We wanted our cake to be delicious...and after tasting cakes from other vendors, JCakes pumpkin cake was the most moist and flavorful!

I am so pleased with Jcakes for our wedding! We chose their golden cake with mixed berry filling and butter cream frosting with chocolate covered strawberries, which were to die for!!!

JCakes is the best! We visited them to choose our flavors and discuss what kind of design we were looking for. We couldn't choose between two flavor combinations, so they were kind enough to figure out a way to let us have both! They figured out a way to work within our budget...

My husband and I got married at Bill Miller's Castle in Branford, and when we had first gone to see the venue, there was a book that we looked at from JCakes. It was filled with some of the most beautiful cakes I had ever seen! We had also gone to a bridal expo at the venue, and... Read More had tasted the cake shooters from the JCakes booth, and they were absolutely amazing. I knew then that I wanted to go with JCakes! When meeting with Hope for the first time, it was a little awkward because she had to keep stepping away from us to help customers walking into the shop to buy cupcakes. But once we got down to discussing our design and cake flavors, I could tell she became inspired with our ideas, which made us super excited! The day of the wedding when I finally saw my husband, one of the first things he said to me was, "Oh my god, did you see the cake?!" I was absolutely blown away when I finally saw it!! Hope and her team created the most beautiful birdcage themed cake for us that was straight out of my Pinterest dreams! We also got so many compliments from our guests about how moist and delicious the cake tasted. One of my pet peeves as a guest at a wedding, is dry and tasteless boring weddings cakes. My wedding cake was both beautiful and delicious! I could not thank Hope and JCakes enough for all the time and work they put into creating the wedding cake of my dreams! They absolutely outdid themselves!

Extremely disappointed. We messaged them specifically because they mentioned on their site that they could accommodate with gluten free cake. When we got to the tasting, no gluten free cake was made for us to taste. Hope said "we didn't write down you needed gluten free cake.... Read More Sorry." Not sure what they needed written down, since it was in the message I sent to them, and they confirmed in their message back that they'd have gluten free cake for us to try. They apologized, and didn't charge us for the tasting, but we were surprised they made no effort to keep us as clients or to reschedule for another day. They seemed completely uninterested in making our wedding cake, so in the end, I guess we're better off.
