Mary Ann was one of our favorite vendors to work with for our 10/01/23 Lake Placid, NY wedding. Since day one and the tasting that we had, we cannot stop talking about how much we enjoyed being invited into her home and tasting her amazing cake...
creation. We felt as if we were sitting in our family member’s house telling stories of our lives. Throughout the whole cake designing process Mary Ann was very communicative and helped give us ideas by sketching out designs for us. She was able to re-create our vision of a mountain themed cake so well! We loved how pretty it turned out and how yummy it was. It was the best quality cake we ever had. We cannot wait to have our one year anniversary cake that she packaged up for us so nicely! We are sad to know that we are the last wedding cake she was doing before she retired her business :( She is truly the most talented cake designer we know of. Thank you for everything!

Mary Ann made the absolute best cake I have ever tasted. It was stunning and incredibly delicious. It was everything I could have ever dreamt of. I did vanilla cake with lemon curd for two of four layers and chocolate with raspberry compote for...
the other two layers. Everything was delicious and fresh. All of my guests raved about the cake for days. I highly suggest ordering your wedding cake with her. She was always available to talk, incredibly helpful, and willing to change the date when we had to post-pone out wedding. I loved everything about my experience with her.

I really feel like I had the "total package" when it came to finding The Fancy Cake Box and designing our wedding cake. I can't recommend Mary Ann at The Fancy Cake Box enough! For reference, we had two layers of vanilla cake, one layer of chocolate in between, and the compote was strawberry. The outer coating was milk chocolate ganache coated with white fondant.

We loved working with Mary Ann! We weren't able to go to NY for a tasting so she sent the tasting to us, which was awesome. We discussed our cake ideas with her and she came up with a design that we loved - and it was even better in real life.
Mary Ann was patient and kind and made it a point to check in with us throughout the planning process. The cake was stunning and was exactly what we were looking for, and it was absolutely delicious. I was very happy to be able to meet Mary Ann (finally!) on our wedding day and get the chance to chat with her afterwards while we were still in NY. She's fantastic at what she does and is overall an amazing person. Mary Ann truly cares about her clients and we are so grateful to have had her be a part of our wedding.

the process so easy and stress free which was huge this year. Not only did she help with the cake but she helped with SO MANY other wedding details when we were scrambling to change things months and weeks before the big day! She was also so flexible and accommodating and downright one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet. I honestly can’t say enough great things about her. She’s a miracle worker!! We explained to her what we wanted, and the outcome was so much better than we could have ever imagined. The cake didn't even look real, it was literally so perfect! All of the flowers on the cake were sugar flowers all handmade by her 😳 and we still have them all! She thought of EVERY detail and even incorporated our fur babies onto the cake 🥰 Not only did the cake look beyond amazing it was honestly the BEST cake we have ever eaten. I HIGHLY recommend Mary Ann, you will be so glad you picked her I promise!

The red velvet with marzipan fill was absolutely amazing as was the vanilla cake with raspberry and wedding bouquet butter cream fill. Our guests even ate the fondant because it was so good! If you are unsure of flavors Mary Ann will guide you in the right direction. There were many times when I said "do what you think, I trust you" and I'm so glad I did. She also gave us all the needed instructions for cutting and storing of the cake. She's phenomenal and we definitely recommend booking her if you are on the fence!!

The cake with the bird topper was our wedding cake :D
First, I cannot write this review without saying what an absolute pleasure Mary Ann is; she is such a nice person and really listens to everything you ask for when it comes to the look and ...
taste of your cake. She was always accessible via email or telephone, and constantly kept us updated with the timeline to get information back to her and also sketches of what our cake would look like. Our wedding cake adventure with The Fancy Cake Box began with our cake tasting in Mary Ann's home. We had looked at some other cake vendors in the Lake Placid area where we got married, but their decorative skills paled in comparison AND they were very costly for what you got.
We had what I liked to call a "woodland fairy tale" sort of wedding, with Adirondack-woodland charm. Naturally we wanted a birch cake. Now, I'm sure you've seen some "birch" cakes out there that are just white frosting with black lines...that is what other bakers do. Mary Ann is the real deal! Mary Anne crafts her cakes in such a way that it looks like legitimate tree bark! Our cake was so realistic and rustic in the most beautiful way. Then she also made gum past flowers that perfectly matched our cake topper and were so pretty! The cake was a real focal point at our wedding reception.
So after all of that, you might think that to have a large cake and so amazingly decorated, it must be dry or taste like typical wedding cake...not so! Mary Ann is seriously skilled. Everyone was raving for weeks after our wedding over how moist and delicious the cake was. She makes her own fondant and it's actually good! Our cake flavor was maple with a vanilla buttercream, and it was SO GOOD! We can't wait to eat the top tier for our first anniversary!!
If you're getting married in upstate NY and want to have the prettiest and most delicious wedding cake, that will fill you with present tastiness and wonderful memories for years to come, then you should go with The Fancy Cake Box!
