Michelle Effron and Eat Great Cakes are phenomenal! I planned my wedding day on short notice while stationed in Afghanistan and researched wedding cake bakers online. I selected Eat Great Cakes after talking with Michelle. What a Blessing! After telling her my desires, she... Read More agreed to make the small, yet elegant, two-layer wedding cake I wanted on such short notice. The cake we picked up from Michelle the night before the wedding was absolutely beautiful and, without a doubt, one of the best cakes we have ever tasted--extremely moist and palate-pleasing. We could not have been happier. Although it was originally supposed to be just my fiancé, I and the photographer at the ceremony, my fiancé totally surprised me by inviting my children, along with their wives/husbands/ significant others and her sisters. Everyone could not stop commenting on how delicious and beautiful the wedding cake was! There is no question that Michelle is a consummate baker who listens and delivers. She is dedicated to working with the customer to ensure everything is done to perfection. From reviewing other comments and experiencing her expertise firsthand, I do not believe there is anything Michelle cannot do where cakes are concerned. Her cakes are reasonably priced and totally awesome. Definitely add Michelle and Eat Great Cakes to your wedding planning list...you will be elated that you did!

The Most AMAZING Cake I've ever had, that's what Michelle Effron made for me on my wedding day. My husband hates cake (and I still married him) but he loves pie.

Where do I begin!? Michelle, with Eat Great Cakes, is absolutely AMAZING!!!! She and I worked together for an ad agency years ago in New York City and after I moved back home to South Caroline, we continued to keep in touch. I remember eating many sweets that Michelle had baked... Read More while working together, and she had always said that if I ever got married, she would love to bake my cake. Boy, did she deliver! As I prepared for my wedding day, Michelle and I worked together in what felt like a seamless effort to come up with the most perfect wedding cake. I sent her a few ideas I had gathered from Pinterest, but had a few tweaks here and there. Not only did Michelle bring to life the exact cake I was dreaming up, but she exceeded my expectations! The wedding cake was truly delicious. We planned for a chocolate cake with chocolate Italian meringue buttercream. Each tier was 6". The gold layer was a spacer that was covered in gold leaf. An important piece to this story is that my wedding took place in South Carolina. Michelle still works and lives in NYC. She managed to bake the cake, fly it down with her from NYC the day before my wedding and finish it off the next morning - and without a hitch to say the least! Now THAT'S impressive! It was truly a magical day and my husband and I are so very blessed to have had a cake that was made with such serious love. We will forever be grateful to Michelle! If you or anyone you know are ever considering Eat Great Cakes to bake ANYTHING for you, please look no further! You've found your masterpiece!

Michelle at Eat Great Cakes is NYC best kept pastry secret. I have been tasting mouth watering creations from this baker the past 5 years and cannot give enough praise. The design of her cakes are so elegant you almost feel bad when you cut into the artwork but that's soon... Read More forgotten after one bite! My favorite is her banana cake with butter cream but her moist lemon cake tastes just as divine. Keep in mind, she can make almost anything, not just cakes! Her homemade pies, puddings, biscottis, chocolate chip cookies, kouglof, tarts, eclair au chocolat, kouign amann, profiteroles, madeleines and just plain chocolate pieces are also out of control delicious. This is just to name a few. Michelle is always taking workshops in the City and being invited to Paris to constantly fine tune her already perfected craft. This is an honest, hardworking pastry chief who is not satisfied until her work looks and tastes like the best piece of sweetness you've ever had. You'll see her competing and winning on Cake Wars in no time.
