Spectacular Cupcake Wedding Cake!

Reviewed on 9/26/2014

I apologize for not writing a review sooner about the wonderful, and most beautiful cupcake wedding cake Classic Bakery made for our son and now his lovely wife's wedding day. The cake was the centerpiece at the Sequoia Restaurant where the wedding reception took place. The... Read More artful and elaborate yet refine set up of the jeweled stand where the 200 cupcakes layed was perfection. All the guests including the bride and groom were in awe of it and no one wanted to take a cupcake in fear of ruining the wedding cake's glory. However everyone did at the end of the evening and those velvety cupcakes were delicious! Wedding: 05/25/2014

Amazing Cake

We used this bakery for our June 2014 wedding in Alexandria, VA. We had three tiered chocolate cake with peanut butter filling. The cake was delicious and it looked great. It was everything I wanted.

If you are looking for a cake that is not only beautiful but tastes amazing then this is the place. My friends still talk about how amazing me cake was. This bakery is family owned and when you meet with the wedding cake consultant they make you feel welcome and at home. They... Read More helped me design exactly what I wanted. After meeting with a lot of crazy wedding vendors that treated me like a dollar sign instead of a person it was so nice to have someone sit down and spend time with me. The really listened to what I wanted and helped me make my wedding cake dreams come true. They do one on one cake tastings and help you pick you flavors. AMAZING customer service and I couldn't be happier with my cake!

Classic Bakery made us three gorgeous, delicious 12" cakes for our wedding: chocolate salted caramel, chocolate raspberry, and red velvet with cream cheese. They were light, fluffy, moist, intensely flavored, and adored by all our guests, easily feeding all 100 of them. By... Read More ordering 3 individual cakes, we got a variety of flavors and decorations and paid about 50% of the price that we would have spent had we ordered a full wedding cake. One caveat: communicating with the staff was a challenge initially. They did not have our tasting order ready when we arrived to pick it up, and they were difficult to reach via email or phone trying to set up the order. However, once they moved to their new location, it appears they changed staff, and this new staff was very responsive and easy to work with.

Be careful with vendor reliability. Scheduled a tasting through their website and received a confirmation of time and place. We drove a half hour from Alexandria, only to arrive and be told there was a mistake and our samples were in Gaithersburg. Wasted an entire afternoon.... Read More Would not trust for wedding.

The best wedding cake ever! Everyone thought the cake was to die for. We had two flavors, vanilla on vanilla but the very best was chocolate cake and peanut butter icing!

Omg, where do I began?!! Areen is the man who baked our wedding cake. Prior to booking with Classic Bakery, we went for a cake tasting and ended up buying their tiramisu bites. They were sooo good, each time we met with Areem, we bought cake lol, at some point he stopped... Read More charging us!!! He was very nice, very good at responding e-mails and worked with me even though I was soooo indecisive!I must've sent him 100 different cake designs hahaha!! He is amazing, but the wedding cake was out of this world!!!! We got so many compliments!!! I could not believe how beautiful it looked. Areen did a great job bringing my vision to life and incorporating his ideas with mine. He is the best and the cake tastes like heaven. If you are in the wedding planning stage, pleas make sure you check out Classic Bakery!! . Even the cakes at wedding Expos weren't that good. We are sooooo glad we found this bakery. Its simply THE BEST BAKERY IN THE DMV AREA!!!! Thank you Areen and the whole Classic Bakery staff!!! You gus are amazing!!!! :) xoxo

My Experience with Classic

Reviewed on 10/18/2012 Sabrina K

The consultant impressed me with our consultation. We had a ribbon boarder on each tier and he measured how much we would need and converted it into yards to make it easier when I went to the store. The delivery arrived on time however my photographer had to stop my photo shoot... Read More to direct the men to the reception hall. They dropped off the cake and left. I later learned that they forgot the cake toppers, which they made me leave with them when we placed the order. My father in law had to call them to come back with the toppers. Thanks to him, I missed all the drama, but a bit sloppy on their part. The cake looked and tasted great and they promise a fresh cake on your anniversary so you don't have to freeze the top.

My husband and I were married this past June 16th and we ordered our cake from Classic Bakery. I had two other tastings before I choose Classic bakery. I fell in love with their designs as well as the taste. I had one issue with my cake the day of the wedding. My cake was not... Read More designed the way I had discussed with classic bakery, but it was still beautiful and delicious. I never contacted the company to let them know the problem only because I had to deal with a different and much bigger issue that had occurred the day of my wedding. Complaining just seemed ridiculous since the cake ended up being amazing in the end. Although I was a little disappointed, I would still recommend them to others. I believe mistakes happen, but they were still very good.

Our cake from this bakery was great. Somehow it's really hard to find a wedding cake that's not just looks good, but also one that tastes good. I am very happy I found Classic Bakery. Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious!

Incredibly gorgeous and delicious cake

Delicious pie!

Reviewed on 12/08/2011 Steven R

Since we got married in November and our wedding venue had a rustic feel, Steve and I chose to have various types of pie as our dessert, rather than wedding cake. The pies from Classic Bakery were excellent!! We chose to have apple, blueberry, and cherry (especially since they... Read More were a bit more affordable than other types including pumpkin). Areen was particularly helpful in helping me select types and place the order. One thing to note: when I originally called Classic Bakery for information about their pies, they quoted me one price. Unfortunately, when I called back a few months later to actually place the order, they quoted me a higher price. It was still affordable, but I just wanted to note that. Overall, I would highly recommend their pies, also just the idea of having pie instead of wedding cake. Our guests really enjoyed it!!

Beautiful Cake of my Dreams

I first time I met Classic Bakery, was at the Washington DC Bridal Expo. They cake we tasted, was literally the most delicious cake I had every had! I immediately had my heart set :) We went and met with the bakery in person and the owner assured us that they could make the... Read More cake that I had brought in out of a magazine. They cake was a Collette Peters cake, with one topsy turvy layer. When I saw the cake at my reception I almost cried. It was exactly what I had dreamed of. The only problem was, throughout the night the top layer completely fell off and crashed to the floor. I do not know if this is a guests fault who may have bumped the table, or if this was something that could have been avoided when building the cake. Either way the cake was delicious and beautiful!
