I was so pleased with the tasting and happy with my choice. I worked with Megan and I would say her response time was slow I would eventually receive my answers. I was very impressed with the tasting and loved my flavors at the wedding. Unfortunately they aesthetics of the cake were not up to par of excellent craftsmanship. For what I paid for a 4 tier cake lace seams should not be shown on the front of the cake. I hated all the photos because there are seams all over the cake. I felt it was poor work from my experience especially for what you pay for wedding cakes. If all you care about is taste then I would use them, but not for quality and art.
From my very first inquiry, For Goodness Cakes were amazing to work with. Megan and the team were uber-responsive and made the whole process of selecting a wedding cake fun. When we went for the tasting we were hooked, the cakes tasted fabulous and we had serious trouble narrowing down our selection. We were floored by how consistent the texture was across each cake we tasted and how spot on the flavors were! These cakes tasted REAL – no fake strawberry or lemon in the fruit flavors and we could swear we saw real vanilla bean in the vanilla cake! On our wedding day, the cake looked just like we hoped and tasted even better. Our guests absolutely loved it and people went back for seconds so they could try the different layers. We went with a semi-naked style cake and the folks at Goodness Cakes pulled it off fabulously – no loss of moisture whatsoever! We used our own toppers and the team at FGC made sure that they made it to our wedding in one piece. We can’t recommend these guys enough – originally we weren’t going to save any of our cake for our first anniversary, however the finished was soo amazing we changed our minds and have a large chunk of the Southern Pecan safely stored away to enjoy on our anniversary- if it lasts that long.
My fiancé was kind enough to ask if he could be in charge of tackling something during wedding planning season. I fortunately agreed and asked him to decide on a wedding cake vendor. He chose For Goodness Cakes and I couldn't have been happier with the decision. When we went to test cakes, we had so much fun! Megan was so sweet and easy to work with. They were wonderful about my gluten allergy and the strawberry GF cake was amazing! Several of my guests could not get over how wonderful the cakes tasted. One of them even said it was the best wedding cake she'd ever had. We will definitely be using For Goodness Cakes for all of our specialty cake needs!
A truly wonderful experience from start to finish. Megan was such a pleasure to work with and helped bring my vision to life. She was extremely professional throughout the whole process and would respond right away to any questions I would have. She offered great advice in helping me design my cake and made sure we came up with something I loved. All of our guests raved over the unique groom’s cake and our five-tier wedding cake. Not only did the cakes look amazing, but they were absolutely delicious as well. The orange velvet, champagne, and chocolate cake flavors are out of this world. Although I only managed a bite of cake that night, everyone I spoke to that tried them had extremely high praise for both the appearance and taste. I look forward to really enjoying it on our anniversary cake (that they are providing at no additional charge). If you choose For Goodness Cakes, you will receive the highest quality in aesthetics and taste, and your guests will thank you again and again!
I had FGC at my sister's wedding and it was so amazing that I used my one vendor not on my venue's list to get them for cakes as well. Melonie was so sweet and did an amazing job on our delicious cake. We did 4 tiers and a sheet cake because we wanted so many flavors. The pecan is amazing. Cookies and cream and orange velvet (like creamsicle) are soo good too. The cake was so moist and the frosting was so rich. If I had to have a complaint, I wouldn't have much of one. I will say they have a ton of brides in to the foam cake idea. Personally, I would never go for that unless it saved a bunch of money, but it seems like it only makes their lives easier, but costs the same. Either way, our traditionally cake was fantastic. Definitely highly recommend.
Affordable, Beautiful, Delicious! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! The cake was wonderful!! It was the icing on Mykela and Mario's day! You are amazing For Goodness Cake!!!

