Wow Factor Cakes was awesome! We ended up moving out of town before the wedding so I did a lot of communication via email and the customer service was spot on.

The Wow Factor Cakes definitely lives up to their name! The cake they made for our wedding was definitely WOW worthy! They were great to work with and very professional.

The flavor of the cake was amazing and mouth watering probably the best I've ever had !! They also had so much selection to choose from from flavors, design, style I felt like they really had all the equipment they needed to make the cake of my dreams where as many other cake vendors I spoke with said they couldn't do the design I wanted but charged the same price. Also they sent us home with cake to eat at the hotel which was nice cause I didn't have time to eat it at the actual wedding. Thank you so much Wow Factor Cakes we loved our beautiful cake! -The Boyds

Wow is right. I chose Wow Factor Cakes for a surprise groom's cake for my husband at our rehearsal dinner after stopping by their shop and seeing their stunning designs (and tasting their delicious cake pops!). We had a tailgate themed rehearsal dinner so WFC worked with me to... Read More design a custom cake that looked like a soft cooler with my husband's favorite team's logo, his favorite beer bottles coming out of the top (which looked insanely real and like they were chilling on ice that also looked incredibly real) and other personal touches of his favorite things (they even personalized the tag of the bag with his nickname). This cake was the talk of the rehearsal dinner and an absolute show stopper. Everyone was taking pictures of it and my husband was blown away. Oh, and it was DELICIOUS (not like a lot of highly designed cakes) to boot! I have recommended Wow Factor Cakes to all my friends in the Charlotte area for weddings (we didn't have a cake at our wedding), rehearsal dinners, or any celebratory event - and some have proactively asked for their information who were at our rehearsal dinner!

After an amazing tasting where we helped to create our dream wedding cake, we were beyond excited to see the beauty come to life at our wedding. To our amazement, and horror, the day of our wedding, two hours prior to the reception, we found out that Wow Factor had forgotten... Read More to make our cake. Thankfully, we had a fantastic wedding coordinator who quickly leaped into action, going to another bakery who kindly donated a fake cake so we had something to pretend to cut into. While this is not something that ruins a wedding, our hopes of having the moment of cutting into our cake, with our beautiful monogramed cake knife, were gone. We were contacted by Wow Factor when we returned from our honeymoon and received a very nice apology, promising a favor in the future. We certainly understand that mistakes happen, however, it was still extremely disappointing. We intend to use Wow Factor for our promised favor, however besides that, we will be advising our friends to look elsewhere.

I may be skewing the data here... I had a tasting with Wow Factor and wow is right! SUPER TASTY. They were up for doing my design and all was well. My unfortunate situation was due to a few things. I think the design I suggested should have been altered a bit to ensure... Read More the cake's stability. I think the fact that I had to travel had played a part. Additionally, the construction of the cake was lacking additional support. All of these things led to the 3 tiered grooms cake I spent a long time planning and keeping a secret (nearly impossible for me) crumbling before I was even 30 minutes away from the bakery. I will say, WOW Factor did offer a credit and I accepted. I was able to salvage two of the tiers of the cake and my husband was happy to see the thought I had put into the design. We also ordered a small one tiered cake to cut as a married couple and it was delicious and beautiful. Long story short - would I order again from Wow Factor... probably, but I would be a bit more cautious on the design.

Believe it or not, as the groom, I was left with the task of finding our wedding cake. I LOVE sugar and my now wife not as much. WOW Factor brought the perfect blend that took me by surprise.

One bonus was that they work with the Hilton and I was able to have my cake included in my package and pay one vendor. We had enough cake for everyone to enjoy but because the cake was so delicious, the family got ahold of the top piece so I guess we will have to come back on our anniversary and get another one.
