Cakes by Tammy was a vendor that was offered through our wedding venue. We had her cakes before at a friends wedding so it was a no brainer that we were going to use her for our big day. She was able to take a picture of what we wanted and brought it to life. The cake was... Read More exceptional. The butter pecan with butter cream icing is to die for!!!

Tammy is wonderful!

Tammy is by far the best baker I dealt with in my search for my wedding cake. After meeting with her, she insisted that we look at other vendors before making our choice. And after we did, there was no comparison! Tammy makes her clients feel special and appreciated...unlike... Read More other vendors that I dealt with that made me feel like I was a burden or taking up their time. She loved my ideas for my cake and incorporated all of them into what was a beauty! We received tons of compliments on the cake and I'd recommend Tammy in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a baker for whatever the occasion!

So Delicious!

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 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!

This was one of the two choices we had with our package for our wedding and it was the best choice we made with the cake. Tammy was super energetic and she was one that seemed to have a passion for what she does. When we met with her she made us so many choices that we ended... Read More up with layers of different flavors. She does an amazing job with making sure the flavors of cake and icing are exactly to your liking. I love that she makes a separate cake for the anniversary cake. She is very good with details and we couldn't have asked for anything better. All of our guests complimented how amazing the cake was and a portion of it even when back with a friend to Ohio whose parents also raved how good the cake was. So kudos to Tammy and if you're looking for someone with passion on details and flavor, she's the one for you.

She's Amazing!!

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!

Our wedding cake was included in our wedding package from our venue, but we had a choice between two bakers. We chose Cakes by Tammy and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Tammy is such a pleasant person to work with! She listens to exactly what you want and gives... Read More it to you. Our cake was EXACTLY what we wanted! My husband doesn't even like cake, but he looooved Tammy's french vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling which we used in each tier of our wedding cake.

Fixed my cake disaster!

We had orginally booked with another baker who called me and said they could no longer do my cake. That was the best thing that could have ever happened. Tammy saved the day! She met with us at an agreed upon location and built the cake I had designed to the tee. It looked... Read More exactly like my picture.

Thank you Tammy for making such a delicious wedding cake that my husband ate my piece while I wasn't looking!! When I met with Tammy she was friendly and fun to talk to. She was open to all of our ideas and answered a lot of our questions about what was or wasn't possible. When... Read More we showed her some inspiration photos, she immediately understood our vision. When we ran into a road block with the particular color we wanted, she went above and beyond to try and match it. She kept in contact with us and provided us with updates on her progress. When she wasn't able to match the color (it was truly just an odd color), she provided us with many options (even though it was only a week before the big day). Her efforts to make us happy were much appreciated. In the end, she created a beautiful cake that fit what we pictured in our minds AND tasted so very delicious! I can't wait to chow down on that anniversary cake (which she baked and boxed separately for us).

I love cake. I could admittedly eat cake for every meal of the day and not get bored of it. Chocolate, white, red velvet, I don't care...put some icing on it and I'll eat it. Cake = life. Good cake = happiness :) So I know bad cake when I taste it. Tammy's cake is out of... Read More this world, insanely good! The father of one of our wedding guests is a baker and she RAVED about our cake from Tammy, so that is saying something! We opted for 2 tiers of chocolate and 2 tiers of white, both with regular buttercream. The chocolate was perfect! Not too rich but just the right chocolate flavor! The buttercream isn't too sugary or grainy like some can be. The design and the artistry was beautiful!!!! Tammy was incredibly easy to work with and super nice! She put my fiance and I at ease and I felt like we were friends, instead of bride and vendor. Her prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality of work! Stop looking at other bakers right now and do yourself a favor and hire Tammy! You will not be disappointed!!!!

On days I question why I do this for a living (you...

Tammy is by far the best wedding cake vendor in Pittsburgh! Even so, that I decided against our normal "go to" bakery and chose her. She was very pleasant and easy to work with.

Tammy is a REALLY nice woman! Our consultation went so well... that she didn't need to contact us again until 1 month before the wedding. I showed her a photo of the cake I wanted.
