We had Cakes By Ron make our wedding cake for our wedding here in Sarasota. I was the informal bride, so I just popped in and bought some cupcakes, and they were DELICIOUS (And I'm VERY picky about cake too!)
After looking at the flavor option...
s and a few emails later, I had a call to place the order and that was it. SO easy! My florist was familiar with them, and was just able to drop off the flowers 2 days in advance, and I didn't have to do a thing. The cake arrived in plenty of time on the wedding day and was delicious and fresh. (I HIGHLY recommend the strawberry cake!)
The guests absolutely LOVED the cake and it turned out exactly how we wanted. Wedding cakes can be bleh, but this was a cake I would buy over and over (in smaller quantities of course).

We had the pleasure of choosing Cakes by Ron to provide our wedding cake and cupcakes, and we couldn't have been happier with the delectable treats they created. Cakes by Ron not only exceeded our expectations in terms of taste but also wowed u...
s with their attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship.
Let's start with the wedding cake. It was a true masterpiece. From the moment we saw it, we were captivated by the stunning design and flawless execution. Cakes by Ron's expertise in cake artistry was evident in every aspect of the cake. The icing was smooth and expertly applied, and the intricate decorations were immaculate. It was clear that they paid close attention to our preferences and brought our vision to life with precision and creativity.
But it wasn't just the cake's appearance that impressed us—the taste was equally divine. The layers of moist cake were perfectly baked and had a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The flavors were rich and well-balanced, and the filling added a delightful burst of sweetness. Cakes by Ron's commitment to using high-quality ingredients was evident in every bite. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the deliciousness of the wedding cake.
In addition to the wedding cake, we opted for cupcakes to offer our guests a variety of flavors. Cakes by Ron delivered once again. The cupcakes were moist, flavorful, and beautifully decorated. Each cupcake was a miniature work of art, adorned with intricate designs and topped with a swirl of delectable frosting. The range of flavors offered by Cakes by Ron was impressive, allowing our guests to indulge in their personal favorites. From classic flavors to more unique combinations, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
The service provided by Cakes by Ron was exceptional from start to finish. They were professional, responsive, and attentive to our needs. The team at Cakes by Ron worked closely with us to understand our preferences and guide us in making the right choices for our wedding cake and cupcakes. Their expertise and knowledge were invaluable, and they were able to accommodate any special requests we had. The delivery and setup of the cake and cupcakes were seamless, allowing us to focus on enjoying our special day.
Cakes by Ron truly made our wedding day extra special with their exquisite wedding cake and delightful cupcakes. Their passion for their craft, attention to detail, and commitment to delivering exceptional taste and design were evident in every aspect of their work. We highly recommend Cakes by Ron to anyone in need of a wedding cake or cupcakes for their special occasion. Thank you, Cakes by Ron, for creating edible works of art that not only delighted our taste buds but also added an extra touch of elegance to our wedding celebration.

Based off of reviews and reputation, we had thought that we’d have nothing but a good experience with Cakes by Ron; however, this unfortunately was not the case. Our tasting went well and we were excited about everything we had decided on. We o...
rdered a 3 layer ivory and white wedding cake as well as 175 cupcakes. On the day of our wedding, we were surprised with how everything turned out. The cake was the wrong color and was tipping over at the top. Our wedding party jokingly took to calling it the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which was hilarious, but not at all what we had hoped for. We ended up having to cut it at the beginning of the evening so it wouldn’t fall over. When we cut into it, the groom and I noticed that the texture of the bottom layer was a bit odd, but as it tasted good (I’ll at least give them that!), we didn’t think too much about it. The venue staff later let us know that the bottom layer of the cake was essentially unable to be served as the slices were crumbling and falling apart. The largest part of this not cheap cake was unusable. As for the cupcakes, I didn’t try them, but my Maid of Honor who was at our tasting said they were fine, but smaller and didn’t taste as good as at the tasting. We were also surprised that the frosting on the strawberry ones was neon pink instead of the more natural, pale frosting at the tasting. There was no indication that what we received would be different from what we ordered. Lastly, if my planner had not let me know that I was responsible for providing my own serving trays, I wouldn’t have known. Admittedly, this is a small point, but indicative of the level of communication from Ron’s. Any of these things individually would not have bothered us, but put together, we’re pretty unhappy. All in all, I can’t recommend them. The level of quality for the price was horrible. We know based on their instagram and other reviews that they are more than capable of doing what was ordered and we’ll never know why they dropped the ball so badly for us.

So glad we did because every bite was like a new dessert offering to our guest. We haven't gotten our pictures back yet but will share when we do- the design of our flowers were out of this world and the color's were exactly what we wanted. From the moment you step foot in their Sarasota store you willl see their "art work" but when it's your own your heart skips a beat. I can't wait to order future cakes from them to celebrate memorable occasions!

I called the owner and he had an excuse for everything!! He did not even apologize for the wrong filling, no apologies, did I say no apologies?!! I read all the great reviews before deciding on Cakes by Ron, therefore really shocked! Towards the end of the conversation I was very upset so the conversation did not end well. Be aware and very cautious, this bakery can not bake a naked cake, and although the cake itself was moist and delicious, it was outweighed by the layers and layers of wrong filling. My wedding planner will not use them in the future.
