Alice and the Bean Counter created our wedding cake for our wedding on 5/10/14. We had a wonderful experience that began with a tasting months before. Both sets of parents joined us for a selection of 4 cakes and we had plenty leftover to take home. It was tough to pick the... Read More flavor because everything was delicious. Alice sketched out the design I had in mind and it was beautiful. On the wedding day, the cake was delivered on time, looked gorgeous and was topped with sugar peonies flowers that many people thought were real.

The cake was included in our Wedding package at The Colonial Hotel but because we opted for a specialty flavor there was an extra charge per tier. There were other additional charges for the crystal bands, the cake sparkles and cake topper so it was still an additional cost but... Read More totally worth it. We decided on the red velvet cake and Alice told us that she could use food coloring to make the two top tiers green and the bottom one purple. The green looked amazing but the purple could have been more vibrant. Also, the word "Forever" was supposed to have extra sparkles to make it pop but I didn't see any difference from the rest of the cake. Regardless, the cake was absolutely delicious and the to-go containers that we ordered from them was a huge hit because so many of our guests were too full after dinner for cake but took theirs home or back to their hotel room. The Colonial even packaged up the leftover slices and brought them over to our after party in the bar where many guests enjoyed the cake later in the evening and none of it went to waste. Overall I was very pleased with the service, quality and value from The Bean Counter.

BEST CAKE EVER. I am beyond impressed with the work that Alice and her team at the Bean Counter do on wedding cakes. All of their work is incredibly detailed!

As someone who has an intolerance to gluten, I can say with assurance that this was the absolute best gluten-free cake I’ve ever tasted. Without a doubt, you would not be able to tell it’s sans gluten. Our gluten-free guests raved about it. And the other glutenous cakes, one... Read More chocolate, one vanilla, for our other guests were also a hit. Beyond the taste, the decorations were stunning. My wife and I are both English teachers, and the Bean Counter was able to make a cake that looked like an adventure novel. They also worked with us to help us stay within our budget to feed our entire guest list while still creating the overall look we were going for. We highly recommend them!

You've found your vendor so stop looking! Alice at the Bean Counter is fantastic! From start to finish she was very helpful. I grew up in Shrewsbury so I knew that their baked goods were delicious. When we got married I wanted to do cupcakes instead of cake. I feel like the... Read More cake is only liked by some people (the bride and groom since they pick it) and most of the time people are too busy dancing to eat it so it goes to waste. I wanted to give our guests options of different flavors and I knew the Bean Counters cupcakes were my favorite! I found cupcakes were more budget friendly then a wedding cake. We went to a few local bakeries in RI since we were getting married in Newport but at the end of the day the price was about the same but the taste was so much better but it was worth the travel fee. Alice was wonderful to work with. I wanted the dessert style cupcakes not different flavors that all look the same, just like they sell in the shop. Alice and her team made 210 Dessert style cupcakes for us from Salted Caramel, Cookies & Cream, Strawberry cheesecake, funfetti, and more. People were running up to me on the dance floor to tell me how much they loved the cupcakes! All I can still hear is “Those Cupcakes were AMAZING!” and “Where did you get them!” when I see our any of our guests after the wedding now. I would recommend the Bean Counter if you are looking for an AMAZING cake and delicious!
