We met with Meredith to go over what kind of cake we wanted. We gave her a very general idea of what we were looking for and told her to use her judgement of whatever she thought would look best. I had an idea of what the cake would look like but when I saw it on our wedding... Read More day, I was speechless. It was more than beautiful!! We received multiple compliments on how pretty the cake was and also how good it tasted!!! Meredith and her team are very talented! We are soooo happy we went with Artisan Bake Shop!!

Best dairy free cake I've ever had

Reviewed on 7/16/2013 Molly K

Meredith at Artisan Bake Shop came to my rescue less than one month before the wedding when we had a sudden change of plans and needed a different cake caterer. Originally she said they were just too busy that day, but once I told her my situation and that my soon-to-be husband... Read More is allergic to milk, she agreed to shuffle a few orders and deliveries around, and saved the day. We had a dairy-free red velvet cake with raspberry filling that was absolutely to die for. I wish I had another piece to eat as I'm writing this! Everyone couldn't believe it was dairy-free, it was really that good. Thank you Meredith!

Surpassed Expectations

Nicole and I met Meredith and at the time we were still pretty unsure as to exactly what we wanted out of the cake. Meredith sat with us and drew out numerous sketches in order to help us. Then we emailed back and forth exchanging more sketches and designs. Somehow she... Read More managed not only to create us the perfect cake, but she even surpassed my already high expectations. The cake itself may have been the single most talked about item at our wedding, and the combination of flavors left all of our guests wanting more and asking where the cake came from. I would recommend Meredith to anyone who is looking for great customer service, great cake designs, and great taste. It was truly perfect. Thank you so much!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Meredith and team for such an AMAZING wedding cake and experience with Artisan Bake Shop. From the moment we met Meredith at our appointment up until the day of the wedding- she was absolutely wonderful. Toward the end of our appointment I... Read More asked my husband (then fiancé) if he even wanted to go to the next appointment, because we were so impressed with her and the shop. Just to make sure we covered all bases, we did go to the other appointment and I'm glad we did. It made us realize even more just how awesome Meredith and the Artisan Bake shop was. There was absolutely no comparison between our experience at Artisan and at the other shop. To start, the flavors and quality of the product were perfect and well above expectations. Also, Meredith was super kind, patient, and didn't try to sway us one way or another. And finally, she provided a personal one on one experience that made us feel she really cared about what we wanted. Months later I reached out to Meredith regarding gluten free options for a couple of my guests- she quickly responded letting me know that she would be able to provide complimentary cupcakes for these guests. When I walked into the reception room the day of the wedding I was absolutely floored at how beautiful the cake and cupcakes turned out and how perfectly they matched our theme. Meredith was able to perfectly capture our vision in the 1 hour we met over 9 months ago and bring it to life with out ever even having to reach back out. It was so unbelievably easy to work with her! When it came to dessert time people were raving about the flavor and both guests with gluten allergies immediately came over to me thanking me because they could finally have a cupcake again! Thank you so much for making our experience so special and I'll highly recommend Artisan!

I came across reviews for Artisan when I was searching reviews on wedding websites. Meredith's work and reviews far surpassed others I saw. I'm so glad that they did. I could not have been happier with the masterpiece she created for our big day. I had found a photo of a cake I... Read More loved and she replicated it to the T. When we met with her for our tasting, she was extremely open, helpful, and down to earth. I needed direction with certain things and it was clear that she's a true professional. She truly made the entire process seamless. Each and every flavor she has is out of this world. It was extremely difficult to make our flavor decisions, because each one was just as good as the others. On the big day, the cake came within perfect time. I teared up when I saw it because it was truly perfect. I'm still getting comments about how delicious and beautiful our cake was. We truly could not have been more pleased.

Simple, Elegant, DELICIOUS

Meredith is amazing at what she does and a pleasure to work with. Artisan was the first and last bakery we went to after numerous personal recommendations. All of her cakes are so beautiful, but it was the taste that sold us. We had assorted desserts provided by our caterer... Read More for our wedding so we didn't actually serve the cake, but we wanted something simple, just a single tier that we could use for the cake cutting (and to eat ourselves after). Meredith made us a beautiful buttercream frosted 7" round cake with sugar pearls "strung" round the top and draped down the sides, finished off with a beautiful black lace ribbon around the bottom of the cake. The cake itself was a lemon cake with raspberry and lemon filling. We've been storing it in the fridge and over a week later it still tastes amazing!

Delicious and Beautiful Cakes!

We could not have made a better decision when it came to our wedding cake. Artisan Bake Shop was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. We met Meredith at our cake tasting, which was delicious, and set up wonderfully! Meredith took bits and pieces of pictures of... Read More cakes we liked and created sketches for us to choose from. She then took the sketch we chose and turned it into the perfect wedding cake. Not only did our cake look beautiful but it also tasted delicious! Meredith was so helpful in choosing the perfect combinations of cake and filling options. We absolutely recommend Artisan Bake Shop to every couple planning their wedding!

Amazing Wedding Cake

Reviewed on 11/05/2014 Darah W

When I tell you that EVERY guest at my wedding raved about the cake, I am not exaggerating in the least. My cousin's husband had two pieces in one sitting and I've had about four emails from people asking where they can order a smaller version. Meredith is AMAZING to work with…... Read More she's patient and creative and sweet. I kept her for ages talking about all of my options (I was convinced I didn't want to be a traditional cake bride), and then when I actually DID decide on a cake, she was great about supplying me with new quotes and breakdowns without a peep of annoyance (which I would have found difficult to do in her position). I can't recommend Artisan enough… the spice cake with cream cheese frosting knocked 80 people's socks off.

the cake tasted wonderful but it melted

Reviewed on 10/04/2012 bethany l

First of all I do think Meredith is a real artist. She is capable of producing beautiful and unique cakes. Also both the grooms cake we got floor the rehearsal dinner and the two flavors of wedding cake tasted amazing. Probably the best cake I've ever had. However I was... Read More disappointed for a few reasons. First was the confusion with the grooms cake delivery. Because of this confusion I had to have the cake delivered a day early. I was assured the cake would stay in a well air conditioned room. Unfortunately we could not get the room cool enough and the cake began to run and melt. Finally we refrigerated it and it was great after that. The wedding cake arrived on time and it was a relatively cooler day around 75 with no humidity. When the cake arrived i noticed it was leaning slightly. I thought this was maybe an illusion but pictures confirm it was definitely leaning. The cake was missing some of the colors we discussed in the sugar flower cascade and some colors I expected were not represented. At night the temperature speed down to about 65 degrees. I was shocked to find that at 9 when we walked over to cut the cake it was melting, some of the colors were running and one of the starfish had fallen off. Because it was notthat warm out my only thought is that they do not have refrigerated truck for delivery. I would suggest they invest in one. Because overall the cake still looked good and it tasted amazing I would definitely use them again. I would discuss the delivery method and time in detail and get your cake as late as possible especially if you are having an out door reception. Also make sure you send your deposit in on time because we almost lost our spot by not getting it in soon enough.
