I am still dreaming of the dessert table from my wedding thanks to the amazingly talented Katie Cakes!! I have a sweet tooth and I am a passionate home baker, so I was very excited and particular about the dessert table at my wedding. I always joked that I would have seven... Read More wedding cakes at my wedding and when it came time to actually plan the big day, choosing a baker was very important to me. I met Katie for a tasting and I was sold within moments of tasting her food. She prepared a tasting with an array of desserts that were all more delicious than the last. I knew I wanted to work with her and she was a delight to communicate with and helped me plan a phenomenal display of desserts that people still tell me were as delicious as they were beautiful. The site coordinator at my wedding said to me on my wedding day, "I have done more than 160 weddings here and when I saw your dessert table, my jaw dropped to the floor. It was so beautiful and it is absolutely delicious." I felt the same. Katie understood the look of the table that I was dreaming of and she made that a reality! The quality and design of her work was phenomenal. I couldn't recommend her more highly. I didn't want a table that simply looked good. I wanted a wedding cake that people would remember for it's amazing taste and she definitely made that happen! The two-tier wedding cake, cupcakes, brownies, cake pops, shooters, and even the macarons she made were all delicious. I am so happy we chose Katie for our wedding and I am now trying to think of an excuse to hire her again. Her cakes really are that good!

I would consider myself an amateur baker, I bake for charity events and have done a couple of baby and bridal showers. I tell you this so you know that I know my cakes. With that being said Katie is hands down the BEST EVER. I have never had such great cake! We hired Katie for... Read More our wedding this past May and I can't even begin to describe how wonderful everything was! The cakes were drop dead gorgeous! I decided to have three smaller cakes instead of one big one. Each cake had its own flavor and its own style. Even though each one was different they all worked together to make a beautiful display. Along with the three cakes on display, we ordered one sheet cake for the back so we could have four flavors. The cakes were perfectly baked, not too dry and not too moist. The icing was heavenly, I could have eaten a pool full of that icing. I have been to many weddings and at many of them I didn't eat the cake and many of the other guests didn't either. But not at our wedding! Our guests had a piece of each flavor! Everyone was asking who did the cake because it was the best they ever had! That goes to show you how great the cake was! We did have leftovers and we ate the leftovers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner the days after. It was too good not to eat it all the time. Katie is truly a talented and wonderful baker, her cakes are gorgeous and delicious. AND her prices are amazing! So if you are looking for amazing cake, service and price Katie Cakes Cakery is what you need. Absolutely the BEST!

The cupcakes that we got through Katie Cakes for our wedding were hands-down the best cupcakes we've ever had.

I recently got married and used Katie's Bakery for our wedding cake/cupcakes. During our Consultation we gave Katie a few photos of what we had in mind for the look of our cake. We were going for a rustic fall theme. When my husband and I saw the cake for the first time at our... Read More reception we were beyond pleased. It looked even better than we imagined! It was a tree with carvings of mine and my husbands initials in it. It was very detailed and as realistic as a cake can be. And it tasted amazing! The cupcakes were out of this world! I had several guests ask us where we had them made. It's not easy finding a bakery that can pull off the look you want PLUS the finished product still tastes great. Katie also made our lives easier by delivering everything to the reception venue and setting it up. I'm blessed to have a small business like Katie's so close to home. Her cakes taste better than any big chain bakery I've ever visited! I am very pleased with her services and I look forward to using her in the future.
