rk—both in design and in deliciousness—from Mark & Marie.
My wedding planner was insistent we go with Confectionery Designs. She kept telling me: “They’re the best of the best and you want the best. Trust me on this one.” So we moved forward with hiring Confectionery without having tried any of their food. Their stunning designs and deep creativity—all researched through IG—were enough to sell me. At the least, I knew our cake would be so beautiful.
But holy moly, I had no idea that it would be one of our best wedding decisions ever. Mark and Marie are truly the most delightful humans on the planet. They lead with kindness, openness. We wanted a design that was…complex…to say the least. We had a cake covered in hundreds—likely thousands—of sugar hydrangea leaves. On top of that, the cake had secret love notes from my husband and me in it, which we quietly read to each other at the wedding. Mark and Marie jumped on board the plan and gave it their all. It was a cake unlike anything we had ever seen before. It was a masterpiece! It was what my mother was most excited to see at the whole wedding.
So after seeing it, here I thought, okay, well it’s beyond gorgeous. That’s the best gift ever! Who cares what it tastes like?! Then the first guest went into our dessert room, with sugar cookies, mini donuts, macarons, cheesecakes, key lime pies and beyond. She ran up to me with a plate full of sweets and told me it was the best dessert of her life. Then a second guest came up to me. Then a third, a fourth, a fifth. All were rave reviews. People were asking our wonderful caterers to bring them to-go boxes, so that they could eat their dessert the next day. I literally saw my grandfather leave with a cup full of canolis. Never had I ever heard of anyone loving wedding dessert so much. It was such an unexpected and pure joy!
Then, I ate some leftover cake the next day and my mind was blown. I totally understood. It was the best cake I’ve ever eaten in my life. How could something so gorgeous just also be so delicious?
Well that’s because of Mark & Marie. They can do anything. They are extraordinary and worth every single penny. Although I’m from out of state—and even out of country—I know I will be back to get more of their desserts. My planner was right: They are the best in every way.

Chef Soliday did an absolute incredible job with the entirety of the cake, from its flavor to its presentation. All of my guests are STILL raving about the quality and taste of the cake -- each had stated that it was "the best wedding cake they had ever had". If you are looking for great customer service and a top-quality cake, look no further than Confectionary Designs. I'm already counting down the days until I return back up North to visit their shop.

Confectionery Designs is by far the Newport, RI favorite cake vendor, and for very good reason. Because our design was on the simpler side – but beautiful and elegant – I want to focus on how incredibly tasty our custom flavors were! I communi...
cated primarily with Marie who was extremely kind and accommodating for our Newport tasting...spoiler: every cake and icing we tasted was divine! My husband is Irish, and one of our favorite desserts is sticky toffee pudding. Being Irish herself, Marie loved the idea of recreating this flavor combination as a traditional wedding cake. Despite the fact that this cake is eaten warm, she and her very talented husband found a way to recreate sticky toffee pudding PERFECTLY, incorporating many of the proper ingredients used in the real dessert. We also had a secondary flavor of vanilla pound cake with layers of Baileys and hazelnut frosting. Both were so yummy, and we received several compliments! I cannot wait to dig into the complimentary mini tier Confectionery so kindly gave us!! Thanks so much!

Another great thing about Confectionery Designs is that their Gluten-Free options are also delicious (anyone who is gluten-free knows this is not always the case)! So delicious that you wouldn't even know that it is gluten-free - I am gluten-free and my husband is not and he thought all the gluten-free options were such as delicious as the others (and trust me, he's picky with his baked goods)! If you are looking for a bakery that will go above and beyond, be someone you enjoy working with and bake desserts that your friends/family will rave about - don't think twice and just hire Confectionery Designs! And if you hire them don't stop at just cake - all of their creations are delicious! My absolute all time favorite is their salted caramel French Macarons ... I could eat them every single day! Also, if you live in the area go to their shop and try some of their delicious donuts - you won't regret it!!
