I worked with Katrina at Cakes for Occasions. My husband and I met with three different cake vendors and ultimately chose Cakes for Occasions. Designing a beautiful wedding cake was certainly important to us, but the taste of the cake was the priority. Cakes for Occasions has... Read More many absolutely amazing flavors to chose from and their cake is SO DELICIOUS and is unlike any other wedding cake I have ever tried. We chose Strawberry Grand Marnier and Snickerdoodle and everyone raved about the cake. The taste of the cake was not the only thing that set them apart from other vendors - their service is top notch. At other tastings, we only got to try a tiny bite of cake or the flavors were pre-selected and you didn't get to samples the flavors you were most interested in. At Cakes for Occasions, we were able to try as many of the flavors as we wanted and my husband and I were left alone to truly enjoy the experience together, without feeling pressured or rushed. Being able to try as many flavors as we wanted not only helped us narrow down our favorites, but also demonstrated that every flavor of cake was equally amazing and there was no bad choice. Rather than following tradition and freezing the top tier, Cakes for Occasions bakes brides and grooms a complimentary first anniversary cake so it's fresh. I highly recommend Cakes for Occasions to all brides. I live about 45 minutes from Danvers, but I plan on ordering birthday cakes and desserts for other special occasions from them because they are just that good!

Great cupcakes!

Cakes for Occasions did a great job on my recent wedding at a great pricepoint (180 cupcakes for $500, including delivery & cupcake stand rental). The whole process was very easy: go in to do a tasting, choose flavors and frosting type, give them color swatches and an idea of... Read More decorative accents, and you're done! They were also quite responsive when I changed my mind and wanted a stand rental with setup added to the contract. Their cupcakes are AMAZING, also.

Vanilla Cake, Vanilla Buttercream, KEY LIME MOUSSE with Fresh Raspberries. That should be all I have to say, because it was the best cake we had ever eaten. In fact, I am still eating it, and will be so sad when it is gone. Our base cake was included in our package with Salem... Read More Waterfront from one of two bakeries. The other bakery was rude to me, so I contacted Cakes for Occasions hoping to simply make sure there was dessert for our guests. Katrina at Cakes for Occasions was outstanding. She scheduled an appointment (and then rescheduled due to a conflict with my husband’s schedule). We arrived for our tasting and she walked us through all the flavors they offer, and what was included, as well as what we could upgrade to if we wanted to. And then we got to pick what we wanted to taste. She did not give us a limit on the amount we tasted and brought them all in for us to try. She stepped out of the room and left us alone with all the cake, which was fantastic. My husband probably wishes someone was there when I nearly stabbed him with a fork for taking a bite of the key lime one. Anyway, Katrina came back in and asked us how we were doing, and I said we were trying to decide whether it was worth it to upgrade. I admitted the key lime was my favorite, but said I needed to think about it… instead she sat down (no pressure) and said, let’s work out what it will look like while you thing. She was professional at all times and so wonderful when I asked her if she wouldn’t mind stepping out so the husband and I could discuss the money part. Our cake was beautiful, delicious, and Cakes for Occasions gave us an awesome tasting experience.
