Wedding cakes do not get any tastier/beautiful/personal than Lori's. From the start, Lori and her husband make you feel cared about. I never once felt like they just wanted my business. The week before the wedding they call you to finalized details. After talking to Lori, I... Read More instantly felt relaxed as I knew she would be totally in charge of it. My husband and I really liked our tasting, but the actually wedding cake was TO DIE FOR. It was moist, not overly sweet, and had tons of flavor. We had many guest tell us that it was the best wedding cake they had ever had. If you want personalized exceptional care - look no further than Classic cakes by Lori

Everything about Classic Cakes by Lori was fabulous! From the very beginning, they were super responsive to calls and emails (perfect for an anxious bride), and made the entire process from tasting to day-of easy. We had a beautiful display of cupcakes in 5 DELICIOUS flavors,... Read More with a top tier for my husband and I to cut into, and a Captain America Shield for the groom's cake (which was a wedding day surprise that was pulled off flawlessly). I brought a few pictures and a paint swatch that matched the color of my dress to the tasting and, from that, Lori created a masterpiece! I emailed after our tasting explaining that I wanted to add the surprise groom's cake to the order, and Jeremy helped me pull that off with ease. Can't say enough about this lovely group of people. HIGHLY recommend!

OMG!!! Amazing!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lori and her staff. I chose Classic Cakes by Lori for my daughter's wedding in January because as a former wedding planner I'd done a wedding with Lori before. I knew how passionate she was about her cakes, and the... Read More personal touch she offers making you feel like your cake is the only one she is working on, when I found out they do many many wedding cakes every weekend. She had 6 cakes on my daughter's wedding day. Yes, the drive to Dripping Springs to her shop is rather lengthy but so well worth it! Right from the beginning, her staff couldn't have been more helpful. Danny (name?) even had the brillant suggestion that since my daughter's dress was a medium ivory color that the icing should be that color also instead of white as he said it would look much better in the pictures. As the day approached, Lori called me to discuss final details, and she wanted to perfectly match the icing color and suggested I go to the paint store and get a paint swatch that matched the dress, which I did. I told her my daughter wanted a simple cascade down the side of the 4 layer cake, careful to not use too many flowers which overwhelms the cake itself. Again, wanting it to be exactly as my daughter and I wanted, she suggested I look at pictures on her website as well as other websites and send her a picture so she'd be clear. Our flowers were from Central Market, and the flowers they sent for the cake were far more than Lori could use. Lori later told me the venue suggested that she (the baker) put the extra flowers into some vases they provided to use as extra flower arrangements. She said she had never been asked to do that before, but she agreed as she wanted to be as helpful as she could! The cake was a work of art, incredibly gorgeous! And the groom's cake was a 14 inch round dark chocolate with peanut butter filling and the Texan team logo on top. I was concerned that everyone's lips and teeth would be red and blue, but they assured me they would not, which they weren't. I'm not usually a cake person, but I will have to say, the almond cake with fresh strawberries and cream fillling with buttercream icing was incredible!! I found myself eating an entire huge piece later in the night. And the groom's cake was definitely a rich cake for the serious chocolate lover, and serving it with milk was a huge hit as well. We thought we had more cake than we did guests and assumed there would be left overs for later in the night, but there wasn't! The guests had feasted well on Lori's incredible cakes.

We had a strict budget for our cake and Lori and her team made our dream cake happen within our budget. The cake was so good we only had a piece to take home and freeze, everyone raved about it and some had multiple servings. When I first reached out to Lori and her team, they... Read More set up a call to discuss my budget and some options. We settled on a 2 tier cake (6" and 8") to display on a sweetheart table with decorations around and sheet cake for catering to cut and serve as dessert for guests. This not only made cake cutting efficient but also ensured we stayed within our budget. Lori's team is impeccable. Jeremy was super responsive to emails and always available for a call. The cake tasting couldn't have gone better, we were able to try up to 5 different combinations and it was very hard to settle on one but the Bavarian cream is something you just wont find anywhere else. Also, we loved that since Lori is local to Dripping Springs we did have a delivery fee!! If you want amazing cake, with great service and your guests having seconds go with Classic Cakes by Lori. You'll never have better cake in your life!!

Best cake ever!! I had a simple 4 tier wedding cake with ivory icing and a few flowers and it was exactly what I wanted.
