I am so glad we used Gretchen’s ABS cakes to do our wedding cake! The cake was very reasonably priced, and Gretchen even includes a complimentary “anniversary cake” in the pricing that you can have in addition to or instead of the top of your wedding cake on your 1st anniversary... Read More (or just whenever you feel like eating it). The day I did my cake tasting, Gretchen provided a wide variety of cakes (her shop has an amazing selection of different cakes and fillings/frostings) for me to try, and even let my mom come back with me to try the cake samples again since my mom hadn’t been able to come to the first appointment. Initially I had been afraid that I hadn’t clearly communicated my vision to Gretchen, so she made sure to get out a sheet of paper and sketch out exactly what I wanted the cake to look like, and even made notes on the side to specify the different flavors of each layer and the colors of my wedding. I was so grateful that she took the time to ensure that our wedding cake matched my vision, because it was so amazingly beautiful on the day of our wedding. It was also one of the best cakes that I have ever tasted…the different flavors were so delicious! I can’t wait for another celebratory occasion so I can have one of her amazing cakes again!

Our wedding cake was amazing! We met with Gretchen and showed her a few pictures for wedding cake inspiration a few months before the wedding. During our meeting she let us try different delicious cake flavors to help us make our choice. The cake came out beautiful on our... Read More wedding day, and it was exactly what we wanted. We got so many compliments on how delicious the cake was too. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend. Gretchen and her husband were so sweet!

From the first cake tasting to enjoying our "anniversary cake" as soon as we got back from our honeymoon - everything was perfect! Gretchen knows how to make cakes look great and taste even better! :)

Beautiful & Delicious

Not only was my cake beautiful it was delicious. I was more concerned with having a good cake instead of "a piece of art", but at Gretchen's I found both. The cake was very moist and the icing is yummy! I shopped around with a few other bakeries before deciding on a cake vendor... Read More and I have to say that Gretchen's is the best in the Upstate. In addition, Mrs. Gretchen, the owner, is so sweet and very pleasant to work with.

I loved my cake! It was beautiful... we had discussed them putting flowers on it and they even called the day before the wedding but for some reason they were left off... but it was still beautiful!

Super nice and WONDERFUL cake!

You won't find a better tasting cake than one made in Gretchen's kitchen. The cake was simply beautiful. I came in with a sketch of what I wanted, and they turned it into even better than I imagined. Everyone at the wedding enjoyed both looking at it and eating it!
