From the first time I tasted their cupcakes, I was sold that THIS would be my wedding cake. The only challenge I had was deciding on flavors...and then not eating it all by myself!!!!

My husband and I were counting down the days till our wedding, partly because we knew we would get to eat our FABULOUS cake! Magpies helped us achieve exactly what we envisioned. Half of our cake was strawberry-orange and the other half was mango-coconut-key lime. The... Read More frosting was buttercream. It was so delicious, I cannot wait to have the top layer at our anniversary! We may have to order some cupcakes of both our flavors until then...myself, my husband and our guests could not have been more impressed with Magpies quality of their cakes!

We had a classic 3-tier cake for our wedding. Peg's cakes are unique because they are DELICIOUS, versus crappy-tasting wedding cake. Our guests raved about the cake.

Magpies did an absolutely incredible job on both our wedding and groom's cake! We did two cake tastings with Magpies and absolutely fell in love with their fun flavors and the stunning cakes they made in the past. We provided them with pictures from Pinterest and they were... Read More absolutely picture perfect- the colors and textures were exactly what we were looking for, and they specifically purchase a cake stand we were able to rent to complement it. For the wedding cake we decided on three tiers with different flavors, textures, and colors on each... a lot to go wrong, but everything was perfect: First layer: vanilla cake with raspberry filling. Second layer: chocolate cake with hazelnut filling. Third layer: vanilla cake with strawberry shortcake filling. Groom's cake: Chocolate Guinness cake with Bailey's cream cheese filling. How fun! I have never seen a cake so gorgeous, and it still tasted wonderful! Instead of saving the top layer, we are making a special trip on our one year anniversary to recreate our first bite with a fabulous and fresh mini-cake!

Magpies is hands down, the best bakery in town for cakes. Our wedding cake was a strawberry cream cake with an abundance of strawberry flavor.

My husband and I loved our wedding cake from Magpie's!! I worked mainly with Ryan Huddleston, and she was awesome. We had an Italian Cream wedding sheet cake with a fondant overlay- decorated to look like an old book (my husband is an English scholar). I didn't give them a...

We also had several dozen assorted cupcakes - they have regular sized, and mini-sized, so we did a mix of both, in their "deluxe" assorted flavors. The display was so pretty! I couldn't keep people away from the cupcakes - they were mostly eaten before we even cut our cake. I would highly recommend Magpie's. Their cakes and cupcakes are delicious, and so charming. I know they do really elaborate cakes, but I really just wanted something that looked like real food, real dessert at least - and that is exactly what they made for us. They are easy to work with, and it is just obvious they take great pride in making desserts that people enjoy.

Magpies does a nice job of implementing your ideas for a wedding cake. They do a generous tasting, and part of your payment for the tasting goes towards the deposit on the cake should you choose to use them. The cake was very good, but somewhat expensive for its size. The best... Read More compliment I can give them is that they have a lot of ideas and really help you personalize your cake.
