself a favor ... just say "yes" to Kingsley Cakes.
On July 27,13 my husband and I were married up north at Castle Farms. From the moment my husband met Linda from Kingsley cake, we knew our guest would not be disappointed with our cake selection. Our guest raved days beyond our wedding about how "good" our cake tasted. My husbands aunt from New York, who also happens to run a bakery, told us how much she enjoyed our cake and that it was truly delightful. Everything about our experience with Kingsley Cake was truly amazing. Our cake was very classy, elegant, and most of all, one the BEST cake we had in awhile. Kingsley Cake captured our vision, and delivered a world winning cake. We are forever thankful to the staff at Kingsley Cake for taking the time to make sure every detail, flavor, and vision was precise. We also appreciate the support from the staff, especially those times when I became the "anxious bride". Kingsley Cakes staff made us feel welcomed and supported from the start being that we live 4 hours away. I highly recommend Kingsley Cakes to anyone looking to leave an everlasting impression on their guest.
We were an out-of-town couple unfamiliar with local bakeries, and our reception planner referred us to Kingsley Cakes. How fortunate! Our cake was gorgeous and tasted amazing; the service was flawless. The owner, Linda, made us feel like she cared personally about us and providing our perfect cake. She presented an unexpectedly wide flavor variety at our tasting, and patiently guided us through an array of creative design ideas, paying close attention to our wants. We ended up with a custom, three-flavor, four tier confection we loved, and our guests gave rave reviews. Kingsley's cakes and fillings have an intense, true flavor we've never tasted elsewhere, and the buttercream icing isn't too sweet. We felt we received terrific value for price. This bakery operates out of a licensed kitchen at Linda's home, so pricing doesn't include high-dollar overhead. In addidion, Linda gave us detailed instructions on how to save our anniversary tier to avoid having a disappointing, freezer-burned lump later. We couldn't wait a year to share our saved tier, but it was wonderful months after we'd followed Linda's wrapping and thawing instructions. Kingsley Cakes isn't local for us or we'd never get a special occasion cake elsewhere. Our "big city" bakeries don't compare. Ten stars for the lemon cake filled with lemon curd and raspberry. We doubt it is equalled by the most elite bakery anywhere!
Thank you for sharing your big day with us. We truly enjoyed meeting with you and creating the cake that you envisioned for your wedding. I liked the suggestions you gave me for growing our business! If you are ever in the area and want cake, let me...
We used Kingsley Cakes for cupcakes for our July wedding - they were delicious! We were able to select multiple flavors and Linda is so easy to work with to make them look exactly how you want. They looked stunning! I have received a number of comments on how good they were, and I can't wait to eat our cake on our 1 year anniversary! I would definitely recommend Kinglsey for your wedding cake or cupcakes!
Thank you for sharing your big day with us. We enjoyed working with you.
Moist...wide variety of flavors. Flavorful. Great looking cake...linda is great to work with. The frosting is awesome.
We are glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. We get so much pleasure in sharing in your most important day and knowing we helped to make it special
Linda at Kinglsey Cakes is just fantastic. When we tried her cakes for the first time, we felt they were the best in the Northern Michigan/Charlevoix area. Not only were the cakes delicious, but Linda was willing to go above and beyond to create a custom flavor for our wedding. We love this company called Jeni's Ice Cream out of Columbus Ohio, specifically a flavor called Goat Cheese and Cherry (it may sound odd - but it is one of our favorites!) We sent Linda several pints of the ice cream, and she created a cake flavor that tasted just like it. It was delicious! We received so many compliments on our cake. Working with Linda as a remote bride was very easy to do. She was always very timely in communicating. We found her cakes to be not only the best tasting, but very reasonably priced as well. If you are in doubt, go for the cake stand - it made our cake look so elegant, and we absolutely loved it. Thank you Linda for providing such excellent service! We highly recommend Kingsley Cakes.
Sometimes we get a chance to work with a couple that really lets us be creative, so we want to thank you for helping us expand our flavor list. ps We loved the ice cream!!!!:)
Amazing cake! The setup of our cake table was beautiful and the flavors we chose turned out perfect with Linda's amazing abilities!! Love them!
Thanks for sharing your day with us! It was our pleasure to work with you!