We had champagne cake, and it was amazing! Everyone at the wedding loved it, and they were surprised by the flavor. It was beautifully done, and they did a great job taking my inspiration photos and turning them into a design perfect for us. They were also flexible about setting up appointments and allowing us to bring some cake to my out-of-state of fiance for tasting.
Best Wedding Cake Ever!Reviewed on 10/31/2014 Elena G
We hired For Goodness Cakes for a few reasons. They were more affordable than the other option we considered and they were very professional during our consultation. We met with Megan for the consultation and she constructed a wedding cake of foam tiers so we could get a visual of what the cake would look like. She was very helpful in answering my questions and was flexible when we wanted to make changes to ensure that our cake was exactly what we wanted. The cake samples that she had for us to taste were all delicious! We chose the champagne cake with a raspberry filling and a strawberry cake with strawberry cream cheese filling. Our cake turned out beautifully and our guests all loved the flavors we chose. We hope it tastes just as good on our one year anniversary!
Beautifully delicious!!!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Kat J
My family has been buying their cakes since Melonie started the business. Melonie and her fellow cake decorators are really artists at heart. They are so creative and talented. They did a Steampunk cake for our wedding, and it was perfect! She even included an intricate lace on the layers which was so beautiful. She made a lifesize copy of my husband's favorite guitar for the groom's cake. They taste even better than they look. The orange velvet disappeared almost immediately. I'm glad I asked the caterer to go ahead and set a slice aside for us.
Amazing CakesReviewed on 10/27/2014
Melonee and her staff are great to work with! The cakes look amazing but better yet they taste amazing. We had a 4 tier steampunk cake with gears, hand done lace and a corset at the top of the cake. The groom's cake was a replica of a custom made guitar. All of the details were perfect even down to the type of screws on the guitar. We had vanilla with raspberry filling and champagne icing, creamsicle cake, pumpkin cake, and chocolate on chocolate for the groom cake. Something for everybody. The cake was fresh and beautiful. If you want precision, beauty and great taste this is the place to go.

For Goodness cakes did an amazing job on our wedding cake. Megan was very helpful and stayed within my budget and still was able to give me my dream cake. The best part is the cake is absolutely delicious!!
Wedding cake that was gorgeous AND delicious!Reviewed on 9/13/2014 Laura H
We loved working with For Goodness Cakes, especially seeing as we didn't really know what to get for our wedding cake - they definitely provided us with lots of amazing solutions and the cake itself was absolutely amazing. My husband and I are both music lovers and our very simple cake was piped with music notes on every tier. We finally decided on 4 tiers with 2 tiers being orange flavored cake with white chocolate cream cheese filling and 2 tiers being champagne flavored cake (absolutely amazing!) with a raspberry filling. Our guest absolutely loved it and even though our bridal party sat on the top tier in the limo, Megan offered to make us a new tier for our one year anniversary! Best wedding cake vendor we could have asked for!!!
Simply Sweet!Reviewed on 8/21/2014 Aishah J
I enjoyed working with For Goodness Cakes to design my cake. Their prices are reasonable, and they worked really hard to give me exactly what I wanted for the price I wanted to pay.
Our guests couldn't stop talking about them!Reviewed on 6/18/2014 Jenna M
FGC was recommended to us by our caterer. They were easy to communicate with, warm, and welcoming. My husband and I did a tasting and couldn't have loved it more. We asked for a simple design because we wanted our florist to decorate it with fresh flowers. They did a wispy finish with buttercream icing and it was the perfect compliment to the beautiful flowers and to our comfortable, elegant, southern wedding. We chose classic vanilla for three of our layers and lemon for one of the larger layers. I only wish that we'd done more of it in lemon. Both were amazingly delicious, but the lemon was gone in a flash. People couldn't stop talking about both of our cakes. My husband wanted a University of Tennessee themed groom's cake and they did it well! We had orange and white checkerboard, and orange "power T", and some lyrics from "Rocky Top". They even got that obnoxious shade of orange just right ;) High praise coming from his Alabama fan bride!
Gorgeous & Delicious!Reviewed on 6/11/2014 Bre H
I am so happy with our wedding cake! We chose the butter pecan which is to die for, champagne with raspberry filling, and strawberries and cream for our top tier to save. The decoration was exactly what I wanted. It was perfect; guests couldn't believe it was real. For Goodness Cakes is professional, accommodating, and the cakes taste amazing! Thank you!
Melt in your mouth cake!Reviewed on 5/15/2014 Emmy S
I have been known to be a bit of a cake snob and this cake stole my heart at our tasting! Not only was each flavor amazing but they also made a beautiful cake exactly how I envisioned. Many of our guests told us it was one of the best cakes they have ever tasted.
Amazing custom cake!!Reviewed on 4/17/2014 Jennifer D
For Goodness Cakes made a custom Chuck Taylor grooms cake for our wedding. The cake absolutely exceeded our expectations and was even more delicious than the samples we tested. The cake was a huge hit at the wedding and we took one of the shoes home to share with our family the next day to make sure they got a piece. They loved the details and how tasty it was as well. We could not believe how much the cake looked exactly like Chuck Taylor shoes. The quality of the artwork was like something you would see on TV and totally worth every dollar we spent! I would highly recommend For Goodness Cakes and will absolutely go to them again for any custom or big event cake I need in the future.

