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!

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.

Katie Cakes Cakery also made the bride's 6 tier wedding cake that was brilliantly lit by the venue and complemented the flavors found in the dessert table. I loved the varying textures in the cake's decorating. It felt like it had a lot of character but was still sophisticated the way a wedding cake should be. I have never seen a dessert table like that before at a wedding but I'm thinking we'll see more soon!
