I could not have been happier with the cake Alissa made for my wedding. She was great and helpful to work with during the design process. I showed her a picture for inspiration, and she created a cake exactly how I wanted. The best part was how...
delicious the cake tasted. We specifically asked for a slightly bigger cake than we needed just to have some leftovers. My fiancé and I loved having the cake for a few nights after the wedding. I highly recommend hiring Alissa for your cake needs.

We had the pleasure of having our wedding cake made by Alissa. I was planning a very last-minute, mini-wedding in Saratoga Springs from Long Island. Our wedding was 1/2/21, the day after New Years. My mom mostly worked with Alissa, but I wanted...
to write this review to say how amazing she is, how amazing her cake was, and how above and beyond she went for us. Alissa not only made us a perfect/delicious cake (one tier was gingerbread and one tier was vanilla bourbon), she went out of her way to deliver the cake to the restaurant for us. She was supposed to be out of town, and made it a point to help us in this way. Not only will I never forget how yummy that cake was, I will never forget the pure kindness Alissa showed my husband and I during such a stressful time. Please consider giving Alissa a call for all of your baking needs. And thank you, Alissa!

Finding Alissa, was like finding a gem! From the moment we walked into her storefront and sat down for our tasting we knew that Alissa was perfect for us!
The tasting was magical, as we got to choose flavors a head of time, but then were able...
to try as many different combinations of those flavors as we wanted to! Choosing which combinations to go with was probably the hardest part, because there were no bad choices!
Being from out of state, Alissa was great to work with via email and answered all of our questions we had forgotten to ask while we were in the shop! When we needed to move our wedding date because of the pandemic she didn’t even bat an eye when helping us move to our new date.
Since we had to move our date because of the pandemic we had been dreaming of our cake for over a year, and the first bite was no disappointment, in fact better than we even remembered! Our guests have commented on how great the cake was, and even after being frozen while we were away on our honeymoon it was delicious when we had a piece the other night and we are looking forward to enjoying our anniversary cake next year together!

Alissa was an absolute pleasure to work with. I was a pest and asked her a million questions, but she was always patient with me and gave me honest feedback. And the most important thing of course, was the cake: it was INCREDIBLE. Not only was ...
it beautiful and everything I had envisioned and more, but it actually tasted delicious. I've been to countless weddings and have literally never liked the cake, so it's awesome to be able to say that I genuinely loved my own wedding cake. Plus she gave us a mini cake in a totally different flavor combination to cut on our one-year anniversary. I give this vendor 5 gold stars. Thank you, Alissa!

Alissa is an OUTSTANDING baker! I and my whole family are self-professed "foodies," so finding a cake that actually tasted good for our wedding day was going to be - I thought - quite a task. I spoke to some very well-known places in the area k...
nown for wedding cakes, and they either were inconsistent with their communication or their prices were INSANE. We were looking for some kind of gluten free option, and after speaking with Alissa on the phone, and navigating her website, we found we had so many options it was unbelievable. We met her at a local coffee shop to do our cake-tasting (with cupcakes!), and couldn't believe what we were eating... I'm one to do lots of research, and I don't like to "pull the trigger" so to speak on something before I've done adequate "vetting" LOL, but after that taste, there was no way we could go with anyone else. We had 30 people, three layers: bottom chocolate, middle yellow, top GF chocolate, with two layers of filling: cannoli and mocha, with buttercream frosting. I'm salivating just remembering how delicious, how moist and chocolatey it was... And she gave us a completely separate layer to freeze for our one-year anniversary. $200. Can't beat it. I'll say it again - OUTSTANDING! Highly recommended!!

Alissa did such an amazing job with the cupcakes for our wedding, it's hard to put into words. The display that she set up with our vendor turned out absolutely amazing. All of the different types of cupcakes and our cutting cake looked beaut...
iful, especially given the fact that we had such a large wedding! The best part of all, however, was how incredible they tasted. We have never seen a wedding where all of the cupcakes and cake were eaten so fast by the guests (and we bought more than 1 per person too!). There were only a handful left by the end of the night! The taste and setup exceeded our every expectation. This is largely due to how receptive and responsive Alissa was to our emails and communications; whenever we had a question or looked for some advice, she was there to help us and seemed excited to do it. We will certainly be recommending her to all of our family and friends, and we can't wait to order more cakes/cupcakes with Alissa for our own future celebrations!

Our experience with Cake by Alissa was great from our first email to the last delicious bite. We do not live locally, so we could not set up a tasting or meet in person so based on other reviews, we made the best decision ever to go with Alissa...
Woods for our wedding!!!! The cake was absolutely gorgeous, with fresh flowers, it made for the perfect Fall Wedding Cake of my dreams! We decided to go with the Guinness chocolate cake with Baileys Irish cream butter cream. The top layer was Gluten Free, and trust me it was the best gluten free cake I have ever had. My husband tried it and couldn't even tell the difference. She also made us chocolate chip and blueberry muffins as a evening snack, and wow it was delicious! Everyone was asking who the baker was, it was a huge hit. Thank you so much Alissa!!!!

Alissa was totally awesome. My husband and I don't like fondant and Alissa has the best butter cream frosting that was so tasty that I had way too much cake during out tasting it was just so good! She was very accommodating to taste, style, and...
budget! She made us a three tier Strawberry shortcake (which was too die for!), in addition she also made cupcakes: "His" = Red Velvet, "Hers" = Mint Chocolate Chip, and "Ours" = Strawberry Shortcake. Our wedding guests LOVED the cake and the cupcakes by the end of the night they were all gone! Alissa has a great little shop and when you go to your tasting make sure to take some home for later, because you'll want to share what you tasted with your family and just will want to have some extra for later anyway! Alissa was very flexible to work with, she even helped me create a surprise groom cake for my husband with all of his favorite brewery logos on it. It was a wonderful surprise at our rehearsal dinner and he loved it!! If you're looking for delicious taste and a beautiful cake and you're on a budget, hire Alissa, she will take care of you and give you the best cake/cupcakes for your wedding day!

buttercream and the white cake with lemon filling and meringue frosting. I'm not a big cake person, but these cakes were FABULOUS. They were beautiful, delicious, and very reasonably priced. (We purchased a small decorative cake for the head table, and sheet cakes for 200 guests for $185!) We also ordered a dozen gluten-free cupcakes, which surprised and delighted our guests with gluten allergies who had already resigned themselves to forgoing cake....we loved having that option!
I also should mention that we didn't have a specific vision for our decorative cake...we let Alissa be creative and come up with a design based on some leftover decorative materials we gave her, and it turned out more beautiful than we could have imagined!
We highly recommend Cakes by Alissa!