We purchased our Groom's Cake and Wedding Cake from For Goodness Cakes. They were both unique and delicious and exactly what we had planned. Our guests are still commenting on how great the cake was! They were so easy to work with and very quick to respond to questions. I recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful, unique and delicious cake and I can't wait to use them again for future events!

Absolutely Amazing!Reviewed on 9/13/2013 Melinda P
The search for my cake vendor was quite the process. For Goodness Cakes was the 5th and final tasting. I love to bake and I'm pretty picky about what I consider good. My cake was absolutely incredible. Several guests commented on how yummy it was. The design was exactly what I created during our consult. I ended up paying more than the other bakeries quoted, but you get what you pay for! The cake was delivered on time. They were very responsive to emails and phone calls. Would definitely use them again when I don't feel like baking my own cake. :)

Melonie Stanger was a joy to work with in helping my wedding planner and I with selecting our wedding cake. I loved that at our cake tasting Melonie took her time to explain to us the different options that we had and we were able to sample them all were delicious! After brainstorming for a little while we decided on a cake! The wedding cake was based off of another cake my wedding planner/designer and my cake artist created for a magazine photo shoot honoring Audrey Hepburn's classic black and white hat. I loved it so much I wanted to have a version of it for my day and they came up with the most amazing cake and it tasted amazing too! The flavor was vanilla with a champagne filling. When we arrived at our wedding reception the cake was the focal point in the room. It looked amazing and all of our guest agreed that it tasted great! We will definitely recommend Melonie and her team at For Goodness Cakes to everyone and will use them in the future.
Goodness - This Cake wad GOOD!Reviewed on 7/25/2013 Jacquel E
It was wonderful working with Meghan. It took only about 15 mins to design my cake and I loved that I was able to do 2 different flavors of cake. AND the cake was so moist and delicious. My guests are still talking about it! They also showed up at Ashton Gardens on time & had everything setup and ready to go.
Excellence in Professionalism and Baking!Reviewed on 7/05/2013 Jessie P
I found out about For Goodness Cakes bakery on The Knot.com. I was so impressed by their website – it was the best bakery website I had seen because they had all of their information about flavors and fillings right there. Plus I had been looking everywhere for someone who would do a chocolate ganache filling. Not only was the huge photo gallery of cakes impressive and beautiful, but it also really helped me decide on the details of my cake! From the first time I contacted For Goodness Cakes, I received excellent customer service. Everyone I spoke to was friendly and helpful. Since I was planning an out of town wedding, they worked with me to schedule a tasting consultation during a visit. Melonie went above and beyond to deliver an exceptional customer experience – and my wedding cake truly was the best tasting cake of my life! I chose the vanilla bean yellow cake with milk chocolate ganache filling and buttercream icing in a simple and elegant design. They got every detail perfect! I whole-heartedly recommend For Goodness Cakes to everyone for wedding cakes or any special event cake. The cake was delicious, the details were beautiful, and the customer service was incredible.

We couldn't have chosen a better place to get our wedding cake from. The taste and design was amazing and they were so great to work with. I can't wait until our 1 year anniversary so we can dig into our cake topper! So delicious!
