One word... unreal. Our cake looked like something straight from a magazine and tasted even better! It was absolutely gorgeous and by far the most complimented thing at our reception. Tammy was so incredibly kind and went the extra mile for any questions or requests we had. She... Read More had BY FAR the best tasting cake out of any bakeries we tried (and believe me, we tried a few.) Not to mention, she was by far the most reasonably priced baker as well. You could tell she just absolutely loves her job and is such a people person. I could not recommend Cakes by Tammy enough.

Tammy was great to work with from the very beginning. She had no problem meeting us at a hotel in our hometown and she brought two 6-inch cakes for us to take home and try! The two cakes were delicious and the generous sample allowed us to share it with the groom's family. After... Read More a couple weeks of not being able to decide on which flavors to get, Tammy offered to make us THREE more sample cakes for a small price. After we finally made our decision, I sent Tammy a couple of pictures of cakes that I saw from Pinterest. The cakes that I sent her were very different from the beautiful sample cakes she showed us, but I had total faith in Tammy and knew that her creativity and talent would shine through..and boy was I right! When I saw the cake for the first time on our wedding day, I was completely blown away! I requested an "ombré"-style cake that went from teal at the top to purple at the bottom...it was more beautiful than I even imagined and looked INCREDIBLE with the acrylic cake topper I picked out. I felt bad cutting it! I could not recommend Tammy enough for any upcoming brides and grooms...she was so easy to work with and our cake was beautiful and delicious. I already can't wait to eat our anniversary cake!

I can not even begin to tell you how AMAZING Tammy from Cakes by Tammy is to work with. I looked at many different cake places and had high expectations for the cake I wanted. I wanted a truly custom cake with intricate designs. I went to a couple bakeries that wanted to charge... Read More insane amounts of money or just told me they could not do the cake I envisioned. When I met with Tammy she said she was excited to make the cake and hoped I chose the one I showed her. She was up for the challenge. The cake was the most BEAUTIFUL thing I have ever seen! I did not want to cut it! It was a 6 tier cake with a detailed silver dragee design and edible pearls. She had to apply the design with tweezers (I now feel bad about that). My reception venue second my opinions on the cake and said it was the best one they had seen. Not only was it the most beautiful cake ever but it also tasted delicious! You will not regret going with Tammy, she was amazing!

Tammy is an absolutely lovely lady to work with and her cakes are divine. My main concern with cake was I wanted a cake that tasted amazing and decorations were not as big of a concern to me. That being said, Tammy's cakes taste incredible and her designs are marvelous. She will... Read More also go out of her way to help you find the perfect cake. We wanted a fall flavor for our fall wedding and my husband isn't a fan of pumpkins spice, so despite the fact that it's not listed on her website, she still baked us an incredible apple spice cake that everyone loved. She also met with us multiple times to make sure everything was just right. At our first meeting, we were surprised to find that instead of bringing us a small sample slice of cake or a cupcake like most bakers, she brought us 2 full 6 inch cakes at no charge. When we wanted to taste a different flavor months later, she more than happily baked us another full 6 inch cake for free, and then surprised us with a ton of free cupcakes for my husband's Birthday. In addition to her generosity and her excellent cakes, Tammy is extremely personable, fun to talk to, and our meetings felt more like a meeting with a friend than a meeting with a wedding vendor, which made the entire process even more amazing.

My fiancé and I attempted to schedule a tasting with Tammy, it took her 2 days to respond. After scheduling a tasting she told us a few days before the meeting day that she had forgotten that she had plans on that day and couldn’t make it. Then during our second attempt we had a... Read More family emergency and emailed to say we needed to reschedule, and it took her 4 days to respond. Then on our third attempt we drove 40 minutes away to the meeting spot and waited 30 minutes and she never showed up nor gave us a phone call or email alerting us to the fact that she would be be missing our meeting, at least not until the next day giving excuses as to why she could not meet with us and wanted our time. In the month that we “corresponded” with her she never once responded to our emails or calls until more than 24 hours after or longer. We completely wasted our time with her and do not recommended her to anyone and we are glad we are not using her because we could be assured that she would have failed to actually bring a cake to our wedding day.

So, I'm not going to lie, I tried a lot of cake (A LOT). Many bakeries had spectacular presentation, but the cake itself was bland or even greasy.

Tammy was my favorite vendor of my entire wedding and I cannot sing her praises enough!!
